Shoots for a Cure photographer

Darlene Cunnup Photography is helping ALL local cancer patients celebrate life with charitable photography sessions.

Any individual that has been diagnosed with cancer or completed treatment within the past 12 months qualifies for a Shoots for a Cure Session.  Sessions are available to document the fight before treatment, during treatment or to celebrate the victory when treatment is completed.
We are donating time and talent to celebrate life and support the cause.

There is no cost or obligation to the cancer patient.

Clients participating in a Shoots for a Cure Session will receive a complimentary photo session, as well as a set of 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.

For more information, or to schedule a session, please contact Darlene Cunnup at:

"What if today, we are just grateful for everything"

I saw this on a friend's fb post with Charlie Brown and snoopy dancin - "What if today, we are just grateful for everything"

I actually said this to a lady and man in Staples last year, who were complaining about only 2 registers being open - they both looked at me as I stood smiling with my bald head at the other register and I simply said - "what if today you were just grateful for everything" - they shut up!! I hate drama!!!!

This is the season for giving people and we should be grateful everyday.

2 cats and their owner - Shoots for A Cure session

Today after a photo meet up - I went to photograph my friend and fellow cancer survivor Karen.  She wanted photos of herself and her 2 cats for Christmas photos.   I did her Session as a Shoots for a Cure session - we had a great time even though Monet (bw cat) did not want to have his photos taken.  I think we got some great ones.
