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…)

Mothers Day Special

Motherhood Sessions Special : In Celebration of Mothers Day

Growing up my mom was always the creative type, an artist and nurturer at heart. She always had a paint brush in hand, craft project in process or camera up ready to capture our life. 

She valued documenting our everyday moments before it was even in style. We even have these videos from back in the 90s of when we were all little ones. She would wake us each up with the video camera and capture everything we did in those 24 hours, from potty training to preschool to putting us to bed at night. Her love for just making a record of our family history has been something that has stuck with me my entire life. 

I remember though that while she captured life as art in a beautiful way, she struggled herself to get in front of the camera. She always wanted to be the person taking the photos of our family road trips, spaghetti covered faces and even the one to volunteer to snap the group photo at Disney world. She avoided being in the frame as much as possible.

 She is in no way a rare case and I can admit I’ve gotten that gene too. Once I started to become a photographer it made it that much harder for me to force myself in front of it. It’s weird how walls come up and how safe it feels to be in control of capturing the moment rather than being present in it. I think as women we all have a bit of anxiety when it comes to being seen and photographed. 

Especially as moms, the moments that you are spending with your littles and being present just don’t usually feel like your most glamorous. We can all agree parenthood isn’t perfect, and that mistakes and messes are made. But these seasons of childhood, raising your kiddos and documenting those in between moments have such an importance. Remembering the way you routinely woke your little ones up each morning, the way you took your kiddos to school with coffee in one hand and your youngest sleeping in the carseat, the sweet giggles that fill the house at bath time or the way your kiddos love to play outside until dark.

So for this Mother's Day instead of offering mini sessions or mommy and me sessions I thought I'd offer simply a few new types of Motherhood sessions with a limited time discount in honor of Mother's Day.

Titus L: Birth Story Revisited

Titus L. : Birth Story Revisited | 1 Year later

One year ago today this little one was brought into the world. Photographing births has always been a deep passion of mine; one that truly felt reignited by this little guy's birth. I remember walking out the hospital the morning he was born and literally jumping because I had finally been reunited with my passion. Watching Ellen fiercely work through her contractions, make hard choices, fight through the exhaustion while still maintaining this pure sense of peace and joy that she would soon meet her son was just the amount of empowerment I needed to see. Whatever fear she felt she continuously fought against it. I remember the room being filled with their birth playlist which was this incredible mixture of soft hymns and the most joyful gospel music you can think of. I remember how after sleeping in the hospital room all night we woke up to this gorgeous morning light. I remember looking up to see Jaremy just holding Ellen's hand, laughing and praying with her knowing that their little boy would be there soon. That morning light made each photo and moment that much more hopeful and captivating. It streamed through the room just as Titus was brought earth side and I remember thinking "my god, this job is everything." 

You may be wondering, why is Hanna rewriting and sharing a blog post from one year ago when she is 15-30 blog posts behind. Well thats a great question. I realized that in one year my passion for birth photography has grown like a wildfire in my spirit. My style and desire to capture that authentic, raw emotion that is present in every sacred birthing space has only solidified. That spirit and style was just re-beginning when I wrote this story last year. I was just remembering a passion I held a little captive in my heart. Without even reason I found myself going back through this birth and finding new details and moments I had lost when I posted it before. I found myself reworking the color, light and composition and wanted to be able to share it again in celebration of both growth as a business and my passion for this work. This new blog for me is a reflection, reinvigoration of an already beautiful story just with a new perspective one year later. I obviously won't be able to reblog every birth each year as my style grows and changes but there really was something so special about this birth that made me feel pretty much just called to re share and retell it in a new way. 

If you want to take a look at last years orignal post you can do so through this link.

You'll see that I've added a lot more moments never before shared. It's crazy how much can change in 1 year. Cheers to little Titus today on his first birthday!

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.

The Hann Family

The Hann Family | Hanna Hill Photography

This Summer has been crazy for so many reasons and it's felt like maybe a week long at most.  We are presently in the middle of packing up all our things to move in two weeks and I'm doing my best staying on top of everything else in my life. Along with sessions and running my business full time I've added mentorship to my list. It's been an awesome summer of growing up other women in the art of photography. For some it was to help jump start their own small photography business and others just to teach them how to understand their camera more. 

A part of that mentorship was setting up a real session or two just to get behind the camera and show how I like to run my sessions and walk through how to adjust your camera while in a real session. This session was captured with my great friend Lyn of her long time friends the Hann family. It was laid back, fun and centered around capturing the sweet connections of Mom, Dad and their little boy. I loved getting to meet this fun family and just wanted to share some of the shots captured during our mentorship session. 

If you have any questions about photography mentorship I would love to talk, so feel free to email me  here or if you just want to get your family session in before the end of the Season I have a few more slots open and would love to meet your Family this Summer! Also stay tuned for Fall Mini Session dates because I will be back in both October and November to Check in with and photograph my awesome families.
