Abby's Pre-Bat Mitzvah Shoot | Boca Raton Family Photographer

A girl who knows what she wants and has fun getting there! Abby you are awesome and I loved getting to know you and your family. I know I sound like a broken record every time I say it, but I really do have awesome families that I get to know and photograph. Okay - Dulce was pretty cool too, even if she is a bit feisty. (Gotta love a feisty girl!)

Abby had Dulce eating out of the palm of her hand - well, maybe the mints had a little to do with it too :) 

Sweet, sweet horse kisses :) 

This light - the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae of a session :) and maybe my favorite photo, but ask me tomorrow and I'll have a different favorite!

Thank you for being so much fun!! I'm mean, you guys go camping how could you NOT be fun!!!

Sam's Bar Mitzvah | Boca Raton Photographer

One for the the books! From the beginning to the very end - every single person and teen/pre-teen was having a blast. I've never seen so many kids truly there for their friend, not just the party favors and candy bar. By the way, there wasn't a candy bar and I'm certain no one even noticed! Sam, you were an awesome Bar Mitzvah and I was so honored to capture every minute of it! - (check out Sam's awesome pre-bar mitzvah shoot in Downtown Fort Lauderdale)

Being raised in the Catholic religion and never having been to a bar or bat mitzvah myself I am loving all that I am learning about the Jewish Faith. I truly don't understand why more of the celebrations and ceremonies aren't also included in the Christian Faiths. The prayer with the parents and Rabbi before the service in the sanctuary is my favorite moment - at least at Temple Beth El, Boca Raton. 

Did you check out those awesome socks? Kids will be kids - always and any time and any place - even temple!

Stacy and Jason - I love the moment you two share here. :) 

This was one amazing party - Great DJ - Great eats - Great friends celebrating Sam!!!!  And the Horah is my favorite party moment :)

Kelsey's Pre-Bat Mitzvah Session | Boca Raton Mitzvah Photographer

Kelsey is The Best! I loved her from the moment I first met her (her mom's pretty cool too - okay, and dad too!) Kelsey's shoot was all about her and "friends". She brought along a best friend and her mom and dad of course too! I really love how my bar and bat mitzvahs are all for including their family in some photos too! 

Check out her awesome smile - she's like that on the inside too!

Best smile - EVER!

We can not choose our parents, but maybe just maybe our souls have something to do with it.

These are my favorites - thank you for letting me into your soul if even for a moment or too.

Deb - You are one awesome mom!

Well - I am definitely a little behind in posting about some awesome events, but none-the-less they are awesome! Check out Jack's pre-mitzvah shoot in downtown Delray Beach, FL!

I've known Jack's family for several years through yoga - I've been their yoga instructor at Bikram Yoga and it was a complete honor to get to know them a little more personally. They are raising three awesome kids with great personalities! I'm hoping I will receive the honor of photographing their youngest child's bat mitzvah too :) 

My favorite one on the bima is the little guy squirming out of Aunt Jill's arms - awesome stuff. He's going to see that when he's older and can't believe he was like that. 

Everybody is always ready to celebrate after the Bar Mitzvah has finally become a Bar Mitzvah! The amount of work these kids put in always amazes me. They lead the entire temple through the service! All that Hebrew!

Thank you Jill and Adam for the honor of capturing a magical evening for Jack! 

Cheers!

A Morning With The R Family | Boca Raton Family Photography

It's not always easy to wake up before the crack of dawn so you can arrive at a client's house before dawn - but it is so worth it! Watching the day begin through the eyes of little ones is certainly precious and to be welcomed into the home is most definitely an honor. If I had to pick a favorite family outside of my own family ;) the R family might just have to be it. It's not just because they are two awesome parents who really remember to keep their relationship awesome or because their girls are sassy, sweet, silly, super awesome girls or because I've watched them grow from single, dating people to this cute family, but it's everything all combined! I'm not saying their perfect - who is? They are just awesome!

Snuggles, doggy stares and bed head - what a great way to begin the day!

I want to remember how tiny they were - tiny fingers grow so quickly - too quickly. They go from holding on to us to letting go and moving on to the next step in life. These are the moments I want to treasure forever.

Who says dad's don't get involved? Not this dad - he loves being there - through it all. He even cooks! 

Can you tell someone was waking up a bit more and looking to play? Kids are the best! 

Involved - I told ya so :) Wait till you see how they get to ballet lessons!

 I love it! and want one too now.

Do you remember that feeling when your younger brother or sister would finally leave and you had one of your parents all to yourself? Best. Thing, In, The, World! There's not much better than a little one-on-one time with one of your parents <3
