Samantha came into the studio for her intimate portrait session shortly after having her third baby. She was nervous, but confident it would grow her self-love. She used these images as a catalyst to celebrate her body & feel GOOD about herself. You can read her full review below, but I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves:
When we asked Samantha what she thought about her session, this is what she had to say:
What made you choose us for your session? 🙂
Your work, as well as the countless women who rave about their session
What were you the most nervous about coming into your session?
How I’d look in the photos.
How do you feel now that you’ve competed the session?
EMPOWERED! So happy I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I love myself more than ever for so many reasons currently, and know that will translate to my relationships with my husband and daughters.
What was your favorite part of the session?
Hannah cheering me on and showing my her camera after posing.
What, if anything, could have been improved about your session?
Do you have any advice for people looking to book their own session?
DO IT FOR YOURSELF! The products may be a gift for your significant other, but the experience is for YOU.
Would you recommend us to a friend?

I had to do the very least and come on here and brag on Hannah. Not for her, but for YOU. Hoping anyone who has not booked a session does so STAT. I booked with Hannah when I was 7 months pregnant with my 3rd baby. My friends all contributed it to those pesky horney pregnancy hormones, but in a place of knowing I’d be bringing my 3rd beautiful little woman into this world and knowing I was strong AF because of it. After my 3rd c-section I was honestly immediately thinking about how at 3 months post partum I was was going to be basically naked shooting a session with someone I’d never met. I struggled with my body image and relationships with food my entire life, and this (in mine, and only my mind) added to the pressure. I wanted to show my best. Instead of the normal diet culture that often wrecked my life, I focused on being a strong woman. A woman who breastfed my oldest 2 little ladies until almost a year and a half. So instead of putting pressure on myself to “bounce back”, I put pressure on myself to be the best fucking woman and mom I could be for my 3 girls. From the second I walked into Hannah’s I felt at ease. She asked me about my self love journey and I described the above. Her and Annie shook their head as I talked in that “ YAAAS QUEEN” notion. We tried on outfits that made me feel myself and yet alive and HOT. Along the way Hannah showed me each pose and I couldn’t help but simply say “oh my god” or squeal with delight because I never saw myself so beautiful and STRONG. Fast forward a week later to my reveal, and my jaw was on the ground with my hand over my mouth the entire time in disbelief. I can’t say enough amazing things about Hannah. She brought out that inner beauty we each have, while showcasing the outer beauty. My album and acrylic print may be for my husband on our 6th anniversary, but that experience and endlessly played slideshow are for ME.
