When I shot my last Bat Mitzvah in Manor, West Orange, I was stopped by a "Resident Planning Geek" - Winstina. She was very interested in my work and asked if I would like to do an interview about my life in the US, since I am not an American citizen. Among many questions, she was interested in the process of my father's book which was finished last winter, who influenced me, and the reason why and how I went to collage in the US.
It was just publised at A Blog For Millennial Students. http://residentplanningeek.com/wgisblog/pavlina-perry-capturing-love-through-photography/
This book is a collection of the photography of my father, Frantisek Richter, who also chose the title. He even found the website where we could publish it. His book is availible with three different covers: Hardcover, Softcover and ImageWrap (on the picture). Zpivani o Rose is also available in matte, lustre, or gloss finishes. The book is available at Frantisek Richter- Zpivani o rose.
Wishing you and your loved ones peace, health and happiness in the coming New Year!
.. and I think to my self, what a wounderful world!
Julia's Party at the Manor in West Orange, Nj.
Julia's Bat Mitzvah ceremony, at Bnai Keshet, South Fullerton, NJ
A little peak of photography which was done about 3 weeks prior to Lydia's Batmizvah.
One of two Lydis's favorite photos, which were used at the event.
This was a lot of fun. A beautiful location and an amazing looking and fun subject to shoot - Lydia. Feel free to view more photos from the event in my Events Category, under Bar/Bat Mitzvah Photography.
Amber’s family originally came from South Africa and they wanted something that felt warm and cozy. Therefore they chose for their Bat Mitzvah an oriental/sand theme, which was a lot of fun. Amber’s Bat mitzvah event was scheduled for February 2011, but I went to Rumson, NJ at the end of the summer in 2010 to do a “pre” photo shoot at the family’s garden and at the beach. These photos, printed in poster size and some on textile, were then used as part of the decorations for Amber’s Bat Mitzvah party.
They looked really great! All the children were able to sign one of her poster size images right next to the door and this gift will stay with Amber forever. What a great memory!
I worked again with an amazing, creative event planer; Corrine who made all this happen.

This big family makes every ten years a photo session. At this point, as children are growing up and new babies coming to their life, they would like to do it every five years. Such a great idea! I should do something like that with my own family. Since there were small children involved, we had to photograph at noon, but everything worked out. Entire session was really relaxing and fun and the fall weather was just perfect.

Na sve rodne mesto ktere se meni k nepoznani mam stale dobre vzpominky. A tak kdyz jsem planovala cestu domu, nenechala jsem si ujit skolni sraz, kam se dostavilo 1300 byvalych i soucasnych zaku nasi zakladni skoly. Dekuji vsem kdo se podilel na oraganizaci. Vse povedlo na jednicku. Pocasi, lide a nalada byla nezapomenutelna. Velke diky take vsem “Acakum” & “Becakum” kteri dorazili ze vsech koutu Republiky, byvalim ucitelum a lidem, kteri se snazi Krasnou Lipu pozvednout. Doufam, ze se zase brzy v takove sestave potkame.
Velke podekovani pani ucitelce Malikove!

I just returned from Europe, specifically from the Czech Republic.
We traveled from my hometown Krásná Lípa (north) to Karlovy Vary (west)
then south to Český Krumlov and then back to the Czech Capital City – Prague.
I could not put my camera down.The beauty is hard to explain in words, pictures
describe it much more. Therefore I would like to share and start my blog this way.
If you have any questions about the hotels or towns, feel free to ask.
