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


  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!

  2. Oh my gracious! I LOVE them! I need several of them! Love and miss you!

  3. those are really great pics! and the advantage of someone else taking them is we get to see you, too! <3

  4. beautiful photos. your kids are gorgeous.
