Hannah Parker CD(DONA) is a professional birth photographer recognized by the International Association of Birth Photographers and a birth doula certified by DONA International. Hannah has been a full-time photographer working on location as well as out of her downtown studio since 2009. After photographing a birth for the first time, she recognized this as a calling and decided to share her skills and passion for art and birth with expectant families of the Sioux Empire. In 2013 Hannah decided to follow through on another dream and become a DONA certified birth doula. Now Hannah assists families to fulfill their childbirth visions through doula work as well as photography. Hannah’s work has been published in several publications including Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine and BizNOW. Her photographs have also been shared virally through BuzzFeed and Birth Without Fear blog.
Hannah spends all her free time playing with and teaching her three energetic and adorable sons, going to her husband’s concerts, reading young adult books and baking as much as possible. She always has a smile on her face when she is sewing, baking from scratch, reading children’s books out loud, exploring nature and gardening.
