What a great time I had shooting this latest Bat Mitzvah. I've been friends with this family for quite some time now and they have welcomed me as their main photographer for many of their major events. I initially was given the chance to shoot their older daughter, Jenna's Bat Mitzvah, back in '13 and now I get to shoot her younger sister, Lexie's. The Bat Mitzvah ceremony was held at Temple Beth Ami, a reformed temple located here in Santa Clarita. Lexie was very well rehearsed! And the ceremony was filled with laughter and even a few tears...well more like many tears :)
It was a pleasure shooting the whole family after a few years pasted, and seeing how much everyone has grown!
The reception was held at The Paseo Club. It's primarily a members only tennis club, but has a lot of amenities, like a pool, banquet hall, and exercise classes. You don't, however, need to be a member to book a room, so The Paseo Club is a Santa Clarita favorite. I also got the opportunity to shoot with Graham Silver from Sliver Tones Entertainment. He's great and really knows how to keep the party going.
