My name is Kelly Miranda MacNiven and I am a family, children, baby and wedding photographer in Durango, Colorado. I grew up in the cold, peaceful mountains of Durango where I acquired an appreciation for art and all the livings things roaming. In my childhood, I developed my love for theatre, music and photography. I love this city and all its beautiful people and there are endless things to do here. I am passionate about photography and family so it makes sense that those two things would combine to allow me to follow my career path. Since becoming a mother, I've gained a whole new understanding of what family means, how to capture the most special moments between parents and their children and how to work with little ones in a way that makes them shine in front of the camera.
My husband and I recently welcomed our first child, Carter Thomas MacNiven, into the world December 2nd, 2012. We are having a blast being new parents and enjoying watching him grow. I have rediscovered my love for child portraiture and am finding new creativity through photographing my son. We have also recently moved back home to Durango after living in Austin, Texas for the last five years. Being close to our family has been such a joy and having the support is priceless. We are so happy to be back where we belong and for me to be doing what I love most, where I love most: photography in Durango!
