'Tis the Season of Giving...Come give (and receive) with NJ Child Photographer Christine DeSavino

~A Winter Fundraiser~

NJ - NY Child & Newborn Photographer: Christine DeSavino

As a children's portrait photographer, I feel so blessed to be able to work with children on a regular basis.  Whether it's capturing a smile, coaxing a giggle, or preserving a beautiful moment for Mom and Dad to treasure for years to come...these are the things that give me a deep sense of joy and happiness in what I do.  But I also know that not all children are as blessed as the ones that I have met and photographed this year. That's why as 2010 comes to a close, I'd like to give something to the children and families that need our love and support.

So please join me in the effort to help fight pediatric cancer, and in doing so, we will give a very special gift to a deserving family...

MY PLEDGE:  ***I will donate a free portrait session & photo collection to a child with                                cancer & their family when we reach this $1000 goal!***

$650 and Climbing!
My winter fundraiser is well underway and we're over half way to our goal of raising $1000 in donations to the pediatric cancer foundation...

Raise Awareness and...

Win a Free Mini-Session & Photo Package!

To help spread the word, I am giving away a free Mini-Portrait-Session & Photo Package to one lucky family. Read on for details...

To have a chance at winning, all you have to do is take a guess as to what time of day we will pass the $1,000 mark in donations. Right now we're just over half way, but you can see our current donation status here.

To enter, just leave me a comment either on my facebook page or below this post stating the time of day (ie. 3:37pm) that you think we will surpass $1000. The actual day does not matter - the time is all that is needed in your guess.  If there is a tie, the first to guess wins.

Yes, you can ENTER TWICE! Just take a different guess on both sites (facebook & blog) and whoever guesses the closest time will win! (Mini-Session cannot be in lieu of previously scheduled session; however, the mini-session is transferrable. Session must take place in my normal working area of Northern NJ, the NYC metro area, and LBI/Jersey Shore.)

The mini-session will consist of a 1/2 hour photo session with 10-12 images in an online gallery for the winner to select from. The package will include the following prints: 1 11x14, 2 8x10's, and 4 5x7's!

Also, when we reach our $1000 goal in donations, I'll be giving away a complete portrait session and photo collection to a family affected by pediatric cancer, so come join me now in this great cause:
