This matching pair of bar mitzvah albums is covered in fabric instead of the customary leather. As an very experienced bar mitzvah photographer, I’ve been making custom albums for my clients for 2 decades. The factory that produces my books is over 100 years old. They are one of the original companies to make leather bound wedding and bar mitzvah albums in New York. Nowadays cover options have been expanded beyond leather to include vegetarian options such as fabric [shown here], linen and Japanese book cloth.
When I got the original call to find out my price and availability, this sweet mother called to inquire about “just a few nice portraits of my son and us to be taken at a nearby Synagogue to mark the occasion” of her son becoming Bar Mitzvah. I never expected to be producing bar mitzvah portrait albums from our session. #beinpictures with your children, for your children. They want to see where they belong.
Shown here: two custom 7 by 5 inch portrait albums: one for the parents and one for their son. Silver pebble has become the most requested album cover fabric. It is presented with contrasting copper imprinting, alongside a copper pebble album with silver imprinting.
