We recently had the privilege of photographing Sam’s Bar Mitzvah! Several years ago we were able to photograph Sarah’s Bat Mitzvah and you can see a slideshow of her Bat Mitzvah album here. A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is Jewish celebration of a child’s turning 13 which is when they become responsible for their actions. You can find out more information about the ceremony and celebration here on the Wikipedia page.
We arrived at Sam’s celebration after the ceremony and were there to capture his party! Sam’s family and friends were there to help them celebrate, and boy did they have fun.
Angela Proffitt was the coordinator for the Bar Mitzvah, and the Noah Liff Opera Center was the perfect backdrop. Nashville Event Lighting made it perfect! Part of the center was sectioned off for the adults to have a laid-back, quite, evening, while the main area was decked out for the kids to celebrate.
Contagious Entertainment came from Atlanta to help the kids get on the dance floor and have a blast. Since Sam plays basketball, the theme was suited just for him. It’s surprising to find that Middle school dances haven’t changed that much since I was his age
I love the image of all the shoes lined up…. it about sums up the night!
