One of my favorite things about being a photographer is that I get invited to some pretty important milestones in other people’s lives. Like a child’s first communion. And it really is a win-win for me and the client because Jen, who hired me to photograph her son’s first communion, doesn’t have to worry about getting photos of the day. She can just sit back and enjoy the ceremony and dinner, without the additional worry of sufficiently documenting it. These are some of the photos I took that day at the beautiful Blessed Sacrament Church in Warren, Ohio. Man, I hope to do more work in that church. It was so bright and airy in there, which is not typical of churches, as you probably know.

Here, the priest is splashing holy water on the congregation. I had to duck and weave to avoid the water. Holy or otherwise, my camera is not a fan of water. No, sir.

What do you do when you’ve had a long day and you’ve pretty much had enough? You cuddle with your Mama, that’s what.
