The Murphy Family

A couple of months ago I got an email from Tom Murphy inquiring about a family portrait.  Since this is something that I normally don’t get contacted for I was really excited.  I am always looking forward to photographing different types of projects to expand my portfolio.

When I arrived at The Murphy’s I was very impressed by how welcomed they immediately made me feel.  It can be quite an anxious introduction as a photographer meeting her subjects… since most people aren’t too crazy about getting their picture taken =)  They were all dressed in white/ light colors.  I was happy that they had coordinated this, since we hadn’t had a chance to speak about apparel.

The weather had been ficklel so we began shooting right away.  The Murphy’s property was gorgeous and I definitely didn’t have a hard time picking a spot– there were several!  The kids were too adorable; Ellis, Sadie and Dottie.  I had a really great time with them.  I love the images below of Dottie.  Like most toddlers, she needed some bribery in the form of M&M’s to perform in front of the lens.  I was so happy to catch a shot of her popping some in her mouth.

It was a great experience for me and I hope that The Murphy’s had fun too!  They were great and I look forward to working with them in the future.
