Baptism photography – Baptism in Greece
Mihalis and I met a few years back, when I was called to photograph their first child. Him and his wife Tonia soon had a second child and I was there too. Last July, while on holidays, I was privileged to photograph yet one more – their third child’s baptism. In the same favourite church of mine, where I got married some 9 years ago. “Profitis Ilias”(Thoriko) is built on top of a hill, surrounded by the Aegean sea, and it is always windy. Sometimes, very windy. As you can see in the photos below, this was the very windy occasion!
Filled with wonderful memories and emotions, and being extremely relaxed since I was officially on holidays, I photographed all that I could so that years later, they will relive the memory. Isn’t this the mission of a documentary photography?
