Friday Featured Photographer: The Book Ferret

Happy Friday, everyone! So last year, I won second place in the Booklr Award’s Best Book Photography, and today’s featured photographer is the one who beat me. And you can totally see why. Today’s photographer works more as part of a team rather than solo, and she has some of the cutest little helpers around! It’s Meredith from The-Book-Ferret and her wonderful little models, Quigley and Diggle. Question Time! Name: Meredith Anderson Coffman Location: Salt Lake City, Utah but soon to be Chicago, Illinois! Favorite Classic: Pride & Prejudice Favorite Book to Photograph: Anna and the French Kiss Hogwarts House: Ravenpuff Pride! Random Question: If you were to write a novel about the adventures of Quigley and Diggle, which fictional world would it be set in? I think Quigley and Diggle would fit so well in Hogwarts! They would have quite the time exploring all of the books and crannies in the castle! You can find Meredith on: Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Vine,  Snapchat: bookferretsnaps. Thank you very much to Meredith (and Quigley and Diggle) for …
