Cookies for Kids' Cancer 5th Annual Chef for Kids' Cancer Gala Benefit was an amazing event featuring many great chefs cooking dinner for guests with an art auction, live auction and performance by Ed Robertson lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the band Barenaked Ladies at Metropolitan West. Here's a few highlights from the evening.
This February 3, 2018 was Ava Roses's Bat Mitzvah celebration at the Edison Ballroom. There were so many fabulous moments of this spectacular occasion. This was especially special to me because 17 years ago I photographed Ava Roses's parents --Vanessa and Eric's marriage to one another! Vanessa and Eric haven't changed a bit. They are still the wildly, fun, artsy and eccentric couple who know how to dance and party likes its 1999!! Here are some of my favorites from that night!
For the past two years My friend has invited me as a guest to a fundraiser event for an organization she is passionate about called: Change for Kids.www.changeforkids.org/ Change for Kids commits and invests in New York City underserved elementary public schools to bridge the gap for children to continue to be successful throughout their school years and into the future. This year, I decided to donate a family photo package to the silent auction as a way to contribute and give back to this organization as I believe all children have the right from the very start to have the very best education possible.
Thank you to the Simpson Family for believing in Change for Kids and winning my family photo session. I enjoyed capturing your three wonderful children in photographs!
The Appelbaum's wanted to hire me to photograph their daughter Jamie's Bat Mitzvah in February but with a conflicting date unfortunately I am not available. However, they decided I must photograph the pre-mitzvah family photo portrait session. I was thrilled to be able to do this with them. As I looked at their names something clicked and I remembered there was a Jamie in a 4th grade photo class I taught at the Jewish Journey Project now called Jewish Journeys at the JCC on the Upper Westside. Could this be the same person? It turns out I was right! It is her all grown up and ready for her Bat Mitzvah!! Wishing Jamie and her family a wonderful Simcha and lots of Mazel Tov!
