Christening Photography Perth
Christening photography or baptism photography is a special event in the life of every Christian. It is an important spiritual and family milestone as well as a step towards strengthening your relationship with God. A picture is worth a thousand words, and that is particularly true for christening pictures. Since they record this moment, people want to make sure that they look their best but how do you pull off the perfect christening photo?
A Woman’s Touch Photography has got you covered! As professional experienced photographers, we shoot each session with care and creativity to produce beautiful works of art that anyone would be proud to hang on their walls. Our style is friendly and relaxed and we love doing sessions in outdoor or fine-art locations, just as much as in our comfortable and private indoor studio.
Tips For Getting A Baptism Photos
First, consider the attire. Christenings are generally formal events in Christian churches, so wear something nice that isn't uncomfortable in front of a lot of people. Women should wear dresses or skirts, while men should wear slacks and button-up shirts with neckties instead of ties. Leave the jeans, shorts and t-shirts at home so you can focus on having fun.
Second, consider the location. Churches are traditional for many christenings because they give photographers great backgrounds to work with. However, churches aren't the only locations that can produce good baptism photos; just about any outdoor area that has a pretty backdrop will do. Remember to take into account the light and pick a location that offers plenty of it.
Finally, consider being flexible during the service itself. Some churches have more traditional rituals than others; if yours is less formal, try to find a way to work with it so you can get great pictures of your child's first religious experience. Whether it's standing for the service, sitting down or allowing your baby to sit on your lap during part of the ceremony, make sure you aren't stuck in one position because you wanted to pose for christening photos.
How We Will Take Your Baptism Pictures
New life in Christ through baptism pictures and symbolism is a beautiful thing, for sure. When putting together ideas for baptism pictures, keep in mind that there are certain things that are required or forbidden by the church such as using non-biblical images like cartoons or fantasy figures. A good picture would also include either the pastor who will be performing the baptism as part of the picture or a clear shot of him performing it.
- One is to use fresh white robes because they are perfect for those who will be baptized and symbolize their purity. If you wish, we could go with a much simpler and plain white background and then put the person in the centre, or have a more visually interesting background.
- If you want to do something symbolic in the sky such as a dove for the Holy Spirit, we will make sure it is not an actual bird which would seem like a form of idolatry and we will be very careful when working with elements such as clouds; they can easily look cheesy or amateur.
- If you are having the baptism done at a beach, river, etc., we will make sure there is some water in the shot. The picture of someone sitting alone on a bank without any reason for his or her being there will look silly and empty even if it is beautifully composed or taken from an artistic angle. It would be much better to show the baptism site and include some water in the picture or at least a few drops of water on the person's head.
- We will make sure everyone is dressed nicely and that all of the clothes fit with each other, the colours should work well together. Unless your church is very casual about such things, it is best if the clothes coordinate and fit in with each other instead of looking like a hodgepodge of different outfits.
