Joey’s Bar Mitzvah ~ Congregation Sinai

Joey’s day started out with some great family pictures and a little bit of practice before the ceremony. Joey did an amazing job! Normally I am not able to capture this portion of the day but I was granted permission and I am so happy to have been able to document this for the family. I came back later that evening for his fabulous party! Check out the story of the day here:
