One of the my favorite parts of my job is getting to know many local families I wouldn’t have known otherwise. I feel lucky to get a glimpse into their lives and get to love on their kids a bit. When I photograph a lifestyle event like a bat mitzvah I often feel like part of the family by the time our many hours together are over. This family is no exception and Eliana is a truly spectacular kid.
Though it was slightly freezing Eliana and her brothers toughed it out, wore smiles on their shivering lips, and huddled together to stay warm. After our portraits we headed to Space Events in Englewood NJ for an epic party. Space constantly outdoes themselves from their helpful staff to gorgeous decor. They are the only venue that can make sports glamorous and girly, the basketballs mixed with gorgeous florals and bling. Kids love going to parties at Space, the game room keeps them busy before the dance floor opens, and bowling is always a hit. We partied for hours with Charlie and their in house DJ team and ate delicious food from Carlos & Gabby’s. And a girl after my own heart, Eliana LOVES to party! She never left the dance floor and rarely even left the stage where she loved dancing with her friends.
We partied so hard that my feet hurt and my fingers were blistered from shooting so many images, but I’m still smiling from this amazing day celebrating Eliana!
