This gorgeous little guy came to the studio for his upsherin portraits today and brought along his little sister who just learned to walk! It took them a bit of time to warm up – which worked out perfectly to get these magnificent serious formal portraits.  By the time their clothes were changed, they were all smiles.

 

I admit it. I have some favorites. I think all photographers do.  This family is right up there on my favorite list.  On top of all the gorgeousness that you can see for yourself right here, they just have the most fun and vibrant personalities all around.  From the father (why not propose to his wife of, um, several years?) down to the little guys, everybody in this family lives life to the fullest.

 

I’m so far behind in blogging that I almost forgot how to log in to my own website!!  I will get caught up – one day.

 

For now – how’s this little band of brothers?  I’ve been watching them grow over the years. We started with the two biggest ones and now there are four handsome guys!!

I had a chance to escape to Boston last week to visit my lovely friend Iliana and I grabbed it.  No way I could miss out on photographing her absolutely gorgeous kids!  (I had a hard time not sneaking little Jacob into my suitcase and bringing him home with me.)

By now many of you know that I tend to go a little – ok, maybe a lot – over the top when throwing birthday parties for my kids.  I have fun doing it and we create really great memories for them.

My Benny turns six this week and he chose a nautical theme for his party.  The weather cooperated and we had a beautiful day for lots of sea-faring fun!

The invitation:

The boys decorated personalized sailor hats while we waited for everyone to arrive.  Then they learned how to make their own paper boats.  After that it was time for some active fun.  In two teams, they had relay races. They walked the plank, ran to ring the Captain’s bell, stacked the cargo and filled the water tanks.

After working up an appetite, they lined up for mess time.  Each boy got his own mess tray to fill with his choices from the buffet.  After dinner, they got to dig in the sand (table) for golden coins.

Everyone worked together to decipher the clues for a grand scavenger hunt.  They discovered a real treasure chest filled with loot!

The fabulous cupcakes were from Cup of Cake here in Lakewood. Once again, their treats were a huge hit!

A very special shout out to my lovely assistant who is training to create special parties of her own ;-) .

 

Another one of my “next generation” cousins was in with her beautiful upsherin boy for portraits. And he brought along his, um, feisty little brother. Don’t they look like little angels sitting together?

 

This gorgeous little boy – and his adorable baby sister – are my cousin’s grandkids. No, not his kids. His grandkids. I’m so old.  But what can I say – I have gorgeous relatives!

 

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.

 

 

 

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.

 

I’m pretty sure this family is in my top three best coordinated families.  None of them were matching, but the whole collection works perfectly together.  Future clients – take notes!!
