Hannah Farrell

Hannah Lane Farrell was born and raised in Memphis, TN.  After attending boarding school in New England, she continued her education at Boston University’s School of Fine Arts where she studied theatre and photography.  She then began her career as a freelance photographer, initially shooting for a few different local publications including Cape Cod Magazine and South Shore Living.  Eventually she branched out and also started shooting portraits, events, and houses for real estate and interior designers.  About the same time, she discovered her passion for running and decided to run her first 10k race. Because her brother lived in Austin at the time, she chose the Austin Cap10k as the stage of her first long distance performance in running/the art of self torture.  Within an hour of arriving, she fell in love with the city and the rest is history.  She now lives downtown with her partner, Dean.  She is an adventurous yogi, aspiring but often less than talented cook, passionate gardener, speratic singer, and all around animal lover.  She likes hiking and taking day trips to Georgetown to visit her mother.  Hannah can also be found during her spare time at one of the many Austin watering holes, enjoying the fresh air with family and friends.
