As a Jewish parent of both a bar and bat mitzvah, I have first hand experience of all the planning and executing this important event requires. I understand and respect the effort and work that goes into making this a joyful milestone in your family's life. I am knowledgeable of the rules of various synagogues down to the Jewish traditions that occur at the reception. Working as a professional photographer for over 15 years, I have photographed many of them and can proudly say, I specialize in them. I would be honored to photograph your child's special day.
Prior to your special day, you can expect me to build a relationship with you and your family so you all feel comfortable sharing this intimate day with me. As a result, your authentic and candid expressions will come through in the photos. I accomplish this by meeting with you and hopefully, your entire family, and asking lots of questions and even sharing some laughs. I think it's important t familiarize myself with all the important people attending the event and their relationships with you. I take the extra time because I feel it is worth the time. I pride myself on having the maturity and strong interpersonal skills needed to establish a friendly, yet professional, relationship with all involved.
Using my years of experience, you can expect me to take charges during the formal photos so it runs smoothly and efficiently, but then to easily blend into the group so as not to disrupt the natural flow of the party. Rest assured, I am always present and ready to capture those great moments so you can relive them for years to come!
