A Bar Mitzvah is two things: poignant and fun!
I was blessed to be able to capture this special occasion for such a special young man, a kid absolutely brimming with the joy of life and so much potential!
It's a rite of passage so steeped in thousands of years of tradition. The richness of the history represented, both for each individual family and throughout the ages, made an impact on me and had me wishing that every child had a similar type of passage of their own.
The happiness at an event like a Bar Mitzvah is contagious. My face was sore from smiling so much by the end of the day!
