I had the pleasure of photographing a friend's daughter's First Communion last Sunday.
I love to shoot family celebrations. It's always fun for me.
regret that statement six hours and 450 photos later.
She wrote: These pictures are sooo awesome. I can't stop looking at them!!! You need to do this more- I never thought cookies and candles could look so pretty. And you definitely got more than one money shot.
I joked with her about the money shots. You know, what shots were the must haves of the day. They were shots of her daughter smiling, a shot of her daughter and son smiling, some photos of the church and that was about it.
I am so happy I got a photo of the father doing a reading. He wasn't in many shots and he was just fine with that.
Our First Communion girl's favorite color is pink so the priests wore their pink robes just for her special day.
I wish I had moved a few inches to my right for this shot. I had to walk a fine line when photographing this religious event. I did not want to be intrusive or disrespectful.
I loved these table markers. Each one had the name of a Saint.
All of the cookies for the reception were made by aunts and cousins and friends.
So much love for one special little girl. I was truly blessed to witness and photograph the day.
