This was a such a terrific bar mitzvah weekend. It’s always special for me when I have the chance to work with a family on all of their children’s bar/bat mitzvahs. I spent time with this family two years ago for their older son’s bar mitzvah and now I was there to see his younger brother shine. This young guy is no shrinking violet and I hope that his big personality shines through in the pictures from his pre-bat mitzvah portrait shoot, the temple portraits and his party. Being a witness to a family’s closeness, laughter, love and joy is just about the best job I could ask for.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from this bar mitzvah:
