JORDAN'S BAR MITZVAH :: BETHESDA

kochmanT-194.jpg

Got to spend some time with Jordan and his family in Bethesda this past weekend for his bar mitzvah.  I'm officially going on record that petulant, non-cooperative 13-year-old boys are the exception and not the rule.  Jordan was another one of these kids I hope my son turns out like ~ he was funny, charming, polite and spent most of his reception with his 6-year-old niece (he even partnered up with her for a spirited game of Coke and Pepsi which, for this reception, was not Coke and Pepsi but Flyers and some other hockey team as hockey was the theme of the evening). The reception was so much fun ~ I never know what a crowd is going to be like and the more people dance and participate, the better the photos usually are (who wants photos of people sitting around?).  This group was up and dancing for most of the night and it was the first time I can remember that I actually had trouble taking photos of the dance floor because there were so many people on it.  Not a bad problem to have :)

Rori, Rich, Jordan and Julia?  Thanks for trusting me with your big day!
