Recently, we featured Emmaline’s Christening Story on our website. Emmaline was christened this past winter wearing our Gwen Lace Christening Gown. Emmaline’s mom is a professional photographer and was kind to share photos and details about her little girl’s special day. The photos she shared were beautiful, creative and highlighted all the special moments from throughout the day.
One of my favorite photos Andrea took was of Emmaline’s Gwen Lace Christening Bonnet hanging from her dresser. It was creative and showed the detail of the bonnet well! She also took close up photos of Emmaline’s christening jewelery and close up photos of Emmaline, such as a darling photo of Emmaline’s feet peaking out from the bottom hem of her gown.
Don’t forget to take pictures as you get your little one dressed in their outfit. For many, it’s traditional to have the Godparents dress the baby in the christening outfit and a very special moment to capture on camera. This photo would make a sweet, meaningful gift to your child’s godparents.
Immediately after the baby is dressed in their christening outfit is a wonderful time to take pictures. Most likely, the outfit is still clean and wrinkle free.
At the Church
The church is great place to take group photos too! A good photo also captures the surrounding environment, and typically, churches offer great photo locations inside and out.
Before the service starts, be certain to designate a friend or family member as the official photographer during the christening ceremony.
At the Celebration
Don’t forget to photograph all the special details from the after christening celebration, such as the cake, decor and your baby’s after christening outfit.
