Client testimonial:
If you are looking for a cookie cutter photographer, wrong stop. If you are looking for someone with a unique eye to capture the beauty and humor of milestone moments in the form of art, read on.  The minute we met Catherine, it all clicked. She welcomed our “individualities” as an opportunity to make our photos more fabulous.  She encouraged our ideas, and enhanced them with her own creativity. She was flexible, patient, reliable and understanding and a pleasure to work with throughout. The photoshoots were so much fun even with two teenage boys!  Catherine, Alistair and team rolled with us through two Bar Mitzvahs in three years (we came back a second time).  We love our photos!  Hilary F.

Mitzvah Portrait shoot:

Our portrait shoots are fun, relaxed and natural and can be shot anywhere. We offer a couple of options including studio or location or a mix of both.

For the girls looking for a glamorous studio shoot, we recommend our NYC studio. We can off a 1-2 hour shoot with multiple changes of outfit and backdrops. Our talented hair and make-up artists on staff will provide a complete makeover that tastefully enhances your look.

Location shoots can be planned for any location including NYC, NJ, CT at the client’s home or places nearby.

Typically our clients opt for our in-house custom designed signing books. But we can also offer large format prints and posters for party decorations, supply of digital images for slideshows or other display at the venue.
