Welcome to my journal. Here you will find entries of recent and personal work, stories on teaching photography, ideas, studies and more.
I have known the Smith family since Brigette and I met when our children were 6 months old. The parents are writers and artists and their son Wolfie an athlete. You name it he plays it from football to basketball, to baseball. The most recent photo session was out in Brooklyn where they recently moved. Below are a selection of the "best of" from different photo sessions over the years. Enjoy!
Cha Cha's Bat Mitzvah, November 4th at the Helen Mills Theater on 26th Street
The service was led by her cousin Rabbi Caren who mentored Cha Cha over the past year. Family and friends filled the theater including her Grandma and Great Aunt along with many Nightingale school friends. Cha Cha did a wonderful job reading from the Torah and explaining her mitzvah project. Once the afternoon service finished the guests moved upstairs to a big loft party space. Cha Cha led Havdala which signals the end of shabbat. Let the festivities begin with cocktails, dancing and a buffet dinner. The kids had a blast never missing a beat as their feet moved along to the colorful lights illuminating the walls. The energy of dancing feet vibrated along to the music.
Francesca and her family were relaxed, fun and natural in front of the camera. It was a really bright, sunny day in Central Park so it was great to find this wooded area with a little trail. It felt like we weren't even in the city. I am looking forward to photographing her Bat Mitzvah this November.
I was the photographer at Kristina and Zach's wedding in 2006. I love when brides and grooms call on me to continue to document their monumental milestones in their lives. When they wanted photos of their baby girl they called and I was there. Now that Serena is almost 5 we've re-connected for a family photo session. It's so much fun to continue to document couples as their family grows. I love to see their children go from babies to big kids and develop their own personalities.
Thank you Kristina, Zach and Serena for making my job so much fun! I was all smiles!
