I found Hannah on Instagram. Evanna Lynch (best known as the iconic Luna Lovegood) hosts The Chickpeeps, a podcast on veganism. Evanna excitedly shared via IG that singer-songwriter Hannah had written the podcast's intro ditty. After clicking the link in Evanna's post and following Hannah for a while, I learned that she was a) adorable, and b) a solid Christian. As a fellow believer and creative, I drew much inspiration from Hannah's posts on life, love, and sorrow. To my delight, she agreed to meet up for coffee and an interview for my She Is Balanced project, and her husband Jason, came too!
La La Land Kind is a lovely cafe that assists young adults aging out of the foster care system. Their nonprofit, We Are One Project, aids these young adults with job training and life skills to prepare them for successful independence. This was the perfect place to meet Hannah and Jason, a crazy in love couple with passions for art and ministry. I was incredibly blessed by their kindness, and by their praying for me after the shoot. Their little daughter is a lucky girl.
