Birth, Love and Family Photography

My name is Hanna.

I believe real life is worth celebrating

I believe photography is about creating art out of our family history and telling stories about who we are

I believe birth photography is for everyone even those who aren't about to give birth, because it's empowering and healing to see and know the strength and beauty that went into every one of us being born.  

I believe art has the power to move people and being uncomfortable with art is an important part of experiencing it 

The think the best photos are when you forget about the camera being there and you are just laughing, crying and in the moment with one another

I believe that the home is where joy, comfortability and authentic connections start.

I love golden light and using easily accessible outdoor locations that feel like you are in the middle of no where on an adventure.

I am drawn to dynamic color and story telling black and whites and create images that express vitality, raw emotion and vulnerability.

I believe chaotic lives, snuggly littles and laid back people are what dream sessions are made of  

I love meeting new people, hearing new stories and checking my email, so I can't wait to hear from you!

What to expect when working with Hanna Hill Photography

I want every session to be laid-back and stress free. 

My focus will always be on bringing out who you are and celebrating the real reactions and connections that happen in front of me

 I aim to be creative, respectful and unobtrusive to your story unfolding.

I love composing interesting and real images through lighting and natural direction that draws out those organic connections. 

I want everyone who described themselves as awkward in front of a camera to experience what it's like to not have to "say cheese" ever again

With every session I try to deliver everything from the silly shots, the detail shots to the "I woke up like this" shots. Because I believe those in between moments are some of the best.

Words from former Hanna Hill photography Clients

She had a calming presence and was also able to keep the mood light and make me laugh when I needed it! When we got the photos, I was shocked at how intense and real the images were. I honestly don’t even remember her being as close as she was for some of those moments. I definitely didn’t feel uncomfortable being photographed, which to me, speaks volumes to how she maneuvers around the room.

The photos we received are more than just pictures they capture our emotions in that special moment.
— Claire V. | Maternity & Newborn
As I started to go through our photos my eyes filled up with tears, we worked so hard planning our day and it all happened so fast, I felt like we missed out on a lot that happened. Not only were the photos she captured just stunning, she re told the whole story of our day through each one.
— Sasha P. | Wedding
She made moments of extreme pain somehow look beautiful and I can look at the photos with joy now as I remember the moment our baby came into the world! Also she was so encouraging during the pushing process and was cheering me on the whole time! It was like having a friend there, not just an extra body.
