Fun and Stylish Bar Mitzvah at Harvard University Hillel | Portrait Photography by Zahar Raskin | www.raskinstudio.com | Cambridge, MA
To say that this Fun and Stylish Bar Mitzvah celebration was just fun, would be an understatement!! Prior to having a beautiful Bar Mitzvah ceremony for their two sons at Harvard Hillel, I met the whole family for a casual lifestyle portrait session next to Harvard Business School. The weather was beautiful and as a result we were rewarded with some classic and candid style portraits as we walked around, slowly making our way to Harvard Hillel. We proceeded with taking some more formal pictures with extended family outside of Harvard Hillel, and I am happy to say that everyone was all smiles and ready for pictures. The ceremony itself was beautiful and took place on the second floor of Hillel house. Dear Lori and Ben, congratulations again on a beautiful Bar Mitzvah of your sons and thank you very much for choosing RaskinStudio to document such a memorable event. I am very excited to share a few sneak peak images from this unforgettable day in this blog post.

Romantic and Stylish Outdoor Engagement Session by Zahar Raskin | MIT Engagement Photography by RaskinStudio | Cambridge and Brookline Wedding Photographer Zahar Raskin | www.raskinstudio.com | Brookline, MA
We did miss the warm weather by a couple of days, but its absence was easily made by this couple's energy and charisma!! We started our session not long before the sundown at Killian Court at MIT campus in Cambridge. It is by far one of the most picturesque settings for an engagement session in Boston, with tall columns and historical buildings that served as a beginning for so many exciting events and discoveries. Following a session at MIT, we proceeded taking some photo journalistic pictures at Cafe Nero in Brookline. It is among the books and excellent coffee this beautiful relationship has began. Dear Sharona and Joe, it is with great pleasure I am sharing a few sneak peak images from your engagement session. Thank you for choosing RaskinStudio to document such an important event, and I look forward to documenting your big day later this Spring!!

Colorful Foliage Family Photo Session by Zahar Raskin | Larz Anderson Park Family Photography by RaskinStudio | Boston Family Photographer Zahar Raskin | Brookline, MA | www.raskinstudio.com
Needless to say, foliage season is my favorite time for taking family pictures around Boston. Larz Anderson park serves as a beautiful backdrop with plush yellow and red colors meeting one's eye, no matter which way one is looking. The only thing that can be better than taking foliage pictures, is taking pictures of a beautiful family with a boy who just turned one, and is trying to experience his first steps. In a couple of hours that we spent together, I was lucky to document countless smiles, laughs and first steps happening right in front of my eyes. It is with great pleasure I would like to share a couple of sneak peak images from this unforgettable family photo session!!
Stylish and Unforgettable Foliage Wedding by Zahar Raskin | Boston Wedding Photographer Zahar Raskin | Jewish Wedding Photography by RaskinStudio | Sharon Community Center Wedding | www.raskinstudio.com
When you find someone who on a raining wedding day will laugh with you, hold an umbrella over your head, and dance Gangnam Style with you under the rain, you hold that person tight and never let them go!!! It is exactly this situation that I had an immense pleasure to observe and be a part of over the last weekend. This beautiful and stylish couple went through their wedding with grace and ease, sharing countless laughs, smiles and kisses starting from the getting ready, to couples photo shoot by Sharon Memorial Beach, to an unforgettable Huppah ceremony by Sharon Lake at Sharon Community Center. However, this was really only the beginning, before a fun reception, following the Huppah ceremony. Dear Anya and Kirill, thank you very much for choosing RaskinStudio to help you document your wedding day!! It is with great pleasure I would like to share a few sneak peak images!!

I have exactly two words that describe this Fun and Adventurous outdoors family photo session at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, "All Smiles"!! Even before baby M. got out of the car, I noticed that he had a huge smile on his face, and things only got better as the photo session progressed. We took a lot of candid pictures with a wooden chair, a wooden box, mom, dad, walking around the park, a stone gazebo and all through the session this kid just would not stop smiling!! Needless to say, taking some documentary candid pictures for this beautiful family was a snap, and I am super excited to share a few sneak peak images as I work on digital retouching of the full gallery from this unforgettable and stylish family photo session!!
