The Birth of Baby James and

the first time motherhood journey of Amanda

A peaceful and patient birth center birth at Baby Co. in Cary, NC

The woman’s body knows how,

The body has intuition and power beyond what society tries to limit,

The body is made to carry, nourish and birth life,

There should never be a moment when we doubt the body of a woman.

It was a peaceful rainy morning when i got the call/text from Amanda that this little one was on the way. We had chatted throughout the night about early contractions and some waters breaking but when I finally got the call that they were heading into the birth center I was so ecstatic. I got myself ready and headed to Baby Co. in Cary. When I arrived Amanda was about 6 cm and handling each contraction like a champ. Evan, her husband, was a constant source of love and support. He waited and held her and gave her words of love and encouragement. Amanda had such a profound focus through each wave and you could only hear in the room the primal and beautiful moans of motherhood and the sweet whispers from Evan, constantly repeating, “you can do this, just keep doing that, i love you”

Soon afterI arrived those moans grew into a powerful vocalization which let all of us know that this baby was coming down and that we were close. The midwives of Baby co were so attentive and amazing. They kept her moving and changing positions to help that little one move as seamlessly and swiftly down. Amanda moved from tub, to bed, back to tub , birthing stool and finally delivered right there on the bed being held by her love to welcome their precious little boy, who they named James Zion.

In the moments when Amanda was not sure she could do much more, her body took up the slack and intuitionally pulled them both through. And in the moments when her body was ready to give into the exhaustion, Amanda’s incredible focus and readiness to meet her baby boy overcame everything else. It was a powerful sentiment to the intuition and focus of the woman’s body. For a first time mom to move through her contraction and labor with so much ease and persistence was so inspiring to see. Her peace and comfort in the space and those around her were so evident too.

And that moment when she saw baby James for the first time was an emotion filled moment I will never forget. So much pure joy and waves of accomplishment flooded Amanda and Evan. Their connection with James was so immediate. You could feel their tender love for one another and this little gift just pouring out in buckets. The moment they introduced him to her mom and dad waiting in the other room was completely unadulterated pride and happiness. To be able to share their little gift with family and feel that sense of “i did this, we did this, look at who we made.” was such a beautiful sight and brought me to tears!

I am constantly blown away and honored to have the permission to capture such life changing moments for families. Especially those first time moms. The walk through those first 9 months of pregnancy is one of so much unknown and powerful emotion that all comes to this mountainous release when they meet their little one. Those moments are palpable and powerful and I love that documenting these types of moments are my life’s passion.

Titus L: Birth Story Revisited

Titus L. : Birth Story Revisited | 1 Year later

One year ago today this little one was brought into the world. Photographing births has always been a deep passion of mine; one that truly felt reignited by this little guy's birth. I remember walking out the hospital the morning he was born and literally jumping because I had finally been reunited with my passion. Watching Ellen fiercely work through her contractions, make hard choices, fight through the exhaustion while still maintaining this pure sense of peace and joy that she would soon meet her son was just the amount of empowerment I needed to see. Whatever fear she felt she continuously fought against it. I remember the room being filled with their birth playlist which was this incredible mixture of soft hymns and the most joyful gospel music you can think of. I remember how after sleeping in the hospital room all night we woke up to this gorgeous morning light. I remember looking up to see Jaremy just holding Ellen's hand, laughing and praying with her knowing that their little boy would be there soon. That morning light made each photo and moment that much more hopeful and captivating. It streamed through the room just as Titus was brought earth side and I remember thinking "my god, this job is everything." 

You may be wondering, why is Hanna rewriting and sharing a blog post from one year ago when she is 15-30 blog posts behind. Well thats a great question. I realized that in one year my passion for birth photography has grown like a wildfire in my spirit. My style and desire to capture that authentic, raw emotion that is present in every sacred birthing space has only solidified. That spirit and style was just re-beginning when I wrote this story last year. I was just remembering a passion I held a little captive in my heart. Without even reason I found myself going back through this birth and finding new details and moments I had lost when I posted it before. I found myself reworking the color, light and composition and wanted to be able to share it again in celebration of both growth as a business and my passion for this work. This new blog for me is a reflection, reinvigoration of an already beautiful story just with a new perspective one year later. I obviously won't be able to reblog every birth each year as my style grows and changes but there really was something so special about this birth that made me feel pretty much just called to re share and retell it in a new way.

Santiago : Birth Story

Santiago : A Family Centered Home Birth

Hanna Hill Photography | Raleigh Birth and Family Photographer

Santiago's birth was one of fierce strength and the epitome of what a family centered birth can really be like. Home birth is such a sacred and incredible way to bring your child into the world. There is just a sense of peace and comfort by being in your own space surrounded by the people you love and the atmosphere you've made home. It's hard to put into words really. Behind every birth there is a lot of fear, anticipation and worry about all the things that may or may not go wrong. It's why most women choose a hospital to bring their little one into the world. In so many ways that makes sense and I love those hospital birth just as much. But home births are in and of them selves accepting that birth is empowering and that you were actually built to handle a birth. That sense of strength and vitality always puts a completely different vibe into the air. A vibe of "you can do it" "you are strong" and "this is a true celebration." 

The morning Santiago came into the world I woke to a text at around 5:00am. I was actually on call as backup for his arrival not the main photographer. In the world of birth photography having a back up is absolutely essential. As much as all of us want to be 24/7 available to out clients, life also happens and births are so unpredictable. I love that in the birthing community there really is a sense of friendship and community because just having someone else that you trust who's art is also beautiful and qualified brings you a sense of peace rather than competition. 

So back to the story I woke up to a text from the main photographer Anna, of Anna Pollit.com, saying mom was in labor and that baby was coming today. Santiago's momma was on her 3rd baby so I knew that meant probably a swift labor but honestly had no idea how quick this little guy would arrive. I woke up showered and waited from a text from the mom to hear how far along things were coming. By the time I was done and dressed she had texted and was seriously ready for me to head that way. When I arrived I was met with the smell of home cooked soup, two sleepy brothers who had just woken up to all the commotion and a momma fiercely laboring. 

She was a true warrior, one minute she was laughing and joking with her two year old son and the second she was peacefully yet intensely working through her contractions. The two big brothers were seriously making us all laugh, they were so incredibly excited to witness and meet their new little brother. The oldest just kept saying, "I'm so excited to meet him." and would run in every once and while to check if his little brother was on his way or not. The family focused vibe was so incredible and beautiful. This momma wanted those she loved to surround her and Santiago with as much relaxed and positive energy as possible. 

I was seriously only there about 2 hours before this little boy was ready to come and see his family. This momma maybe pushed 3 times and he was out and crying, ready to meet his new family. The emotions in the room were uncontrollable, so many tears and laughs filled those first moments. Their oldest son just was over the moon that he now had another little brother to love on and their second son was so curious about how his life had just changed before his eyes.

I got to stay and watch this family of 4 become 5 and it was an incredible sight to see.I got to capture all of those incredible firsts that happen right after he comes into the world from his first feeding to getting his measurements done. It really was such an honor to be apart of this birth and seeing the incredible joy and celebration that comes along with telling birth stories.
