Ethan’s Bar Mitzvah at Coliseum Night Club in White Plains, NY

Ethan had his Bar Mitzvah at Coliseum Night Club in White Plains. The morning ceremony was at Temple Beth Abraham in Tarrytown. Before the ceremony, he posed for some portraits with his parents, his brother, grandparents, aunts & uncles.

Coliseum Night Club is a great venue for a Bar Mitzvah, with a very cool and authentic night club vibe to it. The colorful lighting & stylish white decor make a fantastic backdrop for your photos. This was my first time photographing a Bar Mitzvah at Coliseum, but I have several more coming up this year, and I look forward to working there again.

Yes, it’s that time of year again.

No, I will not be cranking the Christmas music until at least a week after Thanksgiving, but I do want to remind everyone that it is TIME FOR HOLIDAY PORTRAITS!

Holiday mini sessions

I will be shooting 20-minute mini sessions on Saturday, 11/21 &  Saturday, 11/28.

These are great for families who just need a few updated portraits, gift prints, or Holiday card images.
Each 20 minute session is $125, plus tax, and includes three high-resolution digital images (will print up to 8″ x 12″).

The day after your session, you will receive a link to a private, password-protected image gallery with 12 images from your mini session. You will be able to select your three favorite images online, and you will be able to download them within 3 business days. You may also purchase additional images, prints, ornamentscards, etc.

Mini sessions are not ideal for babies under 6 months of age, due to the extra time it sometimes takes to pose babies at this age. Please contact me with any questions you may have about very young or special needs children.

There will be two backdrops available, Dotty Red (seen above) & Classic White. You may choose to use both of these during your session, if you like.

2015 mini sessions are sold out.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Stay tuned for my Black Friday Portrait Special to save on next year’s portrat session!
