Corporate Headshot, Please!

How’s your corporate headshot looking? A corporate headshot should be updated every year or two. People want to see who you are right now, not when you first launched your career in your 30s! You and your business are keeping up with the times so why shouldn’t your headshot be current? Your professional headshot can be used for corporate marketing and promotions, websites, business cards, email blasts, brochures, magazines, social media usage like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. You name it, it’s good to have! If you’re looking at your corporate headshot and thinking about how long ago it was taken, give us a call here at the studio. Most likely, you need an updated one-your biz is worth it. We are professional headshot photographers: 216.229.7427.

Senior Portrait Photography

Senior year is going to fly by and there will be a lot of lasts this year. Everybody is here to celebrate you-the you you are right now! It’s kind of a big deal. Actually, you are kind of a big deal this year! You’re on the brink of making some big decisions-not necessarily the biggest decisions of your life-but these upcoming years will shape the person you become, just like these last three years in high school have shaped the person you are today.

Now is the time to start thinking about your senior portraits. It’s a decision you and your parents, and perhaps even your grandparents, help you make. Senior portraits are the perfect reason to get some great photos of you at this point in life. They can be fun, light, serious-it doesn’t matter-it’s YOU!

Photographing seniors is one of our favorite things to do here at Kim Ponsky Photography. We love to go around the city of Cleveland and shoot at iconic spots in the 216. And if you’re thinking about an outdoor natural look, we know exactly where to take you for beautiful scenery.

If you think we’re right for you, we’d love to sit down, chat, and get to know you and your style. After all, we want you to love your photos the most! Take a look at some of our Seniors we’ve worked with in the past.

Holy Photos!

Many families have formal professional photographs taken to commemorate a child making his/her First Holy Communion. We, at Kim Ponsky Photography, would be honored to photograph your son or daughter receiving this third of seven sacraments. We know it is an important tradition for Catholic families and individuals and are here to make this moment last forever.

We’re happy to come to you! Our photographers, Kim Ponsky and Gabriella Gallo, have photographed many children at the church where they are parishioners, or even a church of distinction in the Cleveland area where one might not be a member but loves the feel and look of the church itself. Another option is taking photos of your child at your own home! Some children are just more comfortable in a familiar setting and are more themselves. If you don’t want a church setting or you’re not in the mood to tidy up your home, you’re always welcome here at our photography studio.

Just look at some of the boys and girls we photographed donning their classic suits and white fancy dresses in preparation to receive the Eucharist. Simply stunning and timeless.

Contact us today book your First Holy Community photoshoot with Kim Ponsky Photography. 216.229.7427.

We call it Flowtography, but it’s a Yoga Photoshoot!

So, what makes a good yoga photo-you know, the ones you see on the cover of Yoga Journal standing in line at Whole Foods?

If you’re a yoga instructor, you definitely know what some bad ones look like! They’ve landed in your email after a yoga photoshoot you were really psyched about until you saw the outcome. Then, you proceed to call your fellow yoga teachers to ask them, “Ummm…is this what I look like in real life”?

The answer is, “YES”, this is what you look like in real life, BUT…the photographer doesn’t know how to shoot yoga portraits. Now, if you have a sympathetic studio owner, s/he understands that not all photos are meant to be published and provides you with options to pick some you like. And for the rest of the photos, well, ask to send them away into a galaxy far far away…

The bottom line is that not all photographers are yoga photographers. We, at Kim Ponsky Photography, happen to be!

Our photographers, Kim and Gabriella, understand lighting. We know how to highlight and emphasize the shape of the body in a flattering way. Hello…did you see my photos on Facebook? Even better, check out Taryn’s below! Taryn’s yoga portraits look like none other. They’re dramatic and more of a fine art look than the traditional yoga photos you see on every studio website. Kim had this vision of what a beautiful yoga photo entails, and we’re putting it into practice. Wink.

Unlike any other photographer in the area, we offer a reflective surface. This is big for two reasons! An acrylic surface adds another element to the image itself, and it provides a “grip” similar to a yoga mat for the yogi to do postures. Other photographers offer paper to stand on or to invert-this makes holding a pose very tough.

And lastly, you need a person familiar with alignment to coach the yogi. Basically, you need me! Forget fixing the hair and pulling down the shirt, we want you to look bomb! I am not too shy to tell you where to put your foot, how to raise your arm, to engage udayana banda for the fifteenth time, and to scrap a posture altogether because that one is just not photographing well.

Are we expensive? YES.      Are we worth every penny? YES.      Are we right here in Cleveland? YES.

So, say “YES” to stunning yoga portraits because we’re ready for you and you want them.

Flowtography sessions are being offered at special rates up through April. After that, we’re on to our outdoor Spring Mini Session! Call us to book: 216-229-7427.
