I met Sammy when he was 8, 9 or 10, oh, I can’t remember exactly. But I remember he was full of energy and driving his mother crazy. You see it was his brother’s bar mitzvah day and Sammy was having nothing to do with family pictures. In fact I believe his exact words were “NO, NO, NO”. And he meant it. After letting Sammy take a few pics with my “big fancy camera”, he warmed up to me and actually let me make some images of him with the family. He was cutting up and just making me laugh. He simply kept me entertained the whole night. Every time I’d see him after that, I would say to myself…”I love that kid”! So you can imagine how happy I was when his mother ask me to photograph his bar mitzvah, and even happier to have his mom call me for his senior portraits too. And yep, I’m holding out for his wedding (though he need not be in a rush!).
Here are a few pics from Sammy’s Senior session.
