Meet Tyler.

He has a very special event coming up at the end of September—his Bar Mitzvah! So as my gift to his family for the honor of capturing his big day for him, we held a Bar Mitzvah Mini-Session at Glen Echo Park. His family will be using the images from this session as part of the slideshow they will be showing during the after party.

I know this is not the most traditional pose but it triggered the thought of Tyler looking ahead to a new chapter in his growing years: Slightly nervous but definitely looking forward to new experiences!

As Mom, Tyler, and I were hanging out during our session, I asked him if I could interview him for his blog post. He happily agreed—and here’s what he had to say:

What are you most looking forward to on the day of your Bar Mitvah? The party! I am so looking forward to having fun with my friends and family.

Why is this day important to you? It’s the pay off for all that I’ve learned in Hebrew school.

Is there anything that you’re nervous about during the service? I’m scared of the service, that I’m going to forget everything…but I think that I’ll be okay because I get to look forward to the party afterwards.

What advice do you have for other kids who are preparing for their Bar (or Bat) Mitzvah? Study the whole time and don’t rush it in the end…like me! Make sure you know what you’re going to do!

Who has been most influential to you during the entire time of getting ready for your Bar Mitzvah? My parents have been such a great help to me this entire time.

Yes, you best believe Mom got a little teary during our time together!

Thank you Tyler, you were great as always. And I’m definitely looking forward to partying with you soon! 🙂
