Alex and his family came to me from a great past bsquared client who’s son’s bar mitzvah I had photographed, so I knew it would be a good one! And they didn’t disappoint! Alex was a great kid and his family was all super nice. We met at the East End Temple in downtown NYC, which was really pretty (but had no heat. NO HEAT! And it was 19 degrees out that morning. I’m just happy that all of my shivering didn’t cause blurry photos!!) Alex was a real trooper, even heading outside for a few quick shots with me. I was only there until the service began (no photography allowed during the actual service) but got in as much as I could before I had to go.
Grandpa and his boys.The family tallis from 1922. The rabbi came in early and gave us a little access to the Torah and a little practice for Alex. The last shot from the balcony before I got in trouble and had to go. (guess I wasn’t really supposed to be shooting from up there). Oh well, still got a shot in!
