I don't usually do newborn/baby photography - I don't seem to have enough patience - but when a friend asks, you just cannot say no. Here are a few snapshots of baby Diana.
My good friends Dilyara and Alexey are having a baby in a few weeks and they asked me to photograph a mini pregnancy sessions.
Rachel's Bat Mitzvah was amazing - she is one of the most self-confident and poised girls I have ever met. A few weeks before her big event I met with Rachel to record a brief sound byte for her Bat Mitzvah video montage - she felt so at ease in front of the camera and spoke with such grace that it was easy to forget that I was talking to a 13-year-old. I was really honored to photograph Rachel and her family. Big thanks to Robin Kimberly for helping me capture the party.
I've been a huge fan of Timbuk2 messenger bags for about 10 years now - they are virtually indestructible, waterproof, and can fit virtually anything - a bunch of cameras, books, beer, or even a baby. I sent this photo to Timuk2's "What's in your bag" site, and they posted it today.
My wife Irina made this amazing Halloween costume for Daniella - she was easily the cutest kid at Zoo Boo 2012
