Paul O. : Lifestyle Newborn Session

Paul O. : Lifestyle Newborn Session | Hanna Hill Photography

I was there the moment this little guy came into the world. Immediately the room filled with joy and love because this little guy was finally here. A couple weeks after he made his arrival I got to chill with him again.  Those first couple weeks at home are hard and beautiful. I love being able to photograph this precious time in the parenting process. Yes it feels it may never end but it will and you will wonder where the time went! Cheers to this new family and this adroable little boy!

The Lewis Family

It was so much fun getting to run around with this little boy and his wonderful family. Sometimes sessions are chaotic but capturing life and the unique joy of every family is definitely what make photography the best job in the world!

The Hilt- Gabriel Family

There is so much life and love for this little boy. The Hilt-Gabriel family was so much fun to work with and we all made it our mission to make little Isaiah smile. He was definitely not having it during our session but that never stops a sweet family from getting sweet genuine fits of laughter and candid moments of love.

The Veach Family

The truth is little ones under three are the best and hardest part about being a family photographer. Simply because they are constantly surprising the world around them. It keeps me on my toes and makes my job that much more fun and challenging. Long gone are the days where I can hold a stuffed animal over my head and little ones are distracted into a genuine smile (wait i'm not sure that ever worked now that I think about it)

So for me my goal is always to make my sessions about adventure, letting little ones see and experience the things they want to. As an adult I think we can agree sometimes getting your photo taken just feels awkward and I know kids get that sense too. So letting kids just be themselves has always been my trick for getting genuine moments of joy on little ones faces. Its not because I said "say cheese" its because I let them grab a stick or let them cling to mom if they are feeling unsure. Its definitely always full of surprises and maybe I'm letting a two year old run my session but somehow it always pans out. 

It seriously was such a pleasure getting to go on an adventure with little Leo. He was excited to lead the way immediately and kept me and his sweet parents on our toes as he walked all over the beautiful Black Hoof Park. He was clever and kind and just loved smiling for the camera. I'm sure if I was 2 again he would have been my best friend!
