Our very first paid event was at a Bat Mitzvah 11 years ago next month. I can’t tell you how AMAZING it feels to have guests react with the same thrill as they did 11 years ago when they flip through the pages of their own flipbook for the first time. It seriously gives me butterflies in the pit of my stomach, I’m so happy that they are happy! From that moment in 2006, PicFlips Flipbooks was the darling of the Bar and Bat Mitzvah World in DFW. As typical in the mitzvah sphere, entertainment goes in cycles. Many of our previous guests of honor have graduated from college and some are married now. Requests are rolling in for flipbooks at DFW Bar and Bat Mitzvahs once again because this next flow of guests have never seen PicFlips at a party.
So when I received the gallery of photos from Gianna’s Bat Mitzvah….I was BLOWN AWAY! There is something so magical and electric about mitzvahs, and Maggie Hargrave of MaggShots Photography captured everything so beautifully! Maggie and I grew up together at church. She worked for us at PicFlips Flipbooks while going to college, and then pursued her dream of owning a photography business full-time. Maggie is constantly attending conferences, traveling, networking and perfecting her photography skills….and it shows! Gah, her photos are amazing!! It helps when the family she is photographing is gorgeous, which was certainly the case with the Razack family. A beautiful celebration for an incredible milestone. Mazel Tov, Gianna!
The pictures here were taken at the party at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Feel free to check out more pictures from the whole celebration here…http://www.maggshots.com/gianna-bat-mitzvah/ Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots with us, Maggie!
