Baby Victoria was full of smiles for her christening at St Sophia’s Cathedral in Bayswater. This Greek Orthodox Church at the heart of the Greek community in West London is a favourite place for us to photograph for its magnificently decorated interiors and beautiful gardens. Everything we need is in one location and, as anyone who works with children knows, keeping it simple and stress-free is the key to beautiful christening photography and videography. We are grateful to the Very Reverend Archimandrite Theonas Bakalis for his warm welcome and for allowing us to film and photograph the service.
Before any baptism, we speak with the child’s parents to work out the plan of photography for the day. We make sure to have a list of all the photographs we need to take so that this happy day is preserved not only for the child and their parents but also their grandparents, Godparents and other people who are important in their life. Capturing children requires a photographer to be flexible and to adapt to any sudden changes in a child’s mood or behaviour. Thankfully, the sun shone and Victoria was relaxed and happy the entire time, making it easy to get lots of lovely photos of this beautiful young family.
After her St Sophia London christening, Victoria and her doting family celebrated by walking to Aubaine Notting Hill for lunch and plenty of delicious cakes.
