30 Years of Marriage: This is What True Love Looks Like

All I have to say is that this is what 30 years of true love look like! These two lovebirds met in the military, built a family and a home, chased their dreams together, and have stayed young forever! They chose to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary with a couple’s + family session in the rolling hills near their home in Israel.  I came to capture their story but ended up learning so much – seeing how true love can last when you nurture it and keep that dreamy spark alive. I can only wish one thing for myself and for you – that after 30 years of marriage we will look and feel like these two lovebirds!

This session was a gift from their incredible kids to celebrate 30 years of marriage – and I have to say that this is one of the best gifts you can give your parents – a memory that will last a lifetime, and a day celebrating family and true love.

Jenn + Noah: Maternity Photographer in Tel Aviv, Israel

When Jenn found me online and called me to book a Maternity and Newborn sessions I could not be more excited! We clicked immediately and I’m pretty sure we talked for at least an hour during that first phone call – we were completely on the same page, wanting to capture Jenn and Noah’s life and first pregnancy in Jaffa-Tel Aviv in beautiful golden light before they head back to their native Canada.

I arrived at their apartment early so we could snap a few photos in their beautiful home, and I’m so glad I did! Their apartment is basically my dream urban space, featuring mid-century decor and a spiral staircase, and lots of yellow. It was a glorious afternoon with golden hazy light streaming through giant windows and adding Jenn and Noah’s fur-baby, Winifred, to the shots was so much fun (she was the sweetest gentle giant). I just know these two will be the best parents to their little bundle of joy in a few months.

We continued our session in Jaffa, visiting spots that Jenn and Noah visit on a daily basis – capturing these spots was so important to us, and capturing the experience of pregnancy in a foreign country is something beautiful memories are made of. Can you imagine their little kiddo seeing these shots in the far future and hearing all about mom and dad’s adventures in Tel-Aviv? That’s one lucky kid!

Jenn and Noah are my definition of love. Simple as that. I had such a blast during their shoot, and I had sore cheeks while editing their photos – they just make me smile. If you couldn’t tell – I really like these two. Jenn and Noah, you guys are like sunshine, and I can’t wait to meet your little baby!

Lena + Boaz: Maternity Photography in Israel

This mid-summer session was so special for so many reasons – firstly, one of my best friends was pregnant with her first baby girl, and secondly, I was also pregnant with my second baby boy. I took these maternity photos for this gorgeous couple when I was 7 months pregnant, and it felt completely effortless and absolutely magical. We chose two locations – a shaded road and the beach (both in the Netanya, Israel area). Starting relatively early in the day (15:00) allowed us the versatility of having two locations – the trees were excellent during harsher light hours, and the beach was perfect for that golden hour magical lighting. Here are a few highlights from this session…
