I met Wyatt’s lovely mom last spring at a pre-prom party, where I was taking photos of my “niece” Elizabeth and a bunch of her friends, including Wyatt’s older brother. Then we met again on the sidelines of the middle school football field where Wyatt, Jack & Patrick were playing Oceanside. I was so happy when she asked me to photograph Wyatt’s Bar Mitzvah at Central Synagogue and the reception at Coyote Grill. It was a gorgeous day with a fantastic family & lots of friends.
Wyatt did his best to tolerate me for as long as possible. He did really well. I know how annoying I can be, especially with a camera!Wyatt’s mom is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever met in real life, and she (and her husband, too) is as nice as she is beautiful. Did I mention she’s from Australia? And has the coolest accent!Party time!Dad and his childhood friends. How great that they are STILL friends!Grandma flew in from Australia where she lives to celebrate Wyatt’s day. Dad, his twin brother and their sisters. Such a great and close knit family!!A very nice and subdued candle lighting and blessing of the challah. A bar mitzvah wouldn’t be a bar mitzvah without the chair. Wyatt, thank you so much for putting up with me for the day. You were a great sport and a gentleman!
