Too big, and it dominates the room, too small, and it looks awkward. This is why before you come in to order, we will use images from your home to get a scale for the correct sizing and format to match your existing decor. 

When you come in for your ordering appointment, we take the time to show you the images using specialized software that allows us to to quickly show different sizing options, groupings, and layouts in your space. We can easily compare different images with framing and formats such as canvas and framed or metal prints.

Plus, another benefit is the ability to order special collection pricing that we offer on the day of your ordering appointment. You can get exactly what you need, and save significantly on the extras that you want!

Albums by Kiranphotography https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2017/7/albums-by-kiranphotography One of the best things about being a full service studio is the reveal of my clients' final printed art work. I love how these tanglible pieces create a sense of permanence and help shape identity. They're elegant, meaningful, narrative, and aesthetic and they immediately become a treasured part of the family because they say "This is Us". In an age where these self-assertions are so transient spending 20 minutes on a social media feed before being buried and forgotten, printed photographs find their place in our homes and office, to serve as reminders of God's blessings and motivators for why we do what we do and the value of the whom, which we do it all for. 

I was so excited to deliver a stunning Kiranphotography album to Mindee and Davy recently, we had dinner together and just got to view their final album and relive some of their special day. They admitted that after their wedding life had gotten so hectic, so quickly, that they hadn't even thought back on it in the months since, and it was a great way to relive, revisit, and savour those precious feelings. A 50th birthday party, a senior year in high school, a wedding day, all go by so quickly; and that's why it's so important to invest in a professional photographer to capture those feelings and experiences. That is the power of printed photography, it's capable of transporting us back to re-feel those moments that mean the most to us as everyday life marches on. 

In an era where so many photographers just shoot a barrage of pictures, it's great to be able to create meaningful, tangible artwork for my clients such as these signature Albums. They're perfect for a portrait session or special event, and after the food's been eaten, the music played, and the guests have all gone home, you'll have these moments of your life to re-live, and I'm blessed to be a part of telling that story.

India Summer 2016 https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2016/8/india2016 In June of 2016, I was blessed to return to India for the first time since 1998 when I went with my father and brother. it was the last trip we were ever to take with my father, and sadly I didn't come back with very many photos (the folly of youth). 

 

My father's house in Goa. 1998

Well, I did my best to remedy that this time around, and hopefully my father and brother were with my in spirit. 

It was especially meaningful to be in my father's house on father's day.

 

The Victoria Train Station in Mumbai. 

Flora fountain, great shopping around here in the area called Colaba. 

This was some guerilla style photography. These guys were out doing tourist pictures, and turning around prints on the spot with printers in their satchels! That's some hustle...  

Didn't have long in Mumbai before I headed to New Delhi for the first leg of the trip. I saw some of the sights including Qutub Minar. But my favorite was shopping in the market near Janpath. Qutub minar (pictured below) in case you didn't know is allegedly the tallest monolithic brick structure in the world.  

Next on the agenda was Humayun's Tomb, an islamic tomb close second in grandeur to the Taj Mahal. 

  

Then to the India Gate.  

Those with no fear of hepatitis can get a tattoo from some shady looking dudes in the park. 

The Indian houses of parliament were next for a quick drive by sight. 

The next day I made the drive to Agra (about 4 hours by car.  

And we made it just in time to drive by the red fort and catch the Taj Mahal at sunset. Though we had to run to get a ticket in time.  

The next morning, I was up at the crack of dawn to catch sunrise at the Taj Mahal.  

 

In case you've ever wondered what it looks like behind the Taj Mahal. 

My classic travel picture tradition: 

The view from my hotel window. 

Then it was time for the 2nd leg of the trip, Varanasi. This place was crazy hot, so I didn't venture out as much as I would have liked, but I did get to see the ghats along the river ganges, witness a funeral, and the customary bathing.  

Then, for the final leg of the country tour, I went to my father's place of birth, Goa. Now, some people wonder why my last name ends in an s and not a z, well the short answer is that Goa is a Portuguese colony, so the influence is very visible there.

