Bar and Bat Mitzvah

Adventure Land Bat Mitzvah Portraits

It’s so important to capture the milestone of a Bat or Bar Mitzvah…it’s a meaningful moment for a young person and for their families. It’s rich with traditional and memories, and often emotional for parents and grandparents to witness something so special. I myself have shed a few tears at these wonderful ceremonies or parties, […]

Fancy Beach Photos

My goodness. Another family’s plans for a bat mitzvah was cancelled due to COVID. When will it end?! As Ross on F.R.I.E.N.D.S reminded us, we “piv-ot!” This was not the original plan, but mom sure did her thing, and after all the many months she spent planning were cancelled last minute, she planned a brand […]

Special Occasion Family Portraits at the Bailey Arboretum

Well, after months and months of elastic waist pants, old tee-shirts and bedroom slippers, I think we are all ready to get dressed up and feel a little glamorous, right? There is not a better occasion to celebrate with family than a bat mitzvah, and this family has been anticipating this day for many months. […]

Fourteen Year Old Guy Portraits

When you first have children, you assume you will love your own children to pieces, but what no one tells you about becoming a mother or a part of a parenting community, is how much love you will have for the other children in your life as well. I have been so lucky to watch […]

Zoom-Mitzvah Celebration Photos

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s how to treasure the people in our lives and the moments that come with them, and to be creative! This shoot really encompassed both of those things. This was a bat mitzvah that was certainly not what the family had envisioned, but they made the most of […]

This guy was about to celebrate such a special day, and his mom wanted some special portraits to display at the party and celebration. Well, I was more than happy to oblige. We had so much fun together creating these images, and this guy and his brother were a dream to work with. I have […]

Robert Moses State Park Family Photos

The beauty of the ocean always gives me life, but this year, it is especially true. The craziness of what we are going through as a country is beyond stressful, and has been taxing emotionally and physically. Family time outside, in the fresh air, and with Mother Earth’s energy flowing from the water, is just […]

Bat Mitvah Teen Beach Portraits

There is nothing like a photo session at the beach at sunset. I will never get tired of them, they seriously never get old! In fact, it feels brand new, especially when I get to work with a stunning young lady who is totally into the process. She made it so fun! Celebrating her bat […]

Bat Mitzvah Portraits in Long Island

I don’t know about you, but I certainly did not have the poise and elegance of this young lady when I was thirteen, and that’s putting it lightly. Not cute would be the best way to describe the photos of me at this age, but not so for this beautiful girl. She is so mature […]
