Bar / Bat Mitzvah

Capturing the Joy of Your Simcha!

For over 22 years, I have photographed bar and bat mitzvah celebrations across the Twin Cities. I have also celebrated my own son (in 2008) and daughter’s (in 2005) b’nei mitzvot.  I consider myself as having great expertise in this area of photography and life. 🙂

My bar and bat mitzvah photography is unique because I blend my love of Torah, avodah (worship) and gemilut chasidim (acts of loving kindness) with my love of photography, capturing photographs with a Jewish lens.   From the Bubbe’s hand made kippah to the kiss on her granddaughter’s punim, I have an intimate and personal knowledge of the best shots, poses and moments of the bar and bat mitzvah- from the sanctuary to the kiddush luncheon and celebration photos.

I like to think of my bar and bat mitzvah photography as my bread and butter, or should I call it my challah and baba ganoush?!  🙂

Breadth and Depth of B’nei Mitzvot

I have photographed bar and bat mitzvah celebrations at Temple Israel, Bet Shalom, Beth El, Shir Tikvah, Adath Jeshrun, Beth Jacob, Mount Zion and Temple of Aaron.  My home synagogue is Mount Zion Temple in St. Paul.  I am a Past President there and I like to call it my second home.  Please go to Your Photos to see all the galleries and names of children and synagogues I have photographed.  These galleries, Your Photos, will remain on-line forever, so you can always view your photos.

I bring a creative eye, a sense of humor and much patience to your event and to my job every day.  Its really not a “job” per se; rather to me, it’s my passion and love.  I love photography and I love Judaism and I receive great joy in putting the two together to create what I call the whole megillah.

Mazel Tov and L’chaim!
