I began photography in high school (LONG TIME AGO). I always photographed what I wanted to remember because my memory is a sandbag.
I photograph what I love most- children and pets. My “sessions” are more like playtime than a photography session. A typical shoot usually involves lots of interaction, engagement and, undoubtedly, silliness. I spend a lot of time connecting with my families and will do anything to genuinely engage with a child. Ridiculous dances, elmo songs, dinosaur calls, anything. Same goes with pets.
I love children! Ever since I was small I’ve been dubbed the ‘pied piper’ – leading the giggling pack singing, marching, and dancing. Weeks after a session when parents write ‘my son keeps asking when Meredith is coming back to play’, my heart bursts into stars.
I’m also obsessed with animals. I’m still upset my parents didn’t buy this one house when I was 6 because it came with a bunny. I couldn’t care less what the house looked like, I wanted that bunny. Since I was 7 years old, I dreamed of hugging an elephant.
There’s something undeniably special about childhood. Everything is an amazing adventure. Life is new and shiny and even a piece of string can hold a child’s interest for hours. There’s so much to explore and do and see and so much fun to be had. I love it.
I want your children to see, feel and know how much they are loved. How special they are. How much joy they bring to the world.
I want to help you celebrate your amazing moments with your family and pets. To capture and document your children’s stories of growth and how much they are loved. To genuinely connect with each of my subjects and capture their unique personality, individuality and heart.
I can’t imagine anything more important.
In addition to capturing the joy of childhood, and our deep love for our pets, I enjoy volunteering at pet shelters photographing dogs to help them find new homes, eating dark chocolate and green smoothies, missing David Bowie and just recently, hugging an elephant for the first time.
I can’t wait to meet you.
