Mad Lavender Farm https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2020/6/mad-lavender-farm I spent a relaxing Saturday morning at Mad Lavender Farm in Milford, New Jersey.  If you are looking for a fun, peaceful and different activity, this could be it.  Nestled in Hunterdon County is the tranquil lavender farm where you can spend time picking lavender even during the pandemic.   There are also adorable baby dwarf goats, goat yoga, chickens and organic eggs to purchase.  Adrienne makes lavender honey lemonade to sample and refresh after spending time in the fields picking lavender.  The tiny shop is filled with lavender goods including hand sanitizer.  Everything is organic without any pesticides.  With hosts Adrienne and Don welcoming you to their farm, it is a pleasant and peaceful way to spend a few hours.

Vista Verde Portraits https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2020/2/vista-verde-portraits It was such a fun time photographing a few of the very talented and hardworking staff at Vista Verde Ranch.  We were able to do some portraits in the great room of the ranch on a cold and snowy day.  The lodge makes an interesting and beautiful backdrop for the portraits.

Easton Peace Candle https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2019/12/easton-peace-candle The Easton Peace Candle in downtown Easton, PA.  A few years back, I photographed the candle from the view of 3rd Street.  The candle has been updated so I went back to photograph the candle again from the view of 3rd Street.  I also put my own twist on the candle using my Lensbaby Lenses and Omni Filters.

Christmas Traditions https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2019/12/christmas-2019 It definitely was a struggle this year to get everyone together for our annual Christmas Tree gathering.  It was tempting to just say the heck with it and go down to the corner to purchase a tree off of a lot.  So glad we figured out a way, early Saturday morning in the mist and rain.  The great thing is that no one else was out cutting trees in the rain.  Such a fun outing including our newest addition, Nic's furbaby Athena.  Next year Baby Johnson will be on the outing.  This year, the tree is smaller and instead of the usual hunt for the perfect tree, we found the tree in about 10 minutes.  The Christmas tree farm is a favorite in Asbury NJ, Black Oak Tree Farm.

Cottage in the Woods https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2019/11/cabin-in-the-woods Cottage in the Woods.

As long as I've known my friend Susie she spoke about her parent's cottage in Northfield and I knew it was a special place. As soon as I entered the cottage, I knew I had to photograph all the details that made it so special. It rained the few days that I was there, which made it seem even cozier.  It was such a joy to be able to capture all the details of this special spot in the woods.

Thank You https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2015/11/thank-you Yesterday, Thanksgiving Day, I spent time with my family and took the day off from my photography business.  Reflecting on the day,  I am thankful for Nic taking on the tradition of carving of the turkey and making us laugh, Annalise becoming such a sweet and caring adult,  Kyle as he becomes an addition to my crazy and sometimes loud family, my parents as they age and become the mentors for all of us, my brother for being my brother, my pup Dolce for bringing us joy... I am so thankful.  I am thankful for all you of my clients and fans, for trusting me to capture you and your families and for liking my photos and encouraging me to continue.  Many, many thanks and my hope for all of you is to have a thankful, peaceful, beautiful and safe holiday season! God Bless!

Memories in Print! https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2015/10/memories-in-print As the days get shorter and darkness creeps in earlier in the evening, I find myself doing all those tasks that I put off all summer long.  The other evening I went into my walk-in closet to start to organize and clean out clutter.  That closet holds some of my dearest memories from my children, both away at college now.  For instance, I have a box of their adoption announcements and another box containing their crafts from preschool and elementary school.  Call me a hoarder if you will, but now that they are out of the house, I treasure those items that bring me back to those moments in time. 

Want to know what takes up the biggest amount of space in that closet?  Photos, boxes and boxes of photos of my kids and family.  When my kids were young, there was no such thing as a digital camera only film.  Cell phones did not have cameras.   I treasure these photos, when I hold them in my hands I can feel the day they were taken and the memories are so vivid.  So I got to thinking about how my children will have these photos to show their children, and pass down to generations.  Whenever we visit my parents, we look through old family albums of me when I was a child growing up and my parent’s' when they were younger and my parents' family.  We love looking at those old black and whites and try to imagine what life was like.  The photos evoke emotions and feelings.     