Goa has changed quite a bit in the last 20 years, and sadly not much for the beter. Tucked behind this mediocre restaurant is my father's family house. 

  

A wedding portrait of my paternal grand parents. 

My Aunt, Meena.  

A prophetic kodak shop. 

My Aunt's husband Mohan. 

All beaches pretty much look the same to me. But here's Calangute beach in Goa. Usually warm waters, but this was during the monsoon season, so it was a bit unseasonable.

My cousin's husband Allan took me to see Cliffs near Fort Aguada in Goa, a great landscape photo spot.  

The best place I found for eating in Goa.

  

Back to Bombay - Part II

India Summer 2016 part II https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2016/8/india-summer-2016-part-ii After Goa, I flew back to Mumbai to spend the last week of the trip with my cousin and her family who now live in my father's flat. 

This is the view from my father's flat. 

Checked out the famous fashion street shopping spot. 

St. Mary's school where my father taught Science in his 20's and 30's.

Shopping in markets is always my favourite travel activity, and Crawford market was the best. 

My cousin in her school attire.

Classic Byculla moment here:

My beloved family in India. Charmain, Anaia, and Allan.

Vermont https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2016/7/vermont On October 13, 2015, I was blessed to be able to check a bucket list item off and Visit Vermont at the height of the Fall foliage

Didn't take long after landing to start seeing the incredible beauty in New Hampshire as I prepared to head north. 

One of my first stops was the Tilt'n Diner. I love the Americana vibe of the north east and little coffee shop diners like this! Great food too!

The Great Quechee Gorge 

I was up beore the sun to capture images at Killington Falls

      

In Montpelier, I was blessed to stay at Betsy's B&B a recommendation from my friend Lindsay. It did not disappoint, exactly the vibe, ambiance, and feel I was looking for. A quaint, traditional b&B with good food and a vintage feel. 

  

One of the greatest things about traveling is the people you meet. I came across these nice folks in the field where I was shooting the astral photography above, then randomly happened upon them again the next day in front of the state Capital!  

Some delicious craftings to be had at Cold Hollow Cider Mill, including the ever elusive rose-flavoured jam.      

Smugglers notch in October is probably one of, if not my favorite place in the world. Beautifully gloomy, overcast, and cold. Perfect hot cider weather.

Brianna's Saree Ceremony https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2016/6/briannas-saree-ceremony I was very blessed to meet Bobby and Brintha and be able to create images telling the story of their daughter's saree ceremony at their home in Frisco last month. It was a beautiful evening of worship and celebration of the life of Brianna and her potential as a believer in Christ! 


I worked with the family to create a beautiful KP Signature Album featuring the images from the event and telling the story of this moment in the life of the family.

Scary to think how many classes I've taught that have graduated, it seems like just yesterday he was heading into 8th grade! Now he's getting ready to head to college! This guy has a great heart and is a super hard worker. 

 

We even got a cameo from a roving visitor during our session!

The Contemporary Chorale: Magic to Do Spring Performance https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2014/6/CCSpring2014 I was honored once again to be able to capture the magic of the Contemporary Chorale, the Richardson based performance group that rehearses year round for its bi-annual shows. This was the first time I was able to work with them in the Eismann Center and see them perform with a full band.

This year's theme was "Magic to Do" and they performed pieces that focused on the magic inherent in the everyday.

Ashley's Bridal Portraits https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2014/3/SeymourBridals

Ashley and I go way back to the early club days at NTPC, and it was such an honor when she asked me to create bridal portraits for her. Ashley said she wanted something "different" for her portraits, and so the challenge was set to create blue hour and night-time bridal images. Of course, Ashley, a professional model turned AirForce mechanic and crew chief, was drop dead stunning in her dress, and we created some beautiful, dramatic, and "different" images.

Contemporary Chorale Fall Performance https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2014/1/CCFall2013 The Contemporary Chorale, a entertainment group based in Garland, rehearses and prepares yearround, but only performs publicly twice per year, so you know when they're performing it's going to be amazing. This December's concert did not disappoint! I created images for their fall performance last year, and I was very blessed to be hired back again to capture images of their final of 2 performances on December 14th at St. Barnabas Presbyterian Church in Richardson.

