Not only do I love photography for the craft and joy of it, but for the opportunity to be part of family milestones. This weekend I photographed Dylan’s bar mitzvah (where he reached the ripe old age of 13) as well as Herb Krasnow’s 90th birthday party! While both parties involved cake and candles, the similarities didn’t stop there. Beautiful toasts were made to deserving guests of honor, and the warmth of family enveloped the scene. Luckily, I was there to capture it.
