Collaborative shoots are truly some of my favorites, and Adam’s bar mitzvah portrait session was truly a collaborative effort between Adam, his parents, and myself. His dad actually works in the Wynwood neighborhood in Miami and was really able to show me around. I’m looking forward to photographing his bar mitzvah in October; a basketball tournament to say the least! 100% out of the box and I love it!
Speaking of Wynwood in Miami, we will be offering one afternoon of sessions in Wynwood on October 20. 30 minutes in an amazing urban backdrop. $175. The colors and textures are fabulous and translate into fabulous pieces of art for your home. Email or call the studio for more information.
I have known Cassidy since she was 18 months old. She was as spunky then as she is now. Her family really holds a special place in my heart. It’s an honor and a privilege to photograph her bat mitzvah this December. Her bat mitzvah portrait session will be used to create a fabulous custom sign in book to display at her party!
Can’t help but share a few images from Molly’s portrait session for her upcoming bat mitzvah. This is only the first of two locations were visited. Have to save something for a bit of a surprise at her party.
This is Brett. We spent some time together as I photographed him in preparation for his upcoming bar mitzvah. We hit a number of different locations as I captured him doing what he loves most; skateboarding, basketball, and lacrosse. He’s extremely well rounded. Athletic, smart, and from what you can see incredibly cute.
Meet Abby! She’s beautiful, smart, talented, musical and a bat mitzvah girl!! We used these portraits to create a completely custom sign in book. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t take any real pictures of it. The sign in book is really a great memento of a special event that’s easy to keep and remember forever.
till next time…
