2018 A Year In Review: Part 2

2018 A year in Review

Part 2

The Year of Commitment

I am not a disciplined person. If you spent a minute to read Part One of this year’s review you’d see I barely scraped by with New year goals for 2018. It’s honestly never even been a goal of mine (to be more disciplined) but here I sit in 2019 and I really need it. Now the word discipline sounds awful to me, very restricting and suffocating so I’m going with Commitment. I’ve let creativity and honesty be my greatest characteristics for so long and while I love those parts about me, it’s starting to feel like I’m not super involved in my happiness. Because I don’t push myself to stay on track or finish a goal, I’m really just letting my days pass by. I want to be more committed this year to more than just my business and husband because i have the capacity for more. I want to fully commit 2019 to achieving personal goals, lifestyle changes and ambitions. I want to feel successful, this time next year and like some or even all of the intentions below were really invested in.

I want to be active and exercise everyday.

I want to eat better and learn more about what my body can handle and can’t.

I want to limit the amount of time I spend watching tv and comparing myself to others on the internet.

I want to be way more selfless to my partner ( like i want to be one of those wives everyone thinks loves their husband TOO much and does TOO much for his arrogant ass) Because that’s not at all me and probably wont ever be but I want to give it a try :P

I want to photograph more and more births, and meet more women who just understand that birth and art can truly be melded together and that it’s worth it to invest in your moments.

I want to meet more people and like more people unconditionally.

I want to learn how to love myself too and be proud of where I am.

I want to get back into my painting, drawing and journaling. That used to be my way of finding peace, calming anxiety and expressing my heart but now a days I just pour a glass of wine and watch the Office and hope the anxiety will go away.

I want to not sleep in so much (even though I love it) a successful person gets up early and I want a little more feeling of that success.

These aren’t really my “goals” per say because I really can’t take another year of feeling like I achieved no personal goals. But they are my ambitions for this coming year and I am speaking it into existence right now that I will be a more committed person. It doesn’t happen overnight and I’m trying to be more gracious about that but I’m also trying to look at the word committed and discipline not as a sentencing to a boring life but to a better and happier life because I’m putting more into it rather than letting it happen to me.

2018 was a happy year. I got to photograph so many stories that have shaped me for the better. My business grew from a little transplanted seedling to a full on garden that is still growing. I traveled and saw elephants, lions, leopards and all the other African animals so many may never see. I created a project I’m so proud of called The Motherhood Project that allowed me to get creative and learn so much more about womanhood and motherhood; thank you Lindsay for making this past year and project so amazing. So please do not misunderstand my goals for 2019, they are coming from a place of wanting to just be committed to the changes I want to see and opening myself to have the capacity to really experience more.

Thank you to all my people and I look forward to another year creating! If you’ve chosen a name for 2019 I would love to hear it so please leave it in the comments!

And of course this collection of images below are my favorites(atleast part two of my favorites), they are full of the raw and powerful quality I want my work to express. There is nudity and there is blood in some of my work, yes, but I think there is so much power and beauty in our bodies and I just couldn’t censor my favorites. All photos have been approved and released by the client for sharing.

2018 A Year In Review: Part 1

2018 A Year In Review

Part One

Wow I cannot believe 2018 has already come and gone. I think in so many ways it’s been my hardest and best year yet. We moved last Fall(2017) to North Carolina and with that brought a lot of hope but also a lot of resistance on my part. Mostly because I really loved our time in Kansas City and I was finally feeling healthy and ready to move into growing up my business. But life has other plans and I accepted that challenge of basically restarting again.

It was a very long and hard start of the year. Trying to connect, balance, restart and really just energize myself. In a lot of ways I felt like I really failed, I could only really put energy into my business and that felt pretty pointless at times. You see starting fresh with people, attempting to get your work in front of your community and also being full time, working from home and by yourself are hard shit. :P

I remember so many days of waking up and feeling like I had nothing on the calendar and no one to complain to. My husband was in school full time getting a very draining masters degree and working at a big IT company, while still being awesome and loving. (He still is in school at-least until May) So it felt like a lot of “patience” was needed. Which coincidentally was my word last year :P I needed so badly to be patient with myself, my business, the community and to also stay committed to my vision as an artist and business owner.

