Greek Orthodox Christenings are SUCH beautiful ceremonies with no shortage of captivating moments, and objects to be photographed. They are also a great opportunity for families to come together to celebrate new life. For me, this is a really special Christening; it is the Christening of my own nephew! As a specialised family photographer I do not miss the opportunity to create a beautiful portrait, one that the family can frame and cherish as heirloom. When I photograph Christenings, my intention is that of a portrait photographer (which happens to be my specialisation in photography) – wanting to capture the drama and emotion of human expression, and perhaps, a brief glimpse into the soul!

I focus on the key actors involved in the ceremony, aiming to capture un-posed photographs of the godparents, parents, grand-parents) and guests. I love capturing the grand-parents’ smiles as they look at their grand-child’s expressions, and the mothers’ worried look as their precious child is getting readied to be baptized in the water, and the mother comforting her baby at the end of the ceremony!


Love,
Alexia
