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.

November 21, 2011 - 1:44 am Liesbeth Parlevliet - I can relate to the ruined photos stuff, having a 15 year old and an 18 year old! It's annoying but their life goal to make things hard for us moms! Congratulations!

November 19, 2011 - 9:43 pm Stacey - Ha! i was laughing out LOUD. LOVE this post, Cathy!! He is a gem!

November 17, 2011 - 8:05 pm Tina - Thank you for reminding me to save the wasted photos. And there are sooooo many of those! Jake turned 13 last month and has forgotten how to smile normally for a picture for at least a year. Happy birthday, Jackson!
