teaching. workshops. retreats.


I am drawn to focusing on the emotion and the moment of photography (not just the technical aspect of cameras) this makes me approachable as a teacher to all skill levels of photographers.

I love meeting like-minded people in real life and have had amazing experiences
teaching at retreats and workshops, both in person and online.


“My comfort zone stared me down. I knew I had to do this, to go toward the scariest thing (self-portraits). Fortunately I was in safe hands. Taught by the lovely Meredith, I learned that making self-portraits is not the height of narcissism as I had thought in the past (this judgment a sure sign I was really just scared of it).┬áNow I know it’s quite the opposite, in fact. Making self-portraits is a high act of self care, self love. Of really seeing my inner self and honoring that. Of seeing my truth, my story, not other people’s stories about myself.” ~ Hillary
