Christening photography

Because I specialise in people photography it’s natural I enjoy photographing Christenings as well as wedding and family portrait photography. I photograph Christenings like a mini wedding in many ways. It’s nice to photography the ceremony, the little details shots (Christening cake etc.) as well as capturing your family and friends enjoying the celebrations.

We usually recommend a 1 1/2 hour coverage, ideal to photograph the church ceremony and some family photographs afterwards (you can always add extra time if you like. A few days after the Christening,  the edited and processed photographs are posted in your own dedicated online gallery and the high resolution digital files are sent to you. You can order prints, wall portraits and albums from your gallery if you like (no obligation obviously).

I always think a Christening album is a lovely thing to have, great to put away and pull out when the baby is older. It’s like a little time capsule, preserving the memories of the day.

If you would like me to photograph your baby’s Christening, please get in touch for availability and further details.

Baby Nefeli’s Christening
