May God Bless the new edition to your family.

Alicja Photography will be excited and honored to share such an important day in your and your child's life!

are moments of celebration. These are moments symbolizing purification or the regeneration and admission into the faith of the church. Having baptism photography, and capturing these unique once-in-a-lifetime moments is very important. They don't come back around.

As a photographer, I will capture all throughout the ceremony the atmosphere that will be felt, all the emotions, the details, and all the fun at your reception.

Having a formal photoshoot before the celebration begins is a great option to have a couple of great pre-baptism photographs in peace and quiet. 

Now let’s talk about what gets photographed

Prior to the Ceremony

Some families ask to have photos of the baby “getting ready”. Meet at your house before the Ceremony for getting ready photos and portraits of the child.  This includes the following:

• Pre-Ceremony Outfit • Baptismal Outfit • Baptismal Cross and Chain baptism-outfit • Olive Oil • White hand towels • Baptismal Candles • Martyrika-in some cultures these witness pins are used which are handed out to guests at the end of a ceremony • Additional items include shoes, a copy of the invitation for the guests, florals, or any other details you see fit.

If time allows, I usually like to get some family photos done prior to the Ceremony, but at this point in time, I primarily focus on candids.

The Ceremony

Again, depending on the type of Baptism your child receives, a ceremony can be anywhere from 45-90 minutes. During this time I confirm with the Priest where I am allowed to stand and photograph. In most cases, they allow me onto the alter to take close-up photos of the baby being submerged. Other than that we have the lighting of the candles and the blessings which are typically done while the Godparents, family, and baby are seated in the pews. 

After the Ceremony

Immediately after the Ceremony concludes I ask the Priest to jump in for a family photo. After that, we will proceed to the remaining family portrait combinations and additional Family Group Shots and “ALL party” group shots.

Fine Art Portraits

Portraits are created at my home studio, in the park, or in the church.

The Reception

Now it’s time to have fun! During the reception, I will be capturing the decor details, cake, food, cocktail reception, and plenty of candids! At this point all the family photos and important rituals are covered, so parents get to sit back and enjoy. I hope this post helped those of you who are planning a Baptism in the future and be sure to send me a message with any questions you may have!
