Mazel Tov Daniel! {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer} Firefly Universe Fine Portrait Photography

November 30, 2012 · Events

Mazel tov to Daniel and his family!!  I had never shot a Bar Mitzvah at Central Reform Congregation, so it was extra special to be there to capture these moments.  The first few images were taken on Daniel’s rehearsal day.

And here’s the big day!

I don’t know what the energy felt like at CRC because I can’t be completely in the moment when I’m constantly looking through my camera lens, but it’s obvious in the images that this synagogue is filled with joy during a Bar Mitzvah.

Daniel was surrounded and supported by so many loved ones as he prepared to read the ancient words of Torah!

After all that hard work, Daniel deserved a fun-filled birthday celebration!

This is Daniel’s big brother working his best dance moves…

Meet my 2nd shooter…

Daniel, I loved your teaching on the Torah portion, and really enjoy your enthusiasm and uniqueness!!
