Hey there, I'm Hannah.
I’m a family, maternity & newborn photographer based here in Sydney's Sutherland Shire. Photographing beautiful light & wonderful, big hearted people is my absolute passion.
What are your interests outside of photography?
My family life is my greatest hobby! haha! Sounds cheesy but I am really passionate about home-life balance, being there for my family, cooking (a lot), gardening and even DIY house projects!! So that takes up a lot of my time outside of running my business. Beyond that - I love to run every day in the great outdoors (even in rain!), I love city beers with friends, and gaming like a nerd with my bestie/partner!
Have you ever worked in another field?
YES! I have a decade of professional experience working with children and families - from teaching overseas, to being an Au Pair, and even as a child care centre director!
I also trained many moons ago as a professional florist, and worked with many engaged couples, as a wedding floral designer. I was lucky enough to have previously worked at stunning locations such as the Q Station, Hunter Valley Wineries & Berry Courthouse.
Do you like dogs? We want to bring ours to our shoot!
OMG yes. Bring your dog/s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am the biggest dog person. So if we are planning your family shoot, make sure you mention your dog/s.
What's your favourite part about photographing maternity, newborn or family shoots?
Connection. Hands down - it's connecting with each of my clients, getting to know them and then reflecting genuine emotion and real moments through their images. I am a lifestyle photographer, which means I shoot with natural light - either outdoors or in your home. And I love this because it means we often get to work with the most glorious natural, golden light!!!!
Why choose me as your photographer?
As an expectant couple, new parent or family on the hunt for a photographer - you will quickly find out that you have MANY options - all you have to do is do a quick google to find that there are heaps and heaps of photographers everywhere.
Choosing a photographer to trust in and capture your family's legacy is no small decision! But here you are, having found me, out of all the photographers and I am so excited that you have. Why am I so excited? Well, photography and specifically my chosen field of lifestyle maternity, newborn and family photography - is my soul's passion. I have a decade of experience working professionally with children and families - from newborn to teenagers - so you are in the safest of hands and I know how to work some magic let me tell you!
I LOVE creating incredible, emotive imagery from REAL moments for my clients and not just that, I love the heartfelt connections I make with each of them (I stay in contact with my past clients and 99% of the time they become really good friends!). When I was first starting my business, I made the decision to be the very best photographer I could be in my chosen speciality! And not just that - I vowed that at the very core of everything I did, I would always prioritise treating each and everyone of my clients with the greatest of care.
Going the extra mile for you means so many things but in short:
- making my pricing and the booking process super transparent and easy (no hidden fees and being quick to communicate etc)
- taking the time to really get to know you so I can infuse your photographs with genuine connection and emotion (I always like to call clients before they book in so they get that personal attention)
- preparing you to get the most out of your session well before our date together
- creating a super positive, fun and personalised photography shoot for you on the day utilising my wealth of experience working with children and families
- getting a sneak peak to you asap so you can share it with your friends and family
- then making sure you receive your finished gallery within 1-2 weeks!! no dramas!!
This has resulted in 80+ raving reviews, being nominated as a finalist in the 2020 local business awards and most importantly my little business has a legacy of countless happy clients and many, many lifelong friends made a long the way!
