On-Location Christening Photo Session
Presenting Victoria Sophia & Amelia Grace
If I were checking off a list for this portrait session it would look something like this:
Camera - check
We started the session with the girls fresh off a nap, always a good idea to start off with a fresh set of baby batteries. With plenty of help from mommy and an assistant we posed Victoria and Amelia as best we could on a cushioned floor carefully propped up using posing pillows. The girls weren't sitting on their own fully without support. Can you tell?
At first Victoria would not crack a smile but Amelia was quite the opposite she was ready to have a great time, all smiles. No worries though, it only took a few shutter releases to get Victoria comfortable in front of the camera and the flashing lights. Being in front of the camera makes grown ups tense at times, I can only imagine how the babies feel, it would make me nervous too.
Dressed in their beautiful, just delivered from Etsy, Christening gowns, Amelia and Victoria allowed mommy, Maribel, and my wife, Lea to pose them like little porcelain dolls. These two are the opposite to porcelain dolls, you know like the kind that don't stay still for very long. It was fine, I used a fast shutter on the camera and two very nice lights to capture these angelic shots.
The nuns at my Catholic school would more than likely frown upon the use of a crucifix in this manner, but it's so cute we couldn't resist, look at those little toes.
We separated the two cuties to see what they would do on their own, almost immediately Victoria turned on the charm and pegged the adorable meter at 10 (the meter goes up to 10 max, get it?). Shhh, don't tell Amelia, she might get offended, her sister wanted solo portraits.
Like true divas the girls gave us the signal that the shoot was over. It was nap time to recoup the energy expended so I turned to the Christening gowns, shoes, hats and head piece, all of the items for their big day.
Special thanks to my cousins, Maribel (mommy), Alex (daddy), and the stars of the session Amelia and Victoria.
