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

Sweet Babies!


Alexis & Alliyah, what precious babies!  They were born premature and have had a rough time over the past 8 months.  In fact Alliyah was released from the hospital a week before these photos were taken.  Alexis was sound asleep when they arrived at the studio and it took her Mother several minutes to wake her up.  Once she was awake we tried our best to get the girls to smile….. we sang, we clapped, we waved hands we even danced a little, but these two were not impressed by our craziness.  Considering the health of these sweet little girls I am pleased with the photos we shot.  We plan to take them again on their 1st Birthday….I’ll be practing my dance routine before then and hope to get some smiles!

Latasha Hansen - These pictures remind me of my lil girl. She was born at 24wks (4months early) weighing 1 lb. 3.8oz and was sent home on oxygen too. After her heart surgery she did alot better. She is now 2 1/2 and you would never guess she was that small. I would love for you to do some pictures for us.Those lil girls are so cute. God Bless them and their family.

Do I look like my Mom?

Happy Monday Everyone….okay it’s actually Tuesday 1:00 am.  This seems to be a habit now, I start working on the blog late evening and find myself already into the next day before I’m finished.  It’s just I enjoy it so much I find it hard to find a stopping place.   Today, I mean yesterday, was a wonderful day for me.  I was able to spend it with two of my all time favorite people in the whole entire world, my Mom & Dad.  My parents will celebrate their 49th Anniversary this summer.  They are salt of the earth and go over and beyond the call of duty as parents.  Mom is proving this first hand as you will see in the following pictures and so was Dad because he stepped in when asked.  I thought it would be nice to have a before and after shoot for Mother and I.  It’s been a long since she and I have had photos taken together and I wanted a few more pictures to use for Before and After advertising.  I must give special thanks to my Hair and Makeup Artist Renee Byrd, as she “beautified” Mom and Me for the before and after shoot….and of course Thank You Mom for letting me post pictures of you without Makeup, you’re the BEST MOM EVER and still so PRETTY!!

Mardi Gras was HUGE @ PCB!

The Mardi Gras Parade at Pier Park on Panama City Beach was a HUGE success today.  Even with the wind blowing  (and temps in the 50′s) it did not stop the masses from coming out to take part in all the fun.  Next weekend will be the St. Andrews Mardi Gras Parade here locally so get ready for another great weekend! If you’re not a local consider coming to Panama City and join us for a fun filled day!
