Ethan's Bar Mitzvah - January 29, 2011

Ethan had his bar mitzvah this past Saturday at Washington Hebrew Congregation. I met Ethan's mother through my friend, Anna, whose daughter's bat mitzvah I had photographed last March. Many thanks to Anna for passing my name on as Ethan and his family were as fun to work with as Anna's had been. Ethan's mother, Melinda, put the whole event together and did a fabulous job. She hired me last summer but we never met until a couple of weeks ago. I look forward to seeing her again soon to share the hard copies of the images as well as getting to work on her album.

Congratulations to Ethan - you did a great job and you are a great young man. Melinda and Brian - you have a beautiful family and a wonderful group of friends who turned out to celebrate with you.

Many thanks to Rena Schild for second shooting with me. Other vendors were:

Shelley Poulos at Creative Balloons and More.

Family Portraits in Virginia - January 22, 2011

Yesterday I drove out to Virginia to take some photos of some of my favorite portrait clients. I have been taking photos of their adorable son about every six months for a bit now. Since November he has had a new baby sister thus it was time to get started with her portraits.

Nothing sweeter than a new baby and this little girl is so adorable. She was ever so patient with costume changes by her mom and lots of lens changes on my part. We kept her going for about an hour and a half. By the end of the shoot a few yawns appeared and she was fast asleep by the time I had packed up my equipment. Love this family - can't wait to come back and do spring portraits!
