This type of portrait is probably one of the biggest milestones for the Catholic community. Parents love capturing this moment and handing down a beautiful wall portrait to their children who pass this tradition down to their children and so forth. I love getting these children in front of my camera. Many of them are very nervous about the whole process of the communion and then there is the camera and taking portraits!
Many children this age are apprehensive about getting a portrait done and for me its getting them comfortable in front of the camera. Kate was a little reserved at first but once I let her have a peek at how beautiful she looked there was not stopping the fun we had capturing her personality. I take the time we need with each child to gain my confidence and be themselves in front of my camera.
