This family, from immediate to extended, knows how to love, laugh and live. I truly aspire to give my children what this mom and dad have clearly made a priority to give theirs. Dad’s slide show of B’s life actually made me cry. Not shed a tear… I mean cry. You can tell that this mom and dad don’t just parent their children, they enjoy them and want to live life to the fullest with them. Enjoy!

I have started shooting Bar & Bat Mitzvah’s a lot in the last year and I am not kidding when I say that Magen Boys Entertainment is everywhere!! With kids who started Hebrew school this year and who are in pre-comp hip hop – this video makes this mom crack up!!! OY!

Meet Joey. Although he and his family are very old friends and we had just done a pizza night the year before, I was not prepared. Joey changes at lightning speeds. Joey walks softly and carries a big stick. Watch out James Cameron, mover over George Lucas. Joey is here. Seriously.

In early December 2010 I had the pleasure of photographing this very charming young mans Bar Mitzvah. Congratulations Benji for doing such a great job!! The deep joy and pride of your family was brimming over as they watched your every move and held a sparkle in their eyes that said I’ve known you as a wonderful child who grew to be a wonderful boy and you will become a man we will continue to be proud of. The service was in the chapel of the Beth Tikvah synagogue on a Sunday morning and I had the opportunity to take photos during the service which usually doesn’t happen if it were in the main hall. We lost more than half of the scheduled portrait session because the security guard didn’t show up before the service but I think we got wonderful family pictures because of this good natured and easygoing family. I have say that I was really impressed with the photographic opportunities of the chapel. The room was small and intimate, the stained glass windows colorful but not overly busy and the room was infused with beautiful natural light bringing the woodwork to life.
Here are some images from Benji’s day.
