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 MILLER kids | my other 6 babies | columbus, ohio family photographer

They have been with me since my film days. I started taking their pics when #5 was in her beautiful tummy – or was it #6?? Ellie and Brynn went to preschool with two of them. LOVE them. Wendi (mamma) puts me to shame. Her house is spotless. She is super safety conscious and aware (I give up and throw my hands in the air at times) and whenever you see her she always ALWAYS happily has a kid on her hip, lol. I get to the point where I don’t want to be touched or hot. I think all 6 do a sport (I complain and am exhausted with ONE) – they are all sweet, nice, well mannered, humble, funny, loving, cooperative….well sort of, lol. Ryan HAD to hold a pencil and a Bob the Builder notebook for an entire session once – but if you would hear him plead with his deep raspy voice you would give in too. I love these kids. She just scheduled yesterday for 2011 so I figure I better put 2010 up – haa – sorry Wendi!!

Look at how happy they are – look how their eyes shut when they smile – love that…miller10miller1miller9

Love these two. He was apprehensive about smiling until everyone started chanting his name behind me. ADORABLE. Gosh it was cute.miller6miller7

Trying to get all 6 in the air at the same time is not possible – but funny. We were trying to time it up with Ian (#6) who jumped one second after they were supposed to:)miller4

These shots make me grunt a short yet powerful “Mmmm” like I’ve just eaten something really tasty.miller2miller3

Had to do it …miller8

A note to Paul (daddy): do it. Please. Please join the pics this year! PLEASE!! I have wanted you and Wendi in these shots so so so badly. Achingly bad. And Wendi I promise promise promise I won’t go in tight on your face. Everything will be from a distance and there is something called Photoshop:)

August 27, 2011 - 8:31 pm Lisa Scherer - The last picture, genius! I love it!!

August 27, 2011 - 4:02 pm April - Wendi AND Paul---DO IT!! Both of you!!! It will be something your kids treasure down the road. I think we MIGHT have 5 pictures total of my husband & his parents. DO IT! No excuses.

August 26, 2011 - 4:01 pm Wendi Miller - I am soooo thankful that you approached me seven years ago in preschool class and asked to take Nick's picture!!!!! Little did you know that someday you would be taking pictures of six Miller kids:) We love love love you so much and look forward to our session with you all year! You are the VERY BEST!!!

August 26, 2011 - 1:48 pm Amy Wiff - Oh, and Ian...totally adorable litte guy...love that you got him smiling. He's a hoot!!

August 26, 2011 - 1:47 pm Amy Wiff - These photos are AWESOME. I personally know this family and they are all exactly how Cathy describes them. These photos make my heart happy...I just smile looking at them. GREAT family, beautiful kiddos and Nick (Child #3) is one of my son's BESTest buddies! It is hard to choose, but my favorite photo is the last one in front of the windows! Priceless. I CANNOT wait to see the 2011 photos. Thanks for sharing!!
