About Hansell Photography

HI! I am Laura! I love capturing moments. Big moments, little moments, fleeting moments, OMG moments, ANY and ALL moments! I am a mother to a preschooler, who hates to have his picture taken, and a wife of 11 years to my best friend, who is an engineer. We live in the country! The city just was not for us so we live where the little boy can run and play, the husband and tear stuff apart, the views are glorious, the air is clean (even if it does occasionally smell of eu de pig... or cow) and the drive to town is relaxing. I use all natural light and shoot on location in the the greater IOWA region. After all this great state is not that big... From the south west corner to the north central areas of Iowa although I have been known to travel east on occasion. Together we can decide where best to capture your moments. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule your session. Looking forward to hearing from you!!

My Favorite Time of Day

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Sunset is by far my favorite time of day. The sky turns all these brilliant colors and I know it will only last a little while. I try to get out and take sunset photos all year but October through March are by far my favorite months. There is usually a bite in the air and the sun sets early. I love how during harvest the dust in the air adds this haze, and during the most bitter evenings while the snow is covering the ground everything seems pink or orange and sometimes the grayest blue, during the planting season I can hear the tractors humming and the energy is just magnificent. Now that I've rambled enough…

I love how the color changes all throughout the 5 to 10 minutes I'm standing outside shivering.
