Your personality is integral to your brand (or you want it to be)

You need unique imagery that captures who you are and what you do in a way that stands out from the competition. You want to use these images to help you craft your personal brand and connect on a deeper level with your ideal clients.

You want to show up more consistently and professionally online

You need a ton of variety so you don't feel like you are posting content from the same session over and over again. You need someone to guide you through how to gain a large library of imagery in a short amount of time and not feel like you have to plan everything by yourself.

You adore bright, joyful family photos

I believe that timeless images are bright (but not washed out), colorful, crisp (another way of saying sharp focus), and joyful - which is why I always strive to achieve these results in every session, no matter the weather or your kiddos' moods that day.

You value Memories over Perfection

Life isn't perfect, and I want to help you remember all the real things about whatever season your family is in. But don't worry, I'll be there to help you feel like the best version of yourselves, from giving tips on what to wear, choosing a location, and helping you all feel comfortable from start to finish. I promise we'll have fun!

The entire wedding party complimented her professionalism and their comfortability taking direction from her. There was not an awkward moment all day long and the pictures turned out INCREDIBLE! Her unique styling ideas and lighting expertise made for some of the most wonderful photos I've ever seen! We also had all of our pictures beautifully edited and accessible one week after our wedding! ONE WEEK! Like I said, this girl is the best!

Kira is AMAZing! We were absolutely blown away by her work! My husband and I went to college with Kira and she has always been the most kind, approachable, lovely lady she is today.


i'm very glad we decided to choose kira for our wedding photos. every step of the process with her was positive!

For both our engagement photos and our wedding, she was very encouraging and flexible, and came prepared with lots of her own ideas and direction for us. The photos all turned out great! Will use again!

Not only is Kira the sweetest person that I've ever met, but she is TALENTED... like REALLY, REALLY talented you guys!

Where do I even begin?!  She was so easy to work with and made being in front of a camera feel comfortable. We were blessed to have her take our engagement pictures and our wedding photos. Not only did she take amazing pictures, but she had them edited and delivered to us within a week. Mind you, she provided us with close to 1,000 pictures of our wedding. Highly, highly recommend her!

Beautiful photos, quick turnaround times, and excellent customer interaction is what you can expect from Kira Whitney Photography.

My husband and I had been friends with Kira prior to us hiring her to shoot our engagement and wedding photos. I knew she was good, but after working with her I have a whole new level of respect for Kira as a professional photographer. 

Between the engagement session and the wedding, we received about 1,000 photos from Kira, treated beautifully and delivered in (what felt like) record time. Kira was kind and fun to work with. My husband, who is not a fan of taking photos, even let loose and enjoyed himself! I love the colors, emotions, and memories Kira captured for us. Thank you, Kira!
