Experience: Hattie took pictures of our sweet Tenley from the age of a couple weeks old to now two years old. Every session she never failed to capture our daughters outgoing, sassy, an active personality. She always captured perfect pictures even though as my child was running wild I thought: “Lord I don’t know if she will get one of her not in mid movement.” Well She did and lots of them, Hattie is amazing at keeping the child’s attention and making them laugh for that perfect smile photo! She also let us take some family pictures at some of our daughters session which I thought was amazing and kind since it wasn’t a family session per say. The sessions were very fair priced and never failed to amaze you with how the photos turned out.
Favorite Moment: After our first session, Tenley’s newborn session, I immediately clicked with Hattie. From that point on we became good friends and did lunch dates. She watched Tenley grow not only through the camera lens but in person as well. My favorite thing is how welcoming Hattie is and how friendly she is. I also like that she makes it known to get to know you and your family as her own. It shows during your sessions and you never leave that studio or place without a couple good laughs. She also is great with taking ideas you have an incorporating them into the photos. For example for Tenley’s one year session we did a “Mud Bog” theme. The pictures showed Tenley riding through “fake” mud which was made of edible food in case Tenley tried to eat it, which she did. Hattie was all for this idea and helped make it the most memorable photos we have.
Favorite Photo: Honestly.. THEM ALL! I can’t pick a favorite I LOVE all of Tenley’s photos and our family ones. When the photos are this amazing and capture exactly who you are and your personalities it’s hard to pick a favorite.
Other: I recommend Hattie to everyone for pictures over and over again. She is 100 out of a 10! She is worth every penny. She also makes a great lunch date and friend! ;)
FIRST YEAR PACKAGE
t’s really hard to pick my favorite picture but I grabbed a few that I just love and that I have hung on my walls.
Hattie started taking pictures for my family when I was pregnant. She took pictures of our then 3 year old Autumn and did a few maternity pics. The session was so much fun. She was so great with Autumn and really captured her fun and sassy personality. We loved it! Then I booked a year of sessions for my newborn. She did a session at the hospital and those pictures are some of my most favorite! She was so sweet and gentle! Hattie loves all her clients and her sweet personality is infectious.
You can totally tell Hattie LOVES her job. She also did family pics with 7 little kids and 6 adults. She rocked it! We couldn’t ask for a better photographer. Anytime someone is looking for a photographer I recommend Hattie! You couldn’t ask for a better more professional sweet person behind a camera lens. It’s also super nice that Hattie has tons of accessories that she lets you use for her sessions and everything is clean, pet free, and smoke free. Her studio has always been very clean and organized when we have been there and her turnaround time isn’t long at all. She truly is amazing.
Thank you, Amanda Madery
FIRST YEAR PACKAGE + FAMILY
Wonderful, energetic, enjoyable!
Having Hattie capture moments of laughter between my family of four is out favorite!
Hattie makes it fun and is so great with my kids and can always get the greatest photos that we can enjoy for years to come!!
Hattie has been photographing our growing family for almost three years. I purchased the First Year Package when I was pregnant with my son so we got to know her very well over the course of a year. There were days my son was less than cooperative, but she managed to capture the sweetest moments and smiles. Then when we found out we were expecting Baby #2, we had Hattie help us with our pregnancy announcement and she did a great job! We bought the First Year Package for our daughter as well because we were so pleased with our experience the first time around. Hattie is the most patient, loving and thoughtful photographer in all of Minnesota which is why we're willing to pack up two little ones and drive nearly two hours to get to her studio!
FIRST YEAR PACKAGE + FAMILY
This session was such an amazing experience. Hattie's studio was absolutely perfect. Well organized with many different options for props. Her patience with my littles during this session was heartwarming. Never once did I feel like we were rushed or being an inconvenience.
FAMILY + NEWBORN
Trying to even put our experience into words is difficult HattieAnn Photography has one of the best photographers!!! "Big" Hattie is truly one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. She takes pride it her work and has the patience of a saint!!! We have shared many moments with her and we are so thankful for her! How many times can you say your kids play photographer?!?! My little guy was playing photographer one day and telling me I am "Big" Hattie mom!!!
Favorite thing/moment about the session: I remember when we had our newborn pictures taken of our baby Hattie. I stood back and watched "Big" Hattie work her magic and I was brought to tears with how patient and loving she was towards my new baby. She was just as excited as I was as she was getting the beautiful shots.
Many people come and go in our lives...we are so beyond thankful and blessed to have Hattie to help capture all the different times in our families lives. She is truly one of a kind!!!
