Friends often ask me if I prefer to be a photographer or a guest at their big event…that they want me to have fun and enjoy myself. The truth is that I am lucky to love what I do and photographing a special event like a Bar Mitzvah is a true honor to be able to tell the story…especially for good friends!

As my son’s best friend, I have watched Owen grow up from a little boy into a bright young man over the last eight years or so. From school to sports to playing around, Owen was always hanging around with my son Max. It was so special to be such a big part of his Bar Mitzvah day as their photographer.

Owen led the morning service and chanted Torah as he became a Bar Mitzvah – son of the commandments. He did a beautiful job and made his family so proud. Much deserving of a major celebration, Owen brought down the house – his house – as he and his family partied all day long! The Dadeland Marriot set the scene for a sportacular celebration! With help from Shanna Lammie, Owen’s mom turned the roon into a fun space that any sports fan would love! MC Marcelo of Pure Energy kept the beats going for hours and hours. It was a wonderful day and Janine Stone Photography was truly honored to capture these moments that I know the Katsikas family will never forget.

With Owen’s Bar Mitzvah right around the corner, it was the perfect time to get together with the Katsikas family to capture some special moments. I knew that they had not had a professional photo shoot in quite a long time, so I was really excited to create these beautiful images for mom all while keeping it fun and easy for the boys.

Leo absolutely rocked his Bar Mitzvah! He led a beautiful service at Temple Judea in Coral Gables that signified his becoming a man in Judaism. He shined as he chanted from the Torah in front of his friends and family.

An outstanding Bar Mitzvah, calls for a celebration to match. It was on to The Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne for a fabulous party to commemorate the big event. Leo shined as he let loose on the dance floor and partied all night. The ballroom was perfectly decorated and coordinated by the talented designs of Kitanim to match the beautiful Miami City skyline views. Pure Energy‘s MC Eric and his team kept the party going all night long!

After working with this family for so many years, photographing each newborn baby and capturing their growing family, it was so exciting to photograph their third little bundle of joy. Little Devon was a perfect angel for our shoot and such a sweetie, just like his brother and sister! With three babies under 3 years old, mom and dad surely have their hand full, but it was such a joy to capture the love that fills their gorgeous new home! Thank you, once again, for giving me the honor to capture your loving family!

Mom seems to think that Leo is a pretty calm kid – and he is! But put him in front of the camera, and there is a whole goofy wild side just waiting to be caught on film…

And this brood of boys sure keeps mom on her toes! She may look small, but she is mighty enough to handle this crazy crew! Before Leo’s upcoming Bar Mitzvah, we met at Matheson Hammock Park to get to know the family and capture some timeless moments. What a great time it was, running around and being silly together!

Thank you, Gershman family, for spending the day with me!
