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. 

THIS MORNING….after I spoke at length in a wild and impassioned way (aka tirade) about being responsible..

I saw (in my rear view mirror) this child mouth “i love you”untitled-1

to this hot mess of a forgetful childuntitled-2

In one second I went from enraged and foaming at the mouth to ashamed. UGH.

For the second time this week (it’s Wednesday) we have run late because Brynn can’t find her glasses. She needs a personal assistant. Makes me crazy. The morning goes from 0 to 100. It means I have to hurry up, get dressed, throw a hat on, park the car illegally, grab full diapered barefoot Dane and sign them in. I’m THAT mom. I can’t even make eye contact with the secretary anymore.

So tonight and every night from now on before my hiney touches the couch and I go comatose – I have to find her glasses. ONE MORE THING.

But at least it will prevent me from feeling the guilt and shame and regret and remorse that I do right now.

You should have seen her teary eyes look up at Ellie while she whispered it. They went from teary to twinkly in an instant – and the knife inside of me plunged deeper.
