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?!
Tomorrow will be a bit chilly (43 degrees), but it will be sunny & beautiful! That means, our 25-minute outdoor “mini” photo sessions will be held at their planned location of Horseshoe Lake, in Shaker Heights. Whether it’s just the kids, or the whole family, we’re gonna’ have a great day of fall photos!! We did have 2 cancellations, so we have those open slots– tell your friends! Call the studio 216.229.7427 or email us if you want to snag one of them!
Not too many of these days left… Don’t miss out!
We’ll see YOU tomorrow!!!
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!!!
This time of the year is a photographer’s dream– the changing colors of the trees, the carpet of fallen leaves on the grass, and when that gets mixed with the 70-degree weather we’ve been blessed with around here lately, what we have is a outdoor photography playground! Yesterday was no exception– I got to go out and photograph good friends of my husband and mine (and their kids of course)! We went to one of my favorite locations for child and family photography… Horseshoe Lake in Shaker Heights. There’s so much for the kids to climb on and play with, and such pretty scenery for great photo backdrops! To me, the best pictures happen when the kids have no idea that they’re being photographed… when they can be themselves, and have fun. That’s when you get the pictures that remind you of THEM! Here are just three of my favorite shots of my little friends and our photo play-date yesterday!
Ok everyone, you’ve done it…you made us feel bad that we didn’t have mini sessions set up for this fall, so we picked our ONLY weekend day before the holidays that we have open, to schedule mini sessions! The big day is Saturday, November 20, 2010 and will take place at Horseshoe Lake in Shaker Heights. As stated above, they will remain outdoors unless it rains or there is a major blizzard.
Here are the details:
$100 for 25 minute session
25 Minute Mini Session includes:
- Mix of individual and/or family shots
- Images posted to an online gallery for you to proof and order ala carte prints

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a session please either call us at 216.229.7427 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you! (sooner rather than later, since I promise you…these will sell out fast!)
