Everything You Need to Know: Maternity + Newborn

Seattle Maternity + Newborn Photographer 

Congratulations on your little bundle of joy! I specialize in in-home, natural light newborn photography + lifestyle maternity photography. 

My maternity sessions are done on location – at a favorite park, in your home, or at a magical PNW destination. Sessions are playful, full of love and a true celebration of this amazing chapter in your journey as a family! 

Imagine cozying up at home with your sweet babe, relaxing in the comfort of your own home. I love getting to do newborn session at your home because you are forming so many amazing memories there – this is the home that you will bring your baby home to, the nursery where you will rock him or her to sleep in the wee hours of the morning & that is so special! I will gently guide poses and ideas, but my style is largely baby led, creating natural family photos.

“We feel so lucky to have found Meredith to be our family photographer as we go through many milestones. We have had the honor of working with Meredith for over a year now as she’s captured our move to Seattle, our first pregnancy, our daughter as a newborn, turning 6 months and 1 year and now capturing our second pregnancy and all the new milestones to come. She is so genuine and loving and makes every photography session full of joy, laughter and love that it feels like your are just spending the day with a best friend having fun. That feeling truly shows in the authentic photos she captures of our family! If you are looking for someone who is easy and fun to work with, who can capture every true emotion of each family member, and shows you in images the way you feel inside, then look no further. Meredith truly is the best and one of a kind!!” – Karin

Forever Clients

It is one of my greatest joys to get to photograph my couples & families year after year. I love building friendships with my clients, and that they trust me with each of their milestones (and the little moments in between). This is why so many of my clients become “Forever Clients” – When you hire me, you’re not just getting a photographer, but someone who genuinely loves to celebrate your adventures with you!
