9-11 Hero Sessions | Rockwall Family Photography

It’s time again for Hero Photography Session in Rockwall!  This is my second year to participate and I couldn’t be happier!  Hero sessions are my favorite way to honor local heroes and one way I love to give back in my community.  Fire, police, first responders, and active duty military personnel are eligible for a free mini session with Meredith Joyce Photography.  Please provide appropriate ID at your session.  Mini sessions will be held in Rockwall, TX at Harry Myers Park on Thursday, September 10, 2020 and include a 15 minute session and 5 digital images.  Book your session here or forward this link to a friend who could benefit.

I’ve partnered with a group of photographers all over DFW, so if you are from a different area, visit our group page www.911heroesportraits.com for a listing of different photographers in different areas.

Thank you for your service!


AllSports Rockwall PopUp Session

Join us Thursday, May 7 at AllSports Rockwall as we honor seniors and other students in Rockwall ISD!  AllSports has installed some fun banners on their storefront that are perfect backdrops for a photography session:  one for Rockwall seniors, one for Rockwall-Heath seniors and one for other Rockwall ISD students.

Sign up for your free 10 minute photo session.  We’ll do one standard image, one fun image, and one creative image.  The creative image is totally up to you!  Use your imagination.  The sky is the limit.  Creative images will be entered in a fan favorite competition to win a gift pack from AllSports Rockwall! 

Have more than one child you’d like photographed? We can accomodate 2-3 kids at one session.  If you have more, feel free to book two sessions back to back.

I can’t wait to see you there!


Class of 2020 | Senior Mini Session, Rockwall, TX

Book you mini session now!  May 17 in downtown Rockwall; May 21 park location.  Perfect for high school, college, pre-k and kinder graduates!

Sometimes I still can’t believe we are here.  6 weeks in and just about 6 weeks to go to an unfinished school year. No more sports, extracurricular activities, or awards banquets.  I am sad for my own kids.  But I’m especially sad for our sweet community of high school seniors.  These kids looked forward to their senior year with anticipation, they made plans for all of the events that characterize these last few months.  But that wasn’t to be.

It seems like an anticlimactic close.  One day school just ended and we never went back.  I can’t change the current situation, but I can help these precious kiddos document their last days of their senior year. How will we tell the story of their senior year?

This May, I’m offering Senior Mini Sessions.  These sessions are perfect for a quick cap and gown session or a mini session in a fun outfit (maybe two).  They’re 15 minutes in downtown Rockwall.

I am anticipating that the governor will release photographers back to work any day now, at least while maintaining social distancing measures, but if, for some reason, we are not opened up on the planned date, we will reschedule it out a little further.

My mantra each day is that ‘this too shall pass’.  I maintain a gratitude practice each night so that I can look back and remember how great this time to was to slow down, appreciate family, and live more intentionally.  But that doesn’t mean I cannot wait to get back out there with my camera to meet you!

Book your Senior Mini Session today.  Sessions on May 17, 4-7 pm.  15 minutes.  $250 with 5 digital images. Book mini session here.

Looking for a custom session for your special senior?  I’d love to help!  May and June are gorgeous and those weekend spots will be gone before you know it.  Book now here.


Better Together | Front Porch Family Photography for Lonestar CASA, Rockwall, TX

During the current health crisis, we can all imagine that service organizations like food pantries have additional burdens, but did you know that children in our own community need our help through Lonestar CASA now more than ever. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates and this organization represents children who are in foster care due to abuse and neglect and advocates for them to find a safe and permanent home.  I’ve been contemplating ways to give back during this challenging time and when I reached out to Lonestar CASA, I was thrilled by their excited response.


Across the nation, photographers from all over have begun taking ‘front porch sessions’ to document social distancing for families.  Families come out to their porch and are photographed from the street. 


Due to the current guidelines in my area (photography is deemed non-essential and we are under a shelter-in-place order), I haven’t been able to get out and participate in this movement.  But it occurred to me recently that, though I may not be allowed just yet, I could offer these sessions over the summer as a special mini session event. I am currently living by the mantra that ‘this too shall pass’, and I have great faith that restrictions will begin to be loosened soon!  If we need to change plans due to changing requirements, we will do that.


I absolutely love meeting families in their most intimate spaces.  In-home sessions tell your story as a family better than most other types of sessions. During this strange time,  I won’t be coming into your home, and I will abide by all current local requirements. But I will document you at your home.  Out front.  

So grab your family.  Dress up or come as you are.  Grab your tricycles and your lawn chair.  Or just sit down out front. I’ll bring my longer lenses and document you being you.


And the very best news?  $100 from each session will go to Lonestar Casa!   


Booking now for summer sessions.  Fill out the form below and I’ll send over all of the details and a link with available time slots.  You’ll pick your session time and pay via online invoice. Then, you’re all set!   


MJP Mini Sessions are $250 and include 5 digital images.  20 spots are available with a goal to raise $2000 for Lonestar CASA!  Let’s work together to make a difference in the lives of Rockwall County children in the foster care system.  Book by April 30 for $50 off!
