The Meckley Family

The Meckley Family : Durham Nature Preserve Family Photography Session

I love capturing the joy and craziness of siblings. I come from a family of 6 and had one of those beautifully chaotic childhoods and I'm so thankful for it. Having siblings all in your business and always someone to talk to. That's why I really fall in love with sessions that have a few little ones running around with joy. The Meckley family was so much fun to photograph from playing with the sweet older brothers to capturing the sweet snuggles with their little girl. The dynamics of this family are so beautiful. Authentic family moments are my jam, the reason I love what I do.

The Hill Family 

I got to get my brother and his little family in front of my lens last weekend. It's been such a joy moving to North Carolina and being closer to this part of my family. My new little nephew is the sweetest, chubbiest baby angel. He is easy going and smiley, the perfect attributes for any family session. We explored Duke gardens together for the morning and just relaxed as a family capturing the beauty and colors of the garden changing from Summer to Fall. 

I really would not have it any other way than to start of this Family Session season with the people I love. So excited for this October and November and all the beautiful families I'll be capturing! Cheers to Fall, the colors, the family time and praying for cooler weather!

Kate's 3rd Birthday

Kate's 3rd Birthday | Farm Animal Birthday in Kansas City, MO | Hanna Hill Photography

So I'm definitely one of those aunts who waits 2 months to actually share and post the photos from her nieces birthday. My excuses really don't cut it because while we are moving I'm choosing the craziest week (right now) to try and get caught up. No sense is being made over at the Hill-Destigter home! But this cutie turned 3 and had the sweetest Farm birthday party!

The McCoy Family

The McCoy Family | Hanna Hill Photography

Gosh sometimes little ones just need to get out in a field and explore. The cuddling mom and dad moments are  sweet and quick and there are a lot of bubbles and trying to keep the little one out of the mud puddles. But those are the real and beautiful moments behind even the most posed and beautiful session. There are moments of fussy and moments of laughter all mixed in an hour long session. That's the beauty of getting a laid back lifestyle family session. there are no expectations on your little one to be perfect or still, just an attempt to get comfy in front of the camera. I think Max did an incredible job enjoying himself which is always the best kind of subject. I just making sure the little ones are happy, no forcing them to sit or stand or smile just capturing how joyful childhood gets to be.

Sometimes I think my families think i'm crazy when I say stop smiling at me and just focus on your little one or on each other. I think we are easily programmed that we are most pleased looking at ourselves when we are smiling at a camera. But capturing memories is about a lot more than that. It's about capturing the little personality growing in your child or capturing those sweet moments that will bring you back to joy when you see them. So heres to sessions with real smiles and letting photography sessions be something littles can enjoy.
