I loved this course! I feel like it gave me the knowledge on how to better communicate my feelings and thoughts towards my own work and to also help me approach my sessions differently in a more authentic way.

Meshea was absolutely amazing. So willing to share and interact with her students. Loved being able to see the BTS of her sessions and the edits.

Hello, I’m Meshea, Owner of Olive Gray Photography. I am a wife to a wonderfully supportive husband of 14 years and a mother to two beautiful children. I started my photography journey in 2012 as a hobby, but after the birth of my daughter I took the leap as a full time photographer and realized very quickly that photography is what stirs my soul.

As primarily a family photographer, I strive to capture authentic connections and to genuinely tell their story. When I’m not photographing families you can find me on the beach, hiking, camping, or traveling with my family.
