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!

Here are Baby “W” and his big brothers in the studio for “W’s” 1 year old birthday portrait session! I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I last photographed these sweet boys when “W” was just seven weeks old. Happy birthday “W!” Have a great second year!

Claire in the Botanical Garden {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

December 19, 2017 · Get to Know You Sessions, Kiddos

I spent some time with Claire and her family in the beautiful Missouri Botanical Garden just in time to get the last of the color before winter finally took away all of the leaves. Claire’s Bat Mitzvah is in March, and I have no doubt that she will be less than amazing! She is so sweet and kind, but also exudes beauty and confidence. I look forward to seeing her up on the bimah next year!

What a gorgeous day we had at Faust Park during this Fall family portrait session! I was so excited to see Mom, Dad, and Big Brother for the first time in a couple of years, and to meet Little Brother for the first time! These two boys sure made me work to get some good shots, but it was a blast, as always!! I hope you all had as much fun as I did! Here are a few of my favorite moments from our shoot…

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!

2018 High School Graduate Zakai! {St. Louis High School Senior Photographer}

September 26, 2017 · High School Seniors

Aaahhh!! High school senior portrait season is upon us! And these sessions are my favorite!! Unfortunately, Zakai requested a super short session, but I still had fun (aside from an insane amount of mosquitoes and gnats), and I’m so happy with the images we got. I’ve watched him grow up over the last ten years, and have had so much fun photographing him and his family. He continues to amaze me with his sweet demeanor, kindness to children, and patience with me when I’m taking his picture! He’s gets more and more handsome every time he’s in front of the camera. Here are a few of my favorites from our session last week…

Ilana Becomes a Bat Mitzvah Next Month! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

September 25, 2017 · Get to Know You Sessions, Kiddos

In just a few weeks, Ilana will step onto the Bimah at synagogue to lead services and read from the Torah as a Jewish adult. Since I was able to photograph her brother’s Bar Mitzvah two and a half years ago, it’s especially fun to get to see Ilana in the spotlight this time. She is fun, energetic, strong, determined, and adorable! I’m excited to see her shine next month!
