About David Steinberg

Beautiful photographs of your memorable day are treasures you will cherish for a lifetime. Deciding who to trust with this important job is critical.  Our creativity and talent will produce a beautiful finished product and our easy going, lively style will make your entire experience a pleasure from beginning to end.


I am a family-oriented photographer specializing in Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Bris Milahs, Simchat Bat, Events & Special Occasions. 

I believe strongly in giving back to the community you live in and I try to do this by donating a percentage of all sales and packages ordered through the Jewish Community back to local Jewish Organizations.  I also donate my time to various non-profit groups, including schools, churches and synagogues, and help them run fundraising projects through photographs of events. I am available for activism events as well, e-mail me by clicking the "contact us" link.

Tips: My goal is to create beautiful portraits in a comfortable relaxed environment and to make your portrait session FUN! Everyone wants beautiful portraits of their children, but the process is often not an enjoyable experience. So often, the day is dreaded, children are warned to be on their best behavior, and the resulting photographs reflect the stress experienced by children and parents alike. I prefer to conduct my sessions in your home or in a place where you and your children are familiar and comfortable such as a local park because I believe that it is easier to relax and be yourselves. This will result in the very best possible portraits.

The session can be done with natural light in your home or I may add some simple portable studio lighting if necessary. I will strive to use your home or the location of your choosing as the backdrop of the portraits.  Sessions usually last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. I will never hurry you along and we can take all the time needed to be sure that we get a good sampling of portraits for you to choose from. 

If there are important items that you would like to have included in the portrait such as a special blanket or toy, please have them ready and prepared prior to the session.

Clothing

When planning for your session, clothing should be a top priority.  It is of extreme importance and should be considered and coordinated carefully. Your clothing choices will be a big determining factor in the final outcome of your portraits. Clothing should be of neutral colors and have a timeless feel to them. You should avoid logos and loud bright colors as these do not photograph well and will draw attention away from the subject. Newborns and babies photograph best in their own skin. A simple diaper cover or less will result in the best portrait of your new baby. If more than one person will be included in the session, clothing tones and styles should match to be sure that attention is not drawn to the clothing instead of the subjects. The main focus of the portrait should be the person being photographed and not what they are wearing.

 Please email us through the "contact us" link and tell us about your event.  Rates vary based on event type, location, and the number of photographers needed.  We are very accommodating.
