Baptism Portrait

Madeline Grace

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining this family as they baptized their little girl at their church, Our Lady of Mount Virgin, in Garfield, NJ.

We started the morning at their home while they dressed Madeline for her big day, and ended with formal family photos at the church after the ceremony.

She wore a gorgeous white dress with beautiful beading and lace. It took the whole family to get her into it.

She also wore a beautiful cross necklace, which her godfather places around her neck.

After a few family photos at home with her parents and godparents and their families, we then headed to the church.

It was a beautiful ceremony and Madeline was (mostly) all smiles! By the end she was so worn out from her big day that she fell asleep in her parents arms as we took formal family photos at church to end the day.

It was such a pleasure to be there to photograph this big day! Thank you for inviting me into your celebration and trusting me to capture these memories!
