Robbie’s bar mitzvah was full of summertime fun.  It was so nice to work with his family again, capturing all the fun memories of his big weekend.  We did portraits on Friday at the synagogue and then again on Saturday morning before services.  Robbie did a fantastic job leading services.  I know his parents are very proud.  Saturday night then was time to relax on the shores of Lake Minnetonka for some camp style fun and celebration. With games like Gaga, Roof Ball, Capture the flag and Tug-o-war, Amy Zaroff + Events did a wonderful job planning and running the show.  Knocker Ball was new one to me with everyone climbing into these giant inflatable balls and having a good old time bumping and bouncing their way around the yard. Later in the evening Ross and the A-List crew fired up the dance floor with some good tunes and dancing.  Couldn’t have asked for a better summer evening celebrating a great young man.  Mazel tov Robbie!

Mazel tov to Max and his family on his recent bat mitzvah.  I had a great time photographing his big weekend.  Saturday morning portraits and service photos and then Saturday night it was time to get Medieval at Oak Ridge Country Club.  Amy Zaroff + Events had the place looking quite regal after a quick change of plans due to some weather concerns.  Daring flame breathers and a tasty maple syrup dipping station greeting guests as they arrived.  Inside the ballroom it was Sarge and the Level 11 crew on hand with games and dancing and bouncy jousting station for kids of all ages.  It was a fun crowd and a special evening fit for a king.

It was so fun to photograph Sage and her family once again in celebration of her recent bat mitzvah.  The portrait session went off without a hitch and then Saturday evening the place to be was the Profile Event Center in Minneapolis.  Always a fun venue, the place was decked out in ever changing colored LEDs, and twinkle lights.  The Mobile Photo Wall was there along with Grant’s Caricatures and the awesome crew from Level 11 mixing things up on the dance floor.  Games and lots of great food filled out the early evening and then the crowd got dancing.  It was a spirited crowd which made for great photos and an wonderful evening that Sage won’t soon forget.  Mazel tov to Sage!

I remember when Mason was just a little guy at his cousin’s bar mitzvah.  So fun to see him grown up and having his own bar mitzvah now.  We did a portrait session early on Saturday before services and then afterward friends and family gathered at Cafe Lurcat to celebrate.  The great food and awesome desserts took care of everyones appetite, and then Keith King from Simply Entertaining got the games and music rolling to spice up the rest of the afternoon.  The always popular wax hands crew was also on hand sculpting everyones digits.  It was a great afternoon for a great kid!  Mazel tov Mason!
