Jaden’s Bat Mitzvah

Jaden‘s Bat Mitzvah was last month and it was a beautiful celebration of faith and family.

The service was held at Ohavi Zedek Synagogue, where Jaden‘s friends and family members gathered to hear her chant from the Torah.

The day was years in the making, including class after class in religious and Hebrew study.

Finally, a big shout out to the folks at POCKETWIZARD! When I need to light up a dance floor and have multiple studio lights working, POCKETWIZARD is the radio remote I completely trust to do the job! The new plus IV lets me go back and forth seamlessly between my on-camera flash and my larger White Lightening and Alien Bees studio lights, turning on and off each light independently so that I always have the look that I need. It makes for a NO STRESS night-allowing me to make beautifully lit pictures throughout the celebration. POCKETWIZARD,I am your Number One FAN!
