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 SHIPLEY FAMILY | columbus, ohio family photography

This family oooooooozed charm, beauty and fabulousness. Guess who referred them? Miss Julia Ware (look below). Funny they are side by side. I love their story. I loved their session. Just recently moved from California. Orange County to be exact. Moved to get out of the crazy. Let me pick the spot because they weren’t familiar with Columbus. LOVED THAT. Downtown we went! Rob (dad) had a hard time relinquishing control in a good cute and adorable way, lol. After 3 minutes he remembered he wasn’t at work – but I loved that transition. Amy just wanted to make sure her hair didn’t frizz, heehee. I have a job in which I know immediately what the woman is self conscious about. In less than a minute I am told what I need to avoid, look out for, make skinnier, make smoother … and I love that. Seriously. But can you believe she even has a single insecurity? Please.


I think I like this one better. Can’t decide – go back and forth. But I love the interactions going on …



Zach would love to suck your blood! Love it when kids are toothless. This image will be a crowd pleaser when he’s graduating or getting married:)img_9609-copyblog


The image on the left of Luke would be so so so beautiful enlarged BIG Amy:) untitled-13

September 5, 2010 - 1:43 pm janel - Love the first family shot over the second because it alternates the look-alikes in the family. Great session, Cathy!

August 3, 2010 - 10:27 am elisa - Nevermind! I see you said downtown. I swear one of those looks like the church on N Broadway.

August 3, 2010 - 10:25 am elisa - North Broadway? Love Clintonville :)

June 17, 2010 - 8:39 am Charity - What wonderful photos! A very good idea to have photos done in their new home to look back and remember what they all looked like when they started their new journey!

June 15, 2010 - 3:52 am Liesbeth - Stunning again! Where do you find these photogenic people?! I love the action shot where dad holds one of the kids upside down... really cool.
