Beth Sholom Congregation: Renee’s Bat Mitzvah
I’m so excited to finally be blogging Renee’s Bat Mitzvah Celebration! I met Renee and the rest of her awesome family last year, when I photographed her brother Casey’s Bar Mitzvah Portraits. I had so much fun last year with Casey so I was just thrilled when they asked me come and work with them again this year!
Renee is just stunningly beautiful and so sweet to work with! We started on Friday at Beth Sholom Congregation in Potomac, Maryland for her portraits at the Synagogue.
After capturing some beautiful portraits at the Synagog, we headed to Renee’s house to photograph her with her family and friends. Before everyone arrived, I managed to get Renee alone for some portraits of her in her amazing dress!
Renee had two beautiful dresses for her big day!
I love these of Renee with her parents and siblings!
While I was photographing some formals of the adults, the kids were having a blast in the yard!
After hanging out with everyone on Friday, I went home and geared up for the big celebration on Saturday night. Renee had a “Magical” night at the Potomac Community Center. This wasn’t your typical party… While the adults played cards in one room, the kids had a blast with the inflatable basket ball bounce and the mechanical shark!
The highlight of the evening was clearly Tim Hall from Aladdin Productions. He put on an amazing show for everyone!
Tim managed to get Renee’s dad up for some fun!
And here it is… the mechanical shark! This was such a hit!!
Renee and her friends had a ton of fun with the green screen!
Casey had some card tricks of his own!! And check out these super cool bags Renee gave out as favors…
Everyone had a “Wonderfuller” time at Renee’s Bat Mitzvah Celebration! Mazel tov, Renee!!!
