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. 

FOREST, DAISY and OWEN | columbus, ohio family photographer

img_1236-copyblogMeet Owen, Forest and Daisy. Our families are intertwined because Daisy and my Ellie have gone to school together since Kindergarten and because I see their daddy James everyday at the Starbucks he manages.

I have issues that are resolved everyday with my grande 3 pump, non fat, no whip white mocha:) I have tried to stop. I have guilt but then I just think and say to myself – “at least it’s not alcohol or cocaine” or “at least it’s not a shopping addiction” or  “Brad has lunch everyday in a nice cafeteria with adults”. It’s bad and I’m a little crazy but that little cup of coffee starts my day out right and that is really important when you have a 2 year old:). And seeing James everyday is a bonus because he is the nicest nicest guy with the greatest staff. He is so nice in fact that he is letting me hang some of my photos in Starbucks. That’s a big deal to me. So I called his wife (who I also adore) to see if we could secretly take some pics of the kids for Father’s Day and so that they would also be included with the set I hang at Starbucks. Very exciting.

img_0996-copyblogDaisy has the best “looking at the camera with no expression” look. Most kids can’t look at a camera and be expressionless unless you catch them off guard. I love this shot.

img_1273-copyblogI keep coming back to this one. I love it. My favorite “arsty” one – I know it’s weird. Not one to give to the grandparents. But I love it. I love the grass on Owen’s shoulder. I love that Daisy is laying on top of Forest’s head.  The next one is for the grandparents………..:)
