This was such a beautiful and meaningful day to record for this family. Alessandra’s mother, Vita, had the most radiant look of pride on her face through the whole baptism. Their family and friends came in from all over to witness this special moment and then join them for a party afterward. We never heard a peep out of the sweet baby, when the water was poured on her forehead she just gave a little start and then went back to sleep. I was honored to be part of this important moment for their family, here are a few shots of the day.

    I’ll confess to not seeing a lot of baptism photos, but these are easily the best I’ve ever seen.
