honest + intimate

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime kinda thing

Celebrate the little moments


You’re embarking on the most incredible journey of your life. Every yawn, stretch and cuddle is a moment you’ll want to hold onto. We know how quickly these early days fly by and how hard it can be to live in the moment and take it all in, especially through the exhaustion of those first few months.

Families come to me to capture your baby and your first moments as a family in the comfort of your own home, where we can seamlessly blend the beauty of your little one and your love for each other with the warmth and familiarity of home. 

I’m available to travel anywhere in or around Montreal and I am also available for travel.


Meet your Montreal Newborn Photographer

Hi, I’m Carolina!

My favourite part of what I do is seeing the love and beauty that exists in every person and every family, even when we’re too busy to notice it ourselves. In the craziness of life with kids, we often forget to pause and really see the small moments that make life special. You are living them now.

I know the feeling of rushing around, or of sitting alone in your car in the driveway just to enjoy a few moments of silence. I know what it’s like to hear the word MOM called out a million times, to feel pure exhaustion, and also the thrill of love we feel when our babies run into our arms, hearts open wide. It’s all part of life, and none of it will last very long. As a mom of two big kids, I know this feeling first hand. 

In every photo, a piece of your heart.

What to Expect from your session

I am a strong believer in keeping things laid back, and that includes photo sessions.

There are no expectations from you or from your children, and especially your newborn baby. Baby’s are the boss – and that’s the mindset I come in with. It’s fine if your baby needs to drink, or to be changed or soothed. I am not timing your session – I will stay with you until I know I can give you a beautiful variety of images that you will love.

Your session is a time of happiness, a time where you get to just sit back and take it all in – enjoy your new little baby.

Your house doesn’t need to be perfect – home is comfort, home is happiness and that’s what makes it the perfect place for your session. All I need is you and your baby (and a window!) and we can create beautiful, meaningful images of your family.

I’ll arrive at your home with just my camera. You can show me around quickly and I’ll choose the best area to photograph you in, generally where the light is best. I won’t fully pose you since we want your images to look and feel natural, but I will offer plenty of guidance to help capture those beautiful, candid moments you’ve seen in my work.

I understand how intimidating it can be to be in front of the camera, so instead of focusing on me, you’ll be focusing on your baby and family. There’s no smiling awkwardly into the camera. If that’s the type of photos you want, then this type of session might not be the right fit.

My goal is to make this experience comfortable, stress-free, and memorable for your family.

Life’s beauty, in every frame.

Hold onto the moments that matter.

We were thrilled with the results!

We were absolutely thrilled with the final results of our photoshoot, and we cannot thank Carolina enough for capturing these precious memories for our family. If you’re searching for a talented, personable, and highly skilled photographer in Montreal, go with Carolina Hanna Photography. We wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone looking to preserve their most treasured moments in stunning photographic form.

Commonly asked questions, answered here:

I recommend scheduling your session while you’re still pregnant. I accept only 8 bookings per month and tend to fill up 2-3 months in advance, so please book early to secure your spot. Newborn sessions are ideally done within the first 3 weeks, but natural lifestyle photos can be beautifully captured at any age. If baby is already born, please still reach out, I will try to fit you in if my schedule allows.

There’s no time limit on your session, I will go with your baby’s flow, stopping for breaks anytime they need a feeding or a diaper change. Most sessions last about 90 minutes, a little longer when toddler siblings are involved!

Once you’ve reserved your session I will send you a session welcome guide to help prepare you for your session and this will include a what to wear guide. With newborns I always recommend light, neutral colors as these will add elegance and softness to your images. I have beautiful outfits available for your little one to wear, in warm neutral colours.

Your gallery will be ready for you within 2 weeks following your session!

An in-home newborn photography session offers a stress-free way to capture your first moments as a family in the comfort of your own home. We seamlessly blend the beauty of your little one and your love for each other with the warmth and familiarity of home. I’m available to travel throughout Montreal and surrounding areas. Outdoor newborn sessions are possible in the summer months.

In-home newborn sessions include your full immediate family (you, your spouse and children). Pets are more than welcome to join in as well. These sessions do not include grandparents or extended family members. 

There’s no problem if your space is small – all we need is a room with a window and we can create beautiful images for your family. Many of the photos in my portfolio were taken in small modest spaces. The photos are about your family, not your home.
