Hi!! I'm Hannah Bucklin, and I am a proud wife, mother, and family photographer here in Knoxville, TN. I grew up in Paducah, KY but made my way to Knoxville after graduating nursing school in 2014. I started my nursing career at UT Medical Center in the Emergency Department and that is where my husband and I met. We quickly fell in love, got married, and now we are blessed to be parents to three wonderful kids, three in heaven (more on that here), and another baby boy on the way; can't forget to mention our 16 pound cat named Kitty.
For nearly my entire life I have loved photography. Since I was about 12 years old I have always carried a camera with me. Whether that be the old-school disposables, instant film, a point and shoot, or a camera phone; I had to have something to take pictures with me at all times. I can still remember anxiously waiting for my parents to take me to Walmart so I could drop off the film at the photo department and wait DAYS for my pictures to be developed. Am I sure glad that technology has advanced since then!
Most of the days you can catch me following the kids around trying to capture their every moment whether that be with my iPhone or my "fancy camera." The saying, “time flies when you have kids,” is no joke. I literally felt like I have blinked twice and my firstborn will be celebrating his FIFTH birthday soon. That is why I feel like photography is so important. Preserving the memories while you’re making them, freezing these moments in time. It may be that your little one is taking their first steps so you grab your phone and snap a picture, or it may be the big first birthday and you choose to splurge and hire a photographer to capture all the cuteness that a one year old brings (i.e the infamous “cake-smash"). Regardless, having those pictures to reflect back on in 10, 20, even 50 years from now and seeing all those sweet moments that you captured then is SO worth it. You are leaving a legacy for your children, and their children for generations to come.
My true love and passion for photography shifted gears once I had children. Since I'm not practicing in a clinical setting as a nurse anymore, it is still very important to me to feel like I'm making a difference in people's lives. I want my families to know that I care about them and that watching your family grow up, grow bigger, whatever the case may be, is very important to me. I felt led to open my own business and become a family photographer because I care about all the families that I capture. I take pride in providing a patient and nurturing approach to sessions. Being the one that you choose to capture your most treasured memories in "the now" is such an honor and it's why I love what I do.
My goal as a family photographer is to be able to provide you and your family with family photographs that define your family in your current season of life. Family snuggles on a blanket in your favorite park, horse-playing with dad on the living room floor, rocking your sweet baby to sleep in the nursery that you worked so hard on, the memories are priceless! Every family has their own unique story to tell, and I am here to help you capture yours! I want these pictures to bring you and your family joy for years to come. If this sounds like something you are interested let's work together to capture your family's sweetest moments!!
