Jacob is such a stellar handsome boy and thoroughly enjoyed his Bar Mitzvah at The Presidio Golf Club in San Francisco, CA. He loves the ocean so there were jelly fish and shells everywhere. It was a wonderful night surrounded by friends and family from around the world. Lisa of Lisa Feldman Design had graffiti t-shirt and hat painting and the room looked like a summer’s day at the beach. Such a fun evening and getting to a bar mitzvah photographer at this sweet boy’s party was a lot of fun!

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

A stellar Bat Mitzvah at Rodef Sholom for Lauren! I love that one of the kids had a tattoo that said vote! As a Bar and Bat Mitzvah photographer I get to capture so many fun images of their day and there is always so much emotion. It’s such an honor to shoot these images and turn them into family heirlooms. I try to capture all the details and going ons in an artistic way but being a photojournalist type of photographer I prefer to shoot with a long lens not to disturb the conversation. These Bat Mitzvah images are memories to last many life times! Mazel Tov!

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!

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.

This was the most amazing Bat Mitzvah ever — with an Alice in Wonderland theme, but of course they called it “Allie in Wonderland.” Just look at these Bat Mitzvah photography! These mitzvah images were bursting with fun and excitement. I photographed this with mostly natural light and then used an on camera flash after it got dark. There was a Mad Hatter magician and circus games under red and white striped cabana tents, and a silent disco where everyone was given headphones to tune in and dance to the playlist of their choice. To top it off, the moms did a mob squad choreographed dance surprise for the kids with a hilarious confetti explosion at the end! Booking a fantastic Bar or Bat Mitzvah photographer is so important so you have all these beautiful images as memories or to showcase your images in an album which surely will become a family heirloom!