Deval's 40th James Bond Party https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/12/Deval40 Imagine how excited I was to get the call to photograph a James Bond themed birthday party being the lifelong Bondfan that I am. Kajal & Deval, for whom I'd photographed a family portrait session earlier in the year, threw an amazing party at Paradise cove with all the glamour of the Casino Royale. There were martinis (shaken, not stirred of course), roulette tables, Bond memorabilia, ball gowns, tuxedos, and an awesome Indian feast.  There was even a red-carpet style photobooth provided by KiranPhotography to create commemorative custom designed images.

Stafford Family Portraits https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/12/stafford2013

 

Definitely one of the more unique spots I've photographed a family in, when Elizabeth and I were planning the session, she said, I'd love to do it in a hardware store, that's my dad's happy place. And sure enough, I got in touch with the fine folks at ACE Hardware in McKinney and they let us come in and do our session there!  

I knew Elizabeth from my wonderful church, but it was the first time meeting her parents who were in town from Florida. I loved Charlotte (Mom's) sense of humour and Dave (Dad's) quiet easy going nature. They were a blast to work with: Charlotte and I commiserated over the woes of the public school teacher. 

Normally I'd be kind of stressed out by random people walking around in my background or dogs wandering through the shot, but in tihs case I kinda felt like it was perfect!

Definitely a daddy's girl. 

A coffee break in the middle of our session? Why not!?

Bhenat Art Piece selected for Exhibition https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/11/Exhibition13  

     

Work by Kiran Fernandes, a McKinney-based photographer, has been selected to be featured in Frisco City Hall. The Photo titled “Bhenat” (Offering) has been selected to grace the main entryway to City Hall and the Public Library for the coming year.  

 

"The picture represents the rich tapestry of diversity that is characteristic of one of the fastest growing cities in the Nation," said Fernandes.

 

The photographic print on fine art canvas was described by the Arts board as "Visually exciting and inspiring.”

 

The image was created in March 2013 at a housewarming ceremony for the wedding of an Indian family in Plano, TX.

 

Fernandes, who owns KiranPhotography, specializes in weddings, portraits and special events.

 

This past year Fernandes retired from a full time position teaching at a public middle school to pursue a new career path as a full time photographer.

 

"I feel very blessed to have been given the opportunity to pursue what I feel truly called to do,” he said. “It has given me a renewed sense of purpose and I feel great to be able to express myself through my art.”

 

The work is sponsored by the Frisco Public Art Program, and will be on display at the George Purefoy Municipal Complex from November 2013 to August 2014.

Legacy Christian Academy 15th Anniversary Banquet https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/11/lca15 On October 26, Legacy Christian Academy in Frisco Texas along with over 800 of its community and family celebrated it's 15th Anniversary with a banquet held at the Marriott at Legacy Town Center in Plano. It was amazing to hear the story of how the Lord has blessed the work of this school in creating young Christians prepared to be leaders in our society!  The duck hunt them of the decor and dress of many guests payed tribute to the keynote speaker Jase Robertson, star of A&E's hit series Duck Dynasty.

Perfect weather on a most beatific Fall day for Allison & Ron's Wedding in McKinney. I met Allison through Gabi who is a former student of mine, and was blessed to be able to capture her big day.

Loved seeing how into cheering on his girls this dad got! 

 

When this girl performs, it's cool to see how it captivates people. She's pretty incredible.

Pretty sure this is my favorite shot of the night: 

Enjoyed hearing some super talented artists, especially Lauren R. & Ian A - even saw one of my former students, Aly M.!

The Long & Short of It... Long Family Portraits https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/10/LongFamily2013 Saturday morning I got to spend a frosty early morning time with the Long family in Allen.  Dad, Jason, is very involved at my church, and I was super honored to have been asked to create images to document this time in the young family's life! I enjoyed seeing the radiant love this family shares, and I know that it's because Jason's prioritized making God the center of his life and marriage. 

Say Cheese! Micah loved his cheese sticks! 

 

He and dad even got in some exercise with an early morning run!

