Brenna’s First Holy Communion

Up until recently, my only frame of reference for First Holy Communion photos was the following:

Yep, that’s me, age 7, on the day of my First Holy Communion wearing a dress that I believe several of my cousins wore as well (also, check out the bag…what did I need a bag for?? It’s not even big enough to hold a Barbie). So when Brenna’s mom asked me to take her Communion portraits, that was the picture that popped into my head. And although I am as cute as button (HA!), I knew I wanted to get a little more creative and take it outside the studio.

We were lucky enough to get into Brenna’s church (Sacred Heart in South Philly), then we took a ride over to FDR park for some fun outdoor photos, and headed back home for studio shots. I am SO happy with the results, and Brenna was a fantastic model, I hardly had to tell her to do anything! ┬áHere are some of my favorites, if you’d like to see more, check out the video!
