bar mitzvah photography

This past fall, B.D. held the party for his Bar Mitzvah at the National Press Club.  I was honored to photograph the event.

While Valentine’s Day is popularly associated with romantic love, I spent February 14th photographing Connor, his wonderful family and his good friends, who turned out to observe and celebrate his Bar Mitzvah.  The bond of love within Connor’s family is so evident that I could feel it.  I hope these images capture the mutual pride and love that I witnessed all day between Connor and his family.

I thank Connor and his family for allowing me the privilege of sharing this special day with them.
