The Barmitzvah and Batmitzvah - that incredible time in a young Jewish life, where the transformation occurs from childhood to adulthood.
For a young man, it is the journey from boyhood to manhood with huge religious and social significance.
For a young woman, it is a time where she acquires greater maturity in her connection to her own Jewish identity.
Capturing such a life event in photographs requires a special touch and to a great extent, a special knowledge.
An esoteric understanding of the whole experience.
As a Barmitzvah photographer, I am continually reminded of that incredible day
and every simchah I photograph fills me with that very same emotion.
