Music Man

Well he’s not quite a man, but he is a big fan of music. His mom, who is an amazing woman, has enrolled Little V in music classes to expose him to different instruments and introduce him to other kids his age. He doesn’t always have the biggest smiles, but he sure gives us something to smile about. However, his mom is always the one behind the most creative photo shoots. We don’t provide props here at our studio, but we always allow our clients to bring in whatever they like. In this case, Little V’s mom brought in a music stand, a trumpet and a recorder, not to mention she dressed him in the cutest outfit! (she always does) This little boy doesn’t step out of the house in anything but the best!  Like I said he has a great mommy and we commend her for all she does for him, he is a lucky boy! And how do you like at his Converse shoes with that outfit?! Perfect!

Step by Step

Step by step
Day by day
A fresh start over
A different hand to play
The deeper we fall
The stronger we stay
And we’ll be better
The second time around

Ok I’m done singing…this really has nothing to do with the show…this is our NEW package!!! We have always thought of creating a package that includes a photo shoot for every month of a babies life until they are 1 and now we’ve finally made it happen! Here are the details:

Studio sessions at each of the first 12 months of the baby’s life (newborn through 1 year). Newborn and 1 year sessions are full length, while the interim sessions are briefer half-sessions. At the end of the year, you’ll watch your child grow up before your eyes through a DVD slideshow, a hard-cover book filled with images from the sessions, and a 12-month calendar for the year to come.

We are SUPER excited about it so hurry up and get their pictures, because before you know it, they’ll be “Soooo big!”

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.
