I have been capturing Confirmadi receiving their sacrament for over 30 years. I have a few suggestions to insure your image will be a wonderful memory.
1) Step up to arms length from the Bishop. Too close will result in an image too cramped, too far back and the Bishop has a hard time reaching you. (Image 1)
2) Wear your hair pulled back so I can see your face in this profile picture. (Image 2)
3) If you have bangs, do not lift your hair for the Bishop, He will push your bangs aside. (Image 3)
4) Ask your sponsor to stand far enough behind you that I can see their face as well. (Image 4)
Finally, Stand Tall, Head Up and Be Proud!
You worked hard to have the honor to receive this special sacrament.
We have spent the last 37 years in the photography business. Our business classifications are Portraiture and Event. Many know us for our portraiture of children and families. Many more know us from our up-scale preschool business, Catholic events, dance schools, and sports. Taking our 30+years of event experience and combining it with our 37 years of family portrait experience, Church Directories is a great match for us. We offer Mandarin and local area churches the convenience of sending their congregation directly to our studio saving the church man power and resources. Our product is unmatched by large directory companies and our value is substantial. Give us a call today to discuss your church's directory needs and see if why we are the perfect fit for your next book.
We are very excited to be invited to capture the beautiful young people of Debbie's Dance Company in Mandarin wearing their Dance Costumes.
