We were blessed with Hannah's awesome smile during this photo session.
When she smiles it just lights up the room!

Hannah is beginning her modeling career and came to us for a portfolio builder. She came with a bunch of outfits and a great furry hooded coat. We had a lot of fun with this session! You can view more photographs from her session in her gallery on our website.

This next image is one of my favorites from the session!

love the hair!


The Black and Whites really let her soul shine through...

Hannah was so easy to work with, we'd love to have her come back into the Studio another time!

Bat Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Photography

Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Photography

We offer a variety of packages for your occasion.

A new level of soul, neshama, comes into awareness at Bar/Bat Mitzvah time. This can be captured at the rehearsal, in your home, in our studio and/or at your party. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a time of beauty, respect and wonder filled with tradition and peace, which unfolds throughout that special day.

Your day will be filled with beautiful "Emotional Moments" that you will never experience again in your life. Those "Moments" are what we are driven to capture for you. Your child's special day will be filled with unforgettable moments that you'll want to relive and share…Mom dancing with her son, thinking “wasn’t he just born”, where did the time go? Or Daddy dancing with his little girl, hoping to see her under the Chuppa some day. After the Bar/Bat Mitzvah party is over, the moments remembered will be shared, remembered and relived through the photographs and albums that last for generations…

Often photography is not allowed during actual ceremony at the Shabbat service. By coming to the rehearsal we can capture photographs of great meaning - your child on the bima, reading from the scrolls, surrounded by parents and rabbi. This run-through, under the supervision of the rabbi, is generally held during the week prior to the date of the service and, by documenting it, we will give you a wonderful record of the emotions of this great occasion. We can also take formal portraits of the bar mitzvah boy or bat mitzvah girl with family in all of the combinations you will want. Immediate family, extended family, grandparents alone - all in combination with the star of the day.

Scotland Almost 7 months old

We have been photographing Scotland since she was just a twinkle in her parent's eye, LOL (well even before then -- we photographed their engagement with their dog, their wedding, their maternity, their newborn and now this absolutely beautiful baby!).

Scotland is almost 7 months old in these photographs and she is just the most adorable baby!
We had such a great session, getting to use so many different props. You can view more images from this spectacular sesion here in this gallery on our website.

We just got this suitcase in, so I was sooo excited when I saw that her Mom was clairvoyant and brought her dressed in a color coordinated outfit for the two first setups!
and then she just sat right there in the midst of all those teddy bears looking adorable.

The washbowl is new too. The pearls were brought in by her Mom, we have photographed Scotland with these pearls since she was a newborn (well before she was born actually, in the maternity session too!)

I just love Black and white for babies, black and white and color works too!

You can see what an absolutely awesome session we had -- we go to try out so many props and just bring out th personality in this beautiful little girl.

Cannot wait for the next session, when Scotland can stand but cannot yet walk!

Sneak Peak Ashlie

Wow, did we have fun with Ashie, a model. It was a pleasure to work with her -- she was on time, brought lots of clothes and props and was a professional but also just a great person to work with!

Here is a sneak peak of a few images form her session, we will be posting more later!

At one point during her session Ashlie mentioned that she would like something for a CD cover and when I saw this image with her hair being blown by the fan I knew that I had to crop it square!

I have had an image like this next one in my head for a while -- I was very happy when she showed me this purple scarf!

Pure at Heart

These "pure at heart" sessions are simply wonderful!

"Pure at Heart" portrait sessions -- You pray and rejoice every day so why not capture the purity of your children today. We have a wide variety of quotes to choose from , or pick your own.

Of course we also offer Communion and Confirmation portrait sessions, either in the Studio or at your place of worship.

First Communion -- Mark this rite of passage with a photographic momento as your child grows in their faith. The First Communion is a first in many ways. As the first formal event in your child's life it marks the beginning of a life of good character. Honor your son or daughter's first occasion to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist with a professionally crafted portrait. This First Communion portrait is especially treasured by the parents, showing the innocence and hope for the future in their young faces.

Confirmation -- Honor your son or daughter's first occasion to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist with a  professionally crafted portrait to mark their 1st formal opportunity to publicly confess Christ as their Lord and Saviour as an adult in the eyes of the church. This is the Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah (coming of age) of the Christian church.
