Nicole’s Bat Mitzvah: June 25, 2017 This was my last mitzvah of the season before summer camp and wedding season, and it was the perfect way to end the year. From the first photograph of the night so the last limbo, there was nothing too crazy or too wild which would not be tried. Nicole was amazing, spoke beautifully and carried the night with such grace. We took fantastic pictures outside before the party but she was just too anxious to see her friends so we cut it short, but who would’ve thought halfway through the evening, the fire alarm went off and we were all outside again. Hasn’t happened to me before but it made for a wonderful opportunity for Bounce Entertainment to bring out their two drummers and entertain the crowd as the sun set. Stunning! Fire alarm over, it was back inside to finish off the night in style.  This is such a warm South African family, (being South African myself, I feel I’m an authority and my opinion is valid), and these guys really hit a home run.  An wonderful party for an amazing young woman.   Selected Photos HERE All Photos HERE

    Sarah & Abby B’not Mitzvah: June 24, 2017 These twin sisters were such a delight, they totally made my week and my weekend. Along with the younger brother Jack, who is totally adorable, we had a great time at the Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens.  An outdoor photo-shoot for the family, then into the Habonim Synagogue for some Torah pictures, and finally wrapped it up on Saturday night for a party room gathering extraordinaire; this wasn’t just any condo party room, this place was amazing. The girls were great, I had a fun time behind the camera while they had an equally good time out front. Laughing, smiling, and giggling was definitely the order of the day.   Selected Photos HERE All Photos HERE

    Jack’s Bar Mitzvah: June 25, 2017 I met Jack and his family for a wonderful rehearsal and ceremony/lunch at Beth Tzedec Synagogue on Bathurst. So much fun, this is a lovely bunch. We met many months ago to discuss the events and things turned out fabulously.    Jack and his sister Kayla are delightful; joking, playing and generally carrying on like a pair of best friends. Jack is pretty smooth and dare I say tall for a 13-year-old… I’ve never met anyone with size 16 shoes.  I love photographing in the synagogue, it is so bright and offers so much in the way of interesting angles and perspectives. Love the silhouettes here that present themselves waiting to be captured. This was no exception and it did not disappoint. As usual, Beth Tzedec offers up a delicious brunch and the DJ on site, Phoenix, was remarkably good. Thanks guys, I hope you love the photos as I do.   All photos are pass-protected Selected Photos HERE All Photos HERE

    Ayla’s Bat Mitzvah: June 18, 2017 This is one laid-back South African family that I was very happy to photograph (being South African myself) at The Warehouse a few weeks back. Very chilled and not at all flustered, these beautiful sisters, and there are four of them, stole the show. Bat mitzvah girl was dashing and elegant in her evening dress. It was so nice to hear the speeches that show the importance of family and everyone getting along so well together. I’m sure this is one fun Friday night around the dinner table. Magen Boys once again, raised the roof, with a special appearance of the Chief Magen himself, and these kids did party well into the night.  Loved the drummer, very cool… and the limbo was the lowest I’ve ever seen at a party, and I’ve seen quite a few.  Thanks for the great night.   All Photos HERE Selected Photos HERE   •Audio-Visual: Magen Boys •Clothing (Mitzvah): K.
