I’m Miranda Cunningham, the girl behind the camera at IP. Out in the real world, you might recognize me as the slightly awkward 30-something in a pair of Converse and a mom bun trying to wrangle two kids, their sports gear and a Starbucks, and mostly just trying to survive the day. I'm a wife, mom, volunteer firefighter, Disney enthusiast, and bookworm who loves all the artsy things. Mostly though, I'm just a kid a heart that never stopped believing in fairytales and magic.

Creativity is as necessary to me as breathing. While photographer was never really on my list of career choices growing up, I always knew I would do something in the artistic field. Honestly, I thought I would end up as a writer, but God kept shoving a camera in my hand. Over the past 16 years in this job, He’s blessed me with some amazing clients and opportunities that will stick with me for the rest of my life. Not only has my creativity been able to flourish, but it’s also been able to bring joy to others. That’s what I want you to feel when you look at the images I create for you. Even if the moment wasn’t perfect, I hope it feels that way when you look back at it in print.

My photography style is timeless, yet magical. You’ll notice I’m fairly minimalistic when it comes to props and backdrops. I love monochromatic setups, shadows, and deep color tones. I prefer a clean look to my work, but also love to be creative after the session. Editing is my photography superpower, and I love to push the limits! Not every image is perfect straight out of the camera (kids are rarely all smiling at the same time in a family shot), and I thrive on the challenge of creating magic when others would give up. That's the difference, you see.

The ability to see things not just as they are, but as they could be, is a trait that has defined both me and my work from the very beginning. That’s why it’s called Imagination Photography. Come see it for yourself.

“And she saw the world not always as it was, but as perhaps it could be, with just a little bit of magic.”
