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.

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.

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 Richter Family

Cheers to my awesome aunt, uncle and cousins for being rocks in my life ever since I was a wee little one. Luke has been one of my best friends since I was born and life without the Drew and Jacko would not be the same. Annabelle my auntie is more personality than most can handle and I'm thankful for her example and wisdom every holiday. It was really special getting to photograph them this passed thanksgiving and with all the changes that have happened since their last one who knows what the next will look like!

My Family

My mom likes to describe their home as "love chaos" because seriously it can be the craziest place for people who aren't used to it, especially when we invite 20 people to stay for the Holidays. We are a family of loud talking, story exaggerating, wine drinking and football watching dorks who like to fight and make up over board games for hours on end. Weirdly my husband fits right in for a person without Hill/Richter genetics. I jumped at the chance to make them all go out to the front yard to take a few quick shots but I have to say wrangling my own family is most similar to trying to photograph quintuplet toddlers!
