Latrina is a blogger and photographer who currently resides in the gorgeous state of California. She’s inspired by life, color, trees and the ocean. She is completely captivated by nature and the endless possibilities of exploration, and can often be found wandering off somewhere in the wilds capturing life in all it’s glory.
She’s incredibly passionate and believes that the bigger the dreams — the better. She’s a nostalgic, ambitious, warmhearted gal who thrives on living an adventurous life, one filled with new experiences, explorations and lots and lots of happy moments.
Of Trees and Hues started in the fall of 2012, shortly after Latrina moved from Tennessee to California, in efforts to document her travels and life stories. Over the years, Of Trees and Hues has evolved into a lifestyle + design blog — a place to curate beauty and inspiration as well as to encourage others to live enriched and adventurous lives. Latrina greatly enjoys being a part of the creative community and, through Of Trees and Hues, she strives to foster support and a sense of togetherness in the creative world.

Discover yourself. Use your blog as a creative tool for self-discovery, share the things that make your heart swell, and not what everyone else is doing. I recently wrote a blog post about this very thing!
