Since the inevitable gray Cleveland winter weather has graced us with its presence a bit sooner than we’d hoped, we figured it was up to us to add some color! My four year old niece, Josie, didn’t know what she was in for when she came by the studio today to visit… I asked her if I could take some pictures of her so I could test our new color backdrop walls! We took giant canvases and painted them colors that look great on nearly every skin tone, and couldn’t wait to try them out… so here’s “Josie Posey” living up to the name… Now it’s your turn to come in and try them for yourself! Which is going to be your favorite??
Kim Ponsky Photography and Eton Chagrin are teaming up to bring you the biggest, best, and most spectacular holiday mini-sessions. With the quality you’ve come to expect from both of our brands, our Winter Wonderland scene will blow you away. Our studio is currently covered with glitter, birch trees, and everything else we need to create the mini-session set that only we can deliver. We will be holding our Mini’s on multiple days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, with many fantastic gifts and keepsakes available to pair with your photos.
Because we always offer more than what’s expected, we will also be pairing some great activities for the little ones, gift wrapping, and other special offerings with the photo sessions, so be sure to check out the added events!
Just $25 gets you a 10-minute Mini Session for up to 6 people, and a 5×7 matted print of the photographer’s choice.
Have two kids? You can sign up for 4 sessions — one for each kid individually, one of the kids together, and then one of the whole family– a complete family session, and 4 prints, for just $100!
Within just minutes of your photo shoot, you will see the selected image, and will have the option to purchase custom photo holiday cards, ornaments, frames, and many more exciting gifts and keepsakes. Most items, as well as your prints will be available for pickup at our studio in just one week.
Walk-ins are welcome, but there will likely be a wait… so make sure to call us to book your photo shoot before it sells out!

I’ve posted many times to this blog about what to wear for outdoor family photos. But I’m adding one more…
Check out this family, and their awesome use of bright colors! These florescent colors not only contrast well against the monochromatic tones of the autumn woods, but keep the kids looking vibrant and instantly bring fun into the images. I love the choices they made for their photo shoot, and had to share some of my favorites from this families outdoor photo shoot at the Solon Metropark.
I love portrait sessions, whether in the studio or on location. Interacting and getting to know the people I work with is the best part of the job. Working to get my goals for the session achieved by making the kids laugh, getting the dads to relax, or chasing that busy little toddler from place to place…
But, occasionally I work with clients who are looking for something different. This family wanted a mix… some great portraits of their four kids, and images chronicling their family’s interactions and favorite activities. Well, anyone who knows me knows how much I love marshmallows– so this was even more fun when work turned to play as our photo shoot turned to the campfire for some roasting fun!
I put these images in black and white to compliment their photojournalistic style… I can see these images together with the many others from the session together in an album, all in black and white, that will bring the family back to this moment every time it’s opened.
I can’t believe we’re mid-November… I’m pretty sure yesterday it was August. The window is closing, but there’s still time to book your fall photo session — either outdoors or in the studio! Our deadline to do your shoot in time to get your goods for the holidays is Thanksgiving, so don’t wait! Call us right away to get your spot. Our calendar is busy, but we do still have some room to add more shoots! Worried that the leaves have already fallen from the trees? Don’t! We keep you as the focus of the photos anyways– the background becomes merely a backdrop for your photos. Check out how the bare trees turned into a beautiful neutral backdrop for some of these family photos we did just last week! Okay, now it’s your turn– call us NOW before we’re under three feet of snow!!
