I first met this fun family when their girls were much smaller (in stature, not in personality!) a few years ago for a family session. I felt a connection to them right away when I realized we each have three wonderful (semi-crazy) daughters. I know how important bat mitzvahs are not just for the parents, but also for the bat mitzvah girls themselves. I was so excited when they booked me to photograph this milestone for Leora. The dark, stormy skies over North Brunswick, NJ had nothing on the love, light, and happiness that filled Congregation B’nai Tikvah that day! Leora is so much fun I don’t think anything could rain on her parade.
A Bat Mitzvah Celebration to Remember
Everything about the party was classy and so well done. The centerpieces were beautiful, the in-house caterer included so many special details (like palate cleansers in between courses, an amazing ice sculpture for serving alcohol shots, amazing pint-sized drinks, and popcorn that was passed around during the montage—brilliant!). All of the food was DELICIOUS! (and I’m basically a professional bat mitzvah food taste-tester, so trust me on this one). I haven’t seen catering service close to this one, just perfect.
This family knows how to PARTAY!!!! After five hours we were STILL DANCING! I was amazed that Leora’s little sisters Miri and Kayla could keep up with Leora’s friends—they could Floss, Harlem Shake, Cotton-Eyed Joe and Dougie with the best of them. It must run in the family because Mom and Dad have some serious dance moves, too! I loved that not only did Leora’s friends dance the night away, but their friends and family did as well. All of those who love this crew surrounded them with love and laughter (and some really..um..interesting dance moves). I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate such a special girl.
After five hours of partying my feet hurt and my camera needed a nap, but I had the biggest smile on my face. Ginsberg crew—you are the ultimate party animals, and I cannot wait until the next one! Thanks for letting me celebrate with you!
