Star Spangled Sprinkles

Ok, so just as a side note, I, Michelle, have written the last couple of posts. So just to be clear, I am the one who loves Randy our UPS guy, not Kim. Kim is still very much in love with her fiance :)

But back to what we’re really here to talk about…sprinkles! There’s really no better time to talk about them than July 4th weekend or…my birthday :) (but that’s a long time from now). I’ve always loved sweets and anything small and colorful, making sprinkles the perfect decorative and delicious addition to the small treat. They’re perfect to use as small bursts of color on your holiday desserts.

I woke up this morning at 8am and the first thing that came to my mind were cupcakes. I had the biggest craving for them. So I couldn’t help going to Giant Eagle and getting a half dozen vanilla cupcakes with RED, WHITE, and BLUE sprinkles. Not to mention a tall non fat peppermint mocha with no whip :) Who could ask for a better start to a Friday morning. Oh and it was bright and sunny. Not to often we start days like that in Cleveland.  As the day went on and I had my fill of sugar, I came to find out that I wasn’t the only one that loved cupcakes, so did little J who by the why isn’t even 1 yet! We hope you have a fun and safe holiday weekend! And don’t forget the SPRINKLES!

What it means to be a photographer…


Pronunciation: \fə-ˈtä-grə-fər\

Date: 1847

Definition of a photographer: They capture some of your most precious moments. They paint a picture or tell a story through images. A photographer records memories, events, time and people through a camera. Photographers capture life as it happens.

What is stated above is all true but the one characteristic that is required to be an excellent photographer is PATIENCE. Whether you have a nervous bride, a terrified child, parents who feel the need to impose, patience is key. Sometimes life happens too fast and sometimes you just have to wait for that right moment. But when the stage is set and everyone is calm and that shutter goes off you know that you’ve captured that perfect moment.

Kimberly Ponsky:

Pronunciation: KIM-bur-lee Pon-skee

Date: 2010 (no she’s not a baby) but this is who she is now

Yup. I’m defining my boss. (biting my lip) She of course possesses many other positive traits but when it comes to photography she has more patience then anyone I know. Kids come in here crying and screaming and yet she approaches each and every child and shoot with a warm smile. She is ready to take on the challenge. And more often then not, parents almost always apologize for their child who seemed to be uncooperative during the shoot and are a bit unsure whether even one good photo was captured. Yet Kim, always responds with confidence letting them know that there will be many great photos to choose from. She’s right. She knows. She’s patient.

So don’t worry. Be happy. Sometimes even the tears are cute…they capture the moment. Kim captures the moment and the moments, even the crying ones, are what tell the story.

Sisterly Love

These 2 little girls were precious…especially together! Older sister B did a great job with her little sister’s newborn shoot. We were even able to get a few great photos of just her as you will see in the video below.

Happy Birthday Hannah!

“Kim Ponsky Photography, this is Michelle”. That’s me. I’m the one who probably answers your phone calls. I am also the studio manager here. When I’m not answering the phones, editing or ordering photos or making albums, I love getting a chance to play with all the cute kids that come into the studio. Hannah has come to the studio several times and has become one of my new best buds. She recently came in for her 1 year birthday photo shoot and we had a blast! Im so glad that I was able to partake in the celebration. Hopefully this video will give you a sense of how much fun we had…come see me soon!

Me and Hannah…she wasn’t sure if she liked the cake, so I thought I would offer some encouragement!

New Camera… A Whole New World!

As the world of photography expands further into the digital world, the role of a photographer is moving right along with it.  No longer are we glued to a tripod, under a velvet hood with hour-long exposures.  We can now capture images practically in the dark with just the snap of a shutter.  And, as photographic technology takes it a step further, we photographers are now entering a new and exciting world… VIDEO!  My new camera, the Nikon D3s not only surpasses my previous D3 in its image capture abilities, but now adds HD video to its list of attributes.  I’m so excited to now be able to offer clients– kids, families, weddings and bar mitzvahs, alike– a more complete photographic experience.  Adding film, captured with a look and feel consistent with the still images really adds somthing special.

Now tasked with learning how to incorporate this new feature… the fusion of images, moving and still, I turned to my go-to guy… my 6-month old nephew “Baby J” to be my guinea pig… What do you think??
