Jonah’s Bar Mitzvah

Last weekend, I got to shoot another event for one of the Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School families. I’ve worked so much with this community, and it is always nice to show up to an event and see familiar faces. I had a wonderful time photographing Jonah’s Bar Mitzvah. (This family is particularly familiar because I photographed Jaclyn–Jonah’s sister–and her celebration last year.) We started with a few photos at the temple, and then moved on to the party at Whirly Ball. I will admit that I had no idea what Whirly Ball was before this event, but it was fun to find out! This is sincerely one of the kindest families I’ve ever worked with, and–as cliche as it sounds–you really can see how much they love each other. Here are some photos from the big day.

Some family portraits:

Next? Whirly Ball!

Jonah scoring a… goal? Ball? Shot?

And, of course, there were speeches.

(And lots of girly attention.)
