My name is Latife A. Whittington
I'm a portrait photographer currently based in Federal Way, Washington. It all started with an Intro to the Digital Camera course at a small-town community college. I was in the 8th grade, the time when you start questioning what you want to be when you’re all grown up. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. It was a random day during my 4th period U.S. History class when my history teacher passed out tiny 4x5 flyers that were from the local community college in town. They were offering middle schoolers and high schoolers a handful of evening courses to enroll in at no cost while also earning college credits. The courses were limited, most were welding-related but there was one that stood out to me, Intro to the Digital Camera obviously lol. Long story short, this is where I discovered my love and passion for photography.
My photography style is all about capturing natural, candid moments. I love capturing spontaneous, unguarded moments, moments that reveal true personalities in whichever environment I find myself in. Whether I’m shooting fashion photos in a flower field, helping a local business owner update their branding photos, or shooting a mini session that is a part of someone's self-love journey, my goal is to bring your vision and ideas to life and to create photographs that are authentic, emotional, and timeless.
Thanks to the community college courses I’ve taken throughout my middle school and high school years, my A.S., and a B.F.A. with an emphasis in Photography I have a deep understanding of light, composition, and color. However, I’m not afraid of experimenting with new techniques and finding new ways to push the boundaries of my craft.
Thank you for visiting my website, I look forward to bringing your vision to life!
