Stephanie’s Bat Mitzvah | Northern Virginia


Stephanie Michelle Friedman celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on June 10, 2017. We were delighted to travel to Northern Virginia for the festivities. The day began with services at Congregation Beth Emeth in Herndon, Virginia.  The service was absolutely beautiful and Stephanie did a wonderful job. Her family and friends couldn’t have been more proud of the hard work she put into preparing for this service.  You could see the admiration in her parent’s eyes throughout the entire day. It takes a lot of preparation for this special day and Stephanie definitely shined. Guests enjoyed a luncheon following the services.

Later that day everyone was invited to a grand celebration at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia. This party was filled with so many details to keep the kids and adults entertained all night long. So much fun was had by all.

Friends and family enjoyed a delicious meal followed by lots of fun, games, and dancing. Everyone was on the dance floor having a great time. There were glow sticks, sunglasses, a green screen and a lit up dance area. After dinner, there was cake, an ice cream sundae bar, and a candy bar to keep the energy going all night long. You may also notice in the pictures below, that there was lots of celebrating to do. There was also a special cake for a 75th Birthday and a 60th Wedding Anniversary.

This was such a special event for the Friedman Family and we are already looking forward to Stephanie’s brother’s Bar Mitzvah in 2019!

Westin, Richmond, VA Bar Mitvah: Parker’s Bar Mitzvah was held at the Westin on November 12, 2016 with the service at Temple Beth-El. Coordinated by Naomi Meyer, this weekend was the perfect combination of fun and tradition.

Friday evening The Morgan Family hosted services at Temple Beth-El. Followed by an intimate Dinner at the Westin. We are so happy that they had us capture this evening as well, because it was full of memories that they will treasure forever.  The first set of images below show Parker, his brother Carter and his parents Jennifer and Dennis at the temple. Followed by pictures from the dinner at the Westin.

The second set of images show the Rock and Roll  themed celebration that took place on Saturday afternoon following the Bar Mitzvah. The Morgans hired a fabulous DJ from Maryland that had the kids and adults on the dance floor all afternoon long! First, the kids arrived by trolley. Then they entered the ballroom that had been prepared for a great time! There was lighting, candy centerpieces, delicious food and fun desserts. There was even a funnel cake surprise for Parker.

We could not have had more fun photographing Parker’s special day. The dancing was nonstop and we can’t be positive but Jennifer, Dennis and Carter may have danced more than Parker.

Morgan Family Beach Portrait Session


In celebration of our first weekend at the beach, we are sharing the Morgan Family’s Beach Session on the blog today! We are headed to Virginia Beach this weekend to kick off our summer beach portrait sessions. We will be there Friday through Tuesday and it is not too late to schedule your session.

The beach session in this post is of the Morgan Family. We really got to know The Morgans when we photographed their oldest son Parker’s Bar Mitzvah in 2016.  We enjoyed our time with them during that special event, so we were excited to photograph this beach session.

Jennifer’s parents, Miriam and Arnold live in Oceans Condo in Virginia Beach. This condo has a retro beach club feel and Jamie really enjoyed capturing these special images. The entire family was part of this session. Parker and Carter have an awesome relationship for sibling boys at this age.  They truly enjoy spending time with each other and that is very special to watch. Jennifer’s brother Ricky and his son, Max, also joined us. We really enjoyed seeing the relationship between these three cousins, despite the 15-year age gap. This was a very special family with a tight bond.

Miriam and Arnold have quite the collection of paintings and photographs in their condo. So, Jamie really wanted to create a new painting that they would be able to enjoy, but also looks like it fits right in. Jamie also learned a lot about their family and history. It was very interesting to learn that Miriam’s family used to own a prominent butcher shop, Meyer Meats, in Richmond back in the day. It is always so much fun learning about our client’s history. That is how they truly become part of the Hayes & Fisk Family.

We hope you enjoy this session below, and email Mary today to schedule your beach session this summer!