This brings me to the point of this blog.  What will you and your children be looking at 10-15 years from now?  Will your digital photos disappear with your latest phone upgrade or computer upgrade?  What good is a photo if no one ever sees it, if it doesn’t evoke an emotion, a memory or a smell that brings you back to that moment in time?  Can you capture those emotions from a photo on a phone?  

How many times do I hear “I can’t remember the last time we had a family portrait taken”?  "We need to have a family portrait done, but I'm waiting for...." How about a photo of your elderly grandparents or parents?   How about a beautiful portrait of you that you can pass onto your family?  I love when my kids look at photos of my Mom and Dad and say, “Wow, Grandpa was good looking and look how beautiful Grandma was!”    What memories will you have after you’ve dropped your phone in water or your computer gets a virus and erases all your images that you never backed up?  Or never even captured that memory because you were waiting for the perfect moment?  

Capture your moments in time, print your photos of your children, your family, your parents, your dog! Place them in a photo book or an album or folio box.   It doesn’t cost more than a Latte at Starbucks to have those prints made!  Have a professional portrait done that your family will treasure forever and preserve those memories.  

Capture a moment in time!

Giving Back https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2014/3/giving-back I'm extremely blessed... I live comfortably, have two beautiful children (young adults), family that I love, my health and ability to do all the things I love to do.  One of my passions is photography.  My intent was never to be rich through my photography business.  Years back when my passion began, my intent was not even to go into business.  This small little business of mine will not support me or my family as of yet.  With one child in college and another on his way soon, a mortgage, cars, phones... it's not likely I can quit my day job.  I'm fortunate that I also enjoy my day job too.  Another blessing.  Being fortunate as I am, I feel the need to give back to my community and I can do that through my photography.  I am a member of the Magic Hour Foundation which provides portrait session to cancer survivors and patients.  I've taken photos for different fundraisers in the past couple of years and today I get to take photos for Another Doggone Wine Tasting.  These proceeds will benefit a local animal shelter.  In a way it is self-serving, it gets my name out there and I get to make new friends.  But it always requires time, the time to attend the event and then hours of editing hundreds of photos.    It requires hundreds of dollars of equipment which eventually begin to break down.   I've worked hard at learning my craft, I didn't just pick up a camera and start taking photos.  I've spent numerous days and weeks attending classes and sessions and I truly love what I do.  I am truly thrilled to be able to give back to my community...

Beautiful Soul Project Collage https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2013/6/beautiful-soul-project-collage "You can look into the mirror and see flaws...but someone else can look at you and only see BEAUTY"

WELCOME to my Beautiful Soul Project!!

Over the past two months I've worked on this project. It was a very rewarding experience to me and I want to thank all the women and girls that participated. When I started, my intent was just to photograph women and teens without makeup to show them they are beautiful. What developed was the opportunity to make new friends, renew old friendships, and build deeper bonds with existing friends. The project consumed a lot of my time... time that could have been spent trying to get this photography business off and running , but to me it was so much more rewarding. I feel like I accomplished what I set out to do but gained so much more in learning about all the remarkable women and girls. I haven't photographed all that volunteered and hope to continue. A very special thanks to all of you that participated and putting up with me for the past month and especially for sharing your stories. I don't know if my project will get the recognition it deserves, but you all deserve the recognition for forging ahead and being brave enough to be photographed without any makeup!! I love you all and am so appreciative!! Ladies and girls, you rock!! and you all are Beautiful!! 

 

 

My first images are of Sandy and her two daughters, Madison and Jillian.  I asked Sandy to be one of my participants.  She is naturally beautiful inside and out.  Madison, her older daughter, another natural beauty is at the end of her sophomore year and a fierce soccer player.  Sweet Jillian, such a cutie, about to ascend upon the teens and still looking like a young girl as she should.  I enjoyed photographing this lovely Mom and her two beautiful daughters.  Stayed tuned for some more Beautiful Soul Images in the next few weeks.

