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.

Sneak peek of a sneak peek. More to come tonight …….. 🙂

Shoots like this are why I love love love my job. I tried to cancel it. It was windy, gloomy and stormy and I was cold and grumpy from being with my kids at a baseball game. I was done. I wanted to go home. So I called Stacey and Caron (mom) and they would have none of it. Good thing:) Even though it was windy and stormy the sun kept peeking through giving off the illusion that I had thousands of dollars worth of lights and assistants helping me, lol. Gotta love that. 

I learned so much. The first being that getting a horse ready for a shoot is harder than getting four children dressed and ready. It takes a lot of work making a horse all shiny and glossy – especially after it rolls in mud that morning:) I loved watching Stacey interact with Knightly. Zero fear. Total confidence. I have to admit my heart was pounding at first – I always forget how big horses are especially when they are right in front of you and not in the stalls at the Fair:)

img_0353-copyblogHow sweet is this? This cutey is Alex – Stacey’s boyfriend. They met in church and he has one of the same baseball coaches as my son. Sometimes it is such a small world.
