  • {The Freckles Project} "My freckles make me, me..."

  • When you take your passion and you turn it into a career, you are always running the risk of getting stuck in a rut. After years of doing the same thing, you can start to run low on creativity and risk going stale. So it's incredibly important for me that I don't ever allow myself to get stuck. I'm [...]
  • Dream a Little Dream of Me....

  • So, I have a confession to make. I'm lazy with my blogging. It's a bit like when I come downstairs to a messy kitchen. I love it when the kitchen is tidy, and I even try looking at the mess for really long periods of time and using the power of my mind to focus & transform it, but there's only o[...]
  • "sugar, spice and everything nice.."

  • For years I have wanted a special quilt made for my portrait sessions but I always ended up spending the money on something else more 'important'. Finally, 8 years later, I have this stunning quilt (and a matching bunny rabbit which will feature soon!) made by the very talented Ramona Freedman of My[...]
  • We are family...

  • "Living life is fun and we've just begun To get our share of the world's delights High hopes we have for the future And our goal's in sight No we don't get depressed Here's what we call our golden rule Have faith in you and the things you do.." ..I found myself singing that a lot over Pesach [...]
  • Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character

  • “Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.” ― R.J. Palacio, Wonder I was so thrilled when my friend and neighbour asked me to photograph Liat before her Bat Mitzvah. Pre Bar/Batmitzvah sessions [...]
  • Holy Bat Mitzvah Season Batman!

  • In the last few weeks I think I have been to 4 Bat Mitzvahs. And without fail, each time I see the slideshow or the baby photos it makes me so emotional. I mean I know I may seem biased, being a photographer and all that but at the end of the day, we realise just how important it is to photograph ou[...]
  • Leon's Bar Mitzvah Mini Session

  • Meet Leon. A Barmitzvah boy who was born in England, moved to Australia and had his Bar Mitzvah in Israel. Complicated much? Actually not at all. It was a wonderful, special weekend which was enjoyed by much of his extended family and even some friends from Oz! I had the very special task of taking [...]
  • We know each other’s hearts

  • "To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega"   I hav[...]
  • Today was our day...

  • I had butterflies whilst photographing this mother & daughter session and here they are once more now that i'm editing it (just a few hours later I might add) That simple, raw, fierce, indescribable love between mama tiger and her cub; you can just feel it looking through these. Butterfiles. [...]
  • Bat Mitzvah Photo Session - Family Berenblut

  • Dear Blog of Mine, Once in a while I am lucky enough to be asked to photograph old friends;  very often it's been an awful long time since we've seen each other and meanwhile they have gone and sprouted beautiful offspring. I don't know why this should amaze me so much, I mean it's not like I don[...]
