Common Questions

How do I book a session?
To schedule a session please email me at  My sessions take place on the weekends only at this time.  Please email me at least 2 weeks in advance to schedule your session.

Where do the sessions take place?
I work on location.  Sessions can take place at your home, a favorite park, downtown, the beach.  Any where that you and your family will feel comfortable.  Usually morning or evening light are the best times for an outdoor session, cloudy days are even better!  We want to avoid mid day lighting and bright sun as its the least flattering and can result in harshly lighted images.

What should I wear?
I have a great What to Wear Guide that will help you tremendously in preparing your wardrobe for your session.  You will receive the guide once your session is scheduled.

When will I see my proofs?
Quality and creativity take time.  Christy understands that you are excited to see your images but she also wants to make sure they are perfect when you view them.  It takes around two weeks to edited your session and upload them to your private online gallery.

How do I order?
You can order online through your private online ordering gallery.  The gallery will stay up for 7 days (one week).  Orders must be placed during this week, there is a $50 fee to reload your gallery to place an order after those 7 days..  You may also email or call me with your order.  I currently take payments through Paypal or Check.

What happens to the images? Do you store them?
Any ordered images are archived for one year.  All unordered images are purged to make room for new clients.

Do you offer gift certificates
Yes I do!  Gift certificates make great gifts for Baby Showers, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, any holiday really.  Contact Christy for more information on gift certificates.

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!