Within Reach https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/10/within-reach Recently I read a book called The Bronze Bow, and watched a miniseries dramatising The Bible, and I was struck by the thought of how wild it is that at one point in history, it was actually possible to just walk up and physically touch God...  or see Him walking down the street... or go to the market to hear him teach.  It's kind of hard to fathom (in somewhat the same way as we tend mentally to picture the 18th century in black and white) because we're so used to thinking of God, experiencing God, and encountering God in such abstract terms.

And I bet it never occurred to most of the people in His proximity that if they just touched Him, they would be healed, if they just knew Him, their very lives would be transformed for the better. They never grasped the magnitude of what they were in the midst of - the magnitude of what he was destined to do on the cross. That billions people for the rest of the freakin' HISTORY of the earth would yearn for the ability to have what was within 2 yards of their grasp. To be able to look into the face, the eyes of God... the creator of everything. 

Then I realized, it's not so different now, sure we can't physically touch God, but He's closer now on this side of the cross than he was then. To hear Him these days, you most likely have to hear His worlds through fully human intermediaries rather than direct from the source, but it's no more difficult to listen to Him. 

Tangential thought: Or CAN'T we physically touch God? All good and perfect things come from Him, so when a couple shares their first kiss as husband and wife, when a newborn cries out for the first time, when it snows and school gets cancelled, are those not all manifestations of God? Is God not omnipresent in them all? All we have to do is ask and accept Christ's presence in our lives, and it's as if we're the beggar who decides that in fact, yes he IS tired of being lame, and gets up and walks, even dances in the light of new life. 

But wouldn't people have reacted differently to Christ walking down the street if they'd have known he was God - and that following his way no matter the cost would ensure you're set for Eternity? What lengths would they have gone to, to be in His presence? What excuse would have been good enough to justify NOT reaching out for Him? What would have been MORE of a priority? How many would have eagerly jumped in to carry that cross even two steps? What lengths do we fail to go to  in our own lives because we don't realize the magnitude of God and his presence in our lives? 

But yeah, we as humans haven't changed that much. We often don't realize the magnitude of the God who is in our very midst. Instead of getting up from our fishing nets, and getting in earshot of Christ, we sit at our coffee shops, behind our computers, at our various diversions - and we miss the opportunity. Sometimes however, we forget to recognize God in the mundane, in the fact that He is within us and all around us.  I mean I guess maybe we have a tendency to be unaware of the magnitude of God- or more likely I'm sure there's an extent to which we're by nature incapable of grasping that - but you can't have read this far in my blog post and be unaware anymore- so where do you go from here? 

I sure hope you know God, because He's pretty awesome, and He knows you.  He's no less alive now than 3000 years ago, and He's within reach.

Davis Family Portraits https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/10/davis-family-portraits

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing my dear friend Shirley and her little ones Michael and Joanna. in McKinney. I've known Shirley for about 4 years now working varsity football games selling tickets for FISD. It was wonderful to see the love she has for her kiddos discovering a new and lovely new facet of her.

The Best Summer Ever. https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/9/the-best-summer-ever So I think I can officially call it: for me, this was the best summer of my life thus far. It started off with an awesome experience getting to photograph for Willie Nelson & Family. 

I then got to travel to Uganda to be a part of my church's mission team and help people find and follow Jesus Christ. 

Upon returning, I decided to make a major life change, which I'll discuss in a future post, and mentally, spiritually, emotionally, it put me in a completely different realm of happy. 

I think in large part this summer rocked so hard out of comparison. It's kind of strikingly astounding where my life is in relation to where it was a year ago during what was probably the worst summer of my life. 

 

Heck I even got to ride in a hot air balloon! 

The last week of the season I got to see Mumford and Sons in Concert with my buddy Josh, and now I have sweater weather, hot chocolate, and fireplace to look forward to... my favorite time of year! 

Life is good. God is good. Kiranphotography is good.

Hot Air Balloon Ride https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/9/balloon-ride A couple years ago at the Plano Balloon festival I met Loren and Luc Goethals, a couple who runs a hot air balloon ride. They'd offered to take me on a ride and expressed interest in me doing some photography for them. We kept in touch and tried to arrange flights over the past couple years, but no luck. 

