Autumn Mini Sessions 2018 |

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!

Candid Family Session at the Park |

Raleigh Birth and Family

Photography

I had the joy of photographing this sweet family this past Fall. I'm so behind in blogging that their little girl, Marlie, has already arrived and is the cutest thing! But still I wanted to celebrate this sweet season of their family better late than never. 

One of my favorite parts of this session was the Trimble Family's joy and laidback energy. They knew they had a little "almost" toddler who wanted to explore and experience his new surroundings way more than cuddle on a blanket.  And they just went with it. We chased little Jackson all around the Park and captured some of the most infectious giggles I have ever seen. One of my favorite moments was when Karla was snuggling him and his sweet dad was behind the camera dancing and making silly faces. Which made Jackson seriously chuckle out loud with so much laughter I couldn't help but laugh myself.

These are the beautiful moments of family and childhood that I love to capture! It's not just about sitting still or doing things according to a pose list, it's about really bringing out the love and connection each family has with each other! You could definitely see the happiness that this family of three brought each other. I know for certain their home is filled with silly candidness and genuine love even now as they've welcomed their new little girl into the mix.

The Hill Family

 Raleigh Birth & Family Photography | Hanna Hill Photography

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!

Fall Mini Sessions in Kansas City

Fall Mini Sessions | Hanna Hill Photography

In Kansas City!

Hey everyone, I'm super pumped to finally announce this years Fall Mini Sessions! This is one of my favorite times of year, getting to catch up with past clients and capture new families all in the most beautiful time of the year. If you are looking to do an updated family photo, have gorgeous shots for your Holiday cards or just want to capture some memories of this beautiful season in your family's life, these sessions are for you.

Like always these are intended to be laid back, fun and organic. So don't feel stressed about coordinating your outfits or looking perfect. Definitely bring a blanket to snuggle up on and comfy shoes. While we will grab some sweet family shots of everyone smiling most of the moments captured will be real and relaxed. We will capture pairings, solo shots of each kiddo, a moment of mom and dad and just some fun shots that tell the story of your session. 

Since I'll only be in KC for a short while these sessions are very limited so please get your requests in as soon as possible! The dates posted will be my only days available to capture families in the KC area.

Big News & Summer Schedule | Hannahill Photography

Hannahill Photography has crazy, sad and wonderful news. Chris and I are moving back to the South East. We will be moving ourselves over to Durham, North Carolina at the end of the summer, so Chris can start his Masters degree at Duke University. This is crazy and wonderful and so sad to leave my amazing clients, families, couples and community here in Kansas City. A lot is unknown about Hannahill Photography during this transition but I'll be photographing as much as humanly possible.

Kansas City has been such a wonderful place for our first years of marriage and we will miss our people here so dearly.  For those of you with Weddings in the Fall on my calendar don't worry for a second, flights are already booked for me to come back in the Fall and with that will be days open for Fall family sessions as well. These days will be limited but available to all my awesome previous clients and those who have been waiting for the Fall to arrive to snag a Hannahill Photography session. 

While it really saddens me to leave KC we are actually super excited about North Carolina and all the possibilities there. If you know anyone over that way feel free to send them my email cause I'll be on the hunt for people to grab a cup of coffee with.

Frequently asked Questions:

 

What is the difference between Mini Sessions & Morning/Evening Sessions? 

There are a few key differences between these two sessions.

Morning/Evening Sessions are:

  • Our full 1 hour sessions
  • These can be newborn, in home, outdoor, documentary style or just in a location you love and want a session at. 
  • These are for immediate family only but if you'd like the include the extended family there is only a $25 charge per pair added. 
  • They include 50+ fully edited images sent to you in an online gallery for you to download, share and make prints with
  • Standard Family Sessions are $250 but feel free to message me HERE to get a copy of our Investment guide with all of the different types of sessions, whats included and their cost. 

Mini Sessions are: 

  • 30 minutes long from "hello" to "all finished" and you need to be at least 5 minutes early to insure you get all of your allotted time because these sessions are booked back to back.
  • They are held at a predetermined location depending on the time and day you choose. 
  • They include 20 fully edited images sent to you in an online gallery for you to download, share and make prints with. 
  • They cost $150 and the full payment is due to reserve your slot.

What happens if the weather doesn't cooperate?

Overcast, even drizzly weather can make for good photographs...Umbrellas are fun! I understand that it’s not feasible for all situations.  If the weather is looking “questionable,” I will check in with you and we will determine if our session will take place or should be rescheduled.  Due to a very limited booking schedule, I do my absolute best to hold sessions on your reserved day and time.  If we have to cancel due to POURING rain, most likely your session will be moved to the following day, SUNDAY same place and time. 

Do you use "Props" or "Pinterest" shot lists?

My style is not like everyone else’s, my hope is always to give you real life photos. Our sessions are very organic and laid back. If you like my photographs, what you're seeing is a reflection of this...I don't want the end result to feel contrived. I really strive to connect with each family, and photograph in a way that feels right with each family. 

But one prop I always suggest is bringing a blanket! I will in every session ask you guys to sit, either on the grass or ground so it's always helpful to have a blanket for everyone to cuddle and land on. 

When will my images be ready?

All sessions take 1-3 weeks to process after the date of your session.
