The Transparent cover is a great option for featuring an enlarged portrait on the front of your album. A textured material called Sidewinder was used for the binding of this album.

The main album was paired with a lovely smaller version for the parents using the popular material Whitesnake.

The main album was paired with a lovely smaller version of the album. I love how these two materials coordinate. The material used for the smaller album is called Whitesnake.

Gabi’s Bat Mitzvah at Gustavinos in NYC

Mazel Tov to Gabi. It was an honor to be a part of your special day and create these memories for you!  You are such a warm and sweet girl. Best wishes for a very bright future! Over the years our photography repertoire has expanded beyond weddings and families. We began photographing Bar/Bat Mitzvah’s years ago, thinking we’d do a few here and there.  However, this area of the business is in high demand and we suddenly have found ourselves photographing tons of Mitzvah’s every year. Every Mitzvah session begins with a family session focusing on the child of honor.  The images from this session are often used to decorate the party itself.  They also become a wonderful keepsake for the entire family.  Below are some of the shots taken of Gabi and her family in Central Park.

Photography is usually not permitted during the ceremony if it is being held in a temple.  Some families opt to have a mini session before the ceremony begins. In other cases the ceremony is performed on location of the party itself and for those the entire ceremony is photographed.
The party is just plain AWESOME!  It’s very much like a wedding.  The free spirit of the 12 and 13 year old kids is infectious and before you know it the adults are out on the dance floor shakin it to Gaga and Black Eyed Peas.  It’s just so much fun! The decor of this event was stunning, thanks to uber talented event planner Nancy from N Event Productions.
