We drove 45 mins from the studio and pulled in to an empty church parking lot.
I quietly entered to find a woman who told me to make myself at home.
There was one other man in the entire church and he was sitting in a pew sketching out a painting of his grandchildren. How ironic that we were both at church to create art.
Then in walks these two little cuties. Dressed like young, beautiful, innocent little brides. I was photographing the celebration of their First Communion.
It was a very emotional time for mom, which made the whole experience really special for me. I love capturing these moments for people- the ones they fear they will forget even the slightest detail of- how their curls fell, what gloves they wore, and the bond these sisters share at this exact moment. The photos are rich with history too- great grandmas bible, grandmas gifted rosaries, moms veil.
I've only photographed in a church twice (not counting weddings) and the light is pure magic. There is literally little glowing sparkles of beauty in every image.
After that we went out to a tiny strip of grass off the side of the parking lot and played in the dandelions. It was an opportunity for the girls to let loose a bit, yell, dance, and play.
Take a look at what we caught-
