About Whitney Ann, Central Louisiana’s Photographer
Hey guys! I’m Whitney Ann, the face behind Whitney A Photography (WA Photography). We are a military family and are making our rounds around the US. We’ve called Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, New York, and Louisiana home over the last nine years. My husband is currently stationed here in Fort Polk, Louisiana and we absolutely LOVE it! So much that we will call Louisiana home after the Army.
I started my photographic journey back in 2013 and have been head over hills since! I absolutely love my job and helping families by capturing their lifes greatest milestones and turning them into a beautiful piece of artwork. I see my own children light up when mommy gets a new piece of artwork in that showcases them and can’t wait for my clients to experience the same feelings!
A little about me and my business..
I started my photography journey as a mom wanting to document my children’s every waking second and quickly realized it was more than just a hobby when friends and family started asking me to take their photos. I joked around with a girl friend once saying I was going to tag along with her to her husbands welcome home ceremony and play photographer. The memories and emotions captured were enough to pull me in for the long haul.
In 2014 I started my photography business, but it wasn’t until 2015 where it actually took off. By then I had taken several courses to learn the in’s and out of photography and started investing in my education and professional photography equipment.
I’d say within the last year is when I finally found my niche in photography. I love photographing newborns and watching how quickly they grow! From birth to milestones, milestones to their first birthday; documenting their sweet expressions and personalities makes me feel like a part of their family. I truly treasure the images that I have of my sweet littles when they were babies! I love revisiting the emotions that came with them being so itty bitty and love showing them and seeing their eyes light up when they see how little they used to be.
I am a CANON girl! <3 My husband gifted me my first DSLR camera back in 2011 and I’ve been shooting Canon since. A few of my favorite lenses to shoot with are my Canon 24-70mm, Sigma 50mm, Canon 85mm, Canon 100mm macro, and my Canon 200mm. I can’t say I have a specific favorite because I favor specific ones for different things.
