Portraits of a Special Redhead in His Christening Outfit

For me, one of the best parts about being a photographer is taking pictures the people closest to me. So, you can imagine how excited I was to get the chance to photograph my godson (who I had also just met for the first time!) the day before he was christened.


Leland is such a trooper. He had already had a long day, but was perfectly content to have his photo made, as long as he had unlimited access to sticks. To be honest, I’m not convinced he isn’t a wizard. Take a look at this photo, and you decide.


Even a wizard can get tired of kisses, however.


This outfit was actually made by his Grandmother on his mom's side! He rocked it with style, and even managed to avoid getting it dirty before the next day’s ceremony.

At the end of the day, Carolita and I couldn’t help but sneak a smooch in ourselves. Thanks for taking this photo, Patrick!
