Portrait Party Time! (Tampa Family Photographer)

September 8, 2011

I can not believe its already this time of year, but it is time for our Holiday Portrait Parties!  Several people have already contacted me to host a party so this means we only have 3 dates left.

The following dates are available:
October 23rd
November 12th
November 19th

If you would like to be a party host this year please email me as soon as possible to snag one of the dates!

I know some may be thinking, well what is a Portrait Party?  A portrait party is an exciting and affordable way to get amazing professional portraits made for yourself and your friends!  You get to socialize with your friends and hang out while everybody gets to enjoy special discounts only offered to party guests and hosts!  Portrait parties usually take place at the host/hostess home or a local park chosen by the host.  The party host invites 5-10 families to join us and enjoys many perks and free prints and products for hosting the event.  It is a stress free session with a relaxed atmosphere, laid back photographer and lots of fun!  Each host is required to invite 5-10 families to the party.

What is in it for the attending guests?

You don’t want to miss out on this!  Email Christy as soon as possible if you would like to host a portrait party at

If You Have Called Me the Past Month – Please Read!

July 31, 2011

Hi everyone.  I have come to realize that we have been having some phone problems over this last month.  I use my cell phone for business and personal calls and our phone service has been in and out (out more than in) over the last few weeks.  If you have happened to call me and left a message on my voicemail and I did not return your call please email me at and I will call you as soon as possible.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone.  I always return calls within 48 working hours.  If you do not hear back from me within a 48 hour time period please email me to give you a call and I will, or you can leave a comment on this post!  Our phones are still in and out today, I am not sure what the problem is, but I am going to give my cell phone company a call and find out.

Again, very sorry if I have not returned your call, I did not get it on my end.  I will get to everyone as soon as possible!

Sincere Apologies,

Beach Family (Indian Rocks Beach Family Photographer)

I met this family while they were vacationing at Indian Rocks Beach, what a great way to start the summer!  They are also the winner of the Lake Magdalene Elementary Silent Auction – it was a pleasure taking their photographs. It was quite windy at the beach that day, but we managed to get some great photos, see for yourself!

Enjoy your session peek!  I am in love with this first image – LOVE IT! 🙂

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!
