Wow! This project is amazing! It’s relevant and very important during this moment in history. Moreover, these faces, of children of so many ethnicities, give me some hope in these dark times. It makes me wonder if It’s possible to dream of a future in which each of the ethnic groups get along peacefully. Are we wise enough to learn from the faces of children?

Philly Legends: King Britt

One day, when I was having dinner with my husband, he asked me “If you could back to a time in your life… ya know, like any age, what would that be?” I didn’t even stutter. “23-25 years old…PERIOD.” I went on to explain to him why: When I was that age, it was the […]

Zoe becomes a Bat Mitzvah – Newton MA Mizvah Photographer

I have known Zoe’s mother, Shawna, FOREVER. We used to dance together back in Philly. Then, she used to wait tables while I bartended. We would go clubbing together and kill it on the dance floor. And, as it happens, life moved on, and we lost touch. I had no clue she even lived in […]

Thank you so much for your kind words. I love shooting Mitzvahs and fell into it by accident. I love the kids and really try to treat them with respect and not like kids. It’s a big day for them and the story of that day is what is most important to me.
