After over twenty years of shooting weddings, I recently decided that it was time to mix it up. As much as I love the excitement of gearing up for a nonstop action packed wedding day, the physical and mental stress of so many of those consecutive Saturdays is starting to take its toll on me and my family. Bar & Bat Mitzvah coverage is broken up into separate parts ~ the creative portrait session, traditional portraits at the synogogue, the service, and the reception. Most often, photography is not allowed during the service, so hey, I may actually be able to make my kids’ swim meets or soccer games more than once this summer!
With a little bit of advertising and a lot of word of mouth from the sisterhood (thanks, girls!) I have three great Mitzvahs on the books for 2012, and they are all just around the corner! It’s been such a thrill getting to know Phillip, Jake & Lena and their families, and creating these beautiful portraits. I look forward to parts two and three!
