Hot Rays and Baby Days

HI Everyone! As you can see, I have been updating my website! It’s still not complete so, please continue to excuse the mess. I promise I have been working really hard to get things in order. Which by the way, “order” has not been my middle name lately. Ashley Chaos Murphy is more like it these days. I’ve spent quite a few nights after my day job, my mom job, to update the look of Ashley Murphy Photography. I’ve been working really hard and I hope you will like the finished product. Send me some love in the comment section if you get a chance. *wink, wink – hint, hint*

The reason for the change is honestly, things needed a change, I needed a change. Between you and me… a lot has changed.

One of the many things that has changed – my beautiful friend and her bearded hubby sat me down in a little Mexican restaurant a few months ago and handed me a photo of a sweet ultrasound. I squealed and squeaked with joy! I’m ridiculously excited for them because 1. I know they are going to be amazing parents and 2. because I’m so excited to see their sweet baby grow.

This little boy is already loved beyond measure. He will have such an amazing group of people around him who love and care for him.

I know, you came to see the pictures!   Um… what are you waiting for?! Get to scrolling!

This session was unbearably hot! With the rain coming and going … coming and going… and well, you get the point…this Texas heat … our clothes were sticking to us and we were pouring buckets of sweat. I love that all through the session Megan kept telling everyone or maybe repeating to herself  that it didn’t feel too hot and it wasn’t so bad. Positive affirmations! Positive thinking! I had to agree until I look over at her bearded hubby, who in one word looked miserable. Ah, the things we do for love… or a happy baby momma.





I wasn’t sure if this picture was going to make the blog, but when I think of Megan and Anthony I think of them being silly with each other. That’s the type of couple they are. Silly and in love. I have no idea what Megan said to him or what pose they were going for, but they are goofballs. I felt you needed to see what I was really dealing with. 😉



Seriously! JJ is going to have the most amazing eyes and of course be ridiculously good looking… I mean come on… look at them!

New Changes Are Coming








Parker is FOUR

Where is the time going? My sweet baby is four tomorrow. I’ve been silently wiping tears away this week because I can remember the day I told my husband I was pregnant with her. I can remember her first cries as she entered the world and how it was the best sound I ever heard. I remember how terrified I was to be her momma and how all my fears vanished the moment she looked up at me with those big blue eyes and I knew at that exact moment I would be forever changed. She became my whole world May 15 and she still is. I remember how proud I was when she took her first steps, said her first words and the moment she decided she wanted to pick out her own clothes. She’s has a beautiful soul. My little lawyer, jokester, kind heart. She isn’t afraid to get dirty or to fall.  She is my wild child, free spirit, fun loving girl. My baby.




You mean so much to our family. Happy birthday to my bright light, my beautiful baby.




Family Fun

I’m starting the blog with these two cuties! Do you see that handsome guy? It’s been years since I’ve seen him, but I took his newborn pictures and his momma’s maternity pictures. He’s grown into such a handsome little guy! How time flies!



About a month ago I got to take photos of this family! It’s so fun when a family is so relaxed and excited about pictures! I wanted to do a quick post of these awesome people! Here we go!


 Look how happy they are! It’s always awesome to see a family full of girls! That sweet dad had his hands full when they were younger! Now these ladies have families of their own and you can see how much they love each other!


Everyone together, like one big happy family!




I am ending this quick blog with these three cuties! Seriously! Those faces! Sorry for a short blog once again! This momma has to type in between nap time and coffee sips! Until next time! XO!


Seven Months

I wanted to share a quick update on the girls…

It’s hard to believe that almost seven months ago I had Kenna! She is growing into such a beautiful little girl. She’s almost crawling and has the best belly laugh. It comes from down in her toes. She’s a mommy’s girl through and through.

Parker has taken to a big sister like she was always meant to be one. She’s helpful and kind to Kenna. She loves helping me with diapers and her bottles and one of my favorite things is seeing Parker run into her room every morning and say “Good Morning Kenna” as she looks into her crib.


The hubs and I are slowly finding the balance of having two kids. It’s still an adjustment. When one is happy, one is crying. When one is sleeping, one is awake, but they are so much fun.


Until next time! XO
