I love the pre bat mitzvah portrait session. These sessions create the most relaxed portraits. Often at the bat mitzvah there is no time for an in-depth session. For her upcoming Bat Mitzvah, we made a series of outdoor portraits at the request of her mom. I have posted two pictures: I chose my favorite and Cara chose hers. Cara’s mom wanted to hang a matted print in her home. When she was little, Cara was photgraphed by the pond in the front of their home in Westchester. So we made a redux.
