Hannah Larkin Designs

With the opening of her Etsy shop, Hannah needed a few portraits of herself as well as a handful of pictures of her work. For one full afternoon we sat on the steps of her absolutely adorable downtown apartment and got down to business. The business of pretty paper, pretty pictures, and pretty people…named Hannah. Hannah is one of my oldest and dearest friends and even as early as the second grade her impressive drawing and drool-worthy typography skills stood out. Over the years her hobby developed into more than just a pastime and in college, when she began asking us what type of font we’d like on our birthday cards, we knew this girl had talent. Over the past few years Hannah has been designing wedding stationery and custom cards for quite the collection of amazing people. And being completely honest, it’s about time she made her work available for everyone.

This was my first, real product shoot and I kinda totally loved it. There's something nice about shooting in a controlled environment and being able to twist, turn, and pose the subject - er, product, as you please. Especially when the person you're photographing for is baking you fresh-from-the-oven lavender lemon cookies. I die.

Hannah created the stationery for Ryan + Lene's wedding last September and Jake + Sierra's wedding this December and she's currently working on the invitations for one of next summer's brides. Making me over-the-moon with joy to work with her on not one, not two, but three weddings!

And without giving it allll away, here's a little peek at the custom stationery Hannah just finished for my business. 2012 Brides, be excited - pretty paper is headed your way!!

Isn't her work amazing?! Pleasepleaseplease stop by Hannah's new (and absolutely ADORABLE!!) store and get your hands on at least one of her lovely little cards. And while you're at it, be sure to read the 'About' section. If you haven't already, it'll definitely make you fall head over heels in love with this girl.

Happy Wednesday, Michelle
