It’s TOTALLY unfair how short our pet’s time with us is. Their company, love, humour and hearts are so interwoven and integral to our lives (and come on, how many of you have iThings that are not filled with dark, out of focus, blurry photos of them???)
Those crappy iPhone pix are not enough. You can’t hang them on your wall or frame them on your desk. They’ll stay, crowded with your selfies, with the thousands of food, cloud and feet shots, until whatever storage you have is full. The years will go by and you’ll always be scrolling back further. You say you’ll sort them all ‘one day’ but you and I know that’s never going to happen. Then, when your pets pass… all you’ll have are low resolution crappy shots that can only live on your iThing. Never on your walls, desks, bed tables. Only on a screen.
Your pets deserve better.
And you know it.
Do yourself a favor- get them done right. Now.
This little Scottie was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her sister had passed a few weeks before. Their owners had taken my cards multiple times saying ‘we really need to do this.’ Unfortunately it was too late to get photographs of the sister but we still had time for this little one. We were able to have a beautiful day together. We shot these images of her and her kitty sisters in and around their home. A few weeks later, just before the canvases and prints were delivered, the little Scottie passed. The family of course was devastated but so very thankful to have quality photographs forever capturing her spirit to hang on their walls and see and love every day.“I LOVE ALL THE PICTURES!!! wow these are absolutely TERRIFIC!! thanks Meredith!! really enjoyed how easy you made the process and I love love love the beautiful pictures! I adore them!! Thanks again so much — it really means sooo much to have these beautiful, soulful pictures of my girl (and the teenaged kitties).” xoxoxo ss
This little baby boy J had to be one of the most edible babies on the planet. I loved loved loved LOVED photographing him!!!
How I managed not to sneak away with him in my arms (“quick, parents! Look THERE!”) I still don’t know.
I mean, LOOK AT HIM. Nothing short of complete delicious.
Those legs!!! Try not to eat your computer.
Oh my heart.
Could this family be any more gorgeous??? LOOK AT THEM!!!

Oh that belly!!!
Thank you so much G, A and baby J for sharing your afternoon with me! I so can’t wait to capture the years to come!
In the wintery months, if you have gorgeous indoor light, nearly anything is possible! This STUNNING 3 year old redhead (!!!!!) was the perfect combo of olde-time Hollywood beauty and vaudeville silliness… I absolutely ADORED photographing and spending the afternoon with her! Wise beyond her years and so so so so so so much fun. And that face!!!!! Once again proof that you don’t need all these extra props and lights and stuff. You just need life. What Happens Next is magic.
It’s been amazing to document her throughout the years. I could not love her more.
I have so much to say about this gorgeous girl and this gorgeous family I dont even know where to begin… so here’s a wee teaser… so many more to come …
4 year old girl’s fantasticness!!!
I have had the incredible fortune of photographing this gorgeous girl ever since she was one day old. This is just a sneak peak of many more photos to come. But I could not resist posting. And? … I could not love her more.
I love my job.
