Perinatal Mental Health with Rebekah
Meredith McKee Photography Blog

3M ago
I met Rebekah during Yoga Teacher Training many years ago. At the time, Om Mama was just an idea, and Rebekah had not started her journey to becoming a counselor, yet. But on a subliminal level, I knew we would continue to cross paths and cheer each other on. I have personally been in therapy since before Kevin and I started trying to get pregnant. I knew this was going to be a big life change, and I wanted to have someone in my corner. Little did I know how much I would come to need these sessions as we navigated infertility and IVF, as well as two pregnancies and postpartum experiences. I wa ..read more

Welcoming Baby # 3 | Newborn Session

I have been slowly easing my way back into sessions this spring and it is bringing me so much joy to celebrate your families again! VA is just about 3 months old now and it is has been a whirlwind settling in as a family of 4. The last 3 months have not come without their challenges – illnesses coming home with Fitz from daycare, struggling with VA’s eating (bottles, formula, etc.) and generally adjusting to life – and I am very grateful to still be somewhat on maternity leave. Thank you for supporting me through this season! I am especially enjoying sweet newborn sessions these days as I am ..read more

I met Sam several years ago when I was just starting Om Mama Co. (community + resources for mamas in Seattle!) and I was instantly drawn to her infectious personality. We have since become close friends and she constantly inspires me with her authenticity + passion for both work and life. We are both expecting baby girls in the new year and I wanted to get the skinny from her perspective on being a Pelvic Floor PT as a now pregnant mama herself! Sam and I also bonded through our journeys with IVF and how intertwined all of this is! I’m excited for y’all to learn more about her! I LOVED getting ..read more

Baby Sprinkle: Meal Prep Party
Meredith McKee Photography Blog
by Meredith
8M ago
Bumping with Baby #2! I love the idea of a baby “sprinkle” – a smaller party to celebrate your second (or subsequent) pregnancy/baby! I had an absolutely wonderful baby shower for our first baby, but definitely didn’t feel like I needed that the second time around (largely because we could reuse most of Fitz’s things!). I also didn’t feel like I needed a party centered around gifts, or even myself! So I wanted to do something a little different… Postpartum Nutrition I recently got to enjoy a meal with Katie of Nurtured Village – a postpartum meal delivery service in Seattle – and a few like-m ..read more

The Seattle area offers so many beautiful locations for family photos. Many parks include tree lined walks as well as waterfront access. The calm lake waters are perfect for toddlers to throw rocks or step feet into the water. One thing I definitley want for your session, is for you to feel connected to the space. Are you into the mountains, the trees, the water? What is your family’s happy place? While I am always open to suggestions for where to take photos I always have a few favorite locations up my sleeve.

Tips for Airplane Travel with Toddlers

We have flown a fair bit with Fitz in the last month – so I thought I’d compile what has worked best for us/him on the airplane! I am always learning tips and tricks from other parents, too, so please chime in in the comments with your favorite hacks!  What works for Fitz on the airplane has changed a lot as he has gotten older – He is currently 1yr 9mo – a very busy and very active age!  Packing the Bag First of all – organizing your bag! We have been using a bigger (bigger than his diaper bag) backpack to fit all the stuff. Then I use these reusable gallon sized zipper bags that I ..read more
