documentary photographer

Welcome to Heather Whitten Photography, where every moment is celebrated, exactly as it is.

I'm on a mission to redefine how we see and celebrate our bodies and tell our life's stories. My journey behind the lens is driven by a deep-seated belief that everyone deserves to feel powerful and valued through every stage of life.

With accolades in national photography circles and a passion for storytelling, I offer personalized intimate portrait and documentary birth & family sessions in Maryland and beyond.
