Show & Tell : Baby Ella

I’m so so grateful for my beautiful niece Ella. Not only because I love her but because she gives me a great excuse to return home and take endless photos of her! I am warning you now, there will be many more photos of her in the future. You will pretty much see her grow up before your very eyes.

Here are a few photographs from 2 weeks ago. Isn’t she just the cutest little thing!?

Sneak Peak: Jenny & Stephen

I had an amazing shoot today with a very loving couple, Jenny and Stephen. It has been unseasonable cold here in Boston and thank god it was actually warm for once! Crisp blue sky, warmth from the sun, and a beautiful scenery, what else could we have asked for?! Here’s a sneak peak from today’s shoot at Wright’s Tower.

Tamara’s Bat Mitzvah

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot my first Bat Mitzvah. I’ve only seen one on television so I was pumped to attend my first! My good friend Sara is Jewish and was nice enough to recommend me to a wonderful family. They were so warm and welcoming, which made my first experience even better.

The religious ceremony was quite strict. I was restricted to a very small area were I was unable to move around freely or use flash during the event. I understood the reasoning and instead of pouting like a young child (because I wanted to so badly!) I had to quickly figure ways to make this work. I was trusted to photograph an extremely important event so I had to make sure I captured every moment. Although the conditions weren’t perfect, I was happy with the results given the situation. Because the nature of this event, I will respect the family and not post photographs of this private and sacred moment.

I can however show you photographs from the after party! I’ve only heard Bat Mitzvah were fun and sometimes very lavish, but I had to see it for myself. These young teenagers really knew how to party! The event was hosted at a club in downtown Boston (I wish I could host a party in Boston period!) and was complete with a DJ, Emcee, Air Brush t-shirt artist, and Air Brush tattoo artist! Here’s a snapshot of their night.
