As an event photographer and on-location baby photographer, one of the most important things is having the best weather. I was recently invited to cover a Baptism ceremony. Thanks to the beautiful weather, we were able to have a family portrait session outdoors at the end of the ceremony, I was very glad to be part of this day. With some time to spare, we even got to capture baby pictures and family and guests were also part of it. This handsome young boy accompanied by his big brother and loving family was blessed with the first sacrament of the Christian Church. The event was celebrated at St. Mary’s Church located at Tuxedo Park, NY. “Baptism is the first sacrament of the Christian Church.
A sacrament is defined as “an outwardly and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace, ordained by Christ.” Sacraments are mystery at their core and as such, can never be fully understood; rather each person is to accept a sacrament through faith and strive to grow deeper into the mystery of the sacrament and the strength, grace and mercy it brings to the individual.
