Let's be honest: 12 and 13 year olds are unique. They're moody and may push all of your buttons. But becoming a bar/bat mitzvah is hard work and you've helped them navigate studying, culture, and life to get them where they are today. Mozel tov! Out of all the events I photograph, I've done more bar/bat mitzvahs than anything else. Perhaps it's because I'm a secondary teacher and get adolescents. Perhaps it's because I like dancing as much as they do. Whatever the case, I'm happy to capture this significant milestone so you've got plenty of photographic blackmail later in their lives.
