Children

     Children Portraits, by Dan Murphy the Photographer have been most memorable for their families for decades.  Dan has the uncanny ability to bring out the best in youngsters, no matter the setting.  Many children photographers think children have to smile, or that overly bright colorful outfits and distracting elements are the keys to success.  Not true.  Bringing out the character of every child is paramount with Dan.  And besides, sometimes a child’s unique personality creates a great portrait all by itself.    Thanks for viewing.  The following are photojournalism, studio and on location portraits Dan has created for nearly four decades.
