The Carter Family

The Carter Family: Summer in the Backyard | Hanna Hill Photography | Kansas City, MO

Sometimes you meet a person and they just stick in your mind. I met Shannon (momma of this crazy bunch) while shooting a birth earlier this year. She is an incredible doula, mom and personality. She had mentioned her family of 5 extroverted little ones and her awesome husband who she just couldn't be more thankful for.

I had always wanted to capture the beautiful chaos that comes from a big family. I am one of 6 so the joy and stress and chaos was a very familiar concept. I wanted to document those moments of joy and collision that siblings bring. And I wanted to capture the sweet moments of Summer, being home with everyone having to get your energy out by jumping on a trampoline or running in the yard. It takes me back and I just adore the energy and celebration of life that the Carter family has. they are free of expectations or intense limits. The kids are creative and loud and chaotic together. They were are similar to buzzing electrons around their parents feeding off the energy, attention and love they give off. I just love being able to capture the real emotions, moments and fierceness of everyday life. This is just a small glimpse into what a day is like for the Carter family, its authentic and celebratory. 

Capturing these Summer memories is priceless. This is one of those beautiful seasons of life you will always remember and having photos of the joy and family chaos are irreplaceable.

Kristin & Travis : Lee's Summit, MO Engagement

Sometimes you get out shooting with a couple unsure of how it will turn out but the rush of relaxation comes over you as soon as you realize how chill and funny the couple is. Kristin and Travis are so much fun to interact with, they have been together for such a good chunk of time you can just feel the best friendship they share. We discovered some crazy beautiful spots on our lakeside adventure and the cloudy day just added to the richness of color. So excited for these two as they continue on their sweet journey as a couple.

The London-Evans Family : Loose Park, Kansas City Family Session

A couple Saturdays back I got the chance to photograph this sweet extended family. Spring was warm and the kids were full of life and energy. I love being able to capture that cousin bond and the relationships they have with their grandmother. These are the kinds of relationships you don't think to capture but are truly a beautiful part of a childhood. 

Atleast for me growing up, the time with my cousins was heaven on earth. We felt invincible together and never wanted that time to end. Its like living with 5 siblings which is enough to put on a play or make a movie together. I hope one day this set of cousins loves that closeness as much as I did and can look back on these sweet photos with joy.

The Mizner Family

The beautiful Mizner family braved the windy Saturday we had last week for a fun session at Liberty Memorial. We got the beautiful skyline of Kansas City in the horizon which made the wind swept hair look all the more worth it.

I love being able to enter into families with every session and get a small glimpse of just the how their family dynamics work. It was a blast getting to engage with the silliness and joy of this family and it was not hard to see who is at the center of it. Little Harper stole the show and kept everyone in a great mood even when she was not so sure about me, "the lady with the camera."

Claire & Brandon : Baby-moon Session

Sometimes you meet clients that you just hit it off with. Those are really the best sessions because all of us feel comfortable and fun and truly "out of comfortability comes creativity." I should coin that phrase because it's been a mantra all throughout my creative life. I love feeling laid-back and relaxed when I'm shooting, it's not because I'm not taking it seriously but because I get to actually be the artist you hired rather than a pressurized contractor. But i digress :)

This session with Claire and Brandon was definitely the most ideal from the comfyin home setting to all of us just having enough in common to never let the conversation lull. They are new to the Kansas City area just like me so I feel like we hit it off even more. I even thought, they should meet my husband, we would have so much fun grabbing drinks sometime. But mostly I just couldn't get over the sweet excitement they had about having their first little one. They were laughing and teasing about what to name her and Claire's supposed pregnancy brain. It kind of made me realize that in home maternity sessions are seriously the best of both worlds.

Don't get me wrong I do love the little kids with their energy and personality but sometimes trying to tame a rambunctious child is draining. But having a little one to at least talk about and focus on was just the perfect way to bring out all the feels from excitement to nerves to that sweet look you share with your partner that says, "dude we made a human being". I've decided to start calling these sweet sessions, Baby-moon Sessions because seriously thats what they are all about.
