Ft Lauderdale Mitzvah Photographer | Courtney's Mitzvah Pre Shoot | Sloan's

This sweet girl became a Bat Mitzvah this past weekend. While I work on the images from her special day, I wanted to share this selection from her mitzvah pre-shoot. Her theme was candy, and what better place to take photos than at a candy and ice cream shop!? Mom did a great job on the decor for Courtney’s reception, and used these images in centerpieces and in a sign-in book. I really enjoyed getting to know this family, and can’t wait to share more of them!

Weston Mitzvah Photographer | Benji's Bar Mitzvah | Slice Weston

This young man became a bar mitzvah reading the Torah during a Saturday evening service. This simcha was followed by partying with family and friends and framily, friends that are like family. It was neat to see the venue transform from seating the guests for services into a space to celebrate, and celebrate they did! There were glow sticks, shiny objects on longer sticks, and donuts, which hopefully didn’t stick to anyone’s fancy dress!

I know I say it all the time, but when you are yourselves, I will have many So You moments to capture. This family is so genuine, and there were so many moments captured from beginning to end of this joyous event.

The mitzvah boy, Ryan, smiles easily. And his smile is contagious. I know most kids have a lot of fun at their mitzvah, but Ryan’s smile in these images is just beaming, and I can’t look at them without smiling!

Their reception was tons of fun. They could have gone full UM, but instead went with a College Game Day theme, and seeing their guests dressed to cheer on their favorite teams added so much good energy to the celebration!

Wynwood Walls Miami Photographer | Mother Daughter Photo Session

I cannot believe it had been almost 3 years since our last session! But I am so glad these two ladies came before my camera again. They are both absolutely gorgeous, and their love for each other and fun they have together absolutely leaps off the screen, and is so palpable in these images, it makes my heart explode! That was a complete run-on sentence, but all the feels often struggle to find all the words!

Many people worry that at a Wynwood Walls photo session, the walls will overpower the people. I disagree. As an artist who is conveying meaning in my images, I find that the vibrancy of the colorful murals is a perfect enhancement to the vibrancy in the families I have the honor of capturing!
