I recently got to photograph my buddy Nico who I first met about 2 years ago when I did an outdoor photo session with him… This little guy left an impression! He was probably one of the smartest people, let alone kids, that I’d ever met! I couldn’t get enough!! This time I photographed him, he brought his new twin sisters along for the fun. It was so great getting to see him again, and I especially loved seeing what a good big brother he’d become!
August was a great month– filled with weddings, lots of pregnancy and newborn sessions, and tons of family photos, both in the studio and outdoors with natural light! Here is a slideshow featuring a little bit of every photo session from August 2009. Can’t wait to see what September brings…!
I photographed my cousin’s Bar Mitzvah in a very non-traditional way… it was done in installments– the party first, and then this past weekend, about a month after the big day, we finally did his Bar Mitzvah portraits. The weather was amazing, so after we took the pictures in the synagogue, but before everyone was tired of smiling, we went outside and took some great family photos. I tell families all the time that occasions like Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are great times to get updated family portraits– everyone has fresh haircuts and is looking their best, and it’s a chance to get out-of-town’ers and the whole gang together.
Everyone seemed to let loose during the outdoor family portraits– we had so much fun! I suggested they toss their youngest brother in the air, and… they did! Sorry JoJo! They were all such great sports, and we got some great shots!
