Services & Pricing: Bar / Bat Mitzvahs

An investment in a high-quality professional photography is like an insurance policy on your memories. The photographer you select should create images that will show not just what your bar or bat mitzvah looked like, but remind you of what it felt like to be there. Even years from now when memories fade. With Natural Portraits & Events, we want you to “Relive the Moment!”

Photography with spirit is more than our tagline. It's what you will receive and cherish.
