This past Saturday was the BIG day for many 2nd graders in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. It was the day they have looked forward to for a very long time – their first holy communion. I had been booked for this day a year ago! I had the pleasure of working with two families on the day. I met with the G family bright and early before church to photograph their daughter Caroline. Last year had been big sister Catherine’s communion and so I was looking forward to spending time with the family again.

Caroline was in her element. She looked positively radiant and bursting with excitement for this momentous occasion. I captured images for the whole family (there are two younger brothers) and then Caroline and I ventured inside Transfiguration Church for some classic communion poses. She was very natural and at ease in front of the camera. I only wish I were the same.

I love the outtake of the whole family on the left. The boys were just about done at this point.

I will post a selection from the V family collection soon.

It does not seem possible that it was two years ago that we were at the same location taking photographs of Sara for her pre communion. At the time I observed Emma and knew she was going to LOVE when it was her turn to be the center of attention. She is such a sweet girl and wonderfully natural in front of the camera. I look forward to seeing her at church on Saturday for the big day.

We spent some time at Transfiguration Church before heading to Horan’s Landing for the opportunity to capture some great candid shots of Emma with her sister, Sara and younger brother, Luke. Luke had declared at the beginning of the session that he did not want to be in any of the photos. Within seconds he had changed his mind and was scouting out photo spots for me! He is a ham!

This is one of his ideas. Laying on the church carpet! PERFECT.

Here is Emma’s slideshow:

We had a blast. I cannot wait to do it all over again for Luke. In the blink of an eye we will be back there.
