Beyond the pristine lace and joyous smiles, lies a deeper story waiting to unfold. This isn’t just a christening – it’s a tapestry woven with whispered prayers, tender touches, and the quiet awe of welcoming a new soul into the fold.

Through the lens of documentary photography, I don’t stage moments, I capture them. I’m a silent observer, witness to the laughter shared between grandparents, the nervous flutter of a mother’s hand, and the raw emotion etched on the father’s face.

It’s in these unfiltered moments, bathed in soft, natural light, that the true essence of your christening comes alive. This isn’t about perfectly posed portraits, but about preserving the whispers of love, the tears of joy, and the echoes of blessings that resonate long after the ceremony ends.

Join me on this intimate journey, where I don’t just document your christening, I tell its story. A story whispered in smiles, held in tears, and forever preserved in the magic of light and lens.

Top Tips For Christening Photography


    • Capture the candid moments: Instead of posed shots, focus on capturing the natural interactions and emotions of the day. This could include photos of the baby being held by loved ones, the parents’ expressions of joy, and the reactions of guests during the ceremony.

    • Pay attention to the details: Small details can tell a big story. Be sure to capture things like the baby’s christening outfit, the baptismal font, and any special decorations or momentos.

    • Use natural light: Whenever possible, use natural light to create a soft and flattering look. This is especially important in churches, which can often be dimly lit.

    • Get creative with your angles: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different angles and perspectives. This can help you to create more interesting and engaging photos.

    • Tell a story: The best christening photos are those that tell a story of the day. Think about the flow of events and try to capture the key moments in a way that tells a cohesive narrative.

    • Be respectful of the ceremony and the privacy of others.

    • Be prepared to move around quickly and quietly.

    • Have a good understanding of your camera settings so that you can adjust them quickly as needed.

    • Most importantly, relax and have fun! Christening photography is a great way to capture a special day in the life of a family.
