A baptism shooting is always very special and demanding, since the “babies” are unpredictable and mistakes can not be corrected. Our team’s photographers, which have great experience with these occassions and other professional photo sessions with children such as school parties, can capture beautiful moments with enthusiasm and vitality to cheer our young models.
In every baptism the photographer has to be very experienced and to know very well the procedure. The babies at the baptism have to get their photos before and after the baptism. We always start with the portraits of the children who will get their photographs with their parents and their godmother and godfather. Next in line are the clothes, the candle, the cross, crucifix, the oil, the testimonies of the baby. Every time the photographers must have new and innovative ideas in order to give them the feeling of enjoyment when they are grown up. Apart from the baby, it is very important to have their pictures taken right all the family members. Mother, mum, father, dad, godmother, godfathers, grandmothers, grandfathers should have many pictures and look beautiful. When the photographer and his crew have the proper experience know very well that apart from the very expensive cameras and gear, they need an appropriate look and natural kindness. They need to be at the church before the photoshooting in order to be calm and relaxed. They need to take amazing architectural photos of the church, to light right the inside of the church and not to run and to everything last minute. The family of the baby will be at the courtyard half an hour before the baptism in order to have theirs and their baby photos taken properly. Next there is the baptism, where the priest and the godfather of the godmather will give the baby a name. Also, something very important for the photographers is to be patient and cheerful in order to cooperate with the priests and the verger of the church. Not only someone has to be good at their job, they also must to communicate right and smart wherever they are and in every situation. In all of our shootings we always take with us more cameras than needed and more lighting fixtured than need, because we want to be prepared for anything. This avoid stress and we stay calm against every problem. So, when a baptism photographer is needed, you know who you have to call.
