Mia’s Christening

A Christening and a favour, Basingstoke, Hampshire

So this is a short story about how I came to shoot a Christening… 

I have a few friends that have been with me since childhood. These are the guys that will always be there for me and visa versa. Jools is one of these guys; mates forever. So when he asked me to photograph his daughter’s Christening; Of course I said yes. 

I’ve obviously known Mia since birth. From nappies to nursery to school. ‘Hasn’t she grown’. She is now eight years old and attends this particular church with her grandmother. Jools’s mum, Eve is not just the poor suffering lady who had to deal with us all as teenagers *shudders*. She is also the Church Warden at All Saints Church in Basingstoke. So when Mia looked up and asked to be Christened. Eve was in prime position to make it happen. Quite the service to behold and a great friendly family atmosphere. If Carlsberg did Christenings…
