What can I say about Barry’s Bootcamp?? I am not a fan; I’m obsessed. I’ll admit, I was a late joiner to Barry’s Bootcamp. I took my first class in 2023 and never looked back. Which is why I was SO excited to photograph Barry’s Bootcamp Venice location’s 6th anniversary!
Barry’s Bootcamp was born in the West Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1998. However, it took until 2017 for the brand to expand to the nearby neighborhood of Venice Beach! The Venice location is amazing. It’s spacious, clean, and has some of the nicest staff!
In celebration of the Venice location turning 6, the studio went all out. Classes featured a live DJ and the energy was incredible! Barry’s is known for its amazing instructors and playlists that make each class energetic and fun (even when you feel like you’re dying) but having a live DJ in class was next level. The studio also catered Sweetgreens lunches for participants. Later on, Nocco sponsored the event and energy drink shots were passed around halfway through class as a fun surprise for participants! After class, everyone enjoyed lunch, Nocco beverages, and of course, Fuel Bar smoothies!
Finally, the most exciting part of the event: Barry’s Bootcamp Venice hosted complimentary B-12 shots from Modwella! B-12 supplements assist in recovery and energy. There was a registered nurse on site giving free B-12 injections and people lined up to receive them! Venice is known for many things, including having a high population of health freaks, and it was so much fun moving our bodies together and celebrating an incredible studio. It’s so fun getting to build community while doing something nice for your body.

This epic La Cañada Flintridge Country Club bar mitzvah was so much fun to photograph! I honestly don’t know who had more fun, me or the guests. There’s just something about photographing mitzvah-age kids that I get a huge kick out of! Jacob’s family hosted his mitzvah at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club, a stunning event venue overlooking Los Angeles.
Jacob’s bar mitzvah started with a family portraits before the formal ceremony. It was so sweet getting to see all of Jacob’s close family members, family friends, and school friends come together to celebrate with him! Jacob comes from a really sweet, connected family.
Afterwards, the ceremony began. Jacob read from the torah and gave his thoughts and interpretations on scriptures that stook out to him. In a surprise twist, the ceremony concluded with guests throwing candy at him! I think the kids took it a little bit more intensely than was planned, and Jacob and his father ducked for cover as they were lovingly pelted with candy. I literally could not stop laughing.
The epic ceremony lead into an epic reception, with a MC, photo booth, and tons of fun activities and games! One of the games was musical chairs and let me tell you: never have I ever seen a more competitive game played! The party ended with dancing and a sweet and emotional candle lighting. Many guests were drawn to tears. There was so much love in this family and everyone had a wonderful time! Including me!
