“As my little boy grows older, I am beginning to see just how quickly time passes. Everyday he is saying or doing something new, and I find myself bursting with pride, yet panicking about how quickly he is growing. Time is so precious and fleeting, and family photos are a way to quietly remind me of just how special this point in our lives is. Being a photographer myself, I’m quite picky about family photos and with whom we choose to invest our time and money. When I stumbled across Hannah’s work online, I knew she would be a perfect fit for us. Hannah was so incredibly patient and kind- essential qualities when working with any toddler. She effortlessly captured our family in a way that I will forever be grateful for. I already get teary eyed looking back at these photos, and they were taken only a few weeks ago!
Becoming a mother has been the hardest, yet most fulfilling thing I’ve ever done. My little boy, Bear, is my pride and joy. He has tested me in every way possible, but I truly cannot imagine life without him. He has changed who I am as a person, and in some ways, I feel like my life didn’t even begin until he arrived. He is my world, and these photos perfectly illustrate the love of our family.” Emily, Mother
“I met Emily, the mother, for the first time at our shoot together and we were instantly friends. Both being photographers, we instantly connected and honestly oo’d and aah’d at the light the entire time. Between the torrential down-poors and crazy temperatures we had experienced just days before in Texas, we couldn’t believe we had snuck in a session during the absolute perfect weather, and the sun was shining the most beautiful golden light we had seen in a long time. These three are such a precious family and I can’t stop showcasing them! Sweet Bear loved dinosaurs and was completely comfortable in front of the camera (while holding said dinosaurs). He had such a sense of curiosity and we quickly turned the shoot into a dinosaur/creature chasing adventure – and it was the best.
Working with fellow photographers to capture their family is never a small feat and always comes with its set of nerves that I feel right before the shoot. I hadn’t met Emily or her family until we both pulled up to the shoot and I immediately felt like we were friends. As a mother Emily was incredibly patient, kind, and soft spoken with her adventurous and energetic little boy, Bear. Her husband Matt also had a similar demeanor, and was very playful with Bear, capturing his attention by pretending to be a dinosaur and helping Bear pick out the “pterodactyls” flying in the air. They were such a sweet family and it was so much fun capturing them in their own little world!
Motherhood is so sacred, serene, and special. I love photographing motherhood because often times in between the moments of chaos and the crazy pace of everyday life, time stands still for just a moment and I’m able to capture the sweet love of a mother with her son, daughter, or family. There’s truly nothing like it.” Hannah, Photographer
