Woodland Hills Country Club Bat Mitzvah

When I started photographing Bar and Bat Mitzvahs about 5 years ago – I had no idea I would enjoy photographing these events as much as I do… There’s something about being thirteen that I can connect to – based on my Tivo list one might suspect there’s a 13 year old in my house – one of the things that I love about shooting Bar Mitzvahs – are the communities I get to know – I see the same kids and moms throughout the years, and when I go to shoot a Bar Mitzvah party _ sometimes know more people there than at events I am actually invited to! So Caitlyn’s mom booked me a year in advance after meeting me at numerous events since my beginnings, and I got to see Caitlyn blossom into the beautiful girl that she is  – I am so proud of her – and I’m not even her mom – but working with her for three sessions – and her being fun, cooperative and up for anything legal – I got to know an awesome thirteen year old girl whose favorite show The Walking Dead I now have to add to my list!

Liesl Diesel - First, I cannot believe that girl is 13! She is so beautiful and grown up! These look like senior photos! I feel like I shouldn’t write that because the parents are probably reading this and feel the same way. She is just absolutely gorgeous. Great job catching all the portraits and emotions of such an incredibly important day!
