I’m not sure that I know anyone who is more busy at the moment than my client/ friend Alison Dinerstein…who is not only preparing for her son’s bar mitzvah (which I’m of course shooting) in a few weeks but is also launching a brand new business venture called Artisan Kitchen this year. I have known Alison since 2007(ish) I suppose when she booked me to photograph her daughter Zoe’s bat mitzvah in 2008. One of my favorite things about this job is the fact that I get to work with the same families for multiple occasions over the course of many years. That’s why I’m never sure whether or not I should refer to someone as a client or as a friend, because really they are both. So when Alison needed a headshot for this new business it was just one more chance for me to drag her into the studio & in front of my lens.

This one was the winner & I knew it would be. This is just so Alison to me…and this is one of the reasons why I love shooting a headshot for someone I have worked with previously. Because I already know who they are, and it’s my job to convey that to the world through one image.
