Bat mitzvahs are an important Jewish coming of age ritual that celebrates a young woman’s full transition into the Jewish community. This is such a momentous occasion which is why Myers reached out to J&J Studios. They wanted our team to document every moment of their daughter’s Sydney special day starting with beautiful portraits along the Camden Waterfront. This New Jersey Bat Mitzvah photography session went just as planned and we’re happy that we had the opportunity to capture quality visuals that Sydney will always cherish.
Camden Waterfront Family Portrait
During the consultation, the Myers made it clear that they wanted to take family portraits before the commencement of the Bat mitzvah ceremony. This was important because they hadn’t taken an updated family portrait in years and what better day to do so than on this special day.
They didn’t have a location in mind for this portrait session so our team suggested the Camden Waterfront in New Jersey. This was an ideal location because it was near the synagogue and the riverfront makes for great scenic pictures.
The Myers looked absolutely stunning for this afternoon shoot. Family portraits are one of our favorite sessions because there is nothing more heartwarming than capturing the genuine love of a family. During the family portrait session, we snapped photos of mom and dad, captured amazing self-portraits of the children.
New Jersey Bat Mitzvah Photography Session
This birthday marked a special year for Sydney Myers. In the Jewish community, a Bat Mitzvah occurred around a girl’s twelfth birthday. We documented every moment of the bat mitzvah ceremony at the synagogue. Due to Covid 19 restrictions, the ceremony had to be tremendously scaled back and only the family was allowed to attend. Everyone wore masks during the ceremony which was a requirement.
The ceremony started with Sydney reading from the Torah. The Rabbi offered a prayer and spoke to Sydney and her family. The ceremony was over rather quickly. The pure look of excitement and happiness in the faces of Sydney’s family was beautiful to see. They were eager to take several more photographs at the end of the ceremony. We also got some photos of the family with the Rabbi. Sydney will be able to look back on these photos and remember this very day.
