Some things just always stay the same…

One of the great joys of my job is when I get to see how the families grow, and recognize that while some things change, other just will always be the same. On the left is the princess herself, (best known as Punchys) overseeing her brother David’s recent Bar Mitzvah. The one on the right is her two years earlier rooting for her other brother, Andres. Still is, and always will be, the center of attention!

Luly’a Bar Mitzvah at Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center

Andres Birnbaum (better known as Luly) officially became a man on Sept 3rd. His Bar Mitzvah was held at Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center and his mom (@Nathalie Szemere Birnbaum) and dad couldn’t be prouder!! I can’t say enough great things about Luly and his family. I’m lucky to have clients like these and was thrilled to be able to capture this monumental time is Luly’s life. The event was spectacularly produced by the awe inspiring Lisi Korn Oksemberg of Forever Events – Premier Wedding & Event Planning who’s clever use of light bulbs really gave this event its sparkle! Enjoy!


Ari Grosfeld’s Mitzvah at Pier 66

This is Ari Grosfeld. For her Bat Mitzvah portraits, Ari couldn’t decide if she is a fashion model or sports star; so she decided to be both! I loved the idea. This high gloss style of lighting seemed only appropriate for her decor shots so we went to town. Ari was the perfect model! Using the golf course behind her house, and with a storm looming overhead, we set up our lights and created these. Below that are the Bat Mitzvah picsat the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 . The incomparable Julie Tonkin Cohen , Jeff Gold from Zazz Productions and Jim Dalsimer and David Dalsimer from Dalsimer Atlas Florists and Event Decorators were all on hand! Much more to come!
