Mazel Tov Ellior and Family! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

June 21, 2017 · Events

Rabbi Carnie and Paulie have four children, of which Ellior is the youngest. I’ve seen each one of their children become a Bat or Bar Mitzvah, and had the honor of documenting many special moments during those times. As I witnessed Ellior leading services and reading from the Torah on her Bat Mitzvah last month, and looked over to see all of the familiar faces (Ellie’s parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles), I couldn’t help but to feel like I was part of their beautiful family. I was overcome with joy to be a part of their lives. Mazel tov to you all!! I love you!!!

Mazel Tov to Adin & Family! {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer}

May 17, 2017 · Events

What a great joy to see our friends’ son Adin become a Bar Mitzvah! His saba (grandpa) tutored our daughter during her Bat Mitzvah and will also tutor our son. We’ve made many memories together with Adin’s immediate and extended family over the years, but it was especially wonderful to document this mitzvah and to have a chance to celebrate this special day as well! Here are a few favorite shots from Adin’s Bar Mitzvah rehearsal and party at the end of April!

May 3, 2017 · High School Seniors

What a talented, sweet, and handsome guy I got to spend time with last Sunday! Congratulations to Cole who is graduating from Chaminade this month! I had fun getting to know him a little during his session, and loved having both Mom and Dad around during his session to help with clothing and location changes (and security)! I wish you lots of luck as you make this exciting transition into the next stage of your life Cole! Here are some of my favorite shots from your senior portrait session…

Arkansas Spring Break {Family Vacation Photographer}

March 30, 2017 · Kiddos, Snapshots, Vacations

A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to join her and her daughters (who are also friends with my children) in crystal mining and camping in Arkansas for a few days during Spring Break. If you know me, you know there’s a slim chance I’ll say no to an invitation to go camping. It’s my favorite thing to do!! We camped on Lake Ouachita at Joplin Campground and had a blast mining for crystals. It was such a beautiful few days away from home!

Sophia & Maya's B'nai Mitzvah! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

March 15, 2017 · Events

Mazel tov to two amaaaazing young women!! Each of these girls learned an entire book of Talmud (in Hebrew) in preparation for their Bat Mitzvah!!! I can hardly even wrap my head around this task. I’ve had the honor of photographing this family for years now, so it was truly special to see them reach this important milestone. Here are some highlights from their weekend!

One of the most fun and different parts of the party was the Master Chef-style BAKE OFF!!!

Notice the extreme difference between Team 2 with mostly girls (above) and Team 7 with all boys (below).

At the end of the night, everyone put their arms around each other and sang and danced together.
