About Me

Chris Miranda

I want to personally take the time to thank you all so much for visiting my site.

Photography is one of the biggest passions in my life. The ability to capture the pure beauty of the world around me through the lens of my camera gives me chills. Whether it's shooting tens of thousands of participants in a large race in the heart of Chicago. Or the magical scene of a snow covered landscape on a random winter day. Or capturing a young family with their kids all smiling and enjoying each other's company. Or even my dog lounging around on the small sun filled spot on my hardwood floors. The possibilities and opportunities are endless, and there's not a  single thing I would turn down shooting.

I have taken my time getting my business to the point it is today. Making sure to turn every opportunity into a learning experience. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with amazing families, the funniest of little kids, and beautiful babies. I have also been able to work with great companies and have had the chance to shoot one of the largest races in all of Chicago... TWICE! 

When I'm not working, I'm most likely spending time with my beautiful daughter Claire who was born in the summer of 2015. I also tend to surround myself with many of my other passions, including, but not limited to, cheering on all of my Chicago sports teams, running and spending time at the gym, and indulging in some of the finest craft beers known to mankind. I often seek adventure and am always looking for something new to try.

When I think of Miranda photography, one word always comes to mind... Passion.  He truly puts every ounce of energy he has into each shot.  As a determined entrepreneur myself, it only pushes me to bring my best when I see Chris at work.
These photos are nothing short of spectacular and just prove my point even more.  Through the process, we gave him our meals and he was able to transform them into works of art.  Everything from the lighting, props, and meal placement was thought out.  I cannot thank Miranda Photography for bringing our meals to life.

As a small business, Salon Four 14 is always thinking of innovative ways on how to promote our services and products. Chris of Miranda Photography was so helpful in the launch of our new service, Supersilk. We enlisted Miranda Photography to capture the step-by-step process by camera so we could educate our salon guests. Not only were Chris’ images beautiful and spot-on, his professional manner and attentiveness to this project exceeded all of our expectations. Chris gracefully took direction, provided suggestions, and took initiative to follow up with us as he created a slide show video (an extra bonus!). Salon Four 14 absolutely recommends Miranda Photography to any business seeking a photographer and to the general public. Thanks so much Miranda Photography!

I have known Chris now for over 2 years and he has shot my engagement photos, wedding photos, family pictures, maternity pictures, and my son's baptism. With each session the pictures get better and better as he learns my families personalities. He is very accommodating and takes into account what I am looking for in the shoot. I look forward to the many more photo shoot we will have in the future!!
