The First Sacrament Package


As a Catholic photograher...

...I wanted to find a niche that would fit my beliefs. My love for the Church made this the clear path. As a practicing Catholic, I know the importance of the sacraments, so I make it a priority to capture every aspect of the ritual.

Why hire a Catholic photographer?

I understand the liturgy, the Roman rituals, and the elements and rubrics of the sacraments, including the Traditional Rite. Baptism is a sacrament that marks the beginning of the Christian life. It is the first and most important of the seven sacraments, and a Catholic photographer that understands the sacraments will help you capture this important moment.

List of key shots to capture during the Rite of Baptism:

✢ Reception of the child at the entrance:
• The blessing of salt
• Minor exorcism
• Prayer of Enlightenment

✢ Inside the temple:
• At the gate of the baptistery—The Creed, the Lord’s Prayer and final exorcism

✢ Inside the Baptistery:
• Final profession of faith
• Act of baptizing
• Anointing with Chrism
• Bestowal of the white robe
• Bestowal of the blessed candle

✢ Blessing for the mother at the entrance and at the altar
✢ Family photos
✢ Any baptism mementos

NOTE: The New Rite of Baptism (Novus Ordo) is considerably different from the Traditional Rite in the Extraordinary Form, but the essence remains the same. Every moment will be captured in a beautiful way.

Where are you based?

Phoenix, Arizona

What is your turnaround time?

From one to two weeks.

How many photos will we get?

The package will include 15 edited 4x6 prints (professionally printed on archival-quality photographic paper). Even though technology has simplified the transfer and sharing of digital images, I feel it is still important to get photos printed, that’s why I like to include a selection of prints. It really does make memories more tangible!

You will also have the option to purchase any high-resolution digital files with print release (royalty-free) directly from a private gallery, which will be live for 60 days. You will be notified before it goes offline should you need it longer.
