It was a great big weekend a few weeks ago at Beth El Synagogue as I had the pleasure to photograph Ellie, Libby and Zach celebrating their b’nah mitzvah as one big family. Working with the cousins and their families was so fun and everyone was great to work with.  The weather even cooperated and we were able to sneak outside for some fun portraits.  Saturday night the gang all gathered again at Medina Country Club to party and let loose.  With Sarge and the Level 11 crew on the dance floor, Spin Art, a photo booth and Game Truck, there was plenty to entertain and of course some great food.  Good times for three great kids.

Mazel tov to Ellie, Libby and Zach!  Enjoy the video and then follow this link to see all the fun photos from their big b’nah mitzvah weekend.

Another weekend and another great family to work with.  I’ve had the pleasure to photograph Jonah’s family a couple times now and it’s always a fun time.   This time didn’t disappoint either.  Jonah’s  become a fine young man and the nice fall weather allowed us to get outside for some wonderful photos.  Here are few teasers to enjoy.

Mazel tov to Jonah!  Follow this link to see all the great photos from Jonah’s bar mitzvah.

Arie’s bar mitzvah was quite the show stopper.  After Saturday morning services I met up with Arie and his family for a fun portrait session.  It was quite the session with lots of cousins, aunts and uncles.  Some had even come all the way from Brazil to help Arie celebrate his big day.  That night we all gathered again at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater where Arie put on a show, displaying his love for Broadway musicals.  The Theater was decked out to the nines and Total Entertainment was there to help set the stage with music and dancing later in the evening.  The hit of the night was Arie singing a song in front of the whole room and then the house really came down when his mom joined him on stage for a dance/tap number.  They were fantastic!  It was a great night for a very talented kid.

Mazel tov to Arie and his family.  Enjoy the photos and video recap and then follow this link to see all the great photos from Arie’s bar mitzvah.

It was surf’s up for Jessica’s bat mitzvah.  She’s a wonderful young lady and it was a pleasure doing portraits with her and her family.  It was a beautiful morning so we even had a chance to get some great photos outside too.  Saturday night it was Hawaiian Luau time.  The Four Season’s Dance Studio was decked out with balloons, a Tiki Bar and Lei’s for everyone walking in the door.  The Level 11 crew was on hand energizing the dance floor and playing games for Jessica’s very enthusiastic crowd.  It was a very fun night to cap of a big wave weekend for Jessica.  Mazel tov!
