BOMB IT!!! We were in graffiti + concrete BLISS with the Miller family. Once we saw how vibrant their outfits were we took FULL advantage of downtown Tucson’s new textures + outdoor art. It’s always evolving and we never know how long it’s going to stay up! Let’s just say, we were ecstatic to finally get to shoot it! I think the kiddos got a kick out of it more then we did.

Thanks Miller’s for being so animated!!!

Here’s what the Miller family had to say about their experience with us…

“This is my second time working with Purple Nickel Studio and found it to be even better than the last time. Being uncomfortable in front of the
camera, I put off family photos for as long as I could. It was unnecessary as they did such an amazing job capturing the relationships in
my family. I am so happy that I have record of my children’s huge personalities at this stage in their lives! They caught so many wonderful candid moments. The photos make me so happy to view, I had a hard time adhering to my budget! Thank you again Eric and Casia.”


The Himes are one of our favorite families… no really they are!!! Way back when we started our company they were the first family who completely ‘got us’ as artists. Little did they know in 2008 they were the pioneers who helped us discover and develop our custom portrait experience. Eric and I decided to implement many of our company ideas + beliefs regarding how we wanted the client journey to unfold with the Himes. We had unbelievably rewarding results. Not only did Sara and Tim trust our creativity during the shoot, they let us experiment no matter how cuckoo the ideas seemed. They were in for the whole ride. We can not thank this family enough for helping us form our foundation. Not only did they inspire us to move forward with our ‘out of the box’ personal experience, they gave us the hope and the courage we needed to succeed. We are so grateful and honored to once again capture a tiny piece of their life.

Sooooo enough with the sappy-ness… lets get to the images!

Here’s what the Himes family had to say about their experience with us…

“Three years ago Purple Nickel did the most amazing job with our family photos. Since then, we added another member to our family and needed some updated artwork and bragging material. When we decided we wanted to have our family captured in time once again, there was no question in our minds that we would ask Casia and Eric to help us. This could prove to be a challenge- capturing two adults, a 6 year old and a one year old still learning to walk but Purple Nickel did it with ease! We wanted a different look this time around, something that looked a little less ‘Arizona’ and a little more ‘Wide Open Spaces’. Casia and Eric scouted the perfect location and it went amazingly. The way they worked with our family and ideas sharing their knowledge and experience. We now have the most personal, fantastic artwork of our boys hanging in our home and for that we will be forever grateful. Tim and I plan to continue using Purple Nickel to capture our boys as they grow- we will let their amazing pictures tell a beautiful story. Thank you!”


Everyone meet Ryan, Sheena and lil’ Cora!!!  We first met Ryan and Sheena (a truly adorable couple) a few years ago when they modeled/collaborated on the greenray project. BTW, during that time Sheena was knocked up. So when we bump’d (no pun intended) into each other over the summer and finally saw Cora, we knew it was time to hook up again.  They were the PERFECT family to take on an adventure around our new place. And if you know us well, you know how inspired we are with the architecture + landscape.  We’re pretty sure that Ryan (a kick ass graphic designer) approved the aesthetic too.

Here’s proof that our morning together was filled with yummy light, bitchin’ attire and a little sprinkle of love…

Ryan reached out to his jewelry-maker friend Laura of Wingflash about borrowing a chunky gold necklace and she totally delivered!  I covet her crystal & turquoise creations.

Here’s what the Trayte family had to say about their experience with us…

“We knew from the get-go that this would be a special experience… Casia even helped us pick our wardrobe! They’re the perfect team: Casia’s eye for close-ups and portraits balances well with Eric’s more wide-angle architectural vision. It resulted in a photo shoot so beautiful that we bought a 2-canvas set, a wood-backed panorama, used shots for our holiday cards and many of the photos as gifts! They were wonderful at making us feel comfortable, and such a joy working with our toddler–who is quite the curious one! We’ve received endless compliments about the unique vision and style of our photos, and the greatest thing is we’ll be reminded of the precious moments as a family at this stage for years and years to come.”
