You don’t need a perfect day or just the right weather conditions when you choose a photographer who knows what they’re doing. Trust your precious family moments to a professional photographer and you’ll have heirloom portraits you can pass down to your children and grandchildren. That’s exactly the quality service you will get with Cherokee County’s newest professional photographer. Official ribbon cutting ceremonies were held on Monday afternoon at the Cherokee County Administration Building for Leann Hill Photography.
Leann Hill Photography, based in Leesburg, Alabama, opened for business in January 2017 and specializes in family portraits and business, commercial and executive portraits. What began as a love for collecting beautiful postcards of nature from across the country and taking snapshots with a 110 Kodak film camera as a kid turned into a lifelong passion for print photography and learning to capture those moments that require a great deal of technical proficiency to achieve.
Over the last fifteen years, Leann has worked on getting the education and training she felt was necessary before officially going into business. She is nearing completion of obtaining the distinction of Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) through Professional Photographers of America, a title held by only 1% of all professional photographers in the world. The purpose of certification is to acknowledge and validate a consistent standard by which professional photographers can achieve and maintain a recognizable mark of excellence.
“I love having Cherokee County as a backdrop for portraits. When the clients want to step out of the studio setting, I have such a diverse range of scenery to choose from including mountains, lakes, fields, waterfalls and historical locations.”
When asked about how photography is changing in the digital age, Leann says she believes in the importance of printed photographic art. “A cell phone or expensive camera will never replace someone who has invested years into learning photography and a digital file is only going to last as long as the technology it’s stored on, which is typically under 10 years. A print or wall portrait from a professional lab is going to last 100 years or even longer and can be passed down through generations.”
