As we are approaching a new Spring 2022, we are reflecting to last spring and one year into the pandemic.  Temple services were happening with face masks and precaution, and we all began getting back to the work we love so much and celebrating with families.

Gabbi, her two moms and two brothers met Sarah at the beautiful Central Synagogue to capture her becoming Bat Mitzvah.  Gabbi was able to share this momentous event in her life with her grandparents by her side.  This was remarkable for all!

After Bema photos this cool family changes into jeans and casual clothing for a photo session in the neighborhood around the Temple.  Sarah saw a graffiti wall that inspired her for the photo session along with street photos like an “Abbey Road photo”, Park Avenue and all the city lights as the family crossed the street at a traffic light.  Some  of Sarah’s favorite photography is captured while playing safely in traffic! Ha!

We are so excited for the boys B’Nai Mitzvah in 2023 and look forward to another wonderful Mitzvah with this great family.
