I enjoy being with Hannah at births.
She makes a great addition to the birthing team. Her presence is supportive and non-intrusive. And her photos are amazing!!! She has a unique way of capturing the beauty and honesty of birth.

I have had the pleasure of working along side Hannah at quite a few home births now. She truly does an amazing job capturing "the story" as it unfolds. Her passion for birth shines through not just in "her" work, but somehow, she always ends up as a true support person as she cheers mom on, gets dad some water, or hands the midwives something they need. Integrating into the birth space is something that is important. Hannah does it. And through her eye and heart you will see your beauty and story unfold as you work to welcome this new life into your yours!

She is amazingly perceptive to the needs and comfort of her clients, and seamlessly inserts and removes herself from the birth space given the circumstances of what is going on at any given second. She performs her job in the manner of someone pursuing a passion. She is genuinely, wholeheartedly, and so completely enmeshed in her involvement as a photographer and support when it's go-time, and she does it with a smile that tells me she loves every second of it.

Hannah has been with us through the births of both of our children. She has been able to capture the beautiful images and emotions that i haven't been able to see. She has given us the memories of the moment I became a mother, the first time I saw my beautiful boys, my husband telling me that we had sons, and the look on my babies face as they entered this world. She is more to me than a photographer in the room, Hannah is a part of our birth story and I will be forever grateful for her.

What sets Hannah apart from other photographers is that she puts her heart into her work. She not only documents amazing moments like she did with the births of both of our boys, but she becomes a part of the experience. She is kind, helpful, and objective in very emotional and intimate moments. Coming from a husband and father, I feel very comfortable with her and know I don't need to think about anything else other than my wife and child. We will be using her again in the future!

As the dad and male birth partner, at first I was not sure what to expect, but our initial meetings with Hannah to secure her birth photography services confirmed that she would be great to work with. Her experience with the birthing process was an invaluable resource for us as first time parents. Her naturalistic style captured the entire experience perfectly, and allowed us to have memories captured when we may not have been completely 'in the moment' to savor them. That being said, her presence and wisdom facilitated us being more 'present' during the birth than we would have otherwise. I would very highly recommend Hannah's services, so that everybody has the joy of reliving that priceless moment of birth (and all that leads up to it) for posterity through her stunning videos and images.

Hannah is the perfect mix of professional and relatable.
She genuinely loves what she does, and it shows in every single image. She captured the atmosphere and energy with ease, and the photographs are breathtaking. The entire experience with Hannah was invaluable. We will certainly be having her on our team for future babies and are so grateful for all she has done and continues to do. We have so much love for her.

I knew Hannah was a match from the first emails we shared. Her kindness, sensitivity and professionalism left us without a doubt about having her take our birth photos. Not only are the pictures everything I could have hoped for, they capture feelings, not just images. Hannah truly has a gift! Her pictures have a way of illuminating the unseen while she was virtually invisible during the entire process, except for when she was lovingly holding my hand through contractions. What other photographer would be there for you not just to take your pictures, but also to provide friendship and emotional strength.

I was comforted by her emotions and expressions. Hannah was more of a doula than a photographer... There is no one else we would have wanted to tell our birth story. So happy we decided to have a photographer. Oh and we had a girl...lucky number three. If we go for number four, I hope we can have Hannah there again, for her....the photos are a bonus!!!
