A B O U T

 

My name is Hannah, which means "grace". I can attest that my life, although messy, is a remarkable picture of it. I firmly believe in loving others deeply and gratefully cling to Jesus and the Gospel. I believe in extending grace and love in the same way it has been extended to me.

I prefer listening and watching the most. Honest talks about the Gospel and hearty laughs over hot chocolate are good for my heart. I long for opportunities to spend time with others and know them on a deeper, more heartfelt level; I am grateful because taking pictures allows me to do just that.

I photograph because I love. I love because He loved me. I am humbled and count it a joy that I so often am given the privilege to enter the lives of so many, creating things that hold meaning and capturing things that are worth remembering.

"TO ME, PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN ART OF OBSERVATION. IT'S ABOUT FINDING SOMETHING INTERESTING IN AN ORDINARY PLACE... I'VE FOUND IT HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH THE THINGS YOU SEE AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE WAY YOU SEE THEM." - ELLIOTT ERWITT


As an artist, my desire is that my work would be honest and sincere. I strive to create beautiful and organic art; something that you would want on your walls. I work best when I am acknowledged not as the photographer, but as your friend. I cannot fake emotion or that hearty laugh or the way two individuals can love each other so tenderly. But, what I can do is capture it. I am not one who will tell you what to do 100% of the time or who will make you seem like something you’re not. Instead, I much prefer to stop, look, observe, watch; to be as non-intrusive as possible. I will shoot as if we are old chums and I promise we will be by the end of our time spent together. I am in it for the beautifully honest and sweet times…I am in it to help you remember them. 

Over the years, I've grown to love the art that I'm pursuing and the people who take part in that pursuit with me. I count it such a joy to have the privilege to create something that holds meaning, something significant, and something that future generations will get to look at. My journey as an artist and learning my craft will never end, and I have been humbled beyond words by each person who has joined me in this adventure...for each person who has given me a chance and who have become dear friends in the process. I am grateful for the ones who are willing to trust me enough to let me enter into their lives with the privilege of being the one to capture the hearty laughs and good, swell times. It would be such a joy and an honor for you to allow me to do the same.
