We should celebrate when children have one foot in each world, childhood and adulthood. There is no one brightline that actually demarks that moment. But there are a series of small and not so small moments. One is your birthday. It’s a moment. When you’re young, it’s a big deal. When you’re older, it’s mostly not. But in between, we shouldn’t be so eager to move children to adulthood. Personally, there are more than a few times I’d trade with a 5 year old, or even my 19 year old self, any day of the week.
So a party to acknowledge that moment - that fleeting moment - is a good thing. It’s to celebrate this very moment. A moment where your child is in both worlds and not fully in either.
Celebrate life. Enjoy it. Enjoy your children. They will be grown and flown soon enough.
A quiet moment before the party!Read More

I love color! The teal of the tallis - reminds me of a summer night sky - well after sunset but before night falls - a planetarium blue!
I'm a sucker for light. All light. Here are pops of color and circles and loops and splashes and well a rainbow of sorts. It's a fun and colorful moment and makes me, and hopefully the client, happy!
Really need no explanation....yum!
Some are easy to find. The walls, the pews - all patterns. Others happen. Here the rabbi and the bar mitzvah are swinging their tallit the same way...a pattern!
Bad pun, sorry. But yes, he is in b&w and is reading. When I shoot in familiar spaces - it can be...a lot of the same. I always try to look for new angles, use of light, positions, anything. The family is unique, the photos should be as well.
First time I've ever seen this. Could be theruptic.
I do believe in giving back. I volunteered to shoot the fundraiser for Isaiah House, a family shelter for homeless families in East Orange. They do good work. I was open.
Mitzvahs are about traditions. Generation to generation.
I love coming of age traditions and ceremonies. Sometimes it's formal, such as a bar or bat mitzvah, and sometimes it's a party, like a very sweet 16. It's all about the child coming one more step to adulthood....
I actually don't care if family members want to take photos during the rehearsal. I will happily use their phone and take the photo for them. It's their moment. It's ok.
I love lines. Leading lines especially - all these lines point to what's really important!
It is always an honor to be asked to capture a major family event. To be entrusted with preserving the memories that will be passed down for generations. To be entrusted to stop time for one moment.
That will be on the market soon. I do very much enjoy real estate photography. I get to see (most) homes at their best. This inspires me to do something with my home...
