Watching families grow is truly amazing. Seeing their relationships grown even stronger. Getting to see toddlers grow into independent young children. Observing parents' pride as they look at their children. All of these things took place in my time with the lovely Lindzy family.

Lindzy family, thank you for letting me watch your sweet family grow again and again!  It is such an honor!

Laipple Extended Family Session | Roanoke, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

We all know 'that' teacher. The one who connects with each child. The one who keeps in contact with each student. The cheerleader. The coach. The hugger. The educator that encourages our families-not just our children who are in their room!  The epitome of the experience that you want for your children...and really people in general.

Well, two of my children have been VERY blessed to have that exact experience with one such teacher! They've started their school years with the very best. So when I had the chance to meet our favorite kindergarten teacher with her family in a place that it extra special to them, I have to say I was beyond excited-and of course nervous!  

All nerves went away when I was greeted with a familiar hug and warm smiles!  We all know the expression, 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.'  Well this family is a perfect example! Their genuine interactions and love of family was so refreshing to absorb!  These sweet people truly love and respect one another exactly as they are!  

Laipple family, thank you for sharing your lovely home and beautiful family with me!  You continue to bless our family in so many ways!

The Eddy Children's Session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

Confession time. I love people watching. I always have. I can remember being very young, sitting on a park bench in Disney World and having the best time simply people watching.  

Am I the only one?

Not the creepy, stalker type of people watching.

The observant, thoughtful kind of people watching. Watching families interact. Watching the dynamic between couples. Wondering where they're from....what jobs they have.  what their names are.....and one of my favorites... watching siblings interact. 

Cue the Eddy children. These three are pretty special. They truly love and respect each other. The 'bigs' could not be more protective, helpful and encouraging. And Cohen.... Cohen is the entertainment and he knows it.... from the curls, to the grins, the rolls, and of course the dinosaur roars. It is such a sweet and enduring dynamic to watch. Those Eddy parents are doing a ton right!  Hats off!  

Thank you for continuing to trust me with your sweet family's memories. It is a true joy to watch your children grown as individuals and together as siblings. And happy, happy birthday Cohen!   PS-stop growing so darn fast;)

Hopen Family Session | Lake Wawasee | Syracuse, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

This family is near and dear to our hearts. My daughter pretty much considers herself a second mother to all three of these boys... did I mention that she's 6? Ha! In all seriousness, I'd keep all of these boys in a heartbeat. Little boy perfection.

And their momma.....she's as pretty on the inside as she in on the out.  she continues to be such a support and cheerleader. A constant source of great ideas and honest feedback as well as helping me to step outside of my comfort zone. Pretty much the perfect friend.  Oh and she's pretty darn talented, too. You have to check out her work at Maggie Hopen Photography. 

Thanks for a wonderful weekend Hopens!  We ALWAYS love out time with you!

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!

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

This mini was so special. We lived next to Jared and Sarah and spent so many fun evenings and afternoons together..... While we LOVE our new house and are so thankful to Jared for all of his hard work through our move, we can honestly say that those evenings and afternoons we spent together are still one of the things that we miss the most about our old house. BUT it was so fun to catch up with these 4 and watch them grow. These boys are simply adorable!  Always a joy to spend an afternoon with the Kents.

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!

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

It is such a privilege to work with families like the Pauls. The fact that they trust me me capture their family repeatedly is such an honor. Oh how I love watching these boys grow!  We were blessed with a beautiful October night. The kind you wish for and want to soak up until the very last ray of sun is gone.... and we did just that. We played, ran, laughed and soaked up all of the wonderful fall sunset.  Paul family, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful family with me again!  Love you guys!

Senk Family Session | Columbia City, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

Those who know me well, know that I may have a slight obsession with red barns, big properties, and amazing light. My kids may or may not frequently yell 'MOM!!!! beautiful red barn with stunning light!' Poor things are brainwashed. 

When I pulled up to the Senk's beautiful home I was blown away! Their property is blessed with gorgeous buildings (including a red barn!!!), adorable animals, stunning light, and wonderful humans. I loved hearing about the chickens, horse, donkey, dogs, and cats!  And of course I have to mention how beautiful these three sisters are!  Couldn't help but smile around these 3. 

Thank you, Senk family, for a beautiful night in your wonderful home!  I could have soaked it up all night!!!

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

One of my favorite things about keeping in touch with childhood friends is watching them become the awesome parents you knew they'd become. I've known Amelia's mom for a loooonnnnggg time. She, and her family, are the real deal... the kind of family you strive to be when you have your own family. Katie, you too are one wonderful mom!  Amelia is one very blessed little girl.  

Now I'm going to try VERY hard to not over share here...but let's be real, you need to see these pictures! Sweet Amelia is just too cute not to share! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Miner Family Session | Leo, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

I could not have been more excited to meet the Miner family AND see their stunning new home. I have a soft spot in my heart for homes homes in a country setting. How could you not? Beautiful home... surrounded by fields, woods, and wildlife!   Combine that beautiful setting with a warm, loving family packed with adorable kiddos. Oh and did I mention they love to laugh?  Needless to say our session was a blast. 

Lora, I may need to move in ;) I had way too much fun.  Thank you so much for inviting me into your home. Your family is stunning-inside and out!

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.

Eddy Newborn Family Session | Photography by Meg Miller | Ft. Wayne, IN

I have a confession to make.... I don't think I fully enjoyed my own kids are newborns. I don't know exactly why. It may have been lack of sleep. It may have been wanting to do everything perfectly. I'm guessing it was a combo of those things and a few others, but either way, I feel a slight bit of guilt when I see beautiful babies like Cohen. I wish I would have snuggled just a little big longer with my own kiddos. So, after many failed attempts to turn back time, I'll just make up for that by snuggling my (big) babies and loving on sweet little babies like Cohen. ;)

I have loved getting to know this family over the past year. Each member has their own unique bit of spunk. It.is.awesome! The jokes, giggles.... sometimes cackles..... I love it all!  I cannot wait to see what fun Cohen will bring to this wonderful bunch. 

Thank you, Eddy family, for letting me capture this special time in your lives!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
