Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnesota
Hi! I'm Meredith. I am a Minneapolis-based photographer and videographer with an eye for storytelling and nearly a decade of experience in the field. I got my start in photography shooting live music all over the Twin Cities, where I haunted photo pits and narrowly avoided getting hit by guitar picks. From there I expanded into weddings and discovered a love for lifestyle photography. Being invited to participate in one of the biggest days of a friend's life ultimately inspired me to focus on birth work. I am so honored to be able to offer incredible birth story sessions that give families an opportunity to capture one of the most magical experiences of their lives. In my popular postpartum lifestyle sessions, I work to capture the smaller, unscripted moments and details of new parenthood. In addition to working as a birth photographer, I have expanded my focus to include doula work. I am DONA and CAPPA trained and I offer birth doula services, postpartum doula services, sibling doula services, and doula services bundled with my photography packages. I also offer bed rest/home help services. When I'm not managing Meredith Westin Photography, I am a third-generation operator of my family's business. I also have a secret love for interior design and spend some of my free time reading design blogs and scrolling Instagram for pretty vignettes and shelfies. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with my partner, Bobby, and our Eeyore of a dog, Wally.
