This young man will be celebrating his Bar Mitzvah this Shabbat. He’d seen another sporty pre-shoot I’d done, but since I’d just done it, wanted to come up with something different. Through some discussion, I determined that his main sport is basketball, and I got to work researching courts. My original idea was for a court in a cool urban area, but I wasn’t able to come up with one. I also looked near the beach, but didn’t find one where I was looking in Google maps. Mom asked again about the beach, and I Googled it right before giving up. I’m so glad I persevered, because at it turns out, there IS a basketball court right by the beach, and we met there on a gorgeous night, and turned out these amazing images! I can’t wait to capture the main event this weekend!
