JESSICA'S BAT MITZVAH :: 4935 BAR AND KITCHEN, Bethesda, MD

This was my second bat mitzvah for the Chelst family. I photographed Ally's bat mitzvah 3 years ago and I remembered Jessica as a little kid.  I was completely surprised when I saw her for her portrait session and realized she had totally grown up.  It really amazes me how much girls change in just a couple of years; Jessica was no longer the little sister tagging along at her older sister's party ~ she was the center of attention and loved every minute of it! Here she is back in 2010 with her older sister and just last weekend at her own bat mitzvah: chelst sisters

This was also my second time shooting at 4935 Bar and Kitchen in Bethesda and it is such a great space for a party.  There is plenty of room for dancing and also a long bar and plenty of room for the adults to sit back and watch if they aren't into dancing.

Thank you, Kathy, Michael, Ally and Jessica for allowing me to be part of the big day!
