A Christening

There is something moving about photographing a small baby during a christening service. It is prevalent that through their innocence, we are reminded on how God is love!

This past weekend I found myself taking part with a beloved christening that took place at the Holy Trinity + Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral.

I have done work for this lovely family a handful of times prior, so it meant the world for me to not only come in and document this sacred time for them but also be a witness of such a holy time.

The rituals of the church were calming and spiritual to me as I stood quietly, observing their practice and songs. Everything from the candles to the intricate details of the holy water and oils they bathed the baby in created a sanctuary rich in tradition.

I absolutely loved observing and documenting this important ritual for this family!
