Eve’s Spectacular Weekend!

Eve, spectacular in every way! From Bimah to Horah, she and her family celebrated in style. Hats off to Isabel Bryant at BEE Events, Up Light Your Event and the Buckhead Intercontinental HotelDaniel Espeut kept the party going until the wee hours! Thanks, Laurie for choosing me to document Eve’s weekend!


Kate’s Bat Mitzvah Photo Sessions!

Here are some of my faves from Kate’s photo sessions! Can’t wait for her weekend, coming up soon!

Skyler’s Pure Gold Bat Mitzvah!

After an admirable job at Temple Kol Emeth, Skyler joined her family and friends at the Double Tree Hilton Marietta for an amazing night of celebration! MC Mellow and DJ Omar from Atlanta Fever rocked the house at the first mitzvah of the season! Mazel Tov to Skyler and thanks to her parents Al and Allie for an incredible evening!  


Mitch and Simon

It’s hard to photograph boys, they sometimes keep their smiles and feelings to themselves. The challenge with these two friends since forever was to coax those smiles and such out into the open.

Eve’s Bat Mitzvah Portrait Session!

Eve had a great time at her photoshoot and loved her photos! If you want great images like these for your child, get in touch- you’ll be glad you did! Thanks to Isabel Bryan at Best Event Ever for coordinating this!

Carly’s Winter Wonderland

Carly’s mother Karen took on the role of event planner, and with a little help from Bold America Events transformed the ballroom at the W Perimeter into an amazing crystal snow globe. While the adults enjoyed cocktails and apps, Carly and her friends partied the night away with Vibe.

For her grand entrance, snow swirled gently over the cheering crowd as Carly bounded to the stage to thank her family and friends.

Take a look at some of the fantastic photos from that evening and from Temple Sinai!

Jake Flink’s Bar Mitzvah

I met Lori Flink through another client of mine. After meeting her, I knew I really wanted to work with her and her son Jake. Lori had some really cool ideas about the way  she wanted the weekend to look, and I was excited about helping her!

Along with his portrait session at Centennial High, I photographed Jake with a portable green screen for a cardboard stand-out that Lori envisioned greeting the guests as they arrived at The Metropolitan Club.

Once the big weekend arrived, I photographed Jake and his family at Gesher L’torah, at his Shabbat Dinner and of course- at the party Saturday Night!

One of Lori’s friend’s designed the event- she did a great job! DJ Tod mixed the beats, and all of the guests had a great time!

Mazel Tov, Jake!


Olivia and Zoe’s Photo Shoots

Double the fun- twins Zoe and Olivia were great to work with! They had seen some of the  images I had created for cousin Julia’s signing board, so they were super excited for their sessions.

I photographed the girls in downtown Decatur over the winter, and in the spring in their backyard along the Chattahochee River.

From those sessions, I created two Crystal Signature ™ sign in boards that were displayed at the entrance to the party at Mason Murer Fine Art .

Take a look!

The composites above were bonded to the fabricated Lucite to create the stunning Crystal Signature ™ boards- you can see them below at the party. Inquire about adding one of  these to the decor at your next event!


Emma Toor’s Bat Miztvah at The Metropolitan Club

Emma was Bat Mitzvah at Temple Kehillat Chaim in Roswell! That was my first time at the Temple, it was a beautiful place to make portraits of her at the Bimah. She held her Simcha at The Metropolitan Club on Saturday night. For her celebration, Emma chose to appear as Dorothy from the “Wizard of Oz”, becoming the star of the phenomenal decor by Total Lunacy. The amazing DJ Tod rocked the house, and everyone had a great time!

Check out the photos for a look at Emma’s weekend!

Julia’s Bat Mitzvah at Temple Sinai

I had met Betsy Cohen and her sister, Abby Gunthert over the summer, and they both chose me to capture the moments of Mitzvah for Abby’s twins and Betsy’s daughter Julia.

Julia’s Mitzvah was first, and I had a great time capturing her personality for her signing board. We did two shoots at different locations and the photos were great!

Once the weekend arrived, I photographed Julia at Sinai during her rehearsal, and again on Friday night at her Shabbat dinner at Maggiano’s Buckhead.

On Saturday morning, we met before services for more photos with Betsy’s extended family. Julia did a great job on the bimah, and then it was time to party at Temple Sinai! Janice Blackmon of Janice Blackmon Events coordinated Julia’s party and it was fantastic! Balloons over Atlanta  filled the ballroom with  helium goodies. Gigi’s Cupcakes were wolfed down by everyone after a great evening of celebrating and dancing to the rythyms of Vibe Entertainment.

Mazel Tov, Julia!
