It's hard to put into words how grateful we are for everything you've done and how much we would recommend you to others.
When we first met to discuss birth photography I was a bit unsure about the idea and Ian was absolutely unconvinced! We're both very private people and it felt odd to invite a stranger into the most important and sensitive moment of our lives. But within minutes of talking to you we were both convinced! Your passion for birth, photography and all things associated was evident and heartfelt and we knew you would be the right person to capture our baby's entry into the world.
Over the next few weeks you became more of a friend than a photographer! Getting to know you over a few walks around the park or the odd coffee meant that, on the day, it felt like a friend walking in to the delivery room when you arrived.
I think you were also the only other person who understood how hard being overdue was! We all waited anxiously for something to happen and you kept in touch regularly but not overwhelmingly!
And finally, at 3am when my waters broke, I was excited to let you know! You were at the hospital in record time and didn't miss a beat when you realised our little bundle had beaten you to it! The photos of the first few minutes of his life are simply perfect.
But you didn't stop there! You were seemingly invisible yet supportive all at once. I barely noticed you were there until you held my hand during difficult post-labour procedures and reassured me.
I can't thank you enough.

Birth of Albert
Birth of Logan
There are lots of big decisions to make when you are planning for your first baby and one of the best decisions I made was hiring Hannah as my birth photographer.
Caught in the moment it is hard to appreciate all of the once in a lifetime things that happen while preparing to, and then finally giving birth; all wonderful memories that fade with time but are forever preserved in the amazingly emotional pictures Hannah captured.
Her professionalism and undeniable talent for seeing beyond the moment is unparalleled. She captured moments I forgot happened and ones that I didn’t know happened at all. She was able to show every priceless detail of one of the most incredible moments of my life. She no doubt has an eye for the perfect photo, but she also has such a clear passion and a love for what she does that comes through in every photo she takes.
Not only that, but she was by my side during so many moments in which I needed someone, without being pushy or forceful in any way, I honestly do not think I could’ve gotten through the birth of my beautiful son without her by my side.
We are both forever endlessly grateful.
I have had 2 wonderful shoots with Hannah, one with my partner while pregnant and the other just of myself while heavily pregnant. Both shoots were incredible and I am overwhelmed with the outcome, the photos are something I will always treasure and I can’t wait to get more shoots booked in the near future.
Hannah is a wonderful, talented photographer who makes you feel so at ease and confident. I’m excited to see what Hannah and I can create next time around.
Hannah, you are one of the most beautiful and wonderful people I have ever ever met. Your presence and overall creative spirit make you so easy but also very exciting to be around, you also make me feel very calm and at ease, like no idea or position is a silly one.
Having you photograph me makes me feel relaxed and empowered.

We chose Hannah to capture some special family moments with our newborn daughter at 5 days old and could not be happier that we did so.
The photos are outstanding, wonderful natural snapshots of beautiful family moments which we will cherish forever.
Hannah was extremely friendly throughout as well as being professional and we received the completed gallery of the shoot speedily afterwards.
We adore the photos and highly recommend Hannah to anyone looking for a special way to capture family moments.
Thank you again for doing the shoot, the photos are so beautiful and we love them so so much.
I never would of thought I'd of had a birth photographer and it was only after meeting Hannah that I wanted one as I felt so comfortable with her.
I'm soooo happy that I did as the images are truly magical. It's so powerful to see yourself go through birth and realise how strong you are.
Having the photos also helped me recall how supportive my husband was which with previous births due to being in the zone I really didn't think he was!
Hannah supported me as much as I wanted leading up to the birth and was there in plenty of time despite a quick labour. We were in a small room but it didn't feel intrusive and soon after our baby was born we were left to take in our baby on our own.
If you're thinking about it just go for it I'm so happy I did despite being worried.

Hannah and I met through our love for birth. At our first meet up, we chatted for ages, she is so interesting and passionate.
I booked her to take maternity photos of my recent pregnancy, and although I was extremely nervous, she really put me at ease and made the whole experience really fun.
It was a no brainer to have her come the day after baby was born to take some newborn photos.
Her style is so natural and she's great at documenting real life moments. We didn't feel posed or too awkward, we just went about our normal day and she snapped away. The photos she took are so beautiful and I'm so glad we have them.
Our older children were present at both shoots and she is fantastic at dealing with the kids, they really warmed to her and she captured some lovely moments on both occasions. Hannah B I am very glad to have met you
I chose Hannah after originally choosing another photographer but after seeing Hannah’s style of photography it was exactly what I wanted.
She is so warm and friendly and I felt comfortable straight away. We kept in regular contact throughout my pregnancy by text rather than phone calls as I preferred that.
I went into labour 6 days over and it was pretty quick! Hannah made it just 10 minutes after Annie was born (my fault I might add, I didn’t realise how far along I was and held off telling her to leave!) but the pictures I got are amazing, beautiful and really captured the moment.
I'm so so pleased with them.
