It was IMPOSSIBLE to only share one from this session SO I had to share all of my favorites! I had the pleasure of capturing these sweet moments of Christian and Kurt recently at their new home. It was filled with yummy coffee, lots of laughs, almost burnt cookies and so much fun! I probably overstayed my welcome and chatted their ears off with wedding talk a little too much but Hey I am a sucker for love and anything wedding! I am probably on the level of overly excited about capturing their wedding as they are having a wedding. Haha! Anyways....JUST LOOK AT THESE TWO AND FALL IN LOVE with them like I have. =)
I have said this a million times before. The Alexander family are so close to my heart. I have been photographing their family for years now and to be there for ANOTHER amazing moment in their life is so heart warming. Congratulations on your sweet new baby girl! I am still in shock that we are even here. I remember chatting with Lauren before she was married about her having another little baby in the future .... and here we are. And she is even more precious than I ever imagined.
P.S. Did mom and dad do an amazing job on her nursery or what?! I know I would love to have a room like hers! What a unique and gorgeous theme for a perfect little baby.

Never a dull moment with The Bryan's Family! Every year we plan for something bigger and better and each year it gets crazier and even more fun! I mean these kids are only young once...Why not go all out and dress them up while we can. I love spending my day with each one of these amazing people! I have grown to know this family and watch the kiddos grow up so fast. It's Bittersweet! BUT I still have a few more years with them before they take off in the world. =) Yay for our future, crazier sessions together! Love you guys!!

I couldn't have asked for a better day than the day of Chelsea and Tyler's Wedding! The clouds were fluffy, the sky was so blue and there was so much love in the air! I am so fortunate to have amazing clients in my life who turned into such great friends. It was a beautiful wedding day and I am so Thankful to have been a part of it. Thank you for sharing your day with me Chelsea and Tyler. I am so happy for you both and love watching you two grow together into a beautiful and strong family. I look forward to many more years with you both documenting more amazing moments in your life!

When you immediately click with someone who you just met who also shares the same dreams and are interested in the same industry as you...what do you do? You shoot! =D
Brit and I both just upgraded some of our gear and had to take it out for a spin. We ended up finding a super awesome, creative and talented model to join us for the day and play. I mean Caitlin Rocked this shoot from beginning to end! We decided to just go all out and be fun and crazy together. Just learn with one another and have fun! Here are a few photos from the session and a few behind the scenes of Brit getting her jam on in manual!
Thank you, Caitlin, for volunteering your time and being patient with us while we figured out our new gear. =)
A well deserved High Five moment because Brit shot the entire session in Manual! Woo Hoo! I am so excited to see how far she will take all that I could give her from this experience. <3 <3
Balloons + A windy day = Chaos ... Haha! Luckily we were able to still have a great time and produce beautiful photographs together. I had so much fun with these two and enjoyed every minute being beaten by balloons and battling the windy hair! Congratulations to Caitlin & Hunter on the announcement of their little boy! I am so excited for you both and look forward to meeting him when he arrives!

I am a little emotional about these photos right here. This family is a great example why I love what I do. I have worked with Lauren since Maddox was about 1 years old. I have watched this boy grow in front of my camera and I have witnessed Lauren becoming a strong, independent single parent who strived for nothing but the best for her son. I have seen Lauren and Maddox go from a family of two to a family of three and now I get to watch her family of three grow to a family of four! I have captured smiles, laughs, and cries. I have captured small and big moments in her life like her wedding day! This is what I live for. To capture families like Lauren, Ford and Maddox throughout their journey. This family holds a special place in my heart forever. We grew together and became amazing friends through this career and I have so many other amazing clients like this family that I have grown with as well.
I really, truly love what I do!
Congratulations you guys! I am over the moon excited to meet baby Eisley!

To a beautiful couple inside and out.
May your life together be full of love and happiness.
Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Trosclair!!
I never imagined that I would have the honor to witness and capture the wedding of Brittany and Steve. Its funny how life works....I am so Thankful that we were able to cross paths again and create beautiful memories together. I couldn't be any happier she chose me to tell her story through my lens. Her wedding day was Picture - Perfect the entire time. See for yourself. ;)
My daughter and I had a little adventure the other day and I had to blog about it. We are incredibly Thankful and so pleased with the service we received from Thomleys Christmas Tree farm. I can not express how much fun my daughter had feeding the animals, playing through the trees and even making her own glass ornament! The joy on her face was the most amazing thing for me. I had to capture every moment of course. But seriously you guys..If you have not been to this Tree farm yet you really need to go! They had a Gift shop with beautiful Christmas Decor, Friendly Staff, A sweet Horse who loved all the attention and feed. Baby goats and bunnies! Not to mention the whole atmosphere and location is so well kept and gorgeous. A beautiful place to walk around or take photos at. I loved it all! You have to go see for yourself. If you have not picked a tree out this year I suggest going ... like NOW. And if you already picked your tree that is okay. I still suggest going and taking a walk around and enjoying all of what they have there or for my Coastal Clients you should plan a trip for sure next year!
Thank you again for sharing your space with us, Thomleys Christmas Tree farm. My daughter loved every minute and so did I. I will have another session to post from a few clients who came all the way from Gautier to take photos at your beautiful property. =)
Also, Big Thanks to Mohawk Steel & Glass for teaching my daughter how to make her own glass ornament. It was so neat to watch and experience. You guys are incredibly talented!

