Bar Mitzvah Photographer at Congregation Emanu-el and The Terra Gallery in San Francisco, CA. Eli.

Eli had such a fantastic Bar Mitzvah at Congregation Emanu-el and the party at The Terra Gallery in San Francisco.  The design concept by Jayne Greenberg at Just Jayne Events was brilliant as always.  The Terra Gallery is such an incredible space for parties as there are two distinct rooms that are very large open floor plans.  The video montage for this Bar Mitzvah was so emotionally charged there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  I wish this sweet boy, Eli, the best life has to offer him!

Lily had the best party ever at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon, CA. Sheryl Denker of Sheryl Denker Events and Design.   I mean look at the smile on her face as she celebrates with all her friends and family!  Honestly, there couldn’t be a sweeter girl in the world than Lily.  Even with the pressure of all her friends there, she played with her baby cousin and made sure everyone was attended to.  I wish her the world and everything in it!  xoxo

 

Bar Mitzvah Photographer at Sweetwater in Mill Valley in Marin. Kolby in Zoolander.

Wow!  Having a Zoolander theme for your Bar Mitzvah is nothing short of genius. And to have your party at The Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley is off the charts! There were the best costumes and they even had a walk off where the kids acted out scenes from the movie and did their best catwalk shenanigans.  To say this party was FUN would be the understatement of the century.  Kolby was so wonderful at his services earlier in the day at his Grandmother’s home in Mill Valley but at the party he let loose!  From gift card prizes for trivia games, to constant yummy appetizers going around the room, a photo booth, a basketball hoop game, and a DJ that was fantastic….this party didn’t stop!  Loved every second of photographing this Bar Mitzvah party and hope Kolby and his family continue to have this much fun in years to come!

Bar Mitzvah Photographer Los Altos, CA.Congregation Beth Am Bar and Bat Mitzvah Photographer. Henry.

Henry is a big skier so wanted his Bar Mitzvah to have a snow theme.  Rachael of Rachael Cruz Events went all out and had an igloo the kids could hang out in that churned out fake snow all night.  They had giant pine cones, snow glob crafts and all the kids got the cutest animal hats for the winter.  Such a fun evening with great kids and family around to help celebrate.  The service was at Congregation Beth Am in Los Altos Hills and the party was at Los Altos Golf and Country Club.  Such a fantastic party!

Bat Mitzvah Photographer in Palo Alto -Shaya’s Bat Mitzvah at The Corinthian Ballroom in San Jose, CA

Shaya is an incredible girl and her discipline and talent paid off recently when she won the National Junior Dance Competition.  So I had her do a lot of spinning for me when I took her portraits as no-one spins better than Shaya.  She had a ballerina themed Bat Mitzvah in San Jose at the Corinthian Ballroom in San Jose, CA and it was so much fun and each centerpiece had a pair of ballet shoes hanging from it.  I really love this family and wish them many more successes and happiness.

Bat Mitzvah Photographer at Stinson Beach, Marin County. Lily Stern.

Lily’s super fun bat mitzvah was at the Stinson Beach Community Center. Everything about it was awesome.  Look at eh super fun and colorful Bat Mtizvah photos (And let’s hear it for chocolate fountains!) There were so many activities to photograph at her bat mitzvah like the t shirt and hat designing to the rad photo booth.  Everyone had a blast and I had a blast being the bat mitzvah photographer!  I  mean look at those faces!

 

 

Bar Mitzvah at Congregation Beth Am and JCC in Palo Alto. Zach.

The Bar Mitzvah Services were at the Congregation Beth Am, and the party was at the JCC in Palo Alto. Love being at Bar or Bat mitzvah photographer as it’s all about the kids and then the grown ups become kids again.  It’s a magical coming up age party where imaginations run wild and the theme’s are endless.  Zach is a big sports buff so he wanted his bar mitzvah photos to have an ESPN quality to them.  I think his Mitzvah rocked and he accomplished just that!  FUN was had by all!
