Love These: Cable Knit Christening Blankets

Once they were gone, and now they’re back…my favorite baby blankets ever! I had one of these for my little guy, and I’m here to tell you that these blankets offer a just-right combination of size, softness, and special-without-being-too-fancy-look. The mid-weight knit has a bit of stretch to it, so it’s great for swaddling, and the color is perfect for christenings and blessings, but also just right for taking baby to church or simply out-on-the-town.

Bonus: if our Aiden christening outfit is your cup-of-tea, this blankie is a perfect match!+

10 Tips for Perfect Christening Portraits

Welcome to the first in a two-post series about photography centered on your baby’s christening or blessing. I’ve broken this down into separate posts because ideally, you want to capture images that focus on two distinct subjects: the BABY, and the EVENT. Today’s post is all about the BABY, baby! Stay tuned for information on capturing “The Main Event”.

Portraits are personal snapshots that should capture the emotion and essence of the subject’s unique personality. Because no moment can ever be a re-do, it pays to put thought into what you want and to communicate clearly with your photographer to create a vision for your session. Without further ado, here are 10 things for you to consider when planning your portrait session.