I was looking back on my post last year and saw I had created three goals for the year. Life doesn’t really work in goals for me, I’m realizing :P I can put tangible numbers down and I can put passions and intentions into existence but all of them are big and take SO much time! ie. I need Patience

So my first goal was getting healthy and guess what, I was not very brave this year. A lot of my health issues have really been about me being a little too cowardly to seek out healing and change for my body and life. I woke up most days excited to change and lot of a days already defeated. As if I was a in pit with no ladder or rope and I had been screaming for help for weeks. If you’ve ever watched that one James Franco movie where he cuts his arm off, that’s how I feel and yet I have yet to cut my arm off and get help and its been a few years :P Again I am starting this year with hope for change and hope for a healthier life. I’ve already booked an appointment (well Chris booked it ) for getting a more natural path for my health since more western health things have really not been in my favor. But I also know there is a chance I’ll fail again.

My second resolution was to love myself better and that literally moves in inches. ie “patience”

I know I’m only sounding hopeless BUT I do think if nothing else my third resolution has over and above been met. I wanted to change the people I worked with for photography, only work with those who really got the art I was creating. And oh my gosh, I have met some of the most incredible people and stayed connected to the people who have always gotten the art I was creating! I got to do double the in home sessions. Only emotion filled, laidback and connected photography which has been my passion and goal for SO long!

I also wanted to shoot more births… and if you’ve been following along at all, it’s now my number one thing! I hit my goal of double and then surpassed it. And I feel overwhelmingly excited to have photographed so many powerful women and celebratory birth days. From hospital births, to home and birth center births, to fast births to slowwww births! But seriously each one told such an inspirational story. I was completely honored to be there to capture each one. I only photographed 1 wedding in the end and it was for the best couple in the whole world! I really feel so thankful for the photography year I’ve had. I want to keep growing, expanding and learning.

This collection of images are my favorites(atleast part one of my favorites), they are full of the raw and powerful quality I want my work to express. There is nudity and there is blood in some of my work, yes, but I think there is so much power and beauty in our bodies and I just couldn’t censor my favorites. All photos have been approved and released by the client because my people just get the work I’m creating :)

I’ll be posting hopefully this next week my part 2 with a few probably unachievable goals and of course the word for 2019 (which I’ve yet to decide on:P)

Heather & Tommy

Heather & Tommy: A Celebration of Motherhood

An organic floral milk bath session to commemorate their sweet breast feeding journey together.

It is almost impossible to put into words the bond of a mother and child. It is an unfathomable depth and comes in so many different forms. To take a moment and celebrate the highs and lows of these different motherhood seasons is so powerful. We often forget to even take a mental note let alone a photograph of these seasons. Breastfeeding is such a powerful part of the motherhood experience. It feels like such a raw surrender to someone else. To push your body into producing, providing and protecting in the way that feels beyond ourselves. It’s hard, it’s sacrificial but the bond is so beautiful and brief.

I loved being able to celebrate this season with Heather and Tommy. To bottle up these moments so they weren’t forgotten. To take a moment and recognize this mom in all her beauty and selflessness. To make this mom of three boys feel elegant and fun with a colorful flower crown. To recognize this little boy in all his tenderness and curiosity. And to truly capture the bond and joy that this season is for them.

Hanna Hill Photography

Days for,

Raleigh-Durham, NC and Kansas City, MO 

Hi! This Summer has been so busy and yet has gone by in a blink of an eye! I have been hard at work with birth photography here in Durham, NC but always in my heart are these family sessions. I seriously feel pure joy just watching my families grow and change with each year and getting to capture the life and authenticity of childhood and parenthood! 

I'm so excited to be able to announce these Autumn Mini sessions! They are always so long awaited by those who follow me on social media and always my favorite way to get my family chaos and love dose for the year!  Can't wait to connect with so many local families as my first year running Mini Sessions here in Raleigh-Durham and to finally set aside a couple days to come back out to Kansas City too, just to catch up and capture some of my favorite past clients!

These sessions are perfect for families wanting to get updated family moments captured. So request your session ASAP!

Like all of my sessions, it is my goal for each session to feel laidback and natural to you and your family. I want to connect with you and your kiddos so that the pressure is completely off. I definitely will take part of or time to get that more standard smiling photo for you guys to have but most of my session is filled with capturing the in between moments, the laughs, snuggles, kisses and seconds of quiet. So you probably wont hear me saying, "say cheese" the whole time but more like hey "who can be the silliest" or "who can squeeze mom the most!" I love being able to take our time and capture the chaos and joy of growing with your family so don't be worried about getting them to sit still for all 30 minutes, we will play and capture the life and exploration of childhood and create beautiful moments for you to always treasure about these season.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book? 

Click one of the "Request a Date and Time Here" links above. Or Here! All session requests come through me! I'll answer questions and then send you the contract followed by the invoice for payment. All contracts must be signed and invoices paid within 24 hours of request in order to confirm your slot. Out of fairness to everyone, I cannot hold any session times beyond that point. I'll respond to requests in the order that I receive them. Please NO FACEBOOK or INSTAGRAM Messages, please. 

