Over the summer I was honored to photograph a very special Bat Mitzvah of a very special young man. I have worked with this family for many years and have always walked away with a lighter heart after each one of our sessions. I am overwhelmed with how much love they have for each other. The oldest child in this family is non verbal autistic. This event was for Paul. I was blown away by the service that was held in the small chapel at Beth El. (A side note, this is where I shot my very first Bat Mitzvah portraits and LOVE this room! It is such a sacred place) It is not usual for us to photograph the service but this was not your ordinary service. It was held on Sunday morning and then family and friends headed over to Longwood Gardens in Philadelphia, one of Paul’s favorite place. I broke down in tears quite a few times during speeches and prayers. Spiritual and uplifting are my two works when I think back to this experience…. Please just let me share the images….

So we love photographing “rights of passage” and we love to photograph this age group. We have a very different perspective on this age, our goal is to find the true character of the young man or woman we photograph. We want to document their personality. Our portrait sessions are usually months before the big day where they can not only get used to being photographed but lets them relax. We also suggest to go do something they love and be photographed doing that activity. Most young girls do not like being photographed because they are so self conscious and can not see their true beauty! (we all can relate) After our sessions, we hope to give them the reality of their beauty.
