About KellyBehind the Lens

     My name is Kelly Miranda MacNiven and I am a family and wedding photographer in Durango, Colorado.  I grew up in the cold, peaceful mountains of Durango, Colorado where I acquired an appreciation for art and nature. In my childhood, I developed my love for theatre, music and photography. I love Durango 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 as a professional family photographer. 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 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. Since becoming a mom, I discovered my love for child portraiture and am finding new creativity through photographing my son. Being close to our family here in Durango has been such a joy and having the support is priceless. I am so happy to be able to do what I love in such a beautiful place!
