A couple of weeks ago I saw a desperate plea for a veterinary specialist from Michelle & Ben, some of my wedding clients from last year. I was so sad to hear that their darling lab Henry, a very important member of the family had been diagnosed with cancer of the leg. Having experienced a great loss myself this year (that's another blog post entirely), I demanded that Michelle & Ben bring Henry into the studio immediately for some portraits. I couldn't do anything about Henry's health but I could do something about his memory and I knew that I had to. Henry was in good spirits on the day of our session and got to eat lots and lots of treats. His sister Stella, a boston terrier got to share in that action. Just 2 days later Henry lost his battle with cancer. But he will live on in

Lindsay Rush is the most delightfully talented young song writer who has been a FB friend for so long that I wasn't sure if we had actually met before or not. But since she was in need of some non-specific pictures for professional and personal use, we just decided to play in the studio for a couple of hours to see what we got. And since one of Lindsay's BFFs/ makeup artist Jen Shelton was so lovely as well, we did pictures of them together...because after all, who doesn't want a gorgeous portrait of themselves with their best friend? At some point I would just die to have a Young Hollywood cover Vanity Fair style portrait of myself with my 5 best girlfriends from high school. That would be divine.

It is always exciting when one of my clients welcomes a new baby to the family and I was thrilled to be called in to photograph the most recent edition to the Laibow family, little baby Shai. So just 2 days before leaving on my last trip to DC, I popped in to say my first hellos and to do little Shai's first portrait session. This was the 4th time I've photographed her big sister, Sivan...click here to see our most recent previous session. Galit & Brian make the most beautiful babies...I'm so fortunate to be their photographer.

I must say that it is particularly special when I am asked by a photographer or anyone who knows a lot about photography to shoot their wedding/ family/ children/ whatever. So I was particularly thrilled when recently my friend & (CEO of my lab, Pictage) Jim Collins asked me to photograph his son for his senior portraits. Especially since I don't really shoot senior portraits. Well this would be my third one ever. But what was really interesting was to work with a young man who is on the brink of adult-hood and try to show him a more grown-up version of himself...while still trying to capture the person he is today. So here are a few faves from my session with Mitch. Thanks again for being such a good sport! :)

I have known Sara and Alex for a number of years so I was thrilled when they asked me to shoot a few portraits of them before their twins arrive. Any Top Chef fans out there might recognize Alex from Season 5. But whether or not you're a foodie, if you live in or visit Los Angeles, you must be sure to swing by Sweetsalt Food Shop in Toluca Lake which is owned and operated by Sara and Alex. It is one of my absolute favorite lunch places in the area and the food is always super fresh and simple yet always full of interesting flavors and combinations that would never occur to me but always work perfectly. And I feel so lucky that it is only a couple of miles from my house. Yay...hmm, now I'm getting hungry. Can't wait to meet those babies you guys!
