Meredith Westin is a Minneapolis-based photographer with an eye for storytelling and nearly a decade of experience in the field. She got her start shooting live music all over the Twin Cities, where she haunted photo pits and narrowly avoided getting hit with guitar picks. From there she expanded into wedding photography and discovered a love for lifestyle photography. Being invited to participate in one of the biggest days of a woman's life ultimately inspired Meredith to focus on birth work.
Today, Meredith Westin Photography offers incredible birth story sessions that give parents an opportunity to capture one of the most magical experiences of their lives. In her popular postpartum lifestyle sessions, Meredith works to capture the smaller, unscripted moments and details of new parenthood.
In addition to working as a birth photographer, Meredith has expanded her focus to include doula work. She is DONA and CAPPA trained and offers birth doula services, postpartum doula services, sibling doula services, and doula services bundled with her photography packages. Additionally, she offers bed rest/home help services.
When she's not managing Meredith Westin Photography, Meredith is a third-generation operator of her family's business and also dabbles in interior design. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her partner, Bobby, and their sweet pups.
A note from Meredith:
I donate five birth sessions per year to low/no income families and mamas in need. If you'd like to be put on my donation list for either a birth story session or birth doula services, please contact me and I'll get back to you. I also accept five PWYC (pay what you can) clients per year. Reach out with your ideal price and I'll get back to you. Relatedly, I do take payment plans and am happy to work with you on setting a payment schedule that works for you.
