Best Friends

Everyone has a best friend. Either someone they've known their entire lives, or someone they've only known for a short period of time. In my case I've known this person my entire life. My sister. When we are together it is non-stop laughing and having fun.... We can sit there and cry laughing with each other and no one around us will no why were laughing except us. We always, at least for the most part get along all the time. :) We can do anything together and we will always have each other when were old and gray. :)

Since I'm a photographer, I have the pleasure of deciding exactly how I want my sisters senior portraits to look, without paying an arm and a leg to the school photographers. When I was thinking about how I wanted these images to look, I decided I wanted them different, more like a fashion shoot then a standard senior shoot. Something that really portrayed some of the things that she loves. So for one part of the shoot we took her to a friend of ours horse farm and I was able to get some gorgeous images!! She is so photogenic and beautiful to photograph that she makes my job easy!! Here are some of the images from our shoot last saturday. More to come soon!

Thats all for now. . . I'll post more of her other senior portraits a little later. Enjoy :)

Living life to the fullest.

One of the things that I strive to do as a follower of Christ, as a daughter to my parents, as a sister, as a friend, and as a photographer, is to live life to the fullest. Striving towards a stronger-better relationship with the Lord, my parents, friends and family. As well as growing as a business women and making my photography business better. In that process, its always helpful when you are working and striving towards something you love to do. Something you have a passion for and a desire to move forward in. So in saying all of that. . .

Recently I had the opportunity to drive to atlanta with my good friend Bridgit Mcbee (McBee Photography) and attend the WPPI U photography convention. While I was there they really tried to impress on their audience that video was a wonderful way to show clients really who you are as a photographer. So as soon as I got home I went to work. . .

I met Justin Robinson through a good friend of mine at my church. He is currently going to NGU for Brodcast Media and Theater. I had seen many of his films and loved his work!! So I called him on my way home from atlanta and thats where the planning began. To get to know justin a little better and see what kind of work he does I thought i'd show you, so you arent just taking my word for it . . .

This is called "Job Description"- J-ROB Productions 

. . . and if your up to it, here is something that I found was really important to see after watching the short film "Job Description" . . . This is Justin Robinson himself . . .

Ok with all that being said, and seeing for yourself the talent. I hired Justin to make me a promo video for my photography business, and I can not say enough good things about him and his business. Also if your looking to hire a videographer for a wedding, event, short film, or anything else you need J-ROB Productions is who you need to hire!!! 

Take a look at the promo video he has made for HannahLane Photography and I'd love to hear back from you and tell me what you think!! :) This is a little of who I am, what I love to do, and how I work. This is my passion. 
Enjoy . . . :)

Precious Baby Innocence

I love children.

There is something about their sweet innocence that is amazing to me. There big curious eyes and wonder for the world around them. Well this week I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest well behaved "little man". He was so good for me and was awesome to photograph. His parents clearly adored him and I loved being able to watch them interact with him and watch this wonderful family love each other. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot. It was so hard to pick just a few because I loved so many of them.

Thank you so much for the privilege to photograph your handsome baby. :)

Timing was perfect

For this particular wedding that I photographed I already knew the bride and her family, and it was so wonderful for me to reunite with them all. The timing of this couple's meeting, engagement, and then wedding was completely the Lord's timing and they radiated the Lords love and blessing. I truly enjoyed being able to photograph their wedding for them and spend the weekend with them. Here are some of my favorites from the wedding that I thought i'd share with you.

Thank you Lori and Josh for letting me spend your special day with you!

Project Light.

Since I've only ever posted my photography projects here on my blog I decided to mix it up a bit and start posting some of my art projects that I tackle. This project I found online at one of my favorite sites. Pinterest. Its a lamp made out of doilies, wallpaper paste, and a balloon. I picked up a hanging lamp kit at walmart for five bucks and I bought the doilies at a local consignment store for eight bucks. Cheapest lamp i've ever bought!
and of course since my passion is my photography I made it a photography project as well. :) 

I gathered the supplies I needed: Paintbrush, plastic container to hold the paste, newspaper, wallpaper paste, and of course a glass of ice water! Need to stay hydrated :) 

 I took the balloon and marked where the doilies were going to lay on the balloon so it was easier once the doilies were covered in the wallpaper paste. 

I then cut the extra parts off that I didnt want on the doilies.. I didnt think this matched very well....

We then started covering the balloon with the soaked doilies, this was a little harder than I thought it was going to be... but we eventually got it to work.

I assembled the light kit that I bought at walmart, and I bought a clear round light bulb so it would match the overall design of the lamp!

Now we wait for it to dry..... :)

I'll post the finished product as soon as it's dry.... :)
