Emma is the third Lieberman B’nai Mitzvah I have photographed over the past decade and I cannot get over how beautiful and bright and talented she has become. I was practically in tears as she chanted her Torah portion on the day of her portrait session. I mean, Emma was just a peanut when I first met her at her brother Andrew’s Bar Mitzvah and now, before me, stood this lovely 13-year-old girl who appeared ready to take on the world!
Of course, she is still the “baby sister” to her big brothers and I loved watching the three kids–and her parents– all goof around and laugh together. Mitch and Bethany definitely both know how to play and have fun, and the “apples”, as they say, don’t fall far from the tree!
Check out the socks on the guys…
I loved all of the little details, and especially the desert table, which included cake pops and mini cupcakes, cotton candy, single serving bottles of milk (with straws!) and a never-ending supply of color coordinated and specially monogrammed m&m’s. YUM!
And what’s a party without a photo booth? So, Green Mountain PhotoBooth was set up to capture the fun! The props, I should add, were supplied by Bethany and it was the best variety of novelty props I’ve ever seen!
There were many special moments throughout the night, but certainly one of the highlights was the dancing of the HORA and lifting the Bat Mitzvah up in a chair while family and friends cheered her on.
DJ Mike from Supersounds kept the party fun and festive all night with great music, limbo and favorite games like “Coke-Pepsi” and Musical Chairs…
Below is a slideshow of 100 images that recaps Emma’s Bat Mitzvah day, with a fun musical mashup of Cat Stevens and Avril Lavigne to accompany the pictures. The show is in FLASH, so if you’re reading this blog post on an iPad or iPhone, you’ll need to switch over to a laptop to view the slideshow (sorry, but blame Steve Jobs and APPLE!)
