I am beyond thrilled to share that I received the official confirmation letter saying that I was chosen to participate in Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Children Campaign!  This is a nation wide campaign with a cause very near and dear to my heart. Beauty Revived is an empowering philanthrophic organization that give opportunity and awareness to those whose voice may not be normally be heard. In particular, showcasing a child who shows attributes of kindness, courage and strength.

Please help me by nominating a child in the greater Fort Wayne area.

  • a child between the ages of 2-12

In past years, the children highlighted by this campaign have done amazing community service, fought cancer head on with a positive attitude, and been amazing care givers. Click here to read more about some of the amazing children that were a part of last year's campaign!

The chosen child will receive:

  • photo shoot from me.

Eden | Senior Portraits | Bishop Dwenger Class of 2018 | Fort Wayne, Indiana | Photography by Meg Miller

This girl right here. I'm telling you.... this one will move mountains. She has spunk, intelligence, and beauty. I could write paragraphs about perfect test scores, tennis, and what Eden plans to study at Purdue next fall. But... to be completely honest with you, what stood out to me the most at our session was her kind, confident, yet humble manner. To say she seems wise beyond her years would be an understatement. I truly cannot even begin to think about what wonderful things lie ahead and the many lives she will continue to touch in so many ways.

Congrats to you, Eden!

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!

Fine Art School Portraits | A Classic, Modern Approach to School Photography | Fort Wayne, Indiana

This school was such a treat!  As I sit here reflecting on my time with these students, I cannot help but smile. They were each so full of personality and it was a joy to capture their smiles, smirks, and grins.

I always enjoy my time photographing children-whether that be in a family session or through Fine Art School Portraits. I am so very excited to be a part of creating school portraits that will  serve as a marker in time, but also capture children's beauty in an authentic, classic way. To hear parents say that I was able to capture their son's true smile or their daughter's best dimple makes me heart sing.

I hope that you enjoy these sweet faces. Thank you so very much for sharing your students with me!

Brough Family Session | Fort Wayne Lifestyle Family Session | Photography by Meg Miller

It really doesn't get much better than this crew. Watching them smile, hearing them joke, and love on one another.... I could have soaked this sweet family up all day. AND we got to end our time together by walking around the '07? yep... perfect little Saturday morning if I do say so myself!

Erb Family Session | Photography by Meg Miller | Fort Wayne, Indiana Family Photographer

Alright I have a confession: Fort Wayne was not my first choice of places to move to. I know. I know. This is mostly due to the cold weather-I'm a total lightweight when it comes to cold.

BUT here's the thing that I've learned: It really comes down to the people. The people... your friends, school, coworkers, church.... that's what makes a home. It is really people like these four that can make a good place even better. My family feels beyond blessed to have the Erbs in our lives!

And our (very chilly) session was a blast! I loved watching them together and ESPECIALLY these two kiddos.  No doubt that they have a very special bound.

Thank you Erb family, for trusting me with your adorable family's memories!  And thank you, Erin for continuing to sharing your amazing talents with me!!! If you haven't used Erin's wonderful company Fleurish yet, I cannot recommend her enough!

There are so many beauties of this 'job'...meeting new people that you've heard so very much about, feeling like you've known them for ages, getting to snuggle their ADORABLE newborn... can I write that one about 5 more times?

Lifestyle Newborn Session | Hagee Family | Fort Wayne, Indiana Newborn Photographer | Photography by Meg Miller

I may be slightly baised, but December babies are extra special. There really is not much better than filling those long, cold, winter days with beautiful newborn moments. It was such a treat to be welcomed into the Hagee's home. Our session was filled with all those adorable newborn things that we mothers of bigger kids have long forgotten..... the adorable grunts, the cutest little lip movements, the way they gaze up at their parents, oh and no one can forget how simply delicious they smell!  Gah!  Henry was the perfect baby during our time together and we definelety soaked up all of those wonderful newborn moments.

Congratulations Hagee family!  Henry is a true blessing!

The Borne and Torres Sessions | Fort Wayne, Indiana Family Photography| Photography by Meg Miller

   I feel the need to apologize. I haven't quite figured out how to manage busy season and blogging friends... or busy season and laundry, but anyway....so it has definitely been way too long!

These people are near and dear to my heart. They're the family you call when you need anything from a listening ear, a distracting laugh, someone to watch your babies (human or fur)... I mean really and truly they are the best.

And you know I love working with families at locations that are meaningful to them. So when Lindsey talked about having their family pictures at the barn, I was all in!  It is obvious that this crew feels pretty at home in this beautiful setting surrounded by family and fur babies that love them!  And isn't there just something extra special about the bond between people and animals?!?!?

Caudell Family Session | Roanoke, Indiana Family Photographer | Photography by Meg Miller

roanoke-family-photographer-photography-by-meg-miller.jpg

These three make my heart so happy. Not only are they truly a joy-and a heck of a lot of fun- to be around, but they really value photography. You see, I get two main types of clients: I have clients who want updated portraits. Whether it be for portraits around their home, Christmas cards, Grandparents, or because their youngest just has the cutest dimples right now.... they want new portraits. And yep, been there. I get that!

And then I have clients who see their portraits as freezing time and as artwork. They value the process (no that doesn't mean that they love picking out outfits, because no one loves that). They get the vision that I'm trying to convey and they understand the feelings that I'm trying to capture.

To be honest, I really value and understand both types of clients, because I have been both. But what I will say, is it makes the whole process even that much more fun, when I know a feeling is conveyed through a portrait. When I know that a momma will look at a portrait a get goosebumps because she remembers how sweet and snuggly her daughter was... yep that gets me.

So Caudell family, thanks for being you. I always love my time with you and it goes by way too quickly. Hope you enjoy these as much as I have. XO

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

photography-by-meg-miller-indiana-family-photographer-bw-7-of-47.jpg

I am blessed to be surrounded by some pretty amazing mommas. The kind of moms that love their kiddos fiercely, push them to be their best, and acknowledge their hard work and accomplishments. Dima is one such momma. Watching her kindness and loving nature makes me glad to be her friend AND reminds me to try to do the same with my own children. And the rest of her family??? Well the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with this crew! I couldn't have enjoyed our session more!

Thank you, Mourad family, for trusting me with your sweet memories!

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!

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

One of many things I love about this photography journey is meeting new families!  I was introduced to the Sackett family after they won on a session with me through the Brains for Hope silent auction. If you haven't read about Brains for Hope, take a minute and read their amazing story!

When I sat down to read through Keri's questionaire responses, I was overwhelmed by her love for her family. It is obvious that she views each member of her family as a pure blessing!  And after I spent more time with her sweet kiddos and husband, it was very also obvious that they feel the exact same way about her! Can't wait to share a sneak at our gorgeous night!
