Once in a blue moon, I get to photograph Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs. I don’t think I would like to do this every weekend – these 13-year-olds dance like crazy and, believe me, catching them in action is quite a work-out. Yet, doing just a few Bar Mitzvahs a year is great! I love the occasion itself – what a beautiful tradition this is! I also Love watching [and photographing] happy proud parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles… Love being a part of such a wonderful family celebration, and of course, LOVE taking photos of the kids. All in all, after photographing mostly weddings, taking kids’ & families’ photos is fun and refreshing!
Here are the photos from Sofia’s bat mitzvah, which took place this past December at the Renaissance Hotel in White Plains. She’s a sweet, extremely bright, well-mannered beautiful girl, and photographing her, her lovely older sister and parents was such a pleasure!!!
