What do you do when one of your favourite families asks you to fly to one of your favourite cities in the world and document one of the most important events of their lives?
;-) Yeah, not too hard to figure out the answer. ;-)
Seeing the little girl I met and photographed for the first time when she was around five turning twelve and becoming a woman in God’s eyes, was really emotional. I had to fight my tears when I saw her stand bravely and say her perfect words in front of family & friends. Hadley and her brothers are as old as my own, and it really felt like I was documenting family.
I had never being to a Bat Mitzvah before so every single thing I saw, I just HAD to photograph. Monica Pernal (www.victoriadubin.com) and her staff did a wonderful job organizing the event and decorating the party in the West Village area. It was really an amazing event and it was a joy seeing Hadley walk around as the happiest girl in the world in this such special day!
