The Ahnvee Senior Experience

From day one of my photography business journey, I decided that I would specialize in Senior Photography and provide an exceptional and enjoyable experience for graduates. Just as the senior year of high school or college is a unique, fun, and memorable experience, I believe that the senior photography session should be too! The Why Let’s rewind to 2006 Tiffany. I was so busy with my senior year, the yearbook, and extracurriculars that when it came time to book my senior photos, I left that up to my mom. She chose a studio based on recommendations of other mothers – a VERY well known and frequently used photography studio. This being my first experience in front of a professional camera, I had absolutely no idea how to prepare or what to expect. Cue the anxiety. Not only was I extremely nervous and awkward, I showed up in a neon pink sweater. The staff was not warm or personable; I felt like I was a burden and was rushed the entire time. I won’t get into all of the details, but the whole experience was a nightmare and left me with a bad taste in my mouth about professional photography. You […]

Seniors of 2018

I had the pleasure of shooting 27 seniors this past season, and each and every one of them brought something unique to their session.  My goal is always to showcase the personality and talents of each individual client, and this year’s seniors had no shortage of either!  We’ve put together a slideshow of some of the best photos from each senior session this past year.  Our intent with this video is to wish a stylish, personalized congratulations to the grads, as well as shout a big ‘THANK YOU’ to each of you who trusted me with capturing this exciting moment in your life! Just a bit more about each of the talented young men & women showcased in the video above: AINSLEY is a music lover who enjoyed participating in 4-H while in high school.  She plans to attend either ULL or McNeese to study Education, and dreams of someday being an English teacher in Africa.

Professional Labs vs Consumer Labs for Printing

Unless you’re in the photography world, you may not know that there are strong differences in the finished product when choosing where to have your professional images printed.  Not all printing services are created the same, and despite which photographer you choose, each will have their own opinions on where is the best place to have the final images printed.  You will find some similarity between professional opinions, but the one opinion guaranteed across the board with professionals is that consumer photo labs (Walgreens, CVS, Shutterfly, etc) typically produce images that pale in quality comparisons to professional photo labs like WHCC or Miller‘s. As with everything, the proof is often in the contrasts, and we didn’t slack in doing our own homework to see how the more commonly used services measured up against our preferred printer.  Keep in mind that when it comes to art, its creators have a vested interest in the quality you select to display your final images.  We here at Ahnvee Photography care a great deal about the quality of your printed images and therefore, we DO NOT add any additional charges to the existing cost to print from our preferred professional lab, WHCC (White House […]
