How To Have A Great Pre Bar/Bat Mitzvah Photo Session

Many Bar/Bat Mitzvah kids look forward to their own photo shoot. It’s a way to have their personality shine and can add to your Bar/Bat Mitzvah decor.

Once your date is booked, it’s time to start thinking about what your child is going to wear and the look you are trying to achieve.

We turned to photography expert Laura Mastorides from Hi-Tech Photography Events to get some pointers and tips about how to make the most of these private Bar/Bat Mitzvah photo sessions. Here’s what we learned:

MM: Any pointers for the casual family shoot?
LM:
If you are going to go to the beach or park, make sure to schedule at the right time of day, preferably sunset to avoid squinting. Uniform colors for the family looks great, whether it’s khaki and white or denim and purple…whatever works for your family!

MM: What are some accessories that work well with these type of photo shoots?
LM:
If your child is into sports, bring along their favorite ball which will add an element of fun to the shoot.
