Nothing but Smiles

Don’t get me wrong, I love photographing kids of all ages…but there’s something about six-month olds that hold a special place in my heart. Between the nonstop laughter, the gigantic grins, and the adorable facial expressions, Cole sure knew how to light up a room. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot. Enjoy! Ghannoum_08

Studio Mini Sessions Are Almost Here!

“A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.”  ~Eudora Welty

If you know anything about Kim and her photography you know that quote is true! Whether Kim has 10 minutes or 10 hours she always seems to be able to capture the essence of the person she is photographing!  Her candid portraiture is unparalleled!

Why not experience it yourself by booking one of our Studio Mini Sessions?  Times are filling up fast so if it’s been on your mind give us a call!


What: Kim Ponsky Photography – Studio Mini Sessions

Where: Our Studio (2026 Murray Hill Rd, Suite #3, Cleveland, 44106)

When: Thursday July 19 & Friday July 20!

How It Works:  For all of our repeat clients… you know how this all works! But let’s break it down for the newbies!

  • $15 covers a 10 minute mini session with our white studio backdrop and one 5×7 of Kim’s Pick (Kim will choose her favorite shot to edit and print.)
  • Additional 5x7s of Kim’s Pick will be sold at $15 each so why not pick up a few extras for Grandmas and Grandpas
  • Additional prints of different images can be purchased at regular price (see the “Investment” tab above for more details)
  • Have multiple children?  No problem!  We can block out 10 minutes per child or group shot at $15 each!
  • If you’re interested in having a group shot make sure that outfits coordinate.  This doesn’t mean they should match, but colors should mesh (bright colors with bright colors OR pastels with pastels).
  • Just a friendly reminder to remove tattoos, milk mustaches, and anything that’s “snot” wanted in your photos ;-)

To book your Studio Mini Session just give me a call at 216.229.7427 or email me at:!

Half way there

6 months, 26 weeks, 185 days, no matter how you look at it, July 4th marks the midway mark until the end of the year. For those of you who celebrate Christmas in July or just plan way ahead, 6 months is not that much time until we all start thinking about holiday celebrations, cards and gifts. Time truly flies when we’re having fun here in Cleveland on those seldom sunny days. We all know that we have to cherish and enjoy each and every nice day because just around the corner snowflakes will be falling and we’ll find ourselves inside our homes freezing. Ok ok, enough of all the dreary and sad ranting. My point is that 6 months from now Christmas will be here and when it comes to scheduling a photo shoot, we want you to start thinking about it now. Kim will be out of town for the majority of October so our fall sessions are booking quickly. Even if you would like to have some blue sky photos for those oh so desired holiday cards, call us today and we’ll do our best to talk the rain gods out of putting a damper on your day.

Boo or Baaah? : Cleveland Children’s Photographer

So I’ve been waiting to write this blog post ALL month! I love Halloween but I don’t know if I love it as much as Kim. It is Kim’s FAVORITE holiday, it’s also probably why she loves the color orange so much. We even threw her a surprise Halloween themed birthday party last year. We were all in costume, the house was entirely decorated with skeletons, black cats, ghosts, pumpkins, spider cupcakes and we even had fun Halloween temporary tattoos!

Despite the Celtic festival from which Halloween originated, it is a holiday that we ALL, or at least everyone, regardless of age, should have fun dressing up! Trick or treating can be left for the kiddos but hey, if you even look a bit younger for your age like me, why not get some free candy from the neighbors too! Every year, it seems as though everyone scrambles to try and find a costume. Sometimes I wonder what the big deal is, but once I see such a variety of unique costumes that people come up with I’m amazed and inspired for the coming year. I didn’t grow up in an American family, but luckily Halloween was one of the few American cultural activities I did participate in every year. In previous years I have been: Minnie Mouse, a clown, a pumpkin, a witch, an American Indian, a princess (mom made that costume that year :)), a french maid, a boxer (not the dog), an 80’s girl, salt and pepper shakers (I was salt), and this year…I will be a nurse :) Halloween is a day, or even a weekend like this year, that gives us the opportunity to go wild and dress in something you never would otherwise. So be creative!

So you must be wondering why I decided to title the post “Boo or Bah?”. Well if you take a look at the photo below, I don’t think I have to explain. Once I saw this photo Kim took, I knew I had to somehow incorporate Baaah into the title. The mom of these 2 ADORABLE boys dresses them up every year and has Kim come out to their home to capture the kid’s one of kind costumes. So this year while everyone else might be screaming “Boo!”, these 2 boys will be saying “Baaah, Baaah”! No matter what phrase you choose to go with while running up to each doorstep this Halloween, remember to be safe, have fun and make sure you get a lot of CANDY!!!

Happy Halloween!
