I was so incredibly happy to photograph baby Joro's baptism this Sunday, and I love how the photos turned out. The church "Света Богородица" (St. Mary) in Haskovo, built in 1837, is absolutely beautiful and made an excellent backdrop to the event with its ornate icons and woodcuts, gorgeous chandeliers and lit candles. But most of all, it was the smiling faces of everyone present, including baby Joro's, that made the atmosphere really special and festive. Some of my favorite photos are the one with the grandma holding the baby's hand, as well as the whole series where the priest dips baby Joro in the water!
I am really happy that I got to shoot in a church, too, since it will be great practice for (hopefully) shooting weddings in the future. I love that I had time to shoot some of the details of the place, like the water fountain outside, the side doors, or the candles.
