EVENTS | Cranston Christening at Holy Apostles Church

Last week we photographed a christening for one of our wedding couples niece / godchild at Holy Apostles Church in Cranston, Rhode Island. Our past couple, Kyle and Kate, were the Godparents to Kate’s sister’s baby. Kate wanted to give her sister a surprise photography package as this was the first family event after losing their Mom to cancer a few weeks prior. So they wanted to make sure the event was photographed.

We documented the ceremony and coordinated a few family portraits afterwards. Below is the super sweet review that Allison {Kate’s Sister} emailed us:

Hi Nicole, 
   I can’t thank you enough for the beautiful job you did with the pictures from Isabella’s christening. I am so happy you were able to capture such beautiful memories for all of us. When my mom first passed away I realized how everything for the baby thus far has been surrounded by so much sadness. My maternity leave ended up being coupled with my bereavement time. It was the saddest and happiest time in my life. I was honestly so nervous about Sunday because it was one of the first events without my mom. Before my mom passed she said to me “things won’t be the same but it will still be a good life.” You captured the first picture of us as a family with things not being the same. I will always be able to look at that picture and remember the significance behind it but also the happiness we still have.”
