Hi, I'm Hannah.

I'm a blogger and photographer on a mission to redefine sustainable style and conscious living for the modern day go-getter.  Whether you're a world traveling environmentalist or a city-hopping fashionista, I've designed this site to help you live to your most conscious and creative potential.  

From weekly style inspiration featuring ethical and sustainable makers, to vegan restaurant recommendations and everything in between, your journey down The Road to Hannah will feature just enough pit-stops to make sure that you gather all the tools needed to create a life that's not only pretty on the outside, but that feelspretty on the inside.  I'm talking mentally, physically, spiritually, and environmentally.  

My journey into this world of sustainability and fashion truly began the day I was born. I was raised in a family that believed that style was of the essence, and from the time I was young, I'd always loved to play around with clothes in a way that was a little bit different from everyone else around me.  People always joked that I'd find some way to make a name for myself out of putting outfits together, but while they laughed, I continued to think about the ways in which I could make this happen. So, when I was 15 years old, I began posting photos of my daily outfits on Instagram, and as they say, the rest is history.  

But my life was soon shook completely upside down when I developed severe food allergies seemingly out of nowhere at the age of 16. In order to heal my body, I was forced (re: blessed) to go 100% vegan, organic, and grain-free overnight.  This not only changed the way I looked at food, but made me reevaluate everything in my life, including my biggest love: fashion. Suddenly, I no longer saw clothing as frivolous and disposable, but as both a product and detriment to our planet. I began to feel an overwhelming sense of responsibility to make more sensible and sustainable choices in terms of my clothing, and began The Road to Hannah as a way of not only continuing to spread my lifelong love of fashion, but also to spread my newfound love and respect for the planet in a way that's practical and relatable.  

When I'm not running around trying to save the planet, you can often find me photographing punk rock musicians, paging through novels at your local bookstore, cruising around the East Bay, and searching for the perfect bowl of vegan ramen.  

Frequently asked questions

What Does The Road to Hannah Mean?

My name is Hannah- pronoucned hah-nuh. Generally, it's spelled Hana, but that's another story. Aside from being a popular Arabic, Japanese, and Hawaiian name, Hana is also a town in Hawaii, on the island of Maui. And to get to Hana requires driving through roads full of lush jungles, black sand beaches, and incredible waterfalls... aptly named The Road to Hana. And since I love puns... well, I think the name begins to explain itself, now does it? ;)

What gear do you use to shoot / edit your photos?

I shoot all of my photos on the Canon 6D with either the 50mm f/1.8, 24-70 f/2.8, or the 135mm f/2 lens, and I edit all my photos in Adobe Lightroom Classic.

What are some easy ways to live sustainably?

Swap your plastic toothbrush out for a bamboo one, thrift more & shop less, invest in a reusable coffee cup, adopt meatless mondays, recycle your garbage, bring your own takeout container, stop using plastic straws, make your own deoderant, use canvas totes over plastic ones...
