We just had to share this beautiful family with you as this is the last and final Bat Mitzvah for them. Sarah was lucky to capture all three Mitzvahs and had to wait a long time for Hayley! She was 6 years old at the very first Bat Mitzvah for one of her big sisters. So cool.
The day started in New Jersey at the family’s home. The fall foliage was at its peak as this was the very first week of November. Of course, Sarah had so much fun because she knows the family so well and has such wonderful history and rapport with them. It was so natural to be mischievous and get in a leaf fight with them during the photo shoot!!!
2020 was the “year of the pets” for all the family micro-mitzvahs. Of course, the two-family dogs got in the action for the photo shoot. Sarah was impressed with how well they listened to dad and cooperated!!!
Hayley’s Bat Mitzvah was supposed to be November 7, 2020 and Sarah suggested that she invite her besties over to catch a few pics in their branded sweatshirt gift! The girls wore their masks and stayed socially distanced and were still able to share a little something with their friend and wish her a Mazel Tov on her big day!!! The party is rescheduled for the Fall 2021 and we look forward to celebrating!
Next stop was the magnificent Temple Emanuel in Closter, New Jersey. We love capturing the incredible dome ceiling! We are so happy for this family family!!! We cannot wait for the weddings!!! LOL
