Baptism || St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Columbus

I can't decide which part is my favorite one of baptism, the smearing of the olive oil or the dunking of the little one in the blessed bath lol. I was so thrilled when Elena (Kirill's mom) called me and ask to capture Kirill's baptism in Columbus which was held at St Nicholas Orthodox Church. It was a beautiful summer day, the gorgeous natural light coming in from windows; the smell of aged wood and books in the air (deep inhale...ahhhhh). I have always thought of myself as a contemporary woman who loves modern design and unconventional ways but there is just something about deeply rooted traditions that bring family and friends together in celebration that I absolutely adore.

Thank you so much for having me be apart of such a special day and enjoy my favorites from this baptism.

This is one of my fav shot from this Baptism. I can feel the atmosphere through this pic!

How important all details

I always do family pictures at the church
