It was such a pleasure to photograph Jess’ Bat Mitzvah. A few years ago I photographed her big brother Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah. It was great to see how much they have all grown up! It was a beautiful day for outdoor portraits outside Congregation Or Ami.
Jess remembered the photos I did of her brother Daniel on the wall outside the synagogue and she wanted to take some like that too. Unfortunately there was now a bunch of bushes planted there….so we went on a hunt!
When I’m photographing a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, I really have two people in mind. Mom wants a beautiful portrait of her family and wants to remember Jess as she is right now.
While my Bat Mitzvah girl wants to feel like she’s on a model shoot, look like she’s 16 and have some super cool shots that she can show to her friends. This really wasn’t a problem, since Jess is just gorgeous!
Stay tuned! Pics of the celebration to come!
