Gena Murphy Photography

Last weekend, I booked a session with local SC photographer Gena Murphy. I just love Gena and so do the kids! She's very in tune with Jayce's needs and being a mom herself, knows how to get kids to cooperate and also knows when they've had enough! And the fact that she is very reasonably priced is another plus!

I found Gena through word of mouth, which is the only way she advertises. A previous member of MOMS Club had her kids' portraits taken by Gena and then sent an email out spreading her name and info. Since its been a couple years since the Picture People closed and a couple years since I've braved Kids Shots or Sears with Jayce, I thought I'd give her a try.

This is what she came up with last Fall, November 2008:
















And these are some of the shots we got last weekend:
































Gena is now booking Spring/Summer portraits at the rate of $75 in the Greenville/Simpsonville area. To contact her, email at mruphypjkmp@aol.com

  1. Great portraits.

    Thank your for the ideas. Our area is pretty saturated with photographers, BUT, they are not saturated with low cost reasonable photographers. I can't tell you how many times friends ask me to take pictures for them, and I make them CD's at no costs.

    I definetly have the resources, I just need to have the confidence in myself to know that I too, can take great pictures and make some money while doing it.

    I really appreciate your ideas.

    I love all these pictures, the coloring, lighting and atmosphere of these pictures really tell a nice story. It would be hard for me to pick a favorite, of course the one with you in them, would be one of my favorites. These would be great to make into an Album for yourself for Mother's Day.

    I still think you can do just do just as good as a job, but sometimes its really nice to have someone else taking the pictures!
