Meet Nashville Family Photographer, Meredith Teasley

Tell us about Meredith Teasley Photography! How long have you been in business?

Meredith: I’m a family photographer based out of Nolensville. I’ve been in business since 2011. I am a wife and a mom to 3 little ones. When my first was born, I transitioned into doing more work with photography in order to stay home with her! Since then, my business has continued to grow. I now offer in-home lifestyle newborn photograph, family portrait photography outdoors, and I also do wedding photography!

What made you want to work with families?

Meredith:I have always loved working with people! When I started in photography, I wanted to work with families and kids… but now, having young children of my own, I enjoy relating to parents, sharing struggles, and reassuring new moms who are in the thick of things!

What is the philosophy behind Meredith Teasley Photography?

Meredith: My philosophy is that each season of life is so fleeting. I want to capture memories for families of those special moments, whether it’s the addition of a new child, or a yearly Christmas card photo. I strive to create an incredible experience for families which means even if they show up stressed and exhausted, everyone leaves their session excited to see the finished product, and confident that investing in family photos was the right decision! 🙂

What are your strengths compared to other family photographers?

Meredith: I have 3 kids of my own, so I 100% “get it” when families are stressed and frustrated that everyone’s not on their best behavior! I’m a fun yet calming presence, and always strive to provide an excellent finished product for my clients. I have an eye for details, and don’t mind being directive.

What attracts parents to work with you?

Meredith: Most families I work with are looking for a photographer with experience and confidence in their craft, who is not afraid to direct you where to stand and what to do, while providing a fun experience for your family! My work and my personality lead to many word-of-mouth referrals, and I love connecting with friends of clients this way.

What are some cool new and innovative trends you’ve seen in family photography?

Meredith: I am excited to begin offering in-studio heirloom portraits (in color and black & white) for families who are looking for an heirloom print of their little ones. This is a classic, but recently revived trend in the industry, and is perfect for the sitter (around 6 months) through elementary-aged child.
