Think Pink Sessions

I have been blessed with many gifts in life. I try to volunteer as much as possible, and in a world where the focus is always on getting ahead, sometimes it is wonderful to take some time and help someone else.

Amy Clark Photography is now a member of the Think Pink network, a group of photographers who have come together to help breast cancer survivors and those who have rallied along side them to celebrate their life.

From the Think Pink website: "Any individual that has been diagnosed with breast cancer or completed treatment within the past 12 months qualifies for a Think Pink Session. Sessions are available to document the fight before or during treatment or to celebrate the victory when treatment is completed."

Clients will receive a complimentary session, (20) small prints, an 11 x 14 wall portrait and a discount off additional print orders. In addition, a DVD slide show will be created with all photographs taken during the portrait session.

Any additional funds that are raised through donations are used to support the Eric R. Beverly Family Foundation, a group that promotes awareness and resources to families that are affected by breast cancer. For friends or family members of individuals who have set up a portrait session, 15% of the profits will go to the foundation. Some of the fantastic things that they provide are financial support for treatment of the uninsured and under insured, providing support networks for not only the survivors of breast cancer, but the loved ones who are supporting them.

If you know someone who could benefit from these services, or are looking for a participating photographer in your area, please go to the Think Pink website for more details, or contact myself for more information.

  1. That is awesome, Dustin did something like this last year for the Relay for Life, we did some sessions with kids that had cancer, and they were so full of life.

  5. I'd love to know how these sessions go for you...I currently volunteer with Celebrating Adoption, but would love another organization to work with, and NILMDTS would be a bit much for me right now.
