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.

Minnesota Parent, September 2017 "A Moment In Time"
In addition to my career as a birth photographer, I'm an experienced birth doula and I'll be there to support you in any way I can during your labor and delivery. Whether that means whispering words of encouragement, showing your partner new ways to provide comfort, or putting down my camera to hold your hand, I'll help ensure that your birth experience is as supported as possible. My doula expertise is included in all of my Birth Story Packages at no extra charge.
I'm proud to parter with Brooke Walsh for my film editing needs. Birth Announcement films and Birth Story films are painstakingly edited by her skillful hands and I'm so glad to have her on the team!
