Kelly Miranda Photography | Durango Photographer bio picture
  • About this Durango Photographer:

          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!

Durango, Colorado Extended Family Session

I love photographing extended families because it is so special to have a session with the whole family that spans three or four generations. I know this family will cherish these images for a lifetime and the grandkids will look back on these special images of themselves with their grandparents and appreciate them. The album they ordered turned out so gorgeous and will passed down through the kids which makes my heart sing knowing I’ve given them an heirloom gift. I especially love these adorable custom collages that we designed for this Texas family. They came to Durango, Colorado on their family vacation from Austin, Texas and I thought the Texas collage and family collage would be just perfect for their home. I can’t wait to see these images on their walls and in the custom frame they ordered in a beautiful red wine color to compliment the colors of their home. Helping my families design custom wall art that matches their style and personality is what I do best and I get really excited when I photograph a family that is as passionate about the products I offer as I am.


If you are interested in custom wall art portraiture or boutique framing call me at 970-946-7279 or email for more information and to book your session.
