Just a few photos from Casey’s Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth Hillel…I photographed his sister’s Bat Mitzvah a year ago and it was great to see familiar faces> A fun party following a beautiful service that included a heart wrenching speech by the Bar Mitzvah boy…I am sometimes in awe of what kids know, feel and express, and this was one of these days I got to see it – Casey is a lovely boy and he had a great time on his big night - as you can probably tell from these….
So Valentine’s Day came and went, but it
s still the month of love, so this befits the occasion… it also is a good Monday post because getting out of bed is soooo hard – after getting two sleep -in mornings on the weekend, it seems extremely cruel to go back to the 6 am routine… but when I know I get to post these online I get up with no problems (that, and the fact that I want tog get the kids to school!!! ) so happy Monday! 02.22…cool date too! Leegie was a pleasure to photograph, I visited her home to pick some favorite outfits and plan the shoot – we had her hair and make up done, it was all up and done, and we did some “fancy shoots” and then I asked her if she wanted to try one more thing – no clothes! Just a white sheet, her smile and her confidence… and of course, they ended up being her favorites!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I had my first set of mini sessions in the studio last week and I had so much fun with the kids who came over – aged 6 months – 12 and then we had one more grown up session for a cute couple – I will post that separately… and in the mean time – the time of love ….
My yearly OC knoll shoot just before valentine’s day… I love the “Outtakes” almost as much as the final images, sometimes even more – the parent setting the kids crack me up every time – because they show the reality behind the image we portray…
