Hana Fulwider wants to take your picture. She wants to be there to capture every great moment of your life, from your engagement and wedding, all the way through your own child's engagement and wedding as well as every other step along the way and beyond.
"[We] feel honored when our clients choose us to be part of their life cycle," Fulwider said.
After meeting her clients at their engagement photo sessions, Fulwider oftentimes remains in touch with her clientele for their wedding pictures, and stays on call for maternity and newborn pictures.
"We then become the family photographer," she said. "And are granted the privilege of seeing their children grow during first year portraits and year after year for their annual family session and special events like anniversaries. It's our hope we'll be able to photograph those children as high school seniors and even their wedding!"
Fulwider is the owner and principal photographer of Hana Portrait Design, a custom photography business based in Granby, Conn., and likens her venture as offspring of her own.
"Hana Portrait Design is a child of my passion to create, and I pour my heart and soul into every image," Fulwider said.
Serving the Boston area since 2006, Hana Portrait Design is now operational in all of Connecticut as well. Fulwider comes with many credentials, as she is certified by Professional Photographers of America (PPA) for her skill and proficiency in the art of photography. PPA is currently the only valid credential in the photography industry. It's hardly work for Fulwider, who says that she loves photographing people of all ages.
"We have many very happy clients," she said. "It brings me joy to share my work and there is nothing better than a happy client."
