Kim had so much fun shooting Mr. J at the Lagoon at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Personality flowing, his shoot really delivered so many different looks! From playful and mischievous peek-a-boos to serious senior picture previews, this shoot definitely lent itself to a photo album! Happy birthday Mr. J!
I fell head over heels for the the image of Mr J sitting facing the pond with his back to the camera. I got goose bumps and explained that this photo truly encompassed what it is to be a mom. . . your child is in focus and everything else around is a blur.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of our moms, moms to be and women we look up to! Thanks ladies! We wouldn’t be the women we are without you!

Who couldn’t use just little bit more sunshine here in Cleveland!
Little Miss M and her dad took advantage of some early April sunshine in this Spring Photo Shoot at the Lagoon near the Cleveland Museum of art. Cherry blossoms in full bloom and green grass are just a couple of things we Clevelanders have been longing for all winter.
These photos highlight just how great Kim is at capturing a child’s spirit!
Now as much as I love the color green, it’s seems that our office does too. Numerous times we have already all worn green to the office and although we would love to show off our lovely green attire on the blog we decided we were definitely not as cute as some of our kids in green so therefore we opted out of embarrassing ourselves. So instead we’ll share with you a list of ways we try and make greener choices and run Kim Ponsky Photography with more eco-conscious efforts.
1) Instead of using plastic bags we give out reusable KPP totes. They are perfect for groceries or diapers… Not to mention they are durable and totally cute with our logo on them.
2) We offer online proof viewing versus paper prints. This cuts down on paper consumption and saves some trees.
3) We reuse our lab’s packaging materials to pack the orders that we ship out.
and if that wasn’t enough…
4) We offer 100% Recycled Paper stock as an option for our cards.
Lots of other things are green these days, especially the grass! With all this rain in Cleveland, yards have never been greener in the month of June. The rain might not be so great for taking photos but the after effects make for totally luscious foliage and beautiful backdrops for outdoor family photos. Below are a couple photos from a recent shoot held at Horseshoe Lake. How cute is he?!
Today was announced as Spirit Day by GLAAD (The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and people are encouraged to wear purple in honor of the teenagers who have taken their own lives in recent weeks because of anti-LGBT bullying. Why the color purple? Well…the color purple symbolizes ‘spirit’ on the rainbow flag. We should take a stand against gay bullying and wear purple to remember the those who have taken their lives.
When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad.
These are some my favorite things (in no particular order):
1. sunny days
2. flip flops
3. spending time with friends and family
4. sparkly things
6. my car
7. my dogs
9. ice cream
10. and of course one of my top favorites and the reason I decided to write this blog, is the the color GREEN!
I practically love everything that is the color green…This little girl is not only sooo cute but has the most amazing green eyes and the dress she wore, with the wonderful green outdoor setting was perfect! Green and purple is one of the best color combinations out there and these photos really exemplify that. For moms and dads out there getting ready for their family shoot, keep in mind good color combinations when it comes to getting you and your kids dressed. Try and stay in the same box of crayon colors and refrain from cartoon characters or any image that would be distracting. And remember, letting them wear one of their favorite things might not be a bad idea!
