Chiara and her family are from Burnaby, located in Southwest corner of Canada. It was such a joy to hear about Chiara’s Christening! Her mom, Kristy, shared with us the beautiful day she had envisioned for her youngest daughter and all the details from Chiara’s very special day. Chiara looked like a little doll in her Melissa Christening Gown and Bonnet. The Melissa Gown is made with white cotton and white floral lace with a hint of pink. It matched perfectly with the white and pink themed day Kristy planned. You can read all the details from Chiara’s Simply Elegant Baptism on our site here.
Kristy had professional photos taken of Chiara prior to the event date and highly recommends other parents to do the same. It allowed her to get all the detailed photos of Chiara in her christening gown that she wanted. She also took many photos throughout the day of special moments, such as the Chiara’s God Parents dressing her in her christening outfit.
[blockquote source=”Kristy”]I’m also glad we got pictures of her with her sister because it is impossible the day of the event to get good sibling pictures because it is impossible the day of the event to get good sibling pictures when it is so busy and chaotic! I was also able to use these professional pictures of her in her dress for thank you cards after event. I wished we had taken professional photos of her in her after christening outfit because she was way too tired by the end of the day to take any good photos![/blockquote]
If you’re not able to schedule professional photos, still consider snapping a few photos of your little one yourself before or after the event. Need a few tips? Check out Location, Location, Location for great indoor photography tips.