The first time I met Savannah I believe she was 7 years old. She wore these fancy dresses and little heels for almost every family gathering we had. I thought she was the cutest! It is hard to believe she is now grown up with two jobs and almost finished with high school! What an amazing woman she has become. I am so proud of her and excited to see where she goes in life! This young lady will go far. She works hard for what she wants every single day. I couldn't be any happier with how she turned out and the path she is going. Love you Savannah. Thank you for letting me capture this milestone in your life. You are amazing and never lose that kind heart and big spirit you glow with every time I see you. Congratulations on your Senior year!
XoXo ~ Meg
Now booking for 2017. If you are a Senior of 2017 from the Coast or Hattiesburg area you still have time left to book. Please message me as soon as possible as I will only be booking very little sessions next year. Thank you!
Oakleigh's 6 month photo shoot at the pumpkin patch!
Seriously you guys....this baby had my ovaries SCREAMING....she had me rethinking my life! I wanted another baby after leaving her session. Haha! She was full of smiles and so much happiness that she made my entire day. This baby pulled at my heart strings like no other. Pumpkins, Sweet baby smiles and the Fall weather...what more is there to love?
I am now booking for January 2017. My dates will be VERY limited next year as I will be working on weddings more which will take up most of my time. So please book a date as soon as you can. =) Thank you!
Every session I approach I try my best to capture those real, raw moments! I try to avoid posing as much as possible. I may start off with a pose but I love to capture those moments in between when they feel awkward sitting there so prim and proper and then bust out with a belly laugh...those are the moments I crave for! EVERY session with the Schauger family I know for sure I will leave with tons of those moments. The laughs, the silly faces and all. This is what a true family session is like with kids. Crazy, Rambunctious and so much fun! That is a perfect session in my eyes. Ones like this that emit so much love and happiness. These are the moments you will miss the most when time gets away and you will appreciate these captured moments down the road and can remember how much fun it was that day. Mom losing her shoes, Drew taking a face dive to the dirt and Gage hearing the "wolves". I truly love this family and their energy. I wanted to share them with the world!
Now booking for January 2017
I live for couples like these two! Right off the bat I fell in love with their love! So sweet and fun! I had no choice but to blog these two because It was the hardest to narrow down which to show on my page. So instead you all get the pleasure of seeing their entire session! You will not regret it. I mean both of them have such contagious smiles and amazing personalities. Their images radiate with so much love!!
Congratulations Laurel & Jonathan on the engagement! I wish the best for you both and a long happy life together!
Love ~ Meg
It is always a pleasure seeing and getting to capture more memories of your past clients. I had the honor of photographing Jerica and Nathan's October wedding of last year AND now their FIRST Wedding Anniversary this year! I have to say this session is one of my favorites to date! Whatever could go wrong...did that day BUT we had so much fun, shared laughs and got to ride a hay ride...? Funny moment... Nathan thought this ride was going to take us to the LAND OF PUMPKIN GALORE .... but it just took us in a BIG circle instead and brought us all the way back to the beginning when we were originally in the middle of the patch! ... Thanks Nathan! Haha. But really it was so much fun. I am in love with every image here and I had to make a blog post about this because I wanted to share every image at once!!
Thank you Williams Family Farm for sharing your property with us and your kind hospitality.
Happy Anniversary Jerica & Nathan!
From the very first moment chatting with Jade through emails about her wedding day. I was already over the moon ecstatic! I was going to capture my very first same-sex wedding! I had such high hopes for this day and these two lived up to every moment I had hoped for. I support love, any love! And that is all Jade and JorD'an showed one another was just that! SO MUCH LOVE! It is so hard to put into words what I witnessed that day. It was just beautiful. Something you had to of been there for. I am sorry you missed out. Luckily. I took photos....lots and lots of photos!
I hope you both enjoy these Jade & Jord'an. It was so awesome getting to know you both and sharing these memories together on your wedding day. And I look forward to many more memories we capture together in the future!
XoXo your crazy hair, Photographer & Friend, Meghan.
The complete Gallery will be released shortly.
Congratulations Mrs. & Mrs. Orr!!
CR & Briou. What can I say about these two that they do not already know or have heard before? Their personality, spirit, smiles and all! I fell in love with the both of them! I am extremely lucky to have been chosen to capture their special day and watch two beautiful souls become one. There was not one dull moment the entire time! I left there feeling so happy from watching and capturing all the love that surrounded the both of them that night. Good things happen to good people, and I don't know two people who are more well - deserving of the kind of love I've witnessed. Thank you so much, CR and Briou for giving me the chance. I appreciate you both and I am happy to call you a friend. May you always remember the love shared on this special day. Wishing you a lifetime of love!
For better or worse, you're in this together so might as well have fun along the way!
