"I truly thrive on finding the “in between” moments; the candid, intimate expressions capture a heart and soul."
My journey toward photography began shortly after our daughter was born and I had an overwhelming desire to document every milestone of our family in photos. I decided to take the leap to pursue my talent for graphic design full time, which lead me down the path to become a professional photographer, and I have never looked back! Photography has been the most rewarding career choice of my life and has led to so many blessings and opportunities I could not have dreamed of.
I am a Business Administration graduate of Lincoln Christian University. My husband, Andrew, also works with me in the business. He is a Veteran and Warrant Officer in the Army Illinois National Guard, works a full time government job and lends his photographer’s eye when I need a second shooter.
We have a beautiful four year old curly-headed daughter, Sydney, two Arabian horses, three barn cats and a Shiba Inu dog, Niko! We live by a work-hard-play-hard mentality but love every minute of it.
We love, and I mean LOVE, visiting Colorado. The sights, smells and vibe of the Rocky Mountains is like no other. We road trip to our favorite spot, Estes Park, at least once a year for some hiking, shopping and downright rejuvenation of our souls.
I've been riding and showing Arabian and Half-Arabian horses for over 15 years. We own two Arabians, 25 year old VW Desert Knight (Desert) and 5 year old Zenetti WEA (Zman). My involvement in the equine industry is what inspired my design business, Mane Event Promotions, and eventually let to the creation of Hannah Draughan Photography.
Niko is our five year old Shiba Inu dog. He loves traveling with us to Colorado and snuggling in for family movie nights!
