Lola is one!

This sweet little girl is celebrating her first birthday. Such a cutie!
Love those blue eyes.
She's such a happy little girl and she loves walking in her pink converse shoes.
 She wasn't too sure about the smash cake in the beginning, but she loved the yellow pedestal and ended up having some fun throwing the cake off the pedestal.
Happy Birthday Lola!

Katie's Amazing Bat Mitzvah

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Katie's fabulous Bat Mitzvah. She such a fun, beautiful, smart girl that it was easy to get amazing photos. Laura from L'events did a wonderful job with the planning and both venues were filled with amazing light. The new Stern Chapel at Temple Emanu-El is simply gorgeous and eM The Venue is always a great place to work. Here's a peek at yesterday's amazing...
Katie was absolutely perfect Saturday morning during the service. I love the Ark in the new Stern Chapel it's covered in a weaving made from copper wires and recycled mylar balloons. It photographs like a rainbow and its gorgeous.

A little wider shot of the family at the bimah with the beautiful wall of glass behind them.
 Katie at the Torah.
 A few more fun family portraits.
 The party was full of light and color.
 More party details.
 The dance floor.
 Katie's gorgeous guest book I designed was on display for everyone to sign. I love these books!
 Katie and her family got to the party a little early for a few portraits.
 Then it was party time!
 DJ Haze and Fenton kept the dance floor packed all night.
 The girls beat the boys in the Hula Hoop contest.
 Mom and Dad rocked the mic and danced all night too.
 Katie's friends did a special dance for her.
 and everyone went up in the chair for the Hora. Katie's friends even lifted her!
 Such a fun party.
 Mavel Tov Katie! I'll have the rest of your photos ready soon!
