Feirstein Bat Mitzvah, Mazel Tov! {Charlotte Bat Mitzvah Photography}

You might remember the Feirsteins from a couple of months ago. I met them in Charlotte at UNCC for a family session and we tromped around the gardens, laughed…I put them in awkward poses (lemme tell ya HOW much pre-teens love when I pose them with their siblings haha) but we got some great imagery that day and I was more than ready to come to Temple Beth El in Charlotte to document Shelby’s big day.

I must admit, I have not only never shot a Bat Mitzvah before but have also never been to temple. I was not entirely sure what to expect. I was quite surprised really. The service itself was quite lively, incorporating family in several aspects (I’m a sucker for family stuff), a fair amount of movement…it was quite impressive. The party, later that evening at Carmel Country Club was super fun for the kids AND the adults!
