Think Pink Photography

March 19, 2010

 

Think Pink Logo

Christy Marrone Photography is excited to announce a partnership with Think Pink Photography. Think Pink Photography was founded in October 2007 to support individuals and their families who have been touched by breast cancer. We are a charitable organization that serves two main purposes – celebrating life and supporting the cause.

Through our professional photographer network, we are helping breast cancer patients to celebrate life with charitable photography sessions. Individuals may choose to document their fight against the disease before or during treatment, or prefer to capture their victory by scheduling a session within 12 months after treatment is completed. Photographers world-wide are now available to donate time and talent to celebrate life and support the cause. There is no cost or obligation to the breast cancer patient. Clients participating in a Think Pink Session will receive a complimentary photo session, as well as a set of 10 small prints from the session. They will also receive a discount on any additional portraits they wish to purchase, although there is absolutely no purchase required at any time.

To support the cause, we have partnered with The Eric R. Beverly Family Foundation. All funds generated through donations and various fundraising efforts are paid directly to The Eric R. Beverly Family Foundation. As a 3-time breast cancer survivor, Danielle Beverly and her husband Eric joined together to form a foundation dedicated to promoting education, increasing awareness, and providing support and resources for families who have been touched by breast cancer.

Please subscribe to our blog (on the Think Pink website) and tell your friends and family about Think Pink Photography. Awareness is everything and we can’t be successful without you.

I encourage you to view our website, make a donation, or hire a photographer that supports Think Pink Photography! If you hire me, mention Think Pink and I will make a personal donation to the organization. If you, or someone you know, would like to schedule a Think Pink session, please contact me for details.

I am very proud to be a network photographer with Think Pink Photography, and am anxious to get the word out about this amazing program. For more information, you can contact me, or you can visit the Think Pink Photography website at:

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!
