A beautiful baptism shoot by Amy Fanton

We don’t share many baptism shoots, I imagine because it’s something that many people don’t hire a professional to capture. But it’s an important milestone in baby’s life, along with one they’re likely to be all dressed up for and surrounded by family and friends, so it’s a great chance to get some lovely shots. As Amy Fanton proves with the wonderful shoot we’re sharing today!

I had the pleasure of photographing this baptism back in May in one of the most beautiful cathedrals in all of London – St. Mary Abbots, located in the heart of Kensington.

I generally approach christening photo sessions the same way I would approach a wedding in terms of capturing the details, the ceremony, formal and candid portraits of the family and lots of individual portraits of the special little girl or boy. In this particular instance however, photos were not allowed during the ceremony inside of the church.

I met baby S and her mom several days before the actual baptism to take some individual portraits of the baby and the baptismal gown as many families find the day of celebration a bit chaotic and busy for a formal portrait session. I had done newborn photographs for Baby S back in October and I was so surprised when I met her this time to see how big and beautiful she had become in such a short few months! She was such a smiley and sweet little girl, it was really my pleasure!

A baby boy’s mint nursery by Decor8

When Holly Becker of the fabulous Decor 8 (a blog full of inspiring interiors) had a nursery to decorate for her baby boy, you just knew the result was going to be amazing!

She pinned inspiration to this Pinterest board before pulling together a gorgeous calming room in a palette of mint, grey and yellow. An awesome assortment of toys, a fantastic felted rug and the cutest smiling storage boxes really finish off this nursery…

The Last Time

This beautiful poem made its way into my facebook news feed today, reminding me of the poem for parents we featured last year, This Small. There’s no such thing as too often when it comes to being reminded to appreciate the little things, nobody wants to look back and regret the things they didn’t do. So squeeze a little tighter, sing that ‘one more song’ at bedtime, because this time, might be the last time.
