Happy Father's Day | Photography by Meg Miller | Fort Wayne, Indiana

I wanted to take minute and say Happy Father's day to the dads that trust me to capture their beautiful families that they work so very hard for! 

I've often heard that father's can be the most difficult client for photographers to work with. Honestly, I haven't had a father yet that I didn't find enjoyable.Most times, my dads are completely the opposite!  Happy, helpful, and playful. They know that this session means a ton to their wife and value her happiness AND documenting their family that they love so much! 

So hats off dads! I may be biased, but I think y'all are the best! Thanks for all that you do for your family each day!

VanOsdol Family Session | Ft. Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

I love seeing families annually!  Love it!  It is so fun to reconnect, see how much kiddos have grown, here about what's new in their lives and see how much still remains the same. I want to to check on that sweet dimple  and those curls that were so tight last year. Will they still love the same activities, books, and shows? Probably not.... and I can't wait to hear about all of it!  

Alexa pointed out that our session from last year was exactly one year ago. How cool is that? Exactly one year ago! Ryan has grown and changed so very much. He still has the most adorable eyes and smile. He is now on the move and pumps his right arm in the cutest little way and sticks his tongue out when he's really thinking.... just adorable!   

Thank you! Thank you-VanOsdol family!  I always love our time together and you just seem to get sweeter and sweeter!

Shivley Family Session | Fort Wayne, IN | Photography by Meg Miller

The Shively family was all smiles for our family session. These four were so easygoing that it made my job a breeze!  And these two kiddos were hilarious. I loved getting to know each of them just a little bit more... favorite ice cream, best friends,  best tickle spots... so much fun. A ton of personality in these two little people. 

Thank you, Shively family, for sharing your wonderful family with me on this beautiful summer night.

Through all of my photography endeavors, and really just life in general, this beautiful momma has been such a wonderful support. She is a true friend and I adore her!

Tielker Family | Mother's Day Session| Ft. Wayne, Indiana

Kim shared with me that she is ALWAYS the one taking the pictures (boy can I relate) and that she was so happy to have the opportunity to get some images with just her and Emma!

When I get to capture moments of mommas and their babies (big or small) it always makes me think of the movie 'The Family Stone.' Anyone seen it? Call me a sap, but it is one of my favorites. There is a scene where the soon to be daughter-in-law gifts a beautiful framed photo that portrays the mom pregnant with one of her, now grown, children. Without having a total spoiler alert.....the gift is quickly the favorite and of course makes everyone cry.... see, I told you I was a sap... anyways...

Kim, I am so very glad you chose me to capture this sweet memory for you! I hope that you and Emma both look back at these images for years to come and smile! A very happy Mother's Day to you!

Chandler Family Mini Session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

I had heard so much about this wonderful family so when I had the chance to meet them, I was selfishly really excited! Let's be honest. I'm never going to turn away a chance to hang with adorable kids, talk Pizza Express breadsticks (yes, I know I'm supposed to call it Hot Box, but I just can't) and drink imaginary tea from tiny pink cups. 

Still can't decide which I like better?!?!  She is such a beauty! 

that face though! gah!  

Thank you, Chandler family for a truly wonderful afternoon! I had such fun with you and your cuties!

ps-if you ever decide to bring Hot Box to Fort Wayne.... (cough, cough, hint, hint) PLEASE let me know. I'll be your very first customer. 

Blackburn Family Session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

I said on their Facebook post that I couldn't say enough wonderful things about this family. I meant it! Megan was one of my daughter's first teachers. She is incredibly kind, funny, and oh so loving. My daughter glows when she talks about Megan. This gentle, caring spirit and great sense of humor is definitely carried on in both of their beautiful children!  

Thank you lovely Blackburn family! Loved sharing an afternoon with all of you! 


Steffy Family Photos | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

Sometimes I feel like a broken record on here. I know that I say this all of the time, but I really am surrounded by amazing families. Y'all make this so much fun. 

The Steffy crew was a total blast. This family is a high energy, giggly, joking kind of group. Love it! There was always someone running, cracking a joke, laughing, or dancing. Speaking of dancing, there is a short video clip at the end of this post!

