Hi, I'm Hannah.


And I'm so glad you're here.

I'm a Portland, Ore. based photographer and storyteller.

When I was a little girl, my favorite pastime was digging through my mother's boxes and boxes of film photos and putting aside the ones that made me feel something. The photos that consistently caught my eye were those that captured a moment so vividly that I could close my eyes and be there.

When I'm behind the lens, this is what I aim to do.

There is beauty everywhere we look.
Photography is the art of seeing it. 

I used to be afraid of photographing people, probably because I was afraid of them. However, the older I get and the more I connect with the people around me, the more compelled I am to photograph them.

Every person is a story. Everyone is a living embodiment of the human experience and I believe that in photographing them, we can capture the essence of what it means to be alive in the world.

Let's get together and make some magic.
