So usually I post a bar or bat mitzvah all in one post, but there were so many awesome moments to capture on Zoe’s special day that I couldn’t narrow it down. Lucky you- you’re going to get 3 days worth of Zoe’s bat mitzvah for your viewing pleasure.
Mom booked me for this date about 4 years ago, so you can imagine how excited I was to photograph it! (A little background: Zoe’s big sister Carly was Jack & Patrick’s safety patrol person back when they were in Kindergarten and she was in 5th grade and they share the same birthday. And then we figured out that mom’s cousin and I went to sleep away camp together about 10,000 years ago. Small world!)
Zoe’s a sweetheart and a dancer and was so fun to photograph. The whole family is pretty amazing with both older sisters in Ivy League colleges (Carly at UPenn, Amanda at Princeton), funny like crazy and so close and love each other so much. So without further ado, here is the beautiful bat mitzvah girl herself…
Love the moment caught between grandpa & granddaughter. Whenever I see them walking around town, they’re always holding hands. Not all portraits have to be boring and stuffy.
Lots of pretty ladies. Mindy, you’re so pretty! (and see, you gave me a great smile!)
More to come on the blog tomorrow. But first a big thank you to my photografriend and assistant for the evening, Lara for all your help that night. And for the laughs- you are crouching tiger, hidden assistant for sure!
