Joelle’s Bat Mitzvah Shoot, Thornhill Woods

We used to live in a little place called Thornhill Woods, and the most wonderful thing about it was that our house backed on to the actual woods, which basically gave me an outdoor photo studio of my very own. I would take clients back into the wooded wonderland. When we moved two years ago — to a house that backs on to…another house — I mourned the loss of my woods.

But this summer I got to photograph Joelle and her family on the Friday before her bat mitzvah in MY WOODS.

Mazel Tov Joelle!


Leora’s Bat Mitzvah, Breakaway Studios, Toronto

My job becomes a million times easier when the bat mitzvah girl is a total ham — and Leora was one of my favorites. She smiled and just had herself the best time all night. Mazel Tov Leora

Binyamin Goldman’s Bar Mitzvah Shoot

I love when clients are up for anything! And the Goldman family was just awesome and indulged me when I requested that we shoot in Wychwood Barns. It is my favorite place to shoot in the entire city of Toronto, and trust me when I tell you that we have no shortage of lovely places in this city. But to me, everything about it is just wonderful.

The Bar Mitzvah boy and his siblings were such hams — I had such a giggle going through all of their silly shots.
