Rebecca's Bat Mitzvah

Last weekend I returned to Westchester for Rebecca's Bat Mitzvah. Rich and I have become regulars at Temple Israel in New Rochelle. I drove down to the NYC area a few days early to do an engagement session in Brooklyn and do casual photos of Rebecca and her family the day before her Bat Mitzvah. We did photos at her house and then went down to The Surf Club on Long Island Sound. The venue was still preparing the beachfront for the next day, so we went over to Manor Park in Larchmont. I've been there a few times but I'm always following someone there so I'd never be able to find it on my own. I used to look at maps all the time to find my way. I would take a mental snap shot of the lay of the land and would be able to navigate wherever I needed to go. Now with GPS units and following other drivers, I don't have that same birds eye view in my mind. 

 On Saturday, we photographed Rebecca at the Temple and then headed over to The Surf Club. Pulling in to the club felt like arriving at Caesar's in Las Vegas with a brick lined driveway wrap around a massive fountain. The venue was gorgeous. The party was great, as was another event I get to shoot with my brother. We have so much fun shooting together.
