Pictures of Success

First of all I just want to take a moment to write some belated praise of my lovely illustrator Lisa Manuels who designed the banner at the top of the page. It's so gorgeous, as is the rest of her stuff. Please go take a look! She has some awesome stuff for sale too. Right, you go look and we'll meet back here in say, 15 minutes ok? OK! GO!





Done? Perused? Added to favourites? I hope so as Lisa was really lovely when we were talking about the designs and deserves to be better known.

Onward with the post! So I thought that I would post some of the lovely feedback that I've had from working with people over the last few months. There are some days where I work from the moment I drop my son at school to the moment I pick him up and then from the moment he goes to bed to the moment I can't keep my eyes open any longer (hello 2am!) There are times when I have been working without a break, forgetting to eat, cabin feverish and frustrated that I begin to beat myself up for no reason "Why did I crop that like that?" "What was I thinking?" "I'm a sham!" etc etc etc etc. My housemate has found me in tears over the colour temperature of a photo. I kid you not.

Now this is not some grand confession that I am in any way incompetent, as the fact remains that I have never had bad feedback from my clients. I look back over the work that gave me a nervous breakdown and wonder what on Earth I was so worried about. The fact of the matter is that the tears and the anxiety come from the fact that I care about my work very much. I love it. I drive myself half crazy with it and then once a project is finished and well received I think "Oh, photography, I can't stay mad at you!"

So it is that I have to learn to give myself some praise once in a while, to enjoy where I am now rather than get cross with myself for not having a ten-year career behind me already. Anyway, enough of this ramble, here are some kind words from various clients!








And finally some praise from the girls at Stolen Thunder who I had an absolute blast with when we did our shoot with Kayla Hadlington. I still get excited when I see my pictures on their website!
"Hannah is an invaluable member of our creative team, she has a keen eye and an inspiring energy which makes any shoot a breeze."


  1. Hannah your stuff is amazing! I wish we lived closer, I desperately want you to photograph my kids. If we plan a holiday over that side of the water I shall arrange something with you.
    You're going to go very far lady! :)
