I was asked to photograph a baptism. The ceremony was at St. Joseph's on Capitol Hill, followed by a reception at the couple's house.
The new grandmother
Shooting at St. Joseph's presented some challenges. It has a high ceiling that is painted blue, making it dark inside. Even when using flash, the light gets lost in the space above our heads.
At one point during the reception, two friends got out hairbands for the little girl. They had fun figuring out which one to put on her head to replace the bow.
They chose the feather, leading her father to comment on the 1920s flapper look it gave her.
I liked this quiet moment of baby and grandmother.
