I recently had the pleasure of meeting the Diamond-Fisch family, thanks in part to the Temple Sinai Nursery School auction. This beautiful family won the session I donated, so we scheduled out a time to get together at their home to update the family’s photos hanging on their walls. The older children, Judah and Lilah, go to Jewish Primary Day School now, and we’ve found we know several people in common from both school communities.

As first time clients, Heather (Mom) and Eytan (Dad) were concerned with the look of their yard because they had recently moved in and hadn’t had the chance to do any new landscaping. The couple has plans to update the fence in the future, as well. However, I know from experience that all the greenery, the fun climbing tree, and stone wall would look amazing in their photos. I enjoy surprising parents with how great the background ends up looking in the photos we take, and surprised they were!

Heather chose bright colors for all of the kids that worked very well together and added a nice pop of color to all the greenery. Judah’s bright orange shirt does such a lovely job of helping him stand out, while accentuating that adorable smile he has. Also, don’t you just love the patterns of the girls’ dresses? So cute!

The youngest, Meital, was having a bit of a rough morning—as toddlers are known to do from time to time—but I still managed to capture some beautiful photos of her, which ended up being another nice surprise for her parents. She has such an infection smile, and definitely stole the show in the adorable shot with her mommy.

The family decided to go with a series of three photos, including the beautiful family photo below, the one of mom with their youngest, Meital, and one of dad with older children Judah and Lilah to be displayed in their living room. They’ve also chosen individual photos of each child to be on display in the entry hall of their home, which I know will look amazing and serve to preserve the memories of this age for all the children. <3
