“Hi, what can I get you?” The sweet woman behind the counter at Lazy Bean Cafe in Teaneck, New Jersey just asked me as I reviewed the menu hanging above.   “Um.. How about a Decaf coffee please, thank you so much!” I say as I hand her my credit card.  I don’t remember the […]

“Do you want to know where we are going?” I asked as Robert as I looked over at him. He was all dressed up in his gray suite and blue tie looking as sharp as ever. He hopped into the passenger side of my KIA SOUL. “Nope, just drive and I’ll find out once we […]

“Aunt Yael, is your job hard?” Shira, my nine year old niece asked me as we sat behind my computer looking through some of the amazing weddings I photographed this year so far.

There we were, on a roof deck bar on the 24th floor of a Manhattan hotel. The view of the city was absolutely stunning. It was the first time in years that I felt this kind of awe for the City. We were surrounded by friends. The weather was perfect and Robert and I just […]

In todays world of glorified entrepreneurs, small business owners and collaborative work spaces, secret sauce is no longer just the hushed, untold ingredients Aunt Marge puts in her spaghetti, but its the question that keeps us, entrepreneurs, up at night and gets us out of bed early.

Robert looked confused… He was sitting across from me at Gryphon Coffee when I opened this fancy box and pulled out a pair of beautiful pink wide framed glasses. “Why do you have glasses?!” he asked. I smiled and slid them on to my face. “How do I look!?” I responded as I posed across […]

I am currently sitting on the porch of our Airbnb located in the heart of Jerusalem, Israeli music is flowing from the cafe downstairs, the chatter of birds are chirping around us, I can still feel the buzz of the Israeli Shook and Robert is taking a cat nap inside. This weeks tip of the […]

Can I tell you something? I don’t watch Game of Thrones. I probably shouldn’t admit it, but I just couldn’t get into it when it first aired. Maybe it’s because it came out when I was living in Israel before Netflix and Video Prime were a real thing. Maybe it’s because I have a hard […]
