Maxime’s Baby Christening in France

While visiting in France this summer, I was privileged with the opportunity to capture an special time in my cousin Maxime’s life.  Maxime was christened in Bretagne at one of the local Catholic churches and I was so excited that the family asked me to take photographs at the ceremony.  This was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and while I probably only understood 10 words during the whole ceremony, it was so moving and so unique!

After the christening, we all gathered at Maxime’s grandfathers home for a traditional Bretagne family meal/party with fun music and dancing!
