Births come in all different shapes and sizes. I’m often overwhelmed over being a birth photographer after a long all nighter waiting for a little one to arrive. Those stories are powerful and beautiful in so many ways even in the waiting but there is nothing that gets me back on my feet and ready for the next birth journey than witnessing a birth that is whirlwind fast and exciting.

I got the “maybe its labor, maybe I can sleep on it” type text right around midnight. I quickly jumped in bed (i know all the mixed sleep patterns leave me a bit of a late nighter now a days :P) I was hoping to grab any bit of sleep I could because I knew from Lauren’s first birth that when things pick up, they could go fast. Her first birth had everyone surprised and her photographer made it just after her sweet first boy was born. So I didn’t want that to happen at all so I was definitely on edge trying to grab some sleep.

Not 2 hours later and I got the second text that they were all headed to the birth center, but weren’t sure if things were really that progressed. Me and their wonderful doula, Sarah Stanley, both felt the same way and waited only a bit before just jumping in our cars and heading her way. better to be safe than sorry with a mom with a fast labor history.

I arrived about 15 minutes later to see momma already in the tub breathing through her labor like a total goddess and her sweet sleepy boy curiously watching on as mom happily explained that baby was coming. Typically moms aren’t encouraged to get into the birthing tub until active labor is for sure so seeing her there was a good sign that I had made the right decision to just go and meet them there. Lauren was handling things so peacefully that you would have guessed we had hours to go. We all settled in and Sarah arrived to give their little boy some sweet sibling doula love. They were in and out with his curiosity until he pretty much fell asleep in the birth-center’s family waiting area, where i have spent many a night (way more comfy than a hospital waiting room, so thank you WBWC)

As we all sat in the room it was quiet with the occasional laugh filling the room as Lauren worked effortlessly in the tub. At one point she decided to get out, I can’t recall whether it was to try something different or use the restroom but she just stood up. Things got extra intense all in that moment. She moved to the bed to lean over some pillows and work through labor in a different position. I was there with her but still thinking this is simply just a change of pace. We all thought this was just a moment of contractions intensifying so much that her sweet partner went out to check on their little boy and see if he could switch with Sarah to come and help do some hip squeezes to help Lauren through these intense labor waves. Within moments baby Alec was born, right into the arms of their incredibly ready midwife, Emily. I was in the perfect place but pretty much in shock because it was not until the splash of her waters breaking that I even looked down to watch as little Alec came fast furiously into the world. Lauren was even in a little shock asking for a couple breaths and pause before lifting her sweet little boy up to her chest for the first time.

Daddy rushed in moments later to the perfect smile of pride on Lauren’s face that said everything with just a look of, “meet out little boy.” It was everything just to get to watch their joy fill the room as they loved on this precious new life. He was a little bruised from his fast entrance into the world but already so calm and sweet and ready for cuddling. After an hour or so of mom and dad bonding they woke Alec’s big brother to come and meet him. Not so sure about this new little bundle of joy, Bryce watched with sweetness as he saw his whole world change. We all watched as the wheels turned in his head with curiosity. I’m so glad I got to check in with them a few weeks later to capture their sweet family session! I promise to have that up soon :) but for now I just want to bask in this incredibly and fast and beautiful birth.

The adrenaline of fast births is really unlike anything else, it’s so hard to come down to the real world :P With every story I tell and life i get to witness enter the world, I’m blown away and honored by this job. Thank you to this beautiful family for openly sharing their journey for others to see and experience. All births are unique and beautiful and the more we see and know the better prepared the next generation of capable strong women will be to meet birth with their innate power!

James M. Birth Story

Raleigh-Durham Birth Photographer and Videographer

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.

If you want to learn more about having these powerful moments that change your life captured, reach out to me anytime, here :)

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.
