Since I started working here, I’ve come to learn the various developmental stages of the different age groups that come through our studio. Some are bundled in their parent’s arms without a peep, some are crawling around our studio floor mumbling their own gibberish, and others, are running non stop up and down the our entry ramp screaming. Their physical and language skills are across the board and yet no matter what stage they’re at they all are so cute in their own unique way. I came across this video on youtube and it absolutely blew me away. Most 2 year olds form 2-3 word sentences, but this little boy’s language skills are far beyond anything I have ever heard. His memory and expressions are amazing. There is honestly nothing more I can say, so you’ll just have to see for yourself!
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!
It all started 1 year 9 months and 5 days ago on October 7, 2008. Kim Ponsky Photography became Kim Ponsky +1. This is how we met…
My best friend asked me to come over her house the day before she was moving back to college. We have been long time friends and I have known her and her family for about 20 years. A long time when you’re only 24. So of course I’ve known her older brother for just as long. Well I guess not as well as I know everyone else in the family because for the most part, he wanted NOTHING to do with his younger sister and her friends. But it’s ok, I forgive him. We’ve all grown up since then and have become good friends. Back to the story, I was currently a recent grad and was looking for a job. His girlfriend, none other than Kim, was there that day to help out. She seemed pretty cool and offered me the opportunity to work part time at her studio. She said the holiday season would be approaching and she could use an extra hand. A couple days later, I decided to give her a call and let her know I was interested. She had me come down to the studio to check it out. I have to say that most of our conversation was pretty casual and very little of it had to do with me working there. We talked for some time, just about life and such, as if we have been friends for years. I knew then that she was going to be a pretty cool boss (I know she hates when I use that word but at the end of the day she still has to write me a paycheck). She told me that she would probably only need my assistance for a few days during the week and only for a few months. Well from the day I started, I’ve been working 5 days a week, roughly 40 hours and every week since October 2008. And the rest is history…
I enjoy coming to work everyday because I know something new awaits me. Kim has always been fun to work with and even though she’s my boss she is also my friend. Thanks Kim for being so kind and generous to me in so many ways. I couldn’t ask for a better person to work with.
No, I didn’t become a photographer because I failed my grammar tests in school…!
It’s been said “It’s double the giggles and double the grins, and double the trouble if you’re blessed with twins.” Well, that may be true, unless you’re a photographer tasked with editing photos of adorable identical twins like Mr. N and Mr. B! During the twins’ photo shoot in our studio, some creative strategy had to be enacted to get those nearly two-year-olds to stay in the studio, let alone in the vicinity of one another– Elmo singing on my iPhone, held between my knees while I held the camera, & sea shells I brought back from a vacation last winter both did the trick! That was the easy part… then came editing the photos. I had to make sure I didn’t give their mom pictures of only one little guy (but come on… would she really know the difference?? :-) just kidding!!) In the group photos of the brothers together, there was no problem telling them apart… Mr. B is a bit bigger! But in their individual portraits?? Oh, good luck! All of us in the office gathered around the computer for what felt like hours until we found what we were looking for… A little bruise on Mr. N’s forehead, and a tiny little blemish next to Mr. B’s right eye– thank goodness!! They’re not so identical after all! All I know is that those little guys had us laughing long after the photo shoot was over– they were so adorable, so expressive, and just so cute!! Two-year-olds can definitely run the show, but they are so much fun! Hopefully Mr. B and Mr. N will come visit us again soon!
We’re pleased to say that Kim Ponsky Photography has just been awarded the 2009 Best of Business for Cleveland Portrait Photography!
Thanks for making us one of the top photo studios in the Cleveland area!
