Maggie's Baptism

We had a moment to chat and catch up with each other after a busy day of celebration. I found myself holding back tears as Rebecca tried to express in words the love she has for her daughter, Maggie. Rebecca's capacity to love has always been profound. But this love for her daughter, this love is so intense that words could never describe its depth. Yet still, I understood... in the way that Rebecca held her baby girl so gently, in the day that had been planned so perfectly, in the quiet moments shared between mother and daughter.

Rebecca came into my life as I was planning my wedding in 2008. Her helpful and caring personality resonated with me and I trusted her the moment I met her. She and her mom, Maryanne, soon became my day-of coordinators and their support, warmth, and optimism meant the world to me. So when Rebecca contacted me recently to ask me to photograph her daughter's baptism, I was over the moon.

Maggie's baptism was an intimate event with some of Rebecca and Mike's closest family and friends. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day and the reception that followed at Rebecca and Mike's home was filled with conversation, food, and laughter.

Before we turn our focus back to the star of the show - beautiful baby Maggie - I want to share a few of my favourite photographs of Rebecca and Mike's family and friends.

Maggie is truly a delight. This 3 month old little girl makes the cutest facial expressions and is such a good baby. I think she slept through the baptism and I never heard her cry throughout the entire day. Maggie was absolutely precious in her delicate lace dress... which was even more special because it was made from Rebecca's own wedding gown.

I am super excited to share the slideshow of Maggie's baptism. I hope you enjoy the photographs. Much love, Lesley.
