This spring marked only the 100th anniversary of the first American Bat Mitzvah service. Look who caught up with history and made a surprise appearance at Kate’s Bat Mitzvah party at the Army Navy Country Club in early April, just one day shy of her 13th birthday. Have you ever danced the hora with George […]
Finally sharing this spunky girl’s rehearsal photos at Temple Rodef Shalom in late March. Mazel Tov to Kate and the whole family! There was so much love from Kate’s doting grandparents and parents. And check out her sweet big brother Jack whose Bar Mitzvah I photographed pre-pandemic, about 30 years ago – just kidding – […]
One of the bonuses of Ryan’s pandemic-delayed Bar Mitzvah was getting to document both the ceremony AND the party – pre-omicron, at the Westwood Country Club in Vienna – this past fall. It’s a photographer’s rare privilege to be clicking the shutter during the actual B’nai Mitzvah service, rather than the rehearsal a few days […]
Big Mazel Tov to William and his family on his Congregation Etz Hayim Bar Mitzvah. The amount of hard work that goes into preparing for a B’nai Mitzvah is truly awe inspiring. Can you see the pure *J*O*Y* in William’s eyes for finally reaching his big day? Congratulations to the proud parents as well. It […]
Ever since I met Eloise at her brother’s Bar Mitzvah a couple of years ago, I couldn’t wait to photograph her big day. (Just look at the first photo below from her brother’s Bimah Session and you’ll know what I mean). This girl is so spirited and energetic, kind, funny, and smart – just pure […]
I have rarely witnessed so much poise and maturity in a young girl who hadn’t even turned 13 when I took these photos of her. If her parents had told me she was a High School Senior, I wouldn’t have thought twice. Seriously, I still demand to see her birth certificate. So much love in […]
This session had been a long time coming. Not once, but twice, my clients rescheduled their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah because of COVID, in the hopes that they could have a proper celebration with all the bells and whistles of a well-deserved party. The universe had a different plan, and this young lady showed a level […]

“Forty and Fabulous” was the theme for Randa’s auspicious DC Penthouse Party, and a fabulous celebration it was at the top of the wharf. The penthouse of LaVie in DC provided a stylish, contemporary indoor and outdoor setting with breathtaking 360 degree views of the waterfront and the city, including – strangely enough – into […]
