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

Still some time left to ride out in the Desert and Mother Nature really starts to show us her Colors with all the flowers and trees. Gods Beauty is shown and his love is there!

March is MS Awareness Month!!

March 2, 2012

Help to spread the Word and Help bring awareness to MS and find a Cure!!!
Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

Spring is on the way!!!!
