Welcome to Libby Zanders Photography

Hi there! I'm Libby and I’m a photographer living in Kansas City, Kansas.

Early in high school I was inspired by the preciousness of my family’s photo albums and began shooting on my father’s 1980 Canon AE-1 35mm camera. Influenced by fashion and rock and roll photography, I started documenting my friends of the DIY music community during our travels and adventures, spending hours in the darkroom. I earned my B.A. in photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) where I also experimented with film and printmaking. I’ve been working professionally since 2011.

I have a passion for capturing relationships and finding the natural personalities within every subject, from families to corporate images to sweethearts in love. I have a background in branding, headshots for individuals and teams, editorial work, wedding/event documentation and portraiture, and BTS stills for film productions.

I love to play, collect and listen to music, and I love to travel the country whenever I can. You’ll find me spending my free time laughing with my family and friends far and wide.

Please reach out, I look forward to creating some images with you!
