Think Pink, Participating Photographer :: Grande Prairie, Peace River region, Edmonton & surrounding areas

** UPDATE: I have learned that the Think Pink organization has, unfortunately, closed down and the program is no longer available.**

I am 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. Think Pink Photography is a charitable organization that serves two main purposes – celebrating life and supporting the cause.

Through their professional photographer network, they 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, Think Pink Photography has 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 their 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 the Think Pink 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 (for your convenience, please use the “Contact” button at the top of this photo journal).

As a cancer survivor myself, 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 http://www.thinkpinkphotography.org

What a truly worthwhile cause and I’m so glad to discover this project. I think it’s wonderful when we can find ways to use our particular talents/skills to do good in the world.

My dad’s girlfriend has a friend in Calgary who just started treatment for breast cancer. I was thinking a photography session with you might help lift her spirits — and now you’re doing exactly that with Think Pink!! I’m going to give dad’s GF the link and tell her to encourage her friend to contact you. Thanks for helping cancer patients, and congrats on being a survivor yourself!!

Great minds think alike, Diane! We must have both signed up at the same time, unware the other was doing the same! How cool is that?!
