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. 

THE PARISH FAMILY | so happy to be related to so much awesomeness:)

First of all I am so behind on my blog. I think these images were taken 2 months ago. Shame. Holidays. 4 kids. My New Years resolution is going to be to figure out how to stay on top of it all in Fall 2010.

Okay. So during our first session – yes I said first session – it got dark fast. FAST. It was just a weird night. For starters the clocks had just changed and that particular night it went from good light to no light in 10 minutes. I wish I was one of those rockstar photogs that could just get it all done in 45 minutes. But I’m not:( Don’t know if I will ever be.

So I had to call Diane the next day after losing sleep, sweating bullets, tail between legs, scared, feeling incompetent and tell her I needed more time. Mind you this was after we had planned this session and rescheduled 15 times because of schedules and rain. She was so cool. In fact she didn’t even say “hello” when she answered the phone…she said something funny that broke the ice because she knew we didn’t nail it either. The whole entire time I was thinking I’m so glad they are my cousins, I’m so glad they are my cousins, I’m so glad they are my cousins. Diane’s mom and Brad’s mom are sisters. Unfortunately we only see each other about twice a year in Mansfield, lol (we all live in Columbus). It’s ridiculous because we love each other’s families, have a lot in common, laugh a lot when we see each other, always say we need to get together more – but we don’t:( It’s called 7 kids schedules. I was so happy to take their pics though. So fun. GREAT family. 3 of the nicest, sweetest, well mannered, loving kids.

This is Robby. I noticed at the end of the session he asked if we were done then pulled out his phone to check his messages and start texting. That really impressed me:)

This is Lexi. Doesn’t take a bad picture. Totally in tune to people. Dancer. Can hold her leg up over her head and smile at the camera perfectly balanced. Sensitive. Delightful.

And Tommy. Cutest smile in the whole world. I wanted to just squish and hug him the whole time and see what his head smelled like but held back. That would be a little crazy.

Love the shots I took of Bobby and Diane. When I catch a moment between a mom and a dad it thrills me more than the greatest family shot or kid shot. I can’t imagine what these two have been through either. I can’t imagine the strength a relationship must have to survive being married to a soldier. Period. I do not know how to talk military but all I know is that he has been deployed two or three times and each time it was for a long time and certainly not by any means safe.

I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks|
