This session was really special and inspiring to me. I love doing first holy communion portraits - I love the beauty and importance of the occasion and I love working with children that age. I met this handsome boy at his church and he was very patient with me while I made him kneel, hold his eyes open in bright light, and hold a heavy Bible for a long time.
I especially like going with families to their churches at these sorts of occasions, so I was really glad that it worked out.
After he survived my ideas at the church, we went to the Botanic Gardens - it is SO beautiful there right now! We went to all my favorite photography locations there and I love what we got.
I also love to get moms and their sons together! I love these.
The flowers were so beautiful. The whole time I was thinking that I really need to bring my daughters for some fun girls pictures next.
This was one of my very favorites from the session.
