My dear friends Bitania and Nadav are the coolest couple I know, and they have an equally cool baby – a little dude who is as calm as they get. Long ago, I met Bitania at university, we both took a French class and we both skipped classes as much as we could (I know…it wasn’t a good decision at all!). She’s one of those friends who you can lose touch with for years and then pick up exactly where you left off – she’s a free spirit and I just love her to bits. When she had her baby boy it was clear to me that I would snap a few photos of this little man.
So, I came to their home in Neve Tzedek and we had ourselves a calm mid-morning session. Neve Tzedek was established in 1887 and it’s buildings incorporated design elements from the Art Nouveau and the Bauhaus movements, with superb contemporary luxuries like larger than life living rooms, and extraordinary detailing. When I came up the stairs it felt like I was time traveling – I was teleported back in time and entered a different realm. Everything was perfection – an ancient stairway, the massive space, high ceilings, and antique peeling wall paint, and of course the glorious light coming from the numerous balconies surrounding their home. It was absolutely enchanting.
