    I have been admiring your beautifully photography through our many mutual Sprout friends. Back in my working days I didn’t have the time or energy to participate Ina portrait party and now that I’m not working the funds are not available. I would LOVE to win this package to have special portraits of my family now that it is complete. We haven’t had a family picture since our 19 month was born.

    Every time I see your work I always think the people in the portraits aren’t real. The pictures look so clear they look like professional models. Great work!

    Entering one more time. One thing is for sure, your work always brings out the best colors in all of the children’s eyes!

All About Christy

Christy specializes in custom on location portraiture that will capture your family being themselves. She use the natural light of the sun and available light to capture your photographs. This is especially important when it comes to children and portraits. When a child walks into a portrait studio they will see big lights, reflectors, softboxes, cameras, props and backdrops which can be a bit overwhelming for some kids. When I come to your session it is just me and my camera, a reflector and occasionally a prop or two. I work on location only, as I believe that giving children the freedom to roam around in an outside environment eases them, which results in a more natural and candid portrait. I capture children being themselves. Laughing, playing and goofing around are some of my favorite shots! I don't believe in unnatural and stiff poses. My goal at Christy Marrone Photography is to have fun capturing moments in your family's life and to create for you an art piece you will proudly hang in your home to adore and cherish forever!
