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. 

THE CARTER FAMILY | columbus, ohio family photographer

There was a time  that Ingrid and I saw each other once a week. We go way back. She had a baby or two – so did I – and we were heavy into scrapbooking. She would take every single one of my classes with two of her friends. Those were the days. She would always have to quietly answer her phone and pull out a stack of stapled papers because she would be in the middle of arranging flights for people flying privately while cutting, stitching and adhering stars and fabric and sequins in my classes. It entertained me:)

I’ll never forget the day that she told me she was moving back to Honduras to be closer to her family because she was pregnant with her 3rd BOY. It was by the American Crafts ribbon and mini brads section. She had a husband that was a pilot with a crazy schedule and she needed help. Plain and simple. I get that. I get picking up a family and moving from Columbus, Ohio back to Honduras to be closer to family. Smart. Respectable. I bet she doesn’t have to go to the dermatologist to have a mole removed with four children like I do:)

I was so excited to meet her sweet sweet boys and husband in real life. They come back to Columbus every 4th of July. It has become a tradition. I was so flattered that they asked me to take their family pictures. So much fun.

I have to show you this funny out take – cracked me up.

LOVE their names. I completely expected them to look like Menudo, lol, with black hair. Imagine my surprise when I saw this! Jensen is practically blonde and they all have freckles. I love surprises.

img_8936-9260Look at this sweetness. He love he mommy. The picture on the left was of him hijacking camera time while I was taking a picture of Ethan. So cute. 

img_8950-blog I forgot to ask Ingrid if tooth fairies travel to Honduras or if it is just a wacky American custom.

Thank you! It was so good to see you and catch up. Talk to you soon.

July 23, 2009 - 8:38 pm INGRID - YES YES YES.... TOOTH FAIRIES DO EXIST IN HONDURAS !! But I would dare say the tradition began with the "wacky" Americans as you say !!