What Should I wear?

This is a great question! This year I want to encourage all of my clients to really take time to get a little dressed up(while still feeling comfy) to make these incredible photos that much more special. My style of photographing is very laidback, emotive and intended to bring out the natural joy and beauty of your family, but that doesn't mean getting a little styled wont take these family moments to the next level :) I'm linking below a Pinterest board for inspiration but I would love to be in contact before then if you have some outfit combination ideas! I'll also send a couple "dos and dont's" once we are officially confirmed! 

https://www.pinterest.com/hannahillphotog/wardrobe-inspiration/

What Should we bring? 

Always bring a blanket! I'll have a very neutral one in my car this year just in case but there is nothing like a family quilt or colorful throw to add a little pop of personality to your session. We will do a mixture of walking, standing, sitting, snuggling and even lying down if the organic mood strikes us, so be sure to have something to relax on other then the cold ground.

Also leave the snacks in the car but definitely bring along books or small toys if your little one may need a little distracting. These sessions are fun, not posey in anyway so letting them wander and explore, pick up sticks or flowers is definitely allowed (and a little encouraged)

Can we bring our pets?

Sadly, no pets allowed this year :( If you would like to upgrade your session to a full family session to include your favorite pups, rabbits or whatever animal in your home you treasure, please let me know as soon as possible and I will do my best accommodate you and your family this Fall! Unfortunately the limited time frame of these sessions just doesn't give us what we need to balance little ones, snuggles and wiggle animals. 

(KC families may be a little more limited since I am only in town a limited amount of time, but still feel free to reach out)

How many images will I receive?

Included with each session is 8 Hand-edited, high-resolution images with a personal print release. You will receive access to an online viewing gallery of edited files(15-30) for you to select your favorite 8 for download. 

You will also be able to additional photos or purchase the entire gallery if you would like! 

How long will my session last?

Sessions will last 30-35 minutes from "hello" to "see ya soon!" It is important to be about 5-10 minutes early so that everyone is ready when we meet and prepared to walk up or down to our exact location! 

Where will the session take place?

Each "Mini Session Block" has a specific location. Where to meet will be sent at confirmation of booking or right before our session. All spots will have some walking so be sure to where comfy/walkable shoes.

What happens if the weather doesn't cooperate?

Overcast, even drizzly weather can make for good photographs...Umbrellas and rain coats are adorable and fun!! But, I do understand that it’s not feasible for all situations. On the day of our Session I will make the call on whether we will try and attempt or not, I will do my best to move sessions around to get everyone photographed within the day. But if the weather is truly pouring down and we have really no choice... 

For KC families I will have availability on Monday morning/afternoon October 8th for make up sessions before I leave town. 

For Raleigh/Durham families your session will be moved to the following day (SUNDAY) same time and location

Can we use our slot for Maternity or Couples photos? 

Yes!

If you are expecting a little one or celebrating your love, you are welcome to book these Autumn Mini Sessions! 

Is there a limit on how many can come to the session? 

Yes,

since we are limited on time only immediate family is welcome to your session slot (ie. parents and children) If you would like to include grandparents or share you session with other family, just let me know and we can upgrade your session to an Extended family session this Fall and customize it to a location and time that works for the whole family!

Rowan K. Fresh 48

A Cozy Fresh 48 Story in Durham, NC |

Duke University Hospital

Rowan K. 

Give me all the expressive baby faces and snuggly hospital rooms! There is something so special and a little transcendent about entering a hospital space after your little one is born. It's like the exhaustion and joy, healing and contentedness are all mixed up in the air. It's a really beautiful feeling! Sometimes I'm worried to enter because it feels like bubble I'm not sure I should be apart of, but once i see the moments, the affectionate touches and snuggles. I know my purpose. I'm there to capture that bubble of a moment for you. To give you back the feeling of that space. To remind you of the sacredness of those first few hours and days together before you went home and life truly began. 

So excited to finally share the story of little Rowan. This hospital space was the perfect example of what I love about Fresh 48 sessions. First time baby and entering into a world of so much love from his mom and dad. The air was filled with hope and new life. Mom and dad were figuring things out only about 30-40 hours as parents and they were so beautifully in tune with their little one. 

If you have ever considered a Fresh 48 Story, I would love to talk! These are a perfect way to capture your unique birth journey without having to commit to full on birth photography! Your little one grows and changes so fast, capturing the little details of when they first arrived are seriously priceless!
