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!

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.

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. 

If you are wanting;

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.

The Benink Family

There is nothing like ending all the mini sessions with an awesome family. The Beninks were so easy going and made my job that much simpler. Once kids get to a certain age they definitely think my silliness is no longer cool but they can at least laugh at me making a fool of myself.
