"Photography is a means of recording forever the things one sees for a moment" -Aaron Sussman
I feel extremely blessed to have found my true passion in life.....photography! I love everything about it, the excitement of meeting new people, the art of capturing the moments and expressions that mean so much and the challenge of learning something new everyday. I strive to create classic, natural looking, beautiful portraits with a splash of island style. I specialize in on-location, natural light photography and am available in Bluffton, Hilton Head, Beaufort and Savannah.

What to Wear Guides-Spring | Hilton Head Family Photographer

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Spring is just around the corner and it is a wonderful time to start thinking about booking a family session!  I would love to create beautiful images of you and your family together!   Please contact me if you are interested in a beach or park session on Hilton Head!  I am booking up very quickly for the spring and summer so spaces are limited!

Below are examples of Spring {What to Wear Guides} as a resource for my clients!  A few tips to remember when choosing clothing for your family session are:

1. Make sure everyone is comfortable with the outfit they are wearing since during your session we will be sitting, standing, squatting down next to little ones, and playing!

2. All outfits should coordinate and complement each other, which means, the colors should be similar, and only a few family members should be wear patterns.   *See guides below for coordinating outfit ideas*

3. No logos, bright colors, or distracting patterns.   Please remember timeless, natural and classic clothing choices look best outdoors and won’t date your images!

4. Here are a few of my favorite stores to visit for great clothing choices!


-Banana Republic


-Old Navy



-Zappos (Shoes)



What to Wear September | Hilton Head-Bluffton Photographer

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

The past couple days here have felt fabulous and is a reminder that Fall is right around the corner! I love fall; snuggling up in a cozy sweater, chilly walks on the beach, the fresh smell of newly fallen leaves, and of course-Halloween! Can you tell I am excited that the hot days of summer are behind us? Here is another installment of “What to Wear” fall edition. These clothing options would look great for a family photo session on the beach or at one of the beautiful parks in Hilton Head!

What to Wear-July | Bluffton Family Photographer

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Here is another installment of “What to Wear”!  I have had a great response from my clients about the previous “What to Wear” post and love being able to help them out by giving clothing ideas and hopefully making it alittle easier when they are planning for their sessions!  Enjoy! 

What To Wear | Hilton Head Family Photographer

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

I thought it would be fun and also helpful to my clients if I started a post on what to wear for sessions.  I know it is hard to know what will look nice in photographs and how to make colors work together, so I wanted to try to make it a little easier by posting an example.  I absolutely love the classic look of white/khaki/jeans for beach portraits, but if you are looking at having your family wear a little color, then it is very important to know how to coordinate the colors so that everyone will match.   If you notice in the example below, the little girls dress is patterned and all the other outfits have coordinating colors pulled from that one dress.  The color combinations and styles look fabulous together!  I am not advocating that you go out and buy these particular outfits, although if you see something you like the stores where they can be found are listed below.  I merely want to show how different clothing pieces can be pulled from your closets and put together in ways that make your family look great!   I will post more examples every couple of months, especially during the seasons.  Hopefully these examples will help!

XOXO,   Meredith
