about me

Hello - and thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and have a read. Welcome to In the Den Photography.

I'm Hannah, and I'm a natural light, storytelling photographer, based in the beautiful county of East Yorkshire. I live with my husband, our three (extremely energetic) children and a crazy cockapoo. We are a family of explorers, and can usually be found outside on an adventure!

As a storytelling photographer, family sessions with me are very natural, relaxed and mostly candid. My style is colourful and timeless, and captures the magic in everyday life. Documenting those little details that you never want to forget; cherished memories that spark nostalgic conversations for many years to come. 

My Father was fascinated by photography; selling old prints in his shop, and collecting vintage cameras, and my love of photography was initially inherited from him. I got my first (film) camera when I was six, and my first DSLR just under ten years ago; I’ve always enjoyed capturing photos.

However, my real passion for photography began after I had my second child, Henry, and I immersed myself in photography as a form of creative therapy for postnatal depression and anxiety. From there it has grown into a business and a career that I adore.

I am a light geek - nothing makes me happy dance more on a shoot than beautiful light to play with; creating the extraordinary from the ordinary, and capturing honest, magical, timeless photos that you will treasure forever.

As well as working with families, I also regularly work with brands, independent businesses and creative professionals. So if you fit into one of those categories and are looking for honest, colourful brand photography to help tell your story, then I can help.

My photos have featured in Childrenswear Buyer Magazine and British Vogue, for Yorkshire childrenswear brand The Bunting Tree, and recently Wilds magazine for Sussex brand Hello Dodo. I was a featured family photographer on the Curry's PC World website for Canon (a huge career highlight!). I've also worked with M&S and Cath Kidston - featuring on both their websites and (international) social feeds. As well as the above, I frequently work with a number of brands who are stocked on Not on the Highstreet and Friends of Joules, so I'm experienced with their specific image protocols. Pop on over to my brand work page for more information. 

If you love the look of my photography, then I’d love to help tell your story, whether you're a family, a creative professional, or a business. You can contact me using any of the links below.