Then a couple months ago in a conversation with my friend Brittney, she said one of her "life goals" was to go up in a hot air balloon ride. Well, I knew I had to make that happen.  With great luck, Loren messaged me and said they had a flight open on Sunday. As lucky also had it, it was Brittney's birthday weekend!

Well, it was an early morning getting up at 5:30 to pick her up at 6:15 to be on site at 6:30. My excuse to get her there for the big surprise was that we were going to do a sunrise photoshoot, not entirely false, I just left out the fact that it'd be at 3000 feet of altitude. 

Everything went off with a hitch; her face when she found out was priceless - I think she was in shock. 

We arrived to an empty field in McKinney and got to setting up!

Entire Air balloon fits in this little bag. 

Perfect 72 degrees with no wind for our lift off. 

Had to make the portrait session happen: 

And away we went! 

Two other pilots flew alongside us. 

Upon landing, we were treated to snacks and mimosas by Loren & Luc to celebrate a great flight! They were so kind and took such great care of us!

So happy to have been blessed to bless my friend!

Willie Nelson https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/9/willie-nelson

 

As a professional photographer, I've gotten some really awesome access by God's providence and the blessing of friends like Janis Tillerson. 

This was one of those epic experiences: getting to cover the Willie Nelson and Family benefit concert for West Texas on April 28th at the Backyard in Bee Cave Texas (see my images of the damage caused by the Fertilizer explosion and read the blog post). Goes to show the character of this living legend that while many people were looking the other way, Willie dove right in to do something meaningful and useful for the first responders and the families affected. 

So first the bragging, here I am hanging out on the tour bus with Janis and Billy (Willie's drummer). 

Backstage in the VIP area.

Breckenridge Colorado https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/9/breckenridge-colorado Was blessed by my good friend Christian to be able to sneak away for a short holiday this summer to Breckenridge Colorado. While 106 degrees scorched the McKinney Texas landscape, you can bet I was certainly glad to wake up to 50 and the smell of pine in the clean mountain air. It was a wonderfully restful and thoroughly enjoyable time spent with Christian and his friends Keith and Dan. After a summer of straight work and the emotional intensity of missionary work in Uganda, it was such a huge blessing to be able to decompress in luxury and get a little perspective.

This was the view from our Condo patio: Riding the Gondolas up to the top of Peak 8

Grocery Shopping:

The photographer got to get out and play: 

After a nice morning's activities, the rain came in daily almost like clockwork at mid -afternoon. Loved sitting by the condo windows listening to the rain and enjoying the concomitant temperature dip. 

 

Love how this looks like we're a rock band or something...

NTPC Off Camera Flash https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/9/ntpc-off-camera-flash Ok so a large number of these are not in fact OCF. (I'm such a rebel - shooting natural light at a flash workshop).

Rather, they manifest my love for prime lenses and natural light, but it was just too much to pass up photographing the lovely Ms. Sharri a friend whom I met at church and recruited to model... for obvious reasons.

Uganda https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/8/uganda Africa arrests you.

 

It stops you in whatever track of life you're in, spins you around a bit, and resets your perspective. From the ubiquitous red dirt, to the abyssal, high-contrast, searching eyes of the African people, to the delicious meat on a stick from a roadside grill, everthing about it for the first time traveler takes you out of what you know. 

 

I was blessed to be a part of a mission team from Preston Trail Community Church in mid June to journey to Uganda in Africa to serve in several ministries. For the first part of the 11 days, we served in Children's ministries one titled Homecoming Foodstep serving the children of Kampiringisa (a children's remand center) and another visiting Serving His Children, a ministry founded by an American Renee Bach, which helps malnourished children back to health and educates their families about proper nutrition. This was my first time visiting, and I was graciously blessed by my church, the Bingham family, Mark & Sharon Fowler, Michelle Kiehn, My God-mother and Grand Uncle, Pat & Deb Crane, Phil Crane, Jeff & Jody Crane, Eileen Ebert-Aguilar, my teaching friends: Lannis Nelson, The McFarland family, and my beloved friends Meredith Douglas, Brittney Caswell, Mary Duran, Lauren Liles, Gwen Guess, and many others in prayer and support with the ability to follow God's lead on this. 

