First Communion

Every year, I get asked to do some First Communion pictures, which I always enjoy. Usually I do them in studio.  But this time, I was asked to go to a church and photograph a group of friends who were going through this rite of passage together.  The first step was getting permission from the church for me photograph inside it.  I am grateful that we got permission during a time it was not in active use, so we were able to do what we needed without interfering or interrupting anything.  These girls may be silly as can be, but they certainly made beautiful young ladies on this day.

Each girl had her own look, and I loved seeing their individual personalities shine through.  They really enjoyed doing this photo shoot together. it made it all the more memorable for them.

These next two girls are actually twin sisters, and the ringleaders of this event since I have photographed their family before.

Even though First Communion pictures are a sort of mini session, I tried to get several different poses for each girl.

Each girl enjoyed her moment in the spotlight while her friends watched (and giggled) in the background.


And one more of their group of friends. I hope they always look back at this time and remember their close friendship on the day of their First Communion.

If you have a child going through their First Communion this spring and are interested in commemorating the event with professional pictures, please contact Firefly Nights to discuss.  We welcome you at our studio or on location.  And we do allow a group discount if several friends want to do their pictures together, which would result in both group and individual pictures.  Just click on our Book Now or Contact Me buttons.
