If you’ve been following Sonju Photography for a while, you know about the huge crush I have on Ari Cohen. I’ve been photographing Ari and his family for a few years now, so when his mom Leah asked if I’d shoot his Bar Mitzvah (like she had a choice, haha!) I was stoked. Watching his best friend Kemsley, his classmates at AAC, friends, family, and even the Lynn University Baseball team celebrate Ari was a highlight of my career as a photographer. Just wait till you see the JOY on their faces at the party! Here are a few of my favorites from Ari’s special day.
