Our Story

I'm Hannah. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Josiah, and we have three happy, crazy, messy kiddos (4, 2, 4  months).

I took my first photography class my sophomore year of high school but it didn't really capture (pun intended) my attention until college.  I studied photography at Asbury University for several years before starting my own business.  I remember when things started taking off, after my brother and sister-in-law's wedding.  I began meeting so many wonderful couples + families in those first years of business.  But, within 3 and a half years of marriage we had welcomed two beautiful babies in to our family and time was at a premium.  I decided to close down my photography business in order to dedicate more time to those sweet faces (who appear on the blog from time to time).  Now, with my husband's work schedule more flexible I'm back again!

I try to make sessions light hearted, fun and easy.  Even though staged images are important, candid pictures are by far my favorites.  The tiny moments between poses.  Parents squatting to adjust a kiddo's outfit.  A whisper between spouses.  A casual laugh.  The moments people don't know I've captured.  Those tell the story.

I'm a TV show junkie and will more than likely quote "Friends" multiple times during the session. I have a black thumb when it comes to indoor plants but that doesn't stop me from trying!  I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal.  Chocolate lover and cold coffee drinker.

I'd love the chance to capture sweet moments for you and your family!
