Jacob

Had a great time helping Jacob and his family celebrate his Bar Mitzvah recently.  The weather was wonderful for his portrait session so it was nice to finally get outside a bit for some fun photos.  Jacob made my job easy.  He’s got a great smile.  Saturday night it was time hit the hardwood for a little celebration at Medina Country Club.  The crew from Level 11 was on hand to fire it up on the dance floor along with their always fun Digital Graffiti Board.  Basketball is a big part of Jacob’s life and the hoops game in the corner of the ballroom was very popular with him and his friend all evening. It was fun evening for a great kid.

Mazel tov to Jacob and his family.  Follow this link to see all the great photos from Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah.

Maya_bat_mitzvah

We captured some wonderful photographs from Maya’s Bat Mitzvah and I thought I’d share a few of my favorites.  Maya’s got a great smile and was so easy to work with and from what I hear she did an excellent job leading services.  When it was time to let loose and celebrate, friends and family gathered at the Sheraton West to help Maya party down.  A-List Entertainment was there putting on a great show with music and games all evening long.  The Traveling Photo Booth was there for some goofy fun and of course great food and desserts to top it all off.  Mazel Tov to Maya on her big weekend.

Laura_bat_mitzvah

I had the pleasure to help celebrate Laura’s bat mitzvah recently.  Photographing her brother Sam’s bar mitzvah a few years back was a blast and this time was no different.  Laura’s family has always been a treat to work with.  We captured some portraits earlier in the week and then Saturday morning I joined them for Laura’s service and hung around to finish the afternoon with a few more family photos.  Laura did an amazing job helping to lead services.  I know her friends and family are proud of her.  Saturday night everyone gathered at the Minneapolis Central Public Library and my colleague, Myron Wolf, was there to photograph all the fun action in my place.  Ross and the A-list Entertainment crew were on hand also, keeping the dance moving and groov’in all night.  There was good food, good friends and an all-around good time had by all.  I was sorry I couldn’t be there.

Mazel tov to Laura, she did  great!  Enjoy all the photos here and then follow this link to the online photo gallery of Laura’s Bat Mitzvah.

Bat Mitzvah Photography

Madeline is sweet young lady and I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph her bat mitzvah a few weeks ago.  The whole family was a pleasure to work with and we got some really great photos during a portrait session early Saturday morning before her service.  That evening everyone returned to Mount Zion Temple to help Madeline celebrate her big day.  It was a beautiful evening and with the A-list Entertainment crew on hand everything went perfectly.  Madeline did an excellent job with the candle lighting ceremony and then things really got crazy with a fabulous Hora and some high flying action.  It was a fun crowd and a fun evening all around.

Aliya_Bat_MitzvahMazel tov to Aliya and her family!  I had a great time helping them celebrate her bat mitzvah a few weeks ago.  Aliya is wonderful young lady full of charm and a very infectious smile.  We did a portrait session early Saturday morning before services and then I hung around photographed her as she help lead the congregation through morning services.  She did a great job.  Saturday evening was a time to let loose and party with friends and family. A fun crowd and lots of familiar faces. It was an evening that Aliya will never forget.
