HI! I'M CATHY BLACKSTONE.

I am a Columbus based photographer and welcome to my blog.

I love to photograph babies in the tummy, babies out of the tummy, kids being good, kids being bad, kids with special needs, kids with fur, couples in love, families being themselves and seniors in between text messages :)

I have a fun and carefree style that I think you will be very comfortable with. Of course I love to take the classic picture where everyone is looking at the camera with a perfect smile but what I really love to catch is the real "in between" moments. The candid moments that you will cherish forever.

This is my photo blog where I will share favorite images from recent sessions and blab about my interests and family.

Thanks for visiting my site and taking a look. I really appreciate it. 

CHRISTMAS 2009

Our 3 days of solid Christmas is finally over. I am so grateful every Christmas and feel so lucky that my kids are loved and taken care of by the grandparents and cousins but I am so glad it’s over. I feel terrible for writing that. I’ve read other blogs and comments on Facebook about Christmas and wonder if they’re lying about being relaxed and happy, lol. I think I am a super laid back person but not at this time of year. I will fully admit that being a procrastinator doesn’t help. At all. I will own it. I can only start to work or shop or shower if I am behind or late. Wonderful quality. AND I also can’t work or function unless I have an impossible to do list. Two super duper fantastic qualities wrapped up in one person. Lucky lucky Bradley Wayne (husband).

I did manage to take some fun little images though……

My favorite ornament. Brad and I have collected roosters way before they became popular. There are 3 of them in our family crest. We even planned on getting rooster tattoos on our honeymoon – then chickened out. Nice pun. Every year I get him a new one – this one is from about 5ish years ago. It falls under the “super sad if lost or ruined” category.

We make so many sugar cookies at Christmas. It is my weakness. I eat them for breakfast.

How cute is my husband? He loves Chritsmas. He doesn’t stress (because he doesn’t have to shop with Dane). And he decorates. This year he dug out our terrariums and put disco balls and those pine tree things in them. Love that about him.

And we had two super successful crafts this year. Heehee. We made villages out of sculpey and bowls made out of glass crystals. So all you moms out there – remember that:)

December 30, 2009 - 8:52 pm Tina - I love your posts (and your pics) Cathy, because I think, "well thank God someone else feels/acts/behaves that way!" My favorite part of Christmas was when it was over and we were all sitting down after dinner watching 'Up'. And the last picture of Moose made me laugh out loud.

December 30, 2009 - 11:43 am Alicia - I love all of your Christmas pics... Also, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful pics of Ryan. I will cherish them always. They were best Christmas gift ever for me. Love them! Much Happiness to you and the family in the New Year!

December 29, 2009 - 5:12 pm lisamcgarvey@mac.com - Love these shots. I must ask - what lens do you use for those gorgeous pictures inside. Im having a really hard time with the lens I use for low light. Curious what you use.

December 29, 2009 - 4:56 pm apryl - cute shots...and what is it with boys and poop, pee & farts? you are so smart to capitalize on it - i would never have thought about it that way! totally understand how you feel about christmas - i literally said, outloud at my family's party (late in the day) "i am so glad this day is over!" it wasn't meant to be mean, i just cannot relax about those things!!! hope you had a great holiday:)

December 29, 2009 - 11:46 am Jennifer Ingram - I have to have the one of moose in the hat! Really need to make that into an ornament!

December 28, 2009 - 4:14 pm Beth - Loved them all~ but Moose in the hat is the best!
