Christine Sullivan :: @csullivan409

Christine is born and bred in Beaver County Pennsylvania.  she attended Penn State University and graduated with a BS in Education. She has been married for 15 years to her husband Greg.They live in Rochester and have a menagerie of cats and dogs that they adore. She works full time for an Early Intervention agency. She has her own side business called Creative Cookies and Cakes and she is a baker/decorator.  This is her passion and keeps her busy most evenings and weekends. she always joke that she goes to work on Mondays just to relax.

Christine has always loved all art forms.  Knowing a handful of professional photographers has made her appreciate this medium more than ever before. She attended a Captured::Pittsburgh workshop where her cupcakes were the subject and she fell in love with what so many were doing with them. That day she also learned a lot about staging, lighting and how to take the best pictures possible to promote her cakes.

Christine’s photo features one of her baking projects. She photographs everything she bakes and was particularly fond of this one. She loves the colors and the backdrop of her tree. She though it was festive and was so excited to submit it.

“This is the second time I’ve had a photograph selected. I am extremely flattered. The talent I see on the Captured::Pittsburgh social media sites are amazing, and I am honored to be in such good company.”

Christine considers Captured Pittsburgh, its staff and participants an inspiration. She’d like to thank her husband, friends and family. They have been there to hold lights or objects at just the right angle, so she can get the shot she needs. They have also been patient with her as she stops the car to photograph something she saw along the way or circle back to something 4 times to find just the right spot.
