Fall Mini Sessions 2019 | Hanna Hill Photography | Raleigh Family Photographer | Durham Family Photography | Chapel Hill Family Photography

What a crazy 2019 it’s been so far. Chris and I found out we are expecting our first baby right at the beginning of the year which really shook everything up for us! But we are so excited for our little to join the adventure sometime this Fall! This is why we will only be having ONE Mini session day this year. The big day is September 21! And there will only be a few slots available so if you are considering a session in NC this year, now is the time to grab your slot!

Each year I love getting a chance to reconnect with past families and meet new parents too! These 30 minute Mini sessions are such a sweet and simple way to get frame worthy pictures that celebrate the year you’ve had! I’m keeping things very laidback this year, relaxed locations and only 5 spots for the entire day.

Each Session will be 30 minutes at a location mentioned below!

They will include 6 fully edited images

with downloading and print release.

This year is just like last year, you will receive a full viewing gallery

and be able to select your favorite 6 or purchase additional files if you would like!

Mini Sessions this year are

$200

with full payment needed at contract signing to reserve your session.

All payments can be made through PayPal. 

Once you're paid up and contract signed

you'll be officially on the schedule!

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. 

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!

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 than the cold ground.

Also leave the snacks in the car or in small amounts.

But definitely bring along books or small toys if your little one may need a little distracting and you’re ok with them being in some of the images. 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 wiggly animals. 

How many images will I receive?

Included with each session is 6 Hand-edited, high-resolution images with a personal print release. You will receive access to an online viewing gallery of edited files(25-40) for you to select your favorite 6 for download. 

You will also be able to purchase additional photos individually, in sets 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. Both spots this year have very minimal walking, Brumley Nature Preserve has a beautiful trail that will give us a few location stops while the special location within Forest Hills is an secluded yet open field that keeps things very simple!

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... 

All sessions will be moved to the following day (SUNDAY)

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 Fall Mini Sessions! 

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

Yes,

since we are limited on time, only the nuclear family is welcome to your session slot (ie. parents and children) If you would like to include grandparents or share you session with other members of your 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!

Alicia F. Maternity Story

Alicia, Chris and Ori celebrate baby number two and Mom’s beautiful growing Belly

in Durham, North Carolina

Hanna Hill Photography | Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill Birth and Family Photographer

This past year I got to truly follow along with this beautiful family from Maternity, birth to Newborn! They were team green on baby number two and I just love capturing all the joy and anticipation that comes along with waiting. Big sister Ori is one of the best and biggest little personalities I’ve come across, she made this session such a blast. Even when things started off a little emotional it did not take long for her excitement and silliness to win out as she got comfortable in front of the camera. Her curiosity and love for her little baby sibling were beautiful to see. It was fun to just take these three out to a favorite little park and really celebrate that this precious family of three was growing by one. Chris and Alicia took so many beautiful moments to just connect and reflect as they awaited their little one and of course laugh at their precocious little girl. We celebrated that growing baby bump too which I am obsessed with. Our bodies grow and change in such a unique way during pregnancy and I wish every mom wanted to flaunt that courageous motherhood bump. I can’t wait to continue to unfold their sweet family story and share the powerful story of birth that brought their second little one into the world! (So stay tuned…)

The Newborn Story of Jack O.

Celebrating the Homecoming of this precious little brother in Raleigh, North Carolina

Newborn sessions are by far my realest and most laidback session I offer (outside fo documentary birth of course:P). By nature they are all about capturing those little details and moments and each newborn story is so unique to the personalities of each family. I go into each with the same idea of pairings, groups and details but I swear no session ever turns out quite the same.

For this stunning family I was there to celebrate the homecoming of sweet baby Jack. Who was surrounded by the love and adoration of not only mom and dad but two big personalitied sisters. Seeing the laughter and joy in their home was truly beautiful. I love how with home sessions you really have to learn to adapt, rarely does every person want to participate at the same time (especially juggling older siblings too) so you just learn how to dance to the rhythm of their unique family. In the moments that these sweet sisters wanted to love on baby brother we captured it and when they were ready to do their own thing we were able to take those moments to cherish some intimate moments with just mom, dad and baby. Each frame was filled with the authentic silliness of their family of 5 and the sweet sacred details of bringing a new life into their home. Baby Jack literally just went for the ride which I foresee being his laidback personality to come. He just loved to be close to them all and adapted to the attention and snuggles.

Thank you so much to this family for letting me celebrate your family in this way and for welcoming me into your home to capture these memories for you. It is always an honor for me!
