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. 

MICAH and SARAH | columbus, ohio engagement photographer

Brad and Micah know each other through work. They both do an amazing job making sure the boxes and packages that contain fabulous Bath and Body Works products are perty and shiny and the right color and the right size with the right words in the right font in the right place. All hell breaks lose if there is a misspelled 2pt word on the bottom of a box going to print – or if the red on the “Perfect Christmas” box is too orange, lol. I know. I’ve lived through it a couple of times.

I’ve heard things about Micah over the past couple of years. Things like that he is part Eskimo and American Indian (fascinating to a white girl from Dayton), he dresses nice, he has a girlfriend, he got engaged, his fiance works for Abercrombie (which explains his clothes)……..then when gas went up to $100 a gallon they figured out they lived close enough to each other to car pool. All I have to say is that birds of a feather flock together because Micah reminds me a lot of Brad. Easy, reserved, not much ruffles him, probably hard to pick a fight with – I wonder if he has a loading the dishwasher disability. 

This session was just what I needed. The light was RIDICULOUSLY perfect. My subjects were RIDICULOUSLY easy. It is so fun to take pictures of people comfortable in their own skin and in front of a camera. They fit together perfectly. So in love, happy, fun, funny. I LOVE how Micah’s eyes shut when he laughs. I love how Sarah tries to reel him back in when he’s being silly. I love how they are always touching each other and laughing. 

Sorry – I think I talked too much on this one ………I’ll shut up now and show you what I’m talking about –

img_6308-copy-2blogHere is a hilarious example of Sarah trying to reel Micah back in – look at their expressions – they speak volumes, lol. Oh and prior to this picture Sarah asked me if her arm looked fat. I about body slammed her and ate her for a snack.

six-picture-templateAt first they thought I was taking pictures of their feet – so picture #1 is what they were doing naturally – picture #2 I got busted – picture #3 is just plain one of my favorites.

img_6466-copyblogMicah has a gift. He can spread his toes like a gorilla. Sarah is going to love me for posting this. Micah isn’t going to care, heehee

Thank you Micah and Sarah. It was super duper fun for me to get out and spend an evening with you. We can’t wait to go to your wedding and celebrate the day with you and see all the little touches.

May 10, 2009 - 9:02 am Grandma Ellis - Happy Mother's Day These pics are so nice. Glad you captured your Dad hunting for the Easter eggs. Oh, he found 2 more while mowing last week. he is atill determined to mow all this grass by himself. We have an argument almost daily about hiring or not hiring a man to mow. Anyway, have a great day. Love you. Mom

May 8, 2009 - 8:11 pm Zoe Klopf Switzer - Micah and Sarah could not BE more gorgeous! They even have gorgeous feet...it's rediculous! Their pics are amazing. Their love is like a whole other thing in the picture. By the way...the whole 'snot shooting out the nose' thing from Jackson's comment...holy cow, I laughed myself silly about both his comment, and your response. Remember in "As Good As It Gets" when that lady says to Jack Nicholson who plays a crabby author, "How do you write women so well?" He replies, "I take a man, and I take away reason and accountability." Ha! There you have it Jackson.

April 30, 2009 - 2:04 pm Susan - Cathy..these are the MOST FANTASTIC "couple" pictures I have ever seen!!! My favorite are the 3 black and whites at the end...this couple must be thrilled!!! You are so talented...your photography has come so far in the last year...totally professional and just pure genius...it is your gift my friend! :)

April 25, 2009 - 10:16 am Rachel - ummm. Cathy. you totally ROCK. seriously....such a fun and fabulous shoot! I love the fun and love you captured :)
