Christening Photography by Sirastudio, Professional Photographers in Harrogate


On Sunday 27th February, I took the photos at Alisha’s christening at St Mark’s Church, Harrogate for Alisha’s mum Stacey and dad Andy. With a request for no flash photography inside the church during the service, and with low ambient light from the gloomy Yorkshire weather, I was pleased that my Nikon D3s had the capability of taking amazingly sharp, low grain photographs at an ISO of 1600 to 2000, hand-held. This made for some very touching close ups in addition to the set up shots we did after the service  at the font, outside the church, and the reportage photography of the guests afterwards at The Mile Post, where we all enjoyed a fine buffet (thanks Stacey!)

Can’t believe how much Alisha’s grown since I took her newborn photos only 4 months ago! She was a week old when her mum and nana first brought her round for studio portraits.

Soon we are going to be adding a new page to our website – devoted to mums, bumps and babes. How lovely it is to record with photography the different stages of pregnancy, the first, sleepy encounter of the world and then progress onto baptisms, sitting, walking and yes, even jumping (although that does come a lot later!) Keep checking the portrait photography section of our website, and of course our blog…
