Camryn Mini Senior Session | Whitley County, Indiana Senior Photographer | Photography by Meg Miller

Camryn and her mom met me on a gorgeous spring (can I call it spring yet?) night at one of my favorite spots in Whitley county. This spot is home to beautiful things that remind me of Indiana: wide open fields, stunning sunsets, and amazing horses (which you may recognize if you've visited Barefoot and Bluegrass).

This spot was perfect for Camryn's mini senior session!  We soaked up the sun and warm(er) temperatures as we discussed Camryn's future at Alabama in the fall!  So very excited for this amazing young woman. Cannot wait to see what is in store for her!

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!

Fisher Vow Renewal | Fort Wayne, Indiana Photographer | Photography by Meg Miller

You may remember the Fishers from their sun soaked fall session last year. Let me start by saying this family is as beautiful on the inside as their are on the out. They truly love and value one another.  So, when Randy contacted me about celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary and renewing their vows before their move to Indianapolis this fall, of course I was beyond excited and touched. 

Randy pulled of the surprise without a hitch!  There were so many special, heartfelt moments! But I told both Randy and Amy that what truly made me melt was watching their sweet children during the ceremony. They were in awe of their parents. What a wonderful example of love to show your children!  

Congrats Fisher family!

Marriage is wonderful... and hard.... and takes effort every.single.day, but is so worth it. Thanks for reminding us of this and sharing your amazing story!  

Best of luck in Indy!  You will ALL be missed.

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!

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

I always REALLY enjoy my time with the Tielker family and this session may have topped the cake!  It is honestly such an honor to have families return to me to capture their sweet memories.  I've watched Emma grow so much even just since this past spring. Her personality continues to come out more and more and as it does, it could not be more fun to watch and photograph. She's funny, sweet and oh does her rendition of the ABC's make me melt. 

Thank you, Tielker family for another wonderful session! Thank you for putting up with bugs, my singing, and my broken flip flop situation.... man I'm a mess!  I love watching Emma grow so very much and cannot thank you enough for trusting me with your precious memories. It is a privilege that I do not take lightly!

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!

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.

Josh and Tim | Fort Wayne, IN | Photography by Meg Miller

I'd love to say that I know these two SUPER well and that we hang out all of the time (Josh and Tim-hint, hint, nod, nod, cough, cough). Their laughter and love of life make Josh and Tim a blast to be around! Even as I was editing their pictures, I couldn't help but smile thinking about our time together. 

Josh and Tim's good friend, Katie asked if I would help surprise them on their anniversary as they made things official at the courthouse. How could I resist?  I was so very honored that I was able to share this special day with them! 

As I asked them to tell me more about one another and their relationship, it was so clear that they were the real deal. From talking about how they met to discussing details of their wedding, it is obvious that these two are head over heels for each other. 

Josh and Tim, you make my heart burst.  I couldn't be happier for both of you!  Congratulations. What an amazing couple you are!

....And I'll be watching my phone for that hang out invite ;)

Vickery Family Shoot | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

The Vickery family was such a blast to connect with for so many reasons!  These 5 are so very kind and their love for each other is wonderful to watch. Samuel has so much fun in store for him with his two great big sisters!  

We also realized that we BOTH had a connection with Faith Church in Indianapolis!  Faith Church serves so many on the north side of Indianapolis. While I was there, it also housed La Escuelita.... an amazing preschool that served second language learners in Washington Township. I had the privilege of teaching and connecting with families at both Faith and the Washington Township community for several years- a true blessing.... anyway... back to the lovely Vickery family.... I cannot say enough about this group.

They are the real deal and a true honor to be around.

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

You wanna know what makes me do a little happy dance at a shoot?

You might say when a family shows up with great outfits-yes, of course that's amazing!!!! 

Happy, well fed kids? Sure, yep...always appreciate that.

Relaxed parents? Yes! That is honestly such an amazing treat.

But, the number one thing that I love is to have families that come to shoots truly happy to be with each other. It may sound silly, but families who really and truly are excited to be together are the best. Even if getting everyone (including mom) made them all sweat (is this just our family). And even if there was child (or dad) bribery to get everyone to our time together.... I'm telling you the families that really enjoy each other.... well you can tell... and really does show in pictures. 

Well, the Henry's are one such family. They are beyond fun to work with! They get one another, appreciate one another, and all of the silly things that make them unique. Arden-your infectious giggle still has me smiling! Finn you are such a sweetheart and little ham-Annie, we need to get this kid a camera! So fun to watch him take shots at the end. 

Thank you, Henry family! It was truly my pleasure to spend time with all of you!

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!

Kent Family Maternity and Lifestyle Session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

I honestly enjoy each family that I get to know.... really and truly. There is something so special and unique about being able to spend time with families and document their unique relationship and story. Each is so personal and very different. 

This family was amazing.... they made my 'work' easy and oh so fun. A lifestyle maternity session with laid back, fun personalities, a well fed and freshly napped kiddo, and did I mention they're all adorable, too? Yes, please!

(Warning.... this post is picture heavy... sorry...not sorry)

Sarah, you are stunning!  Really, someone who looks this good pregnant should really think about having a few more...right? ;) 


and since we were blessed with some amazing Spring temperatures, we snuck in some outdoor time, too!

Isn't he precious?  Can we talk about the lashes??? And this chin!  Wow!

 I want to print these for my office!  

Kent family, it was such an honor to document this special time in your lives. I cannot wait to meet your sweet baby boy!
