Wow, what an incredible day for this lovely young lady! A huge congratulations to Evie on her flawless ceremony and fun filled bat mitzvah party!
Never have I seen such energetic, excited, happy young people. These girls hit the dance floor at 7 and were still going strong hours later. Dancing, playing games, running and giggling! It was a party the way parties are meant to be. I think the parents may have even enjoyed themselves!
It's clear from her presentations how much Evie's friends adore her, and from spending a few days with her I can see why. She's a poised, friendly, happy and polite young lady. It was touching to see how proud and happy her friends are for her. Not to mention the adoration in her brother's eyes! At her rehearsal, he said to me "Wow, that's my sister up there..."
Ballet is central to her life, her party featured a ballet theme throughout, and most of my favorite photos include her twirling, sparkling dress and posing in her pointe shoes.
I was also able to photograph her rehearsal where she had the privilege of reading from the real torah. The poise with which she read and delivered her speech was nothing short of perfection. Her mother will forgive me for mentioning I caught her with tears in her eyes. It was impossible not to be moved.
Thank you to Evie and her family for trusting me with their momentous day!
