Adorable First Communion Photos | Austin and Round Rock Photographer

First Communion portrait sessions are one of the most adorable things I photograph!

These kids meet me up at their church, dressed in their beautiful white dresses for girls and suits for boys. They are so excited to have their upcoming First Communion at church! I get big smiles and reverent portraits all in one portrait session! It always brings a smile to my face!

I had the opportunity to photograph second graders at St. John Neuman Catholic Church in Austin and St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Round Rock this year. Both Catholic churches are gorgeous inside and out.

Parents know to document these milestones for your children, but some times with the hustle and bustle of life, we tend to forget or put it off to the last minute.

Don’t let that happen!

The beauty of these photos is they were all taken before the day of First Communion, so the families and children didn’t feel rushed or pressured to get everything done on the same day. I could capture the excitement on their faces when they were telling me what they were looking forward to the most on their First Communion day. And most of the children brought their rosaries to their portrait sessions to include in their portraits!

Check out these beautiful First Communion portrait sessions!

Photographing a Baptism | St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church, Pflugerville, TX

Last December, I had the great honor of photographing the Baptism of a little girl at St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church in Pflugerville, TX.  This is a special event for this little girl, her parents, and all her extended friends and family.  She wore the most adorable white baptism gown, and she didn't even cry when the water was poured over her head.

Photographing this event truly was a privilege for me to capture this momentous occasion for her parents.  And they could really jus sit back and enjoy it instead of having to worry about photographing all the entire ceremony because I was there to photograph it for them.  Check out these Baptism photos taken last month.
