Sam is one of our family friends so it was an absolute pleasure for me to photograph him on his bar mitzvah day. Sam is a boy who is full of energy and has a silly sense of humor but he was quite relaxed and serious on his bar mitzvah day. He was surrounded by his mom Cindy, his two brothers and his dad and three grandparents.
My son, Jacob, is good friends with Sam and was asked to sit on the bimah with Sam throughout the service. Of course, I loved seeing my son all dressed up sitting there with his pal, the star of the show. The moms of Congregation Beth El also participated in creating a beautiful kiddush lunch. I love the community and the willingness to support each other.
Mazel tov to Sam, Cindy and the rest of your family.
