Melissa was recently named a Silver Medalist during Professional Photographers of America 2014 International Photographic Competition. Melissa’s work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee, February 1-3, 2015. This International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and several photographic associations.
A panel of 45 eminent jurors form across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,000 total submitted entries. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 1,800 images were selected for the General Collection and 918 (roughly 18%) were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection—the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will be published in the much-anticipated “Loan Collection” book and over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.
The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions, and other photography events. Miroslavich was named a Silver Medalist, meaning that one of her four merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2014, she was named one of only 104 Silver Medalists.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international non-profit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA has roots that date back to 1869. It assists more than 27,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.

Kaitlin's portrait session was a special one not only because she's a lovely young woman but because Kaitlin's Mom, Kyla, is Melissa's dear friend from college. We had a great time photographing Kaitlin indoors and out--she was so sweet and easy to work with and afterwards Melissa and Kyla got a chance to catch up with one another. We're so glad they made the trip from Rochester! It was a wonderful day all the way around.

We've been creating portraits for this cute family for, well, forever and it's been so much fun to see the kids grow and change. Even their sweet dog Coltrane got in on the fun! In this session we did both colorful outdoor images and lovely indoor images. They have a beautiful stone fireplace and the colors in the indoor portraits coordinated with their room perfectly. The kids' Mom, Jana, loved the portrait above her fireplace and was nice enough to send us a snapshot of it in its new "home"and we think the final result is perfect!

You may remember lovely Emily when she was here (as our Senior Rep for Hill Murray) in the Spring: http://miroslavichphotography.blogspot.com/2014/05/emily-class-of-2015.html
Well, she came back for her "real" session and we captured even more beautiful images. Even her darling dog Lula got to be part of the portraits. Obviously being photogenic runs in the family!
P.S. If you are currently a junior (graduating in 2016) and would be interested in applying for our Senior Rep program please give us a call.

What are little boys made of? These three adorable gentlemen would be made of fun and sweetness and laughter. We've been capturing images of these three charmers since they were babies. They are so cute together and yet each has their own distinct personality (check out "fierce" Ben in the image above). : ) We had a great summer session with this cute family!

We've had such fun photographing pets and owners for the Pet Feature in the Stone Mill Farms/Dancing Waters Connector Magazine! Recently we met cute and spunky Duke, a 12-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, his equally spunky and handsome buddy Mason and Mason's lovely Mom Angie. We had such fun playing with and photographing them! Mason was pretty excited to discover he got to pick out a sticker at the end of the session. We bet he's going to be even more excited this Fall when a new baby joins this cute family!
