Hi there! I'm Hannah Mayo. I laugh easily, love to read, often overthink things, and I really enjoy a good impromptu living room dance party with my three awesome kids. I am quite fond of coffee and green juice (it's all about balance right?!).
Art is practically in my blood—my parents owned an art gallery on one floor of our home when I was a baby—and I've been creating in some form or other since I was old enough to hold a paintbrush. I'm Maine born, Florida raised, and happiest when I'm near the ocean. Yoga, nature, and writing help keep me sane.
I am the sole photographer for families, births, and lifestyle work, and main photographer for weddings and commercial projects. I studied photography during my time at Palm Beach Atlantic University, and officially began my professional career by launching Hannah Mayo Photography in 2008.
When I'm not busy working, homeschooling my 3 (soon to be 4!) littles, and keeping life running in the Mayo household, I can probably be found writing, nose-deep in a good book, spending time outdoors, playing with watercolors, whipping up some kind of concoction in the kitchen, or (full disclosure) watching too many episodes of something on Netflix.
As of 2017, I'm so happy and grateful to be joined in this work by my very best friend and business parter Manny (who I also happened to be married to). He works as videographer and second shooter for weddings and commercial work. He is also the owner and lead aerial photographer/videographer at Sky's Edge Aerial Imaging.
He enjoys paddle boarding, building the perfect fire, flying drones, editing, shooting video, touring craft breweries, and beating everyone at any game, any time (he's also slightly competitive). He loves me and our family so well, and brings me my coffee every morning (need I say more?).

"Hannah is an exceptional artist! She did a product shoot for me and I was blown away by her stylistic abilities as well as the way she made each piece of my pottery come to life in the setting behind the lens. It seemed at first like this was a simple thing to do but after comparing my shots with hers I realized...you need a professional to look professional! Hannah is as laid back as can be and sets a tone of relaxed capability. She made my thoughts and ideas come to life without me even having to explain them. I think that is the sign of a true genius and an amazing photographer!" -Lani G., West Palm Beach Commercial Photography Client
"I wanted a photographer for the birth of my twins and instantly fell in love with Hannah’s work. I was thrilled when she was available for me even though she her self was 7 months pregnant. I booked her for maternity and birth shoots. She rolled with the punches when my induction took (a lot) longer than expected and when my nurse wouldn't let her in the delivery room at the last minute. Hannah came to the house to do a mini-newborn shoot instead. A few weeks later, a beautiful wooden box with my sons’ names carved on top arrived. Tucked lovingly inside were both printed photos and a memory stick with the digital copies. The beautiful presentation blew me away. Hannah is not only an amazing photographer and artist, she is also a wonderful mother so she understands uniquely how to photograph the raw beauty of motherhood and birth. Hannah’s photographs of my family are at once beautiful as they are moving and I am so grateful to have these memories captured forever by her talented eye. Hannah is a phenomenal photographer and a wonderful person, I can’t wait to work with her again!" -Sarah A., Delray Beach Birth Story Client
"Working with you has been phenomenal. From arranging our session, to meeting you during our session, to the way you package everything we received... you are an amazing photographer! We truly enjoyed working with you!We love the way you captured the boys happiness on our vacation and we will forever have beautiful memories throughout our home! Thank you!" -Diana G., Singer Island Family Portrait Client
"Hannah is a wonderful and artistic photographer and captured exactly what I wanted in our session. She really helped to put my husband who doesn't really care for being photographed at ease and was able to capture some really tender moments for us. I will always treasure the work that Hannah did for us, and I would recommend her to anyone. She is a true professional and a great artist!" -Karen W., Jupiter FL Maternity Portrait Client
"The photos are gorgeous. The lighting and colors are phenomenal. My family is thrilled with the way they turned out. Thank you so much!" -Jessica K., Palm Beach FL Family Portrait Client
"Hannah... Thank you for making me feel TRUE. You have a way of helping form a connection with your subject." -Mary S., Jupiter FL Portrait Client
