Welcome to our blog!

Jake and I are excited to be starting our first blog. We decided to create this blog to help keep everyone updated on what's new with Meredith Photography. By frequently posting new photos of our latest shoots, you all can know what we are up to, see our most recent work, and just stay better connected!

Erin + Nate 12.27.08

This was my last wedding of 2008 and it was awesome! Erin is the sister of Carissa and I just love this family. They were married in the SLC temple and held an afternoon reception at Pierpont Place. Here's a few of my faves.

Isn't Erin's dress fabulous? Once again, she and her mom designed and made it.

Las Vegas Baby

Or should I say babies? I took a trip to Vegas this past weekend with my mother-in-law and sisters-in law for a little girls trip (well, almost girls trip...I do acknowledge you're not a girl Scott, and neither are any of the babies!). My sis-in-law Connie (who lives in Texas) was heading up to vegas with her boys and husband for her husband's chiropractic convention. Since she just had her second son in December, and we hadn't met him yet, we (me, mom-in-law Mary, sis-in-law Ashlee and her son Daxton) thought we'd drive down and meet them there.

We made quite the entourage as we cruised the strip with two strollers, three kids, and pregnant ol' me. I think I may have walked just a little too much because I was DEFINITELY feeling the consequences yesterday, but we still had a great time.

The first night we went on a little walk down the strip before dinner. Here's Jackson with his new fake smile.
And now his CRAZY eyes (looks like Mary's sportin them too...)
The girls
Fitting in the car was quite the feat. This shot just doesn't quite show how crammed in there we all were.
Bad lighting, but no one cares about that but me, right?
My brother Dave and his wife and baby were also down there that weekend for Dave's business trip, so I hooked up with them one of the nights. Here's Easton playing on the FAO Schwarz piano.

And here's some of Jackson and Daxton having some fun.

I have more pics, but they were taken on my other "real" camera (these were all point and shoot), so I haven't downloaded them yet. I will because I want to post the cute pics I got of my newest nephew Tyson. He's so cute!

Okay, and last but not least, here's couple of pics that Jake snapped the other night with the point and shoot in our dimly lit hallway. They are terrible, but for those of you who are asking for shots of my tummy (ahem, Lindsay), here you go. I'm planning on taking much better ones soon...

Cute as a button

Check out this cute little 4 mos. old I had in the studio recently. Working with cute little girls like this makes me more excited for my own to come! (Especially on days like today when I feel like I'm 12 months pregnant rather than 6...I'm running out of room in there!)

I took these of my sister FOREVER ago (obviously since they are maternity shots and her little baby is now several months old!), but I never had time to post them. She just posted a few on her blog, so I thought I'd better get with the program and post some here too. Isn't she fabulously gorgeous?

I'm back! And got a new look to show for it....

It's official. Meredith Photography is now MEREDITH CARLSON PHOTOGRAPHY. I've been working furiously to get my new website up and running, and I'm finally finished! Woot woot! Check it out: www.merephoto.com It's the same url, but I've now separated into two sites: one for weddings and one for portraits. Next up, this blog. It's getting a complete overhaul. Don't mind that my logos don't currently match, because they will! I was going to wait until they were both done, but I can't wait.

And one of my resolutions for 2009: Blog at least 3 times a week! If I don't, send me a comment and you may receive a little gift! :)

Last but not least, I'll leave you with some bridals of the gorgeous Bonnie.

Just a reminder that today by midnight is the last day to submit orders from any sessions photographed prior to October. All galleries shot before then will be removed from the proofing gallery to make room for new 2009 sessions. Thank you!

In the next week or so, I'll be debuting my new wedding website, an updated portraits website, and a whole new look for Meredith Photography! Lots of fun changes are in store for 2009, so stay tuned!

And on a more personal note, I hope you have the most fantastic New year's eve! I'll leave you with these photos I shot with my little ol' point and shoot. Every time there's a new snowfall, my neighbor sculpts the snow around his mailbox to be a different character, scene, etc., and each time it's incredible! I always mean to take pictures, but never seem to get around to it. Well, I'm shaping up and will start debuting his latest and greatest creations here! First up, Madagascar.
