AMY'S BAT MITZVAH :: B'nai Tzedek + The Bolger Center

As a photographer I find comfort in knowing what I'm getting into ~ I like shooting places I've been to before because I know where the light is and where the good spots are.  That being said, it was such a nice change of pace to photograph the Becker family at B'nai Tzedek in Potomac.  It was an awesome temple ~ lots of natural light and a beautiful bimah; it was like shooting ducks in a barrel (and add to it the fact that the bat mitzvah girl, Amy, was a natural in front of the camera) Amy had a kids' party  on Sunday at the Bolger Center.  I've been to the Bolger Center for a wedding before but this was my first time shooting there and it was really cool.  The stained glass windows let in natural light but they also add a beautiful background to the photos.  Amy had a candy theme and my favorite part was the popcorn and pretzel station ~ I've never seen that at an event before and I may have to steal the idea for my own daughter's bat mitzvah!

Thank you Julie, Steve, Jeffrey and Amy ~ enjoy this preview of images to come!
