Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs blog. Happy New Year friends! Welcome to 2020!! A new year brings with it the opportunity for change, new beginnings and defining intentions. And with that in mind, Chrissie Murphy Designs is having a much needed makeover!
Tonight I am going to be sharing about my word for the year. This little makeover falls into line with one of the things I’m wanting to pursue this year… which is truth. And no, truth is not my word.
Convicted to present the truth
You see, my previous photography setup was staged. There’s nothing wrong with that, except it’s not the truth. You could be forgiven for thinking I had white marble bench tops and a white timber slat table where I photographed my work. But really, it’s just a couple of pieces of A3 cardstock that I covered in pretty contact. Again, nothing wrong with that, it’s served me and my photography very well over the last few years.
But….. I’ve been convicted about presenting the truth. If you read my blog post about what I learned in 2019, you’ll recall that I learned that I can live with one pair of shoes and no one treated me any differently!! I know, crazy….. but it was something I really needed to learn (by experience) for myself. I have learned that people see and treat you for who you are, not what you have. I was living deceived, believing I needed all the things, but now I see the truth and I’m grateful.This little revelation got me wondering about other things I was buying into… and staged photography was one of them.

So 2020 will see more authentic photography accompany my work. Yes, I do have black marble-like benchtops and they’re actually quite beautiful.
From today onwards…
From today onwards my blog and socials shall move to a darker look, which is more truthful with what you’ll see when you come and visit my studio – lots of timber and black marble. I hope you like the makeover that will be rolled out over January as I seek to refine all I do.
Bless you all, I pray your year ahead is full of intention, meaningful conversation and great memories.
