Paloma had to walk through a few disappointments as her Bat Mitzvah was rescheduled a few times due to Covid but she finally got to show everyone how hard she worked and all her family and friends came out to support her! It was a beautiful sunny day at Unitarian Universalist Congregation Marin in San Rafael and everyone was very happy as The CDC had just announced that people whom were vaccinated no longer needed to wear masks so everyone was mostly mask free and finally able to hug each other. I couldn’t be prouder of Paloma as she sailed through her Bat Mitzvah with ease and grace and the photographs show just that! Mazel Tov!

It’s Den’s turn to tell her daughter how incredibly proud she is of Paloma and she almost made it without shedding a tear. Almost!

Congratulations Paloma! You did a great job at your Bat Mitzvah and everyone couldn’t be happier for you! Mazel tov!

Just look at the love between these two siblings in this Mitzvah Service photo. Lily had her Bat Mitzvah rehearsal at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon, CA and her big party is coming up soon! So I get another chance to be the best Mitzvah photographer in San Francisco. She’s such a sweet girl and I am so excited to watch her have the time of her life with her family and friends. Honestly, these kids inspire me to always try to see things as a photographer through their lens. They have such an open and optimistic vision of the future. I listen and then I did deep and try to capture the best and most honest moment all the while framing the photo with the use of available light, architecture and emotion so your bar or bat mitzvah photography will have a unique and personal point of view.

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!

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!
