Hello and Welcome! I am a family photographer, based in Chesapeake, Virginia. I have been photographing families around the world for the last 5 years, and I am now in the Hampton Roads Area. This page will give you all the information you need to know about working with me, but if you do have any questions please get in touch.
I am a creative lifestyle photographer. My love and passion comes from being able to sit back and watch a family interact with each other and to capture those fast fleeting moments for you. I want to provide to you not only pictures, but an exceptional service from beginning to end! Client satisfaction is extremely important to me.
Let's start by getting to know each other. Either a phone call or an in person consultation will be the perfect way to start planning your session. Here we will go over all of the details of your session, from location to planning your clothing, any particular poses you are looking for, down to your must have shots. We will also talk about what you would like to do with your images afterwards and answer any questions you may have.
During your session I want you to be lighthearted and fun for you and your children. I've found that being outdoors gives kids the freedom to run around which always prompts the most natural smiles. My main goal is not only provide photographs for your family, but also a window into the memories of this time in your lives.
After your session, I go through the entire roll of images, cutting out the images with eye blinks, funny faces, duplicates or just the ones that are, let's say - unflattering ;) I will then hand edit the images for you and upload them to your own private gallery. Your images will be ready within two weeks of your session.
Meredith often has booking promotions so please get in touch to see our current pricing.
The non-refundable creative session fee covers Meredith's time and talent during your session, as well as a planning consultation via email or phone before your session, 60-90 minutes on location or in studio with your immediate family, custom editing and retouching of 20-30 polished images for your Collection Reveal/Ordering Session. The Creative fee is due at time of booking to secure your session date. Within two weeks your portraits will be ready to view. Purchases of all products must be placed during the Session Premiere.
All prints and products are sold separately from the session fee.
Before booking with any photographer, please review their portfolio to get a feel for their artistic vision and ensure you are trusting the right person with your family and your memories.
I offer one to one and group mentoring to photographers in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk as well as the entire Hampton Roads area. I want to give my clients a personalized experience for beginners as well as seasoned photographers who are looking to improve their skill set.
If you are a mom (or dad!) with a camera, and want to learn how to get yourself off of automatic mode, our beginners photography course is the right fit for you. In either a private one to one setting or a workshop of 4 or more, Meredith will take the time to make sure you understand how to put the concepts in place.
