I met Jillian and her family a little over a year ago when I photographed her brother's Bar Mitzvah. It's not often that I see siblings that get along as well as Jillian, Josh and Drew! Jillian's Bat Mizvah was one of the funnest events I've ever photographed. The party took place at the Heinz History Center; the theme was winter wonderland. Barbara Rosenberger (event planner) and Micki Cohen (designer) made the place look absolutely amazing! Kim Palmer photographed the party with me as a second shooter and she did an absolutely beautiful job - thank you so much for your help!
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.
