Making Arkansans Look Good


I have fully embraced the new trends in what is often called lifestyle photography. Our family takes yearly photographs with a local professional who loves the challenge of capturing our crazy family’s life stages.

From anniversary photos on a family farm to Christmas cards shot in a neighborhood supermarket, Little Rock photographer Whitney Loibner has made what used to be considered a chore into a lot of fun for our family. Last year, when we were moving away to the UK for a season, Whitney conceived an incredible traveling photo shoot which we did at the train station in Little Rock.

Whitney is just one of many photographers in our state who are making Arkansans look good these days. So if you are due for a new set of family pictures or if you have a student who is in their senior year of high school, jot down one of these talented individuals and start looking forward to a more creative and authentic approach to family photos. Use your imagination and head to a fun location, bring your kids’ toys and enjoy the moment.

Whitney Loibner loves the challenge of combining fun colors with the textures she finds in the outdoors and around Little Rock. Bottling a season in time through a stylized photo session is one of her specialties.