This is my favorite image from the trip:

The simple joy as a little one plays with a paper airplane on a sunny day at HomeComing in Uganda June 2013. 

This is my second favorite image: 

Pastor John, attendee at the Hessed pastor's conference. 

 

Coming back from Africa is difficult to do without questioning the mass of posessions one returns to and feeling the weight of the superfluity.  Nevertheless, it was a huge blessing to see the fruits of the church's continued ministry there, to see smiles on the faces of the children at the homecoming, shoes on their feet, and toys in their hands. 

At homecoming, I met a young man who sat with me and recounted from memory the stories of Genesis through Exodus. I spent close to 2 hours sitting with him and listening to him; it was a really special moment and I won't forget him as long as I live. 

 

I also met a young pastor named John who works with the children at Homecoming.  

He contacted me via email after I returned and told me that he and his wife have been praying for me; for my life and for my new business adventure. He told me that he saw in me the spirit of Gideon which meant that he saw me as a mighty man of valor who, despite small beginnings, has a path to greatness ahead of me. I hope that my images of Africa can serve as a small stepping stone on that path and bring glory to Him who both made it possible for me to go and created all the blessings I encountered.

Lebh Shomea https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/7/lebh-shomea Lebh Shomea is a Catholic eremitical (has to do with isolation and hermitage) retreat campus located in Sarita, Texas about an hour from Corpus Christi. I had the opportunity to go and visit my mother who is now employed there in her retirement from being a fulltime school librarian. The "big house" as it's called is a beautiful building with some amazing surrounding landscape which include prayer walks and prayer spots. The community values silence and people don't even speak during communal meals, which is a little weird at first, but then becomes quite nice after a time as you have more time to contemplate and not have to feel pressured to concoct conversational topics or be especialy sociable. It's a great place to connect with God in a context of some beautiful scenery which I've tried to capture and share with my images from the trip I took during Spring Break. Personal projects have certainly been on the back burner for the past few months, but I'm really happy  to see this one finished! Enjoy!

One of my mom's primary duties is working in the book bindery. She uses an oldtime book press to create the bindings. 


OH my how I would die to do a bridal session in this mansion!  My favorite room: A great chair for reading some Yeats and watching the wind blow the trees. 

Of course, God is everywhere, but if you want to get away from the World to reconnect with Him, this is a great place to do it.  Early morning perambulations: 

I was blessed to get a personal tour of the chapel of the little children from Father Francis Kelly. 

Worth getting up super early to catch the sunrise at the coast a few miles down the road? I think so!  The Doves: 

A REALLY tough shot to get! 

 

And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall

search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

Jim & Christina's Engagement https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/6/jim-christinas-engagement Had a wonderful toasty warm time in Richardson with a beautiful couple Jim & Christina whom I was blessed to meet through my church. 

 

I finally asked you to dance
On the last slow song
Beneath that moon that was really a disco ball
I can still feel my head on your shoulder
And hoping that song would never be over

 

I brushed your curls back so I could see your eyes

And the way you moved me was like you were reading my mind
I can still feel you lean into kiss me
I can't help but wonder if you ever miss me

The Westland https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/5/the-wasteland  

 I. The Burial of the Dead

  April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
[...]
What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water.
[...]

Uganda https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/4/uganda  

Uganda  Compassion Team /June 2013

Preston Trail Community Church

10501 Main Street, Frisco, TX 75035

 

Dear Family and Friends;

I am beyond excited to tell you that I will be joining a team from my church, Preston Trail Community Church, to Uganda in East Africa for a short term mission trip.  Our team will depart Dallas on June 17th, returning home on June 28, 2013, and in one capacity I will be using my gifts as a photographer to tell the stories of 1. the trip, 2. the people we meet in Uganda, and 3. the amazing love of God and the transforming power of Christ. I will also be helping to teach at a ministry conference on the topic of spiritual gifts. As you may know, I have traveled to developing nations before, specifically India, but I have never done anything like this before, so I am eager to see how Christ transforms and shapes my life through this experience, and I look forward to sharing the experience with you through my art and story.

