Abbey’s Bat Mitzvah

I recently had the privilege of photographing Abbey’s Bat Mitzvah. It was a real pleasure, because Abbey is one of the most delightful young women I’ve photographed.
The following images are from Abbey’s Bat Mitvah party which was held at Nyack seaport, NY.  At the end of the day, Abbey and her mom, Susan, spent a quiet time together on the bank of the Hudson River. Mazel Tov, Abbey!