WELCOME to my Beautiful Soul Project!!

What if we all forgot the make-up for a day and really thought about what makes us beautiful.  Difficult to imagine... walking out the door without makeup and just being ourselves.   I asked for volunteers to join me in my Beautiful Soul project and I was surprised by the positive response I received from several women that I knew and some I didn't know previously.  I processed the images as black and white for a more natural effect.      

 

My first images are of Sandy and her two daughters, Madison and Jillian.  I asked Sandy to be one of my participants.  She is naturally beautiful inside and out.  Madison, her older daughter, another natural beauty is at the end of her sophomore year and a fierce soccer player.  Sweet Jillian, such a cutie, about to ascend upon the teens and still looking like a young girl as she should.  I enjoyed photographing this lovely Mom and her two beautiful daughters.  Stayed tuned for some more Beautiful Soul Images in the next few weeks.

Beautiful Soul Project VI Friends Forever https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2013/5/beautiful-soul-project-iv Asbury Park and the NJ shore and best friends forever.  That was the setting for my next group of women photographed for my Beautiful Soul Project.  I've known Linda and Pam for many years and Denise just a few. Two of them were my best friends' younger sisters and I consider them my sisters too! I was thrilled they agreed to participate in my project.  However, this story is about them.  They have been friends since 8th grade and have shared many years of good times and hard times, lots of laughs and tears, lots of great memories.     Each of them have a story or two to tell about life experiences.  They'll be friends forever and I look forward to being friends with them as well.  They are beautiful, inside and out, make-up or no make-up and it was wonderful photographing my "sisters" that I have known for so many years.   I  am so appreciative that they volunteered and dared to bare their beautiful faces for my project.  

These photos were taken on the famous Asbury Park Boardwalk.

Mother's Day https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2013/5/beautiful-soul-project-me Mother's Day was an awesome day for me.  I got to spend it with my two young adults, Nic and Annalise and my favorite pup.  The plan was to go for a hike.  Of course, my camera and equipment was coming too.  My thought was to take a beautiful family photo using my tripod and my timer on my camera.  Well, easier said than done.  Why is it that everyone else's children enjoy taking photos with their family, but to get my two to take a photo with me is almost not worth the effort.  What follows in photos are my attempts at our family photo and although they aren't the most perfect photos, they mean the world to me.  They are funny and comical and oh so my family.   We are a forever family.  Both my children were adopted from Russia when they were infants.  They were each born in different cities and have turned out to be so amazing and wonderful.  I always say that they were my babies, I just had to go and find them.  I was determined to find them and I did.   Happy Mother's Day everyone!!

Beautiful Soul III https://www.dmirandaphotography.com/blog/2013/5/beautiful-soul-iii I have to admit, I'm doing my favorite thing on Mother's Day morning.  Editing photos and updating my blog.  Yesterday I met two women who really touched my heart. Although it was raining theses two friends, Kristine and Susan brightened the day.   This project has enlightened me and introduced me to some really amazing women.  This is something I never expected and today I photographed Susan and Kristine.  Kristine volunteered to be photographed with her daughter.  Kristine is another amazing woman, very involved in community service and philanthropy.  She called me this week to say, I have a someone who you really need to photograph and introduced me to Susan.  Susan's story to me is so inspiring.  A story of how a Mom's love shows no boundaries.  Susan lost her son, David to cancer two years ago.  But it's not her sadness that she wants everyone to know about, it's all about David's story.  In his honor and memory she keeps her head shaved and wears crane earrings.  David loved cranes.  But the absolute ultimate show of love for her son is on the back of her head; she has the coordinates of where he was buried out at sea tattooed on the back of her scalp.  It's beautiful, and I'll never forget the day I was lucky enough to photography this woman.     I absolutely love this project... Thank you Kristine and Susan for the opportunity to tell your stories.
