From The Horse’s Mouth

A recent shoot at the White North Stables in Hunting Valley had us horsing around and having fun while capturing the beauty of a girl and her trusted friend.

Before Ellie left for college this fall her dad gifted her with a photo session with her beloved horse, Sky. These images represent the bond that these these two have formed through their daily interactions and commemorate this special moment in time.

It was truly a special experience to watch dad and daughter talk through the process of selecting images. The guiding principal that won out was what Ellie would like to look at with her own family twenty years from now. They settled on several unique works of art from a stunning canvas wall arrangement to a custom fine art print which are sure to bring many years of joy.

Do you have a unique bond or special moment you’d like to look back at twenty years from now too? Call us to put it into pictures. 216.229.PICS (7427)

New Parenting Series Begins With CPR!

We’re excited to announce that Kim Ponsky Photography is teaming up with Jessica Zuik, RN (otherwise known as the CLE Mommy RN) to bring our valued clients a monthly parenting series. Our first class, American Heart Association Infant and Child CPR, with be held at our new studio on Wednesday, September 27th from 7-8:30 pm. The cost is $30 per person. CPR is arguably THE MOST IMPORTANT class you can take as a parent, grandparent, babysitter/caregiver… and Jessica will will teach you everything you need to know in case of an emergency. Space is limited so call now to reserve your spot.  216.229.PICS (7427).

Some stories from Jessica…

1. Recently I taught CPR to a family with a premature newborn. Within days of being discharged from the hospital this child developed a cold. Later that day mom went to pick him up from the crib and noticed he was blue and not breathing. Immediately she started CPR just like she was taught. EMS came, the child was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. During her child’s admission she sought me out to thank me for making her feel confident that she could perform CPR. Whenever I teach CPR we always hope that parents never have to use the skill…but it is an essential tool to have for ANYONE. Unfortunately for this mama her worst nightmare came true and she had to use CPR on her infant. A couple weeks later her child was discharged and is currently doing GREAT! All because she acted quickly and confidently in that emergency.

2. My sister’s boss and his wife were over seas last year in a remote town. Unfortunately her boss had a heart attack. The town did not have the equivalent of our 911 system. His wife, with the help of some bystanders, was able to perform CPR on him for 45 minutes until the emergency response team arrived. One week later he was talking to my sister on the phone from his hospital room in a nearby city. His only complication was a good amount of pain from all of the broken ribs he suffered during the compressions. Shortly after returning home he returned back to work without any issues.

We hope you’ll join us for our first of many classes with Jessica. Some other possible topics are:

-Healthy Child vs. Sick Child: When to seek medical attention

-Healthy Development/Meeting Milestones: When to seek professional advice.

-Allergies and Feeding Issues

Have a suggestion about a topic you’d like to learn more about? Give us a ring or email us at studio@kimponskyphoto.com.

We hope to see you on September 27th. For more information or to register give us a call 216.229.PICS (7427).
