Nestled in the small mid American town of WaKeeney, Kansas is where you will find the full service portrait studio of Leann’s Photos. Even though we have elected to live in a fabulous small town, our studio is of generous size, approximately 2700 sq. feet, which accommodates several photographic sets and allows us to use multiple and different lighting techniques to make our client’s portrait sessions what they should be; a wonderful and pleasant experience with fabulous wall decor for their home!
In 2013 Leann earned her PPA Certified Photographer accreditation. The process included passing a written 100 question exam supervised by a member of the national PPA testing team. A group of fifteen images were then submitted for review by the certification board. A very limited number of photographers have passed this process and are able to display the emblem.
The passion of photography and art is what built this business from the ground level up. Customer service along with hard work, always feeding the hunger of learning more, the adventure to explore new ideas and the willingness to go that extra length is what has made us strong and who we are. The love of photographing people to preserve memories is a great joy and something I hold dear. It’s a great feeling to know that when our clients look at their portraits there will come a rush of memories; memories of a time in their loved one’s life as well as their own..... that is a great feeling to know that we could help capture those precious memories.
Not only do I love the capturing of the portraits but the ability to work with the portraits and create unique and original works of art. In our galleries you will find digital hand paintings, composite art pieces and other special and unique works.
Leann’s Photos is a member of the KPPA (Kansas Professional Photographer’s Association) and the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) Association. We regularly attend schooling and seminars to stay in the forefront of technology and techniques in our portrait business to better serve our clients.
Leann was elected to the KPPA board of directors in 2014 and served as President of the board for the 2017/2018 year.
