In just a few short weeks, we will be moving from London all the way to Oahu, Hawaii!

It is with a bittersweet heart to have to say that in just over 3 weeks we are literally moving  to the opposite end of the world. Oahu, a small island that is a part of the larger Hawaiian Island chain in the Pacific, will be our next little piece of paradise.  The excitement of moving to the Hawaiian islands does not come without a bit of a heavy heart though.

We absolutely love living here in the UK. Our family has had so many experiences and made so many wonderful memories here. It will be a very sad day for us when the time comes to say goodbye to what has been such a welcoming home. While living here, we have had the privilege of meeting extraordinary people from countries all over the world. Our family has visited places that many will never get to see, and we have been truly humbled by it all. We are grateful for the lifelong friendships we have made and will consider ourselves beyond lucky to cross paths with some of these people again.

It’s not just our friends we are leaving behind.

Meredith Hodge Photography has come such a long way in the past few years.  I truly hope that it continues to grow into the creative brand that I dream for it to be.   It is a difficult task to have to pick up your business and move it to the other side of town.  Can you imagine moving to a different hemisphere?  As far as the business is concerned,  I will be shutting down the London operation on May 30 until we are settled again in paradise. We will have one further London family session on June 3rd.  You can get more information by getting in touch with us here.

Our growth and success would not be without the support from our clients, our vendors, and our partners.  A sincere thank you goes to each and everyone that we have worked with over the last three years. All that you have  done to help support the business has been instrumental in our past and future success.  People like Heidi Hayward, Rachel Tenant, Nina Mace, Gary Hill, Lisa McCormick, Alex Ingram, Claire Kempster, Andy Smith-Dane, and countless others.  I have been so fortunate to have been surrounded some of the the best in country and I will always be grateful for the relationships made with you all. If you are ever in Hawaii please look us up! We will always make time for our friends!  So it is with deep regret that we have to say goodbye, but hopefully, it is only just for now.

 

With lots of love,

Meredith

Do you live on Oahu? I would love your input!

We are a family that loves new adventures.  Of course we are looking forward to the obvious, visiting Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona.  Driving up to the north shore, to watch the surfers, as well as experiencing Honolulu for the first time and discovering the city.  We are super excited to learn about the culture and the history of the island.  If you live on the island of Oahu, leave a comment below.  I would love to hear from you.   What are some of your family’s favorite places to go.  What about the history of the island, are there certain customs that we should know before we get there?  Things we may not know about??   Things to see and do?  Do you have a favorite place to grab a bite to eat?  Or a great kids playgroup? I am a sponge looking to soak up all the information of the island that I can.   I am looking for anything, even if it’s not photography related!  Subscribe by clicking here for a special offer for those that help us get to know our new home!
