Hello!  My name is Corey Ann and I'm a photographer based in North Canton, Ohio serving all of Northeast Ohio.  I have been taking pictures as long as I can remember but have been doing this professionally since 2007.  Professionally I focus on wedding (both local and destination weddings) and casual portraiture photography but I also harbor a deep love for landscape photography.  On this blog you will find a mixed bag of essentially what I am in my professional and personal life!

Animals: I’m the Squirrel Lady

♥ I mentioned this before on this blog but I’m a squirrel lover. They are just too darned cute.

♥ This one that I’m blogging about today I’ve nicknamed Crooked because its head is on crooked. He even runs crooked due to this.

♥ I have a soft spot for misfits.

♥ He ran up Chris’s leg one day when he was sitting on our patio. He said hi and jumped down. Hilarious!

♥ I can feed this guy from my hand. He’s super sweet and gentle when he takes the food. It’s the only way I can ensure he’ll get the nuts b/c the other squirrels pick on him and beat him up if he tries to get food.

♥ I also root for the underdog and I can’t stand bullies.

♥ So with Crooked being a misfit, the underdog AND bullied I just love him to bits.

♥ You are all probably gaping at your screen but this isn’t abnormal for me. I grew up with this being “normal.” :)

♥ Growing up, Dad would always have random wild animals as outdoor pets. Sometimes because they just randomly friended him or because they were hurt and he was helping nurse them back to health. I remember having a baby skunk, snakes and a grackle at random times in my life. There’s also the incident that scared my mother half to death, when my Dad had me hold a baby opossum. She nearly fainted. I should mention that he grew up working for a vet’s office so he knew how to handle wild animals. He did have a special touch though and they always seemed to know he was a kindred spirit.

♥ Case in point, not long before my Dad died, he was sitting outside by the chimnea enjoying the fire. His eyesight wasn’t good due to the stroke he’d had. At this time we had an outdoor cat (Kitty who is now an indoor cat) so when this animal came and started winding around his legs, he assumed it was Kitty. He and her had a “tail pulling” game they’d play so he’d yank on her tail, the animal went back to winding and being pet etc. After about 10 minutes or so the animal came up and curled up at his feet. He then realized it was a skunk, not Kitty. I love this story for so many reasons but I think it’s a riot how the skunk kept coming back for more tail pulling and that my Dad innocently went about pulling a skunks tail.

♥ It’s Monday and I feel that today just called for squirrels.

♥ Please comment for cans for the hungry this holiday season!!!

December 7, 2009 - 4:42 pm Sarah - That is one fat squirrel!!

December 7, 2009 - 4:47 pm Corey - He's actually one of the smaller ones that are orange/brown that are around the house! There is a HUGE one that is a meanie and beats the other squirrels up. I don't know why but the brown/orange ones tend to be a LOT bigger than the grey and black ones here.

December 7, 2009 - 4:47 pm heidzilla - a grackle? gotta google that...

December 7, 2009 - 5:37 pm Darla - He is sooooo freakin cute!!!

December 8, 2009 - 1:32 am Isabel - While I love your work shots, I think I love these random ones even more, when you just go out and shoot whatever it is you happen to see. :)

December 8, 2009 - 6:34 pm Christen - I love squirrels, too! That one is particularly adorable.

December 9, 2009 - 11:35 am Val - Aww, he's cute...and I am scared of squirrels lol1

December 9, 2009 - 1:16 pm Angela - I also share the love, which is why I find this picture so funny http://www.guzer.com/pictures/squirrel-wedding-cake.php.

Family: The Sedlak Family

♥ Remember!! Comment for cans!!!!!!!!!!!! Every comment = 1 can of food donated to a needy family this Christmas!!

♥ I have known Jen and Joe since first grade (holy cow that was a long time ago!).

♥ They started dating in third grade. Yes you read that right… THIRD GRADE (that is if memory serves me correctly, it could have been earlier).

♥ While they did break up off and on through the years of school, they always seemed to find their way back to one another.

♥ Now they have been married for 10 + years and have 3 beautiful kids.

♥ Thanks to the power of Facebook we reconnected and they hired me for their holiday family session.

♥ It’s a neat and very bizarre experience to photograph kids at ages that I remember their parents being!

Before heading out to the park, we did a quick few formal shots at their home. I was really happy to see that their dog even behaved and looked at the camera for this shot!

The final image is yet another favorite from the session. He was pretty much done with picture taking for the day and just wanted to play on the tire swing. I caught this image of him while he was rising and falling on the swing. It ended up being by far my favorite of the kids individually.

December 5, 2009 - 12:46 am Darla - I absolutly LOVE these!

December 5, 2009 - 7:56 am Mark W. - Great shots Corey and a great looking family!

December 5, 2009 - 5:45 pm Val - Once again, you've outdone yourself! And we will never get tired of the bridge...LOL!
