Lana Williams Photography Blog | Panama City Beach Photographer bio picture
  • Hello and THANK YOU for taking time out of YOUR busy life to look at the latest updates from Lana Williams Photography. PHOTOGRAPHY is my passion!! I Love, LoVe, LOVE taking photos of people like YOU, it makes my heart smile.

    My photography business is located in Panama City, Florida. I specialize in Newborn, Maternity and Boudoir Photography. I LOVE encouraging women to feel great about themselves and what better way than to dress up sexy and have photos taken! If you've ever wanted that "Special" photo for that certain someone, but didn't know who to ask, now you do!

    I also Love to shoot Beach Portraits here in the Florida Panhandle on our sugar white sand beaches and what can I say about engagement sessions, you guessed it, Love them too!

    Yes, I know, I have used the word "LOVE" a lot, but I do Love what I do and it's how I feel. I hope I can share my love for photography with you. Please subscribe to the RSS feed which will notify you when I have posted a new update on the blog. Lovin Life, Lana

Our Last Beach Trip- (Panama City Beach Photographer)

Jenniffer, a friend and fellow photographer, emailed me asking if I had time to do a Beach Lifestyle Shoot .  As most of you know, whatever profession you are in, you seem to not have enough time to take care of your own family in the same way you do for others.  Meaning she didn’t have a current family beach portrait even though she has taken hundreds for others.  Time was short to schedule the shoot as they were packing to move within the week.  We chose the date and prayed it would not rain as the forecast predicted!  Well it turned out to be one of the most gorgeous mornings that we’d seen in several days.   We had a great time and they were willing to try anything I asked them to do, hence “THE PYRAMID”.  You guys were awesome!  Best wishes for you new life out West, come back to visit us soon. 



Lacy & Cory Married!

First I have to say Happy 4th of July everyone…yes, I am at the studio working today and that’s okay with me.  I am so thankful that I live in a country where I have the freedom to do whatever I want to, when I want to, and I will never forget why I have this freedom.  Thanks to our great military past and present for giving us this freedom!  God Bless the USA!

  Now back to Lacy & Cory Married….Those of you that know me know that I’ve been a Realtor for Century 21 Commander Realty for the past 8 years.  Through Real Estate I have met a lot of wonderful people, Lacy Kirkland being one of them.  Lacy is not a client of mine, but a co-worker.  I always enjoyed being around Lacy, she is such a sweet and upbeat person.  Just look at her smile… how could you not be in a good mood when you see her grinning from ear to ear?!  She introduced Cory to us at a Christmas party a couple of years ago and they were just adorable together.  For those of you that know Cory you know he is a MAJOR sports fan, especially for FSU, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Braves.  SO…. you will not be surprised to see him checking his Blackberry for the latest sports updates on a regular basis.  In fact when I arrived to shoot a few pictures of the guys getting ready they were actually watching a ball game on TV, see following photos for the proof!  Well enough said as I know all of you want to see the photos of their beautiful wedding set at Lacys parents home.  Thank you Lacy and Cory for letting me be a part of your special day….AND special thanks to Kimberly Petty for second shooting with me!

Happy Anniversary BK!

I am truly blessed to have many great friends, I really am!  Barry and Karen or “BK” as Chan and I refer to them, have been our close friends for many years.  Chan and I were honored to be asked to join them at their wedding atop Eagle Glacier in Juneau, Alaska 5 short years ago.  When Barry called to ask if I would do an anniversary photo session for them, I was as excited as I was when I did the wedding shoot on the glacier.  They only wanted a “few” photos to commemorate this anniversary….. well, if you know me, you are not going to get just a “few” photos from one of my shoots.  They humored me and let me take some of them at their lovely home and then we walked across the street to our beautiful beach to end the day.  Thank you BK for letting us share this special day with you, and we are looking forward to many more anniversaries to come!  Love Y’all Bunches!

 I asked Chan to scan this photo below and email it to me so I could include it in this post.  Not the best quality being a scan, but you get the picture!

YOU Can Lose 175 pounds, I DID!
