If you are like everyone else, you are waiting (not so) patiently for spring. I’m definitely looking forward to spring and some family portraits I have scheduled. In the meantime, this month I did a few mitzvahs (a couple of houses and some headshots too). I photographed Bella and her family. Bella was a natural in front of the camera and we had a great time….OK maybe she had a great time at City Museum crawling in all those tight spaces, I on the other hand simply waited until she and her friends surfaced above ground, thank you very much! Bella is smart and kind and she has a lot of great friends who love her bunches. I did enjoy seeing many of my own friends at her party too. I also got to photograph Mitch. Mitch has a smile and demeanor that will melt your heart. And talk about a fun young man! Of course after meeting his mom, dad and brother and watching all those stealth dance moves, I see the apple doesn’t fall far from that tree. You guys rock!
So now I will head off to North Carolina to visit my family for a much needed vacation and well, to photograph a corporate portrait session along with a portrait of a wonderful musician…my niece! So look out North Carolina here I come. I love my job!

I hadn’t met Shoshana until the morning of her formals at B’nai Amoona. But she was so relaxed in front of the camera; it took no time to get rolling. I kept thinking to myself, ‘she has the sweetest, softest smile I think I have seen in a long time’. The more and more I photographed her and her family the more I realized it was because she smiled with her eyes, all the way down to her soul. She is truly beautiful inside and out. And she has obviously been a great influence on her little sister, Ellory, because she was just as sweet, kind and patient. I am so happy I got to meet and photograph this fabulous family!
Enjoy the sneak peek. And leave a comment here on the blog to let them know how much you like their smiles too!
Adam was bar mitzvahed this weekend at Shaare Emeth. He made his family proud. His hard work paid off; he did a great job…and he sounded good too! I listened to his mom and dad when they blessed him and then the Rabbi as well. They all spoke of Adam’s kindness and consideration for others. I watched Adam at his luncheon right after services as well as his party that evening at Demolition Ball and you know what I saw? They were all absolutely right. Adam is so kind, caring and considerate to his family and friends. He is also a great model for his brother Jeremy and sister Ellie, they are equally as kind. Adam will surely do a lot of amazing things for our world! So here is a sneak peak of some of Adam’s images. Black and White is not dead! I chose to make this post all black and white images because I feel like in the new digital era, we forget the beauty of film and specifically black and white images. Something about these particular images said a lot to me, and they cried out for black and white. Enjoy! And call me, let’s make some black and white images for you too!
