Back in April, when it was supposed to be spring, we braved the ridiculously cold and leafless outdoors to capture Sruli’s curls just before they were cut off.  He brought along his beautiful big sister, too.




I fell in love with little Marie at the beach and she (and her Papa) graciously let me take a few photos.  See, that high school French did come to good use!

Oh the sweetness.  Baby Shulamis is the newest member of the Baby Club here at ESTI Photography and I look forward to watching her grow over her first year.

This tiny little girl is so sweet and gentle, but is already loaded with personality at eight months old.  But we got that innocent little baby image that her mama so badly wanted!

This lucky baby girl was the winner of our first Instagram giveaway! (Wait, maybe it was her mother who was the winner….)  And she couldn’t have been more fun to photograph.  Adorable grins, chubby thighs and a playful personality.  Love it!

This little guy is super lucky.  Not only does he have gorgeous blond locks and adorable dimples, he gets to go have his upsherin in Israel!  Lag B’omer boys just have it made – especially if they are named “Shimon”.

It’s been way too long since my last blog post. Time to play catch-up!

This little guy was in the studio a little while ago for his pre-upsherin portraits.  He may not have a lot to cut off, but it’s still important to capture this moment in time before he becomes a “big boy”.  He also brought along his little sister for a few portraits of her own.

Sometimes I get lucky and my job is super easy.  There are some kids that just have the complete package.  This little guy was a classic example. The curls. The face (that dimple!). The personality.  Super easy-going and super fun.  All of it.  I really don’t know how his mama is going to choose favorites because I can’t even narrow it down to a reasonable amount of choices!


There’s just something about a family of only boys.  Feels like a private little club where girls are just not allowed.  This lucky upsherin guy brought along his posse to his special photo session.
