family gathered around during infant greek orthodox baptism

I have had the pleasure of shooting in this church, with this family, on a number of occasion from weddings to baptisms. In fact, the little girl in the pink dress and glasses right at the very front of this image? It all started when I met her mommy and daddy in a coffee shop YEARS ago and photographed their wedding, and I did her sweet baptism as well. This time, it was baby cousin’s turn <3. Also, I just adored how all of these kids were RIGHT THERE with her for the whole thing. Only a couple of them were a part of the ceremony, but everyone was eager to participate and witness, so baby E. had a full entourage of sweet helpers for the day!

Note: There are so many intricate details in a Greek Orthodox Baptism, that while I captured every one for the family, these are just SOME of them in an effort to keep this post to under 40 images!

About

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
