My first non-wedding assignment 4

Today I shooted my first non-wedding assignment. Normally, I don’t do any non-wedding event as I don’t feel the passion of it. I met Fiona back in Jan, and she ‘s planning to host a Barmitzvah (???) party for his 12-years old son (Robert). I learned that Barmitzvah party is a fun event to shoot and confirmed to be her photographer.

We shooted a portrait session for Robert today at the Peak, the photos will be used as the guestbook for the party. I had a great time with Fiona ‘s family, and Robert is such a handsome boy that it is so easy to take photos for him.

I am already looking forward to their Barmitzah party on 21 May, 2006.

    Like your style of photos, Robert is my nephew, Fiona is my sister, and we are travelling from the Uk to be with Robert on his special day. We are all very excited beacuse it will be a very special celebration. As you have said he is very handsome and hence easy to photo but you should also know he is also a very speical kind of boy and is gorgous from the inside out.

    We are Steven’s cousins, originally from Glasgow and now living in Vienna.  Seeing the pictures brings the forthcoming Barmitzvah even closer.  We are so looking forward to being with all the family on such a happy occasion.  Thanks for having the chance to see everyone just now.
