Baptism Pictures

This is more of the work of my amazing sister-in-law.  My oldest was baptized a few weeks ago and got his first suit.  He is not into having his picture taken and gets a real attitude about the whole thing.  I didn't want his memories of his baptism to be awful because I MADE him have his picture taken, but I wanted some nice pictures so that both he and I could remember him at that point.  My sister-in-law was the perfect solution.  The baptism was at 10:00 a.m. on a Saturday.  Immediately after it was over, she and my brother drove him to the park between our house and the church.  He was all dressed up in his new suit and feeling great.  They drive a jeep, so all the kids love to go anywhere in their car.  They spent maybe 20 minutes at the park so Amy could snap some pictures and then met us back at our house for a family lunch, where Blake immediately took off his suit and was completely absorbed in playing with his cousins.  I am amazed at what Amy was able to capture in a few short minutes.  I am thrilled that I will always have these pictures of him immediately after he was baptized.  Thanks Amy!  I'm so glad you decided to take up photography!  Like I said before, you need to visit her website.  She's amazing!
