A few weeks ago, I photographed Noah’s Bar Mitzvah in Brookline. This fabulous event was planned by the talented Nathalya Mamane
, and took place at Veronique Boston
. Noah and his family had recently returned from a trip to China and the whole party had a Chinese theme. It was beautifully done, and the party was so much fun! Here’s a look…

Noah’s grandparents. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a cute little old man!

I’m always so entertained by the games at Bar Mitzvahs! The light coming into the ballroom was just about perfect, and mix that with a bunch of girls hoola-hooping, and I was having a blast!
I wasn’t the only one fascinated by the hoola-hoops…
The Hora is one of my FAVORITE Jewish traditions! It makes me want to have a Jewish wedding someday. Though I doubt my Irish-Catholic family would quite know what to do… ;) Noah was loving it!
His Mom was a little scared at first
Dad was getting into it though
As was Noah’s little brother
Even his little sister had fun with it!
More games… Coke & Pepsi, anyone?
Fun on the dance floor
One of the things I love about Bar Mitzvahs is when the adults get in on the fun and let themselves be kids for a little bit
Noah’s birthday cake was AMAZING! One of the coolest cakes I’ve ever seen, for sure! (check out the detail collage at the top to see some more of the front of the cake)

All in all, I think Noah and his friends had an awesome time!
Congratulations Noah! Thanks so much for having me as part of your day!
