Had the pleasure of photographing this lovely young lady’s bat mitzvah. Since their temple is conservative, no pictures could be taken on the Sabbath, so we met twice. Once the day before her big day to do some pictures in the temple, and then the next day at her celebration. The party was at Warehouse 5 (they always do a great job) and everyone was having a great time which made my job nice and easy! Especially loved the part beforehand where we got to go outside for some portraits on the super awesome grounds under the bridge. Even though it was freeeeeeezing, Ella was a trouper and we got some fun stuff. And btw, is that not the coolest Yad (the pointer for reading the torah) you’ve ever seen? A lacrosse stick. Loved that!!
