If you decide to go to the expense of employing us to photograph your child's Christening, we feel it is important to take full advantage of the family nature of such a day. For this reason our coverage of Christenings includes as many photographs of the extended family as is possible. The following is what we consider to be the best method of covering a Christening.
1½ HOURS BEFORE THE CHURCH SERVICE
Photographer arrives and prepares an area for the child's formal photographs.
45 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE CHURCH SERVICE
Start formal photographs. These should, if all goes well, consist of the following:
- Individuals of child.
- Mother and child.
- Mother, Father and Child.
- Whole family group.
- Siblings and Child
It is important to keep this session fairly quiet and quick because (a) one gets the best results and (b) The baby is then in a fit state for the service. Some of you I know would rather have this session up to 2 hours before the start of the service and we are am happy to do this, but it does extend the coverage somewhat as can be seen in Christening prices.
ARRIVAL AT CHURCH
We keep these shots very informal, just a few shots as friends and family gather at the Church before the Christening.
DURING THE SERVICE
During the service we can click quietly around and about without flash and capture the important stuff.
Once the service is over, we are more than happy to do some shots around the font. These photos should include the following.
- Mother, Father and baby.
- Mother, Father, Baby and Vicar.
- As in 1 above with siblings.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE SERVICE
Here we are keen to get as many formal photographs as you want out of the way as quickly as possible. These normally take place back at the house, either inside or outside and should consist of some or all of the following: -
- 3 or more generations etc.
DURING THE RECEPTION
If time allows, we are happy to stay for part or all of the reception to get some informal and candid shots of those attending.
