Always be Xtrodinary
I’m Essence, the owner/photographer at Essence Latifah Photography. I am absolutely crazy about photography! I love capturing the genuine uniqueness that makes up each Senior.
I love individualizing every session for each senior. These are your photos so let make sure you have fun and let your personality shine through. If you are into acting, let's shoot at a theater on stage. If you are the star football player lets shoot in your uniform on the field. If you love music, we'll shoot on a stage, making you a rock star.

Class of 2020
I had a blast. She helped me style my clothing and with my accessories. I was going for a rebel look and she helped me achieve it. I felt like she really took the time to get to know me and it shows in my photos.
Class of 2019
I came up from Florida to get my Senior portraits done in NYC. I had a blast and Essence did a great job choosing the perfect locations. I was very pleased with my photos and experience with Essence Latifah Photography.
Class of 2019
Essence was very patient and helped me get comfortable in front of the camera. The poses really help compliment my shape. I would definitely do this again if I can.
