It made me smile so much that I was grinning from cheek to cheek.  This is why I love photographing Mitzvahs. The joy of family and friends coming together and all the love in the room makes it so much fun. I love to create lasting memories through my photographs for each and every family.

The party space Manhattan Penthouse is on Fifth Avenue and 14th Street right down the street from The Village Temple.  Its a loft-like space with arched windows, wood floors, and a beautiful wood bar.  It's full of natural light streaming in. It was March 2 and it was supposed to be the start to my spring mitzvah season but instead, it had snowed in the early hours.  Slush was everywhere on the street but by the time the party was over the sun had come out and the sky was crystal blue.  A great end to Emily's simcha.

60 days to go https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2019/1/60-days-to-go 60 Days to Go...as my daughter and all her friends say! I say Tradition, Tradition, Tradition...After photographing many, many Bar / Bat Mitzvah's over the past 20 years I sit here contemplating my own daughter's upcoming rite of passage into Jewish adulthood and can't believe it's her turn. The first most obvious is that she's turning 13 but this is amazing to me as I wonder where my little girl has gone. I am filled with emotion! Joy, excitement and so Proud of Hannah and all her accomplishments.

Cha Cha turns 14 https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/11/cha-cha-turns-14 It's always great to hear from previous clients that they want to do another photo shoot.   After photographing Cha Cha's Bat Mitzvah a year ago, Cha Cha's mom had a great idea to incorporate a photo session of Cha Cha with her friends for her 14th birthday party. She wanted a photo session in front of murals and graffiti around New York City. We would meet in Soho by The James Hotel where there is a colorful mural outside and move around from there.  This would be so much fun!  When I arrived at the hotel, I decided to go a step further and ask the manager if there was a rooftop that we could take photos.  The James Hotel was gracious to let us go up to the roof where we could see the Freedom Tower and the Jenga building. It was a super morning and is a great idea for any parents that want to throw a tween/teen birthday party.

corporate head shots https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/11/corporate-head-shots I recently did a corporate job for a travel company looking to redo their agent's head shots for their website.  Each person's photo is attached with their story of how they got into the travel industry, why, and where their favorite places are to travel. I worked with their marketing maven Eva Braiman and suggested instead of a studio photo lets create the images outside.  By photographing each subject outside and blurring the background the focus is on the person, the background is dreamy and creates more dimension. I enjoyed hearing first hand from each one of them about their favorite places to travel and can't wait to plan my next trip!

Twins Pre-Bat Mitzvah Portrait Session https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/10/twins-pre-bat-mitzvah-portrait-session Last year I got to photograph Ella and Mia when their sister Ava had her Bat Mitzvah.  When Ava's Mitzvah ended I knew I was going to see them all again next year for Ella and Mia's Bat Mitzvah's. So thrilled to be back together again to photograph their Pre-Mitzvah Portrait Session!!  Just like their sister's, it was an overcast day with the threat of rain.  We managed to make it through without rain and even though it was October it was still really humid!  It didn't matter as the girls had fun being silly and we found a bright purple wall by the Beacon Wine store on Broadway and 73rd street on the Upper West Side!  Looking forward to their May Bat Mitzvah's!

Ethan's Bar Mitzvah https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/10/ethans-bar-mitzvah It was a great morning to take photos outside before Ethan's Bar Mitzvah at East End Temple. Following the service there was a luncheon just across town in Union Square at Blue Water Grill. The adults dined upstairs while downstairs at Metropolis Ethan and his friends played games and partied. Highlights included basketball, fuseball and singing!

Sima and Ethan's Wedding https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/9/sima-and-ethans-wedding Liberty House Wedding, Liberty State Park, Jersey City

370A3799370A3799

Sunday of Labor Day weekend was a perfect day for Sima and Ethan Oster's nuptials at Liberty House in Jersey City.  The bride was radiant and smiley in her wedding gown and the groom looked cool in his tan linen suit minus a tie.  The Liberty House venue was a perfect fit for them.  A cloth chuppah with wood poles held up by glass sand pedestals adorned the manicured lawn. The outdoor terrace was for cocktails that led into a pavilion for dancing.      Off the dance floor was a bar and dining area that could be whatever you wanted to make it. They kept it simple but trendy with succulents and candles as centerpieces on the tables.    The ceremony began at twilight creating a private and romantic mood. The couple ended the ceremony not with a traditional walk back down the aisle but an impromptu receiving line greeting family and friends. The DJ kicked off the night with the couple making an entrance into a Hora and the dancing continued late into the evening. Friends and family mingled, danced and partied late into the night. They showered Sima and Ethan with so much love.  Dessert was make your own s'mores.

Sara's Bat Mitzvah, June 16, 2018 https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/6/saras-bat-mitzvah Sara Roger-Gordon's Bat Mitzvah was on one of the first beautiful days in June. We headed across the street from East End Temple to the park to take family photos.  Her party was at the Manny Cantor Center at the Educational Alliance on the Lower East Side.  It is a big loft-like space with wood floors and floor to ceiling windows on two sides with a wrap around terrace. The space was decked out in purple accents created, designed and handmade by her Dad.      He made individual letters in lights that spelled out her name. The centerpieces on the tables had a small light inside surrounded by clear marbles.  A remote control was next to the vases and when pressed the marbles glowed different colors.  At the end of the evening all the kids went home with a t-shirt celebrating Sara.

Graduation https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/6/graduation Spring means graduation for so many people! 5th grade graduation, middle school, high school, college and lets not leave out master degrees. It is a very fun time where we celebrate scholars everywhere including the little ones moving up to kindergarten. I love to capture the expressions of graduates but especially college grads.  They are full of pride, gratitude, and they have so much to look forward to as they walk down the aisle into their future.

Ava Rose's Bat Mitzvah at the Edison Ballroom https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/2/ava-roses-bat-mitzvah-at-the-edison-ballroom 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!

Change for Kids https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/1/change-for-kids 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!

Jamie Appelbaum Family Photo Session https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/1/jamie-appelbaum-family-photo-session Small World!

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!

Ava's Pre-Mitzvah photo shoot and family session https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2018/1/avas-pre-mitzvah-photo-shoot This portrait session with Ava was so much fun! We didn't know whether it was going to rain or not. The report said the rain would wait but it kept raining off and on right as we were meeting and during the photo shoot.  After looking around the upper westside for indoor areas that could work we were able to go to the park anyway.  The good news was the color saturation was amazing and having an umbrella as a prop made for great shots.  

After this photo shoot her mom called me to come back again for a family photo session for a holiday card.  What a difference a month makes...none of the trees had leaves on them, it was icy cold and windy so even though they planned to take their coats off which they did for some of the photos the majority was with their coats on.  Even though the weather was cold and it was early December we managed to get some lovely family photos.

Looking forward to documenting all the festivities this March when Ava has her Bat Mitzvah!

Smith Family https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2017/11/smith-family 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 https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2017/11/cha-chas-bat-mitzvah 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. 370A3627370A3627 370A3743370A3743 370A4095370A4095 370A4143370A4143 370A5037370A5037 370A4670370A4670 IMG_8308IMG_8308 IMG_8333IMG_8333 370A4975370A4975 370A5118370A5118 370A5227370A5227 370A5237370A5237

Francesca's Pre Bat Mitzvah Portrait Session https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2017/10/francescas-pre-bat-mitzvah-portrait-session  

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.

Fink Family Photos https://www.jenniferweisbord.com/blog/2017/8/fink-family-photos 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!
