Best Chicago Bar Mitzvah Photographs

According to Jewish law, when Jewish boys become 13 years old, they become accountable for their actions and become a bar mitzvah.  When xxx turned 13, his family celebrated this milestone with a feast at his home in Skokie, IL, a village just north of Chicago.
HIs extended family is traveling to attend this special occasion and I was contacted to photograph this extended family reunion. It was a super rainy day and it had been raining for a few hours when I arrived.  All the roads surrounding their home were flooded.  With very limited space to work with and a large group of people, I had to move a few furniture pieces and take out the light I had brought with me on the job and gathered everyone with my wide angle lens.  I am happy that I came prepared and got the job done.  By the end of the session, I wanted to create a memorable piece of portrait for the family to remember the occasion.  I directed xxx to pose next to the bookcase and, using off-camera flash, created this image that will be treasured for generations to come.
