Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah – Bergen County NJ
Bat Mitzvah’s are always incredibly fun to photograph. Jordyn’s was simply wonderful. Jordyn is the beautiful daughter of a beautiful soul, one handsome dude, and the sister of two awesome brothers. With her mother being a photographer, I knew Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah would be amazing, I just didn’t know how amazing. Space, in Bergen County, NJ was completely decked out in amazing decor. Sugar Skulls, candy bars, crystals, candelabras, a pancake and waffle station, cotton candy, ice cream, glitter covered doughnuts, an aerial performer, bowling, video games, a fog machine, a confetti gun, snow even fell from the ceiling. It truly was a magical day celebrating Jordyn and her friends and family all had an amazing time.
I won’t lie, when Jordyn danced with her father I had tears welling up in my eyes. The way her father looked at her – I just hope she never doubts that she is loved because she is so very loved, you can see it on the face of every person who looked at her all day long.
I love everything about Jordyn and her family and couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day or more wonderful people to spend it with.
Welcome to being a teenager, one of the toughest times in life, yet one of the most incredibly fun times too. You’ll have days where you feel like the world is in your hands, and it is. You’ll have days where you feel like the world is against you. When you do – look at these photos, see how loved you are – because you are so loved. I’ve seen 1,000 people dance with their father but I’ve never seen a father so proud or beaming with SO much love. You have a wonderful Daddy and an incredible mother to guide you through your journey to adulthood. You have two brothers who look at you like you are the center of their world, they so look up to you. You have incredible friends who said the most wonderful and amazing things about you. You are blessed beyond measure and they are blessed to have such a strong, beautiful, and amazing daughter. The world is yours, beautiful girl, and I’m so happy I got to spend this day with you and all the people who love you!
