Mazel Tov Claire! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

April 25, 2018 · Events

It’s been awhile since I’ve found the time to update my blog, but Claire’s Bat Mitzvah photographs have been on my mind for many weeks, so I was determined to post some of my favorites!

Claire is a strong, confident, beautiful young woman who did an amazing job leading services during her Bat Mitzvah in March. Her family is incredibly sweet, and it is a joy to be able to document these happy moments in their lives.

2018 Nishmah Women's Shabbat Retreat {St. Louis Event Photographer}

February 13, 2018 · Events

I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to attend the 2018 Nishmah Women’s Shabbat Retreat at Cedar Creek in New Haven, Missouri last weekend. It was wonderful to connect with old and new friends from my Jewish community to celebrate Shabbat together, to enjoy delicious food and spirits, and to be inspired through learning, song, dance, yoga, meditation, hiking, and relaxation.  Here are some highlights from the weekend that I was able to capture at the event before and after Shabbat!

Mazel Tov Ilana & Family! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

November 15, 2017 · Events

I’m so excited to post these photos of beautiful, athletic, awesome Ilana and her family!! She became a Bat Mitzvah at the end of October and was INCREDIBLE!! I got to know them a little a couple of years ago during her brother’s Bar Mitzvah, so it was especially fun spending more time with them this Fall. What an honor it was to be part of her weekend!

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!

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.

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

December 21, 2016 · Events

It’s taken me all day to get this blog uploaded with all the distractions from my children being on winter break, but I finally finished it!! I’ve known David and his mom since my daughter (who’s David’s age) and David were in Kindergarten together, so I’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow up for the last eight years. I was also able to take his 1st and 2nd grade school portraits, as well as some family portraits of him and his mom on Laclede’s Landing, so it was great to have another chance to capture some memories on his Bar Mitzvah weekend a few weeks ago! Mazel Tov to David, Mom, Dad, Mom #2, little brothers, and everyone else who celebrated this great day!!

Mazel Tov Sam! {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer}

November 15, 2016 · Events

I really wanted to share some of my favorite moments from Sam’s Bar Mitzvah, so, even though they are a little late, here they are! Sam is truly such a kind person. It is not only apparent by the way he led services and read from the Torah on his Bar Mitzvah last month, but also in the way he treats his sister and interacts with his parents with such gentleness and love.
