It was this past January when Sarah headed up to Connecticut for this amazing family and their third and final Bar Mitzvah.  This time it was Will’s turn.  The weather was cold outside, but the sunshine made outdoor photos bearable for this hot and good-looking family.  Even the family dog got in the action and posed for Sarah’s camera too!

Our love affair with this family began many summers ago in Fire Island with Sarah and family beach photos, and grew into Mitzvahs, weddings, and more babies!  It is clients like this that we feel so blessed.  Sharing history, memories and looking forward to new memories from Will’s big bash in the Fall when this crazy COVID Pandemic is behind us.

After family photos in their cool home Sarah headed over to Temple Shalom in Greenwich for traditional Bema and Torah photos.  Will had custom yarmulkes as well as custom face masks which are now the hottest Mitzvah trend.  Everyone wore masks when needed and all social distance and Sarah stayed safe and abided by all pandemic rules.

Will had his three grandparents and his cousins there to share in the family pride. “It was such a thrill to see three generations again and be with people” Sarah said.  COVID-19 and the pandemic cannot keep people from celebrating life and sharing together.

We love shooting Mini Mitzvahs with Macro family love!
