I'm Hannah. I'm a photographer and educator with a passion for equipping and encouraging others in this industry.

I've been photographing professionally since 2014, and my journey was one of trial and error, DIY and experimentation... and a little loneliness, too.

And while I'm a person who endlessly pushes myself to figure it all out whether I have help or not - I've realized that our journeys of learning, growth, and success as photographers shouldn't be that way at all.

Instead, I believe that there should be community, support, FUN, and friendship - plus access to darn good education that elevates the entire industry.

Hey there!

And that's what ignited this passion: a desire to see other photographers connected, supported, and accessing top-tier education that sets them up for real success.

I have been so honored to have my work featured on many national publications, including Wedding Chicks, Rocky Mountain Bride, The Fount Collective, 100 Layer Cakelet, The White Wren, The Motherhood Anthology, Whimsically Wed, La Vie Est Belle, La Peche Journal, and more. I have both been featured in and written educational articles for The Kindred Path and Lemonade and Lenses Magazine online and in print. I'm forever pursuing my personal best: for myself, for my clients, and for my students.

This industry shouldn't be lonely - and yet I've heard countless times over the years from fellow photographers that it can be so hard to connect and find a trusted friend.

It also shouldn't be secretive - and yet photographers often protect their knowledge as if contributing anything to the success of another will be their own demise.

Personally, though, I love to see others succeed. I love making real connections that make this industry feel a little smaller and more friendly. I love that my students aren't simply students, but friends who I get to watch grow and thrive in their own work.

I am unrelentingly committed to providing the industry's best education for family photographers, by equipping them with real skills to create a sustainable business and work that keeps them inspired, as well as empowering them to believe this space is big enough for all of us.

Truthfully, I believe in you, in your gifts, and in your unlimited potential for growth. I believe that every skill is learnable, and that we all benefit when our industry is connected, healthy, and successful. I believe that we all bring something wonderfully unique to the creative table.

From beginner to professional, I'd love the chance to contribute to your success.

My Approach

I have developed a unique, extremely relaxed and repeatable approach to photographing families. It's one that allows me to capture gorgeous storytelling imagery at every session - even the most challenging ones. I see a need in the family photo industry for education that equips photographers to create high-end work and businesses, so I am particularly passionate about educating family photographers.

Everything is learnable.

 I believe

Sure, it's intimidating sometimes. But it's all learnable. From contracts and invoices, to shooting film, to marketing and managing an email list, to building your own studio.... with the right education, you can do it.

A rising tide lifts all boats.

I love seeing my students succeed, simply because it's awesome to watch them thrive. But beyond that, all of us are ultimately served when our industry has high standards, when more people recognize the payoff of investing well into photography, and when we can earn a real living doing what we love.

You have what it takes.

I didn't start photography because I thought I was artsy - in fact, I was a software engineer. I later learned how much I love to create.
Maybe you consider yourself an artist - or maybe not. Maybe you take to the creativity naturally or maybe you're analytical. Maybe you're experienced or maybe you're brand new. Guess what? You belong here.
