This is my first blog post of the new year – which was the final event of last year. I am so excited to share this one – what a way to kick things off! Jared’s Bar Mitzvah was a dream come true for every Yankees fan (this photographer included)!
A few weeks before the event, we met Jared at Yankees Stadium to document him becoming a Yankee for a day.
Dressed in his pinstripes and toting a Louisville Slugger, Jared threw pitches in the bullpen, chilled in the dugout and caught flyballs from his Dad in the outfield. We photographed it all to be shown on the giant jumbotron at Yankees Stadium for the night of the party.
Little did we know that there was going to be a massive blizzard to hit NYC, but we made winter visual magic by using the snow to our advantage and made some iconic images. Check out these incredible moments for this super amazing family – and be sure to note what could be the very first Horah “selfie” ever!
