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.

So we go to Myrtle Beach for a baseball Tournament.

I offer to take family pics of anyone who wants one.

I wanted to take them at a pier. I love piers.

So Ellie and I go investigate the main Myrtle Beach pier. Holy homeless people under it – so I decide without further investigation to have everyone meet up at a different pier.

HAAAA! It was in a complicated location which required going through a mobile home park and paying a 5$ entrance fee. This mobile home/camping park was like something out of a Hollywood movie. Think 1960. Golf carts everywhere. I was expecting Baby and Johnny (Dirty Dancing) to make their appearance any given moment. I truly didn’t know that places like this existed let alone be crowded and bustling with activity. Kids were dead silent staring out the windows while driving through it while I kept saying WOW over and over again, lol. Looking back I should have been snapping pics but was too stunned. It was a secret city within a city.

So we get there and surprisingly enough everyone else does too. We walk down to the pier and there is mini sand dune that all the kids automatically start playing on. I start shooting family pics while others wait, but this little dune was quite the attraction. So I start snapping the kids jumping. Then some parents start jumping. THEN THE COACHES START JUMPING.  Nice little gift for a photographer with intense pressure to have your settings right:)

Love little unexpected moments like this….jump1jump2jump3jump5jump6jump7jump8jump9jump12

Oh how I wish I could have been in front of  him for this one but my camera would never be the same:)

If your pic didn’t make it (Evan, Eric jr.) I am SO SO sorry. It was a hard shot – lots of blur – lots of images trashed:(
