Little Sebastian’s baptism is the perfect example of why I love what I do so much, which is to form long-lasting, meaningful relationships with my clients. They’re more than just business, they become friends. Like Will and Mimosa here. I first photographed their engagement in 2011, then their wedding, and now, a beautiful bundle of joy in this new chapter in their lives.
Will and Mimosa heard about me from their church friend/makeup artist. They met with me despite having their hearts set on another wedding photographer. But obviously, my wit and charm won them over, they fell in love with me and my work, and the rest is history. Pffffffff . . .
My philosophy is not to just take pretty pictures, but rather, to be your go-to gal when you want to document all those special life moments.
Sebastian is two and a half months. This is the first time I’ve been asked to shoot a baptism. Even though I’ve attended quite a handful of these affairs as a guest, this is the first time I got so worked up with emotion! The baptism took place in the same lovely church where Will and Mimosa were married, amongst an intimate group of family and close friends.
What a precious doll Sebastian is, he slept through the entire ceremony, even when the priest poured holy water on his sweet, little head.
Afterwards, the party continued on at Roy’s. We played Pass-The-Baby around the dinner tables and Sebastian was just happy as a clam.
The only thing that was missing? Will and Mimosa’s little white dog, who was present at their e-sesh and their wedding. He’s no longer the first-born 🙂
