SIRK BAR MITZVAH v2 | TEMPLE ISAIAH, HOWARD COUNTY

sirkB-001-6.jpg

Last Saturday I shot my second bar mitzvah for the Sirk family; I shot older brother Emerson's bar mitzvah two years ago and got to do Weston's this past weekend.  I hadn't seen Weston in quite a while and remembered him mostly from the photos on my computer from Emerson's bar mitzvah.  I continue to be amazed at how quickly kids change at this age.  Weston went from being the short, baby brother to being a towering hulk of a 13-year-old.  It was only fitting that the theme of his bar mitzvah was 'Party With the Beast'! The best part about doing a second bar/bat mitzvah for a family is that there is already a comfort level ~ we aren't feeling each other out; me, trying to see how comfortable they are with certain locations and poses and them trying to figure out if I'm going to make them look good or not.  It was easy and fun and I'm only sad they don't have any more kids having a bar or bat mtizvah.

Thanks, Sirk family - enjoy this preview of images to come!
