Can’t help but tear up a bit as I write this. Don’t worry though, it’s happy tears… First meeting in kindergarten, Rachel and I were inseparable. We did everything together, I mean everything! She was part of my family, the ‘second’ sister I never had!  We were always at each other’s house eating, sleeping, dancing or rollerskating (in no particular order). She was there for me and I was there for her. As the years passed we ended up going to different middle/high schools, but always stayed connected. I even photographed these two high school sweethearts in their senior prom attire….. awwwwww memories. Once college hit, it became more challenging to hang out and we began to grow apart. We even missed seeing each other graduate and get married {insert sad face with a little tear drop}. BUT… slowly over the past few years we have re-connected and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This past spring Rachel and Chris had their first little one, Harper (aka Bubbies). We soooooooooooo want a little girl. She melts our hearts every time we see her.  Most times it’s hard for me to steal her away from Eric because he simply adores her. We’ve been planning their family portraits for awhile and FINALLY the day has come to show them off.  YIPPIE!!!  We’re sort of bias but these are some of our FAVORITE photographs.

Calming ourselves before proceeding.

Rachel loves our ‘mirrored’ photographs, so Eric created this one especially for her. Yeah it rocks!

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

“Going into our shoot, Chris and I were so nervous, because we wanted our pictures to be as amazing as all of the other Purple Nickel photos we’d seen before. As we started playing with Harper, those nerves faded away, and we felt at ease in front of the camera. We were relieved to know that all Casia and Eric expected us to do was have fun! They captured small interactions between us and our daughter and made them larger than life. We will never forget the memories created during our first photo shoot with Purple Nickel Studio, and we treasure the photo art we have in our home!!!”


Last week we finally got to meet our newest nephew Graham!!! He’s 9 months now and is one cutie-pie. I mean… look at those eyes! And his older brothers Dan + William are super helpful especially when it comes time to carrying him around. So while they were in town visiting we were able to squeeze in a much needed family portrait session! They’re growing up too fast.
