On this cold yet calm Wednesday I want to share with you the beautiful Batmitvah of a special girl, Samantha, whom I photographed this summer.
People usually refer to Batmitzvahs as a Birthday celebration. It’s a very special and beautiful time for a young girl, who, according to Jewish law, enters her adulthood at the age of twelve. Hence, Bat/Barmitzvah are very important in Jewish community and I enjoy capturing these moments for my clients. To me Batmitzvah is a celebration of love, family, youth and life. There are so many emotional moments that take place: getting ready in the morning, the love exchanged between the parents and the child, welcoming of friends and family, the blessing and cutting of Challah, candle lighting, dance with the father, to name just a few. I am so happy to have been able to take part of this celebration of life and youth.