During our first week, we will work with our partners from Food Step / Homecoming ministries, both run by an amazing Belgian couple (Nathalie & Werner) who live in Uganda fulltime. The Food Step ministry works with children living in a state-run rehabilitation center for youth near Kampiringisa, just outside Kampala the capital of Uganda.  Most of the children in this center are picked up off the streets because their parents either abandoned them or sent them out to beg for money.  The Homecoming is a relatively new ministry they launched to offer some of these children with little to no hope of getting out of the state run facility before turning 18, a home where they will receive a warm bed, three meals per day, healthcare, an education, and most importantly love and spiritual guidance from Nathalie & Werner. Currently, they have custody of 50+ children with hopes of adding 40-50 more this year.

The following week we will be working with another one our partners, Hesed International to train area pastors, their wives and lay leaders within their churches equipping them to better lead their churches.

While our team will make the actual journey, we do need help and there are a couple of ways you can get involved to support our mission. As we prepare and while we are gone, would you consider praying for us and for those we will meet?  You can also follow us on Facebook on the Uganda Ministry at Preston Trail page

Each team member is required to raise financial support to cover airfare, meals, and accommodations. In order to make this trip possible I will need to raise an additional $3,200.  Would you prayerfully consider providing financial support to our team?  If you feel led to involved in supporting me financially, please make your check payable to Preston Trail Community Church and mail it to the address above.  Please reference “Uganda” in the memo section of your check.  All donations are tax deductible, and a receipt will be provided. You can also easily contribute online at http://tinyurl.com/chgegk8 This link will have you create an account with a secure user name and password, also allowing them to mail you a tax credit receipt.

Thank you in advance for your consideration, and soon I look forward to sharing how God will change the lives of everyone involved with this trip, both here and there! 


Blessed to bless,

Kiran Fernandes

Katie & Chris's Engagement Portriats https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/4/katie-chriss-engagement-portriats How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

She makes looking good look easy! 

You were never lovelier, 
You were never so fair, 
Dreams were never lovelier, 

Pardon me if I stare. 

Down the sky the moonbeams fly to light your face; 
I can only say they chose the proper place. 
You were never lovelier, 
And to coin a new phrase; 
I was never luckier in my palmiest days. 
Make a note, and you can quote me, 
Honor bright, 
You were never lovelier than you are tonight.

~Fred Astaire

Meredith & Jared Family Portraits https://www.kiranphotography.com/blog/2013/4/meredith-jared-family-portraits A dear friend of mine from Preston Trail Community Church hired me to do some portraits of her and her son earlier this Spring, I love how they came out! 

 

Although you see the world different than me
Sometimes I can touch upon the wonders that you see
All the new colors and pictures you've designed
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

You don't need direction, you know which way to go
And I don't want to hold you back, I just want to watch you grow
You're the one who taught me you don't have to look behind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Nobody's gonna kill your dreams
Or tell you how to live your life
There'll always be people to make it hard for a while
But you'll change their heads when they see you smile

The times you were born in may not have been the best
But you can make the times to come better than the rest
I know you will be honest if you can't always be kind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine,
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

~Carole King

Got to sneak Grandma in for a quick shot.

Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain, deep as a river
Come rain or come shine

I guess when you met me, it was just one of those things
But don't ever bet me, 'cause I'm gonna be true if you let me


You're gonna love me, like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
Happy together, unhappy together
Won't that be fine?

Days may be cloudy or sunny, we're in or we're out of the money
I'm with you always, I'm with you rain or shine

Gonna love you, I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna love you, come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river
Come rain or come shine
I'm gonna love you, I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna love you!

I guess when you met me, it was just one of those things
But don't ever bet me, 'cause I'm gonna be true
Gonna be true if you let me
Let me, let me
Let me, let me
Let me love you
Let me love you
Come rain or come shine

Happy together, unhappy together
Won't that be fine?
Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money

I'm with you baby, I'm with you baby

I'm with you always, come rain or shine!
