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 Brad’s car died.


More to repair than what it was worth – it was the car I bought when we had no children people. In fact I don’t even know if I knew Brad when I bought it – but poor Brad had to take the hand me down when we had to get the mini van. He never ever liked that car:( So it was a big stinking deal to get a new car. It completely consumed every minute of our lives for 3 days. We read and researched, we test drove, we wheeled and dealed, we left, we laughed at the dealers trying to find their cars in the lot, we called our mechanic and then finally decided on the Suburu Outback. So fun to see him skip out to his car every morning. Kidding.

This is him pulling into the driveway for the first time…


Checked out Alum Creek on the only day of the whole month where nothing is written on my calendar. We had fun. Great light, soft wind, love these pics….

Dane is currently into all things camo, and I currently don’t really care what he wears out of the house really – so it’s working well for us right now:)blog11blog21How about his little fruit punchy crusty lips?img_9454blog

I wanted to take a few shots of just Brynn because she just turned NINE.img_9404blogimg_9513blogLove her freckles.img_9518blog

But then Ellie crept into the picture – love Brynn’s reaction. img_9406blog

Speaking of Ellie – boy do we get into some battles over her unibrow, lol. I’m starting to negotiate barn time if she will let me manage her eyebrows, lol.img_9413blog

And then Jackson found a nasty, dirty sock. So what does one 13 year old boy filled to the brim with testosterone do with a nasty dirty sock? Well he fills it with sand so that he can try to hit/kill/decapitate seagulls of course. Duh.

Look closely in the bottom right hand corner of the second shot:)blog31

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed saying the words ball and sand and sock and sack in as many ways as humanly and inappropriately as possible. I had to finally shut them down. Got some great shots of Ellie watching the fool though. He went to battle with those seagulls, haa!img_9507blogimg_9537blog


The money shot that required bribery.Worth it.

Sometimes people worry about Ellie because she is so quiet, when really she’s just my quiet, content, introverted and thoughtful one – and I thank my lucky stars everyday for it:)


When she is at the barn she is different. Her face is different. Her posture is different. So if anyone would like to buy her a horse and pay for the boarding monthly – let me know. We need a driver too because I am about ready to poke my eyeballs out driving her there.blog61img_9684blogimg_9713blogimg_9728blog

May 10, 2012 - 12:40 pm lisa sweeney - hi cathy!! i'm a friend of brad's from hilton head - used to work at the paper with him...just wanted to say that i've read your website/blog and i am SURE that if i lived in ohio, you and i would be FRIENDS - like the kind of people who immediately like each other's sunglasses and flip flops...i am a ( former) portrait photographer - i have three boys - one adorable redhead who calls himself the "ginger ninja" and looks like he could be one of yours...AND he is a TOTAL BARN RAT!!! he is the only boy at the barn, rides western with a bunch of beautiful girls who ride english....and he has that same 'different' posture at the barn. it's in his blood...and there's no stopping it. i've told him that we won't even TALK about getting him a horse until he's 16, and even then it will be instead of a car...his response was "i'll ride it to school"....great. SO, just wanted to say how much i love your blog, your photos, your beautiful family and even your hubby....he's a GOOD ONE - and i am happy to think that he's found "a GOOD ONE" TOO!!! :-) hope to meet you on HHI one day!!
