Penelope’s Baby Blessing and First Birthday

Last Sunday, I had the honor of documenting darling Penelope’s Baby Blessing Ceremony and her first birthday celebration at the Waldorf Astoria. I have only witnessed a few Baby Blessings, but I have to say, that ceremony is so very special. I am always relieved when I have a camera to hide behind because my eyes are never dry…the sentiment is just so overwhelmingly meaningful. Penelope’s big day was especially touching, with so many close friends and family members present. Her parents did such a lovely job of making the day all about their youngest sweetheart, and her siblings rallied around her with pride and love. Aaron, Nichole, Bella, Jack, Oliver and Penelope…congratulations on such a terrific event in your family’s history. It was wonderful to meet you five and such a pleasure to be a part of it all.
