When your little one has a special event like their Christening or birthday party (or in this case, both at the same time!), you have so much to organise as a parent. You want to be able to enjoy the day and focus on your special guests and your little one, so getting the day captured means that you’re able to do that! Before the day I always send out a quick questionnaire just to find out what you really want to be captured. Usually we make sure to capture you and your little one in some more formal type photos with special guests, and then the rest of the time I simply just capture what’s actually going on. The real life moments, reactions and details of the special day – the ones that really tell the story! You then receive ALL of your edited images AND a beautiful slideshow to look back and remember your day!
Ethan was celebrating not only his Christening, but also his first birthday! Despite not having had his normal sleep in the morning, he was absolutely perfect throughout the entire day! We started capturing moments at home while he was getting ready, and then this gorgeous little boy fell asleep in the car on the way to the Church. He slept through most of the ceremony, but then woke happily and calmly when it was time to get changed. It can always be stressful wondering how they’ll cope during these events, but Ethan was a total superstar! And now his family have these beautiful memories to look back on forever!!
If you’d like me to capture some memories for you too, Contact me here to chat. You can also view my Events Portfolio for more examples of my work. I have a very relaxed, ‘fly on the wall’ type approach to capturing events, as I really want to capture moments as they truly happen. As always, I want to tell your authentic story!
