Just a Bit About Me

Chrystine Murphy I started as a child with a 110 camera in my hand, and my parents complaining that I used up too much film. I moved on to be a young adult with children and being someone who loved to take photographs of them. I dreamed of that beautiful 35mm SLR in the window, so I then became the friend with the awesome SLR camera that took great shots of her kids, and was willing to photograph some of your kids too. Now I am that girl with the DSLR that LOVES photography and LOVES to capture that moment, you know that one moment that just needs to be frozen in time. I am that stay at home mom that needed to let out the artist inside and has managed to find a career she can do that feels like an avocation every time she goes to work or sits down at the computer to work. That is me, and I am Chrystine Murphy but my friends call me Chrys. I am a graduate of New York Institute of Photography. I love what I do and I want to show that to you as my client. I want to thank you for taking the time to check out my site and thank you for considering me as your personal photographer. Thank You and God Bless Chrystie Murphy

Hi everyone! I know I have been MIA on my blog for awhile. My daughter has come home and I spend most of my time with my grandkids. As like everyone else Covid effected how much I am out and about shooting. I am getting back into the swing of things. It has been a difficult time for all of us! 

So here is what is new
  I am available on Thursdays and Fridays for Portraits as well as some Saturday's as long as these days are booked weeks in advance.. 
  I am doing Sr. Portraits/Grad for Free to all as long as it is local to me, if you are not local I will ask only that my gas is paid for to get to the location. 
  I am willing to take payments on any shoot! I will work with any and all on what they can afford
  I will no longer do any Weddings or Larger Parties, Small gatherings only and no longer than 3 to 4 hours.. 

I hope that everyone is doing well and staying Healthy! Get up Get out and enjoy life! 

It's Been awhile

Hi Family, Friends, and Clients! 
     I know it has been a long while since I have posted on here. So let me tell you a little bit about what I have been up to. 
I have been working randomly but mostly just trying to get back to the art of what I love to do which is capturing whatever beautiful things my eye should catch. My husband and I have been trying to travel more and get out with our offroad club which gives me more places to go to find new things to shoot. I do still love to shoot portraits and parties I still love to capture peoples special moments! I have become a grandmother again, to a human grandbaby and a fur grandbaby, which is awesome. I have been finding myself with more time to be working on the feeling of being behind a camera again and the excitement of it is bubbling up inside. 

I know that we are all going through trying times right now with Covid19 and it is scary but by focusing on the positive and finding things to do that take up our time this will pass. 

Keep your mind busy and you wont have time to think about all that can go wrong. 
Be Safe all

Hello Spring 2018
Hi everyone! 
    It has been quite a while since I have posted on here in the form of a blog. I have continued to work and build my skills. I love to shoot the outdoors and to take pictures of Nature and Animals. So I have been doing a lot of that. I have been doing lots of Portrait sessions and it has been fun. Our family has been growing and it has been a wonderful experience. I love getting new clients and doing fun location shoots. 
    Enough about me. I am running a special right now offering $95 45min Location shoot. 
Have a wonderful Spring!!

December 9, 2013
I am going back to doing this for a hobby, Tho for the last 3 or 4 years that is pretty much all I have ever been as I am not good at being in business. 
I will always being willing to do a Shoot here or there for a friend or family member but as a job and as being self employed as a photographer I have not been good at that end of business. I will however keep going with Photography and finding the fun in it all over again. 
Thank you to all my dedicated friends who have asked me to do their Portraits and work with them in all they do! 
Much love to you all
