Santuario de San Antonio
Palm Grove, The Rockwell Club
A few weeks before her baptism, I took some portraits of Annika to use for her guestbook. We did the pictorial the day after the family arrived from Dubai. So, naturally, Annika was still trying to get used to her new surroundings so she was a bit fussy. It didn't help either that it was terribly humid that day. We were all very patient with her though, and we were still able to get nice shots. Below are just some of them:
Soooo cute! Look at those long lashes!
I love the light and the textures in this photo.
It's amazing what a big difference a couple of weeks makes to a baby. When I saw Annika again on the day of her baptism, it felt like she had grown a lot. And she wasn't as fussy as she was the first time we met. It was a rainy weekend, but everything went smoothly. And the whole family was really really nice. It didn't feel like work for me at all!
Here are some of my favorite shots from the event.
First off, the baptismal attire.
Of course, a shot of Annika before she got dressed. She looks so much bigger here, doesn't she?

A nice family photo before heading for the church.