Just kidding! But, boy that would have been an awesome video! 

But honestly, how cute are they? Those hats (and man scarves of course)?!?!?!

and who doesn't love some end of the session cuddles

Thank you, Steffy family, for a wonderful, fun filed evening! 



November Mini Sessions | Kelly, Stacey and Hoffman Families | Fort Wayne, IN | Photography by Meg Miller

We have had an incredibly beautiful fall this year! I was crossing my fingers that this lovely weather would stay for our November mini sessions!  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day or better families to spend it with! Thanks to each of you!

The wonderfully adorable Kelly Family

The always stylish and oh so playful Stacey Family

and the sweet and smiley Hoffman Family

Thank you for an afternoon full of giggles, games, running, and smiles! AND thank you for choosing me to capture your memories! 


Daughtery Family Session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

Always love connecting with a new family. These four were fabulous! Check out these adorable kiddo outfits!

Mom had recommended this beautiful spot and I'm so very glad she did! The evening was beautiful! And that sunset?!?! Wooza! 

Thank you, Daughtery family, for sharing this stunning evening with me. Loved meeting each of you and talking kids, great neighborhoods, and of course, travel. 


Wing Family Session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

for_emails-fort-wayne-family-photographer-meg-miller_1080.jpg

I was first introduced to this family when my daughter and the youngest Wing daughter hit it off as 2 year olds. My daughter instantly loved this sweet girl and honestly I do, too. Over the next several months, I got to know her momma and it became very clear where this sweet girl got her sense of humor, kindness, and beauty. Needless to say, the other Wings are just as wonderful!  

Do you know the song Whole Wide World by Mindy Glendhill? If not, check it out... it kept popping in my head when I was editing these

Thank you Wing family for a wonderful session and for being such wonderful friends! 

Yaruchyk Family Session | Fort Wayne Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

This family.... Oh my goodness. Where do I begin? 

So often parents show up and they are beyond stressed. I can tell almost as soon as they get out of the car. I have three kids (and a husband who sometimes counts as one-yes he would say this, too). I get it. Getting things orchestrated, people dressed, AND making sure you look your best is no easy task. Oh and making sure everyone is fed and happy... anyway, yes, I get it. Then you get to the picture location and you just want your kids to behave. You're stressed because you think they have to be on their best behavior to get that one.perfect.shot. Ok, well let me let you in on a secret... just let them be. Honestly, just let your kiddos be themselves. I taught school for several years and I am around my own crazy crew. Trust me. I can deal with kids... energy, tantrums.... I'm not phased.  

ANYWAY... back to this sweet family.... they did just that! Their kids are hilarious, smiley, energetic little people and you know what? Mom and Dad just let them be. In fact, Molly even encouraged it-may I please see those dance moves soon, Molly? 

Aren't these people great? 

I had such a blast with you (and the strange weird Red Power Ranger who followed us?!?).  Thank you for letting your little people be their wonderful selves! 

Thank you for letting me capture your memories, Yaruchyk family!

 

 

 

Stewart Family Pictures | Fort Wayne Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

Brooke is one of those people who ALWAYS has a smile on her face. Her kind words and positive (also humorous) outlook on life are overwhelmingly fun and contagious. Seriously, try to spend an hour with Brooke and not laugh. I double dog dare ya. Impossible. 

Did I mention she has one wonderful husband and two adorable sons? Can you tell this family has fun together? 

See what I mean? 

Thank you, Stewart family!


Robinson Family Session | Fort Wayne Indiana

I first met Heather and her lovely family when her son and my oldest bonded over all things boy at school.... you know cars, trucks, dinosaurs, and dirt. I'm so glad that they did, because Heather is one amazing woman! We are lucky to have her, and her kiddos, in our lives! 

Alright.... can we discuss this AMAZING truck that her parents brought? I mean, really?!? 

Thanks for a fun evening and wonderful session, friends!



Stockmaster Family Pictures | Fort Wayne Indiana

Consider yourself warned.

Cannot wait to meet their new babe in a few short months! 

Thank you, Stockmasters for an evening full of fun, laughs, and great memories! Hope to be able to work with all of you again!
