The day I photographed this baptism was simple perfect in every way. The family and the little star of the day could not be more sweet and easy to work with. The day was spectacular and the whole day was a 10.
I was usually commuting from Uppsala, the town I was living to the capital, Stockholm for photo sessions and events and I was going with lots of time in advance first because I like to scout the location, the light conditions and the place physically to plan shots, and second because I hate feeling stressed. The simple thought of the possibility of being a minute late or getting lost with my null sense of orientation gives me really hard time, so alike my mother, I prefer to be a “cateta” and be 1 hour before and wait, than risking not being on time.
Well, that day was making a year since Sweden had won Eurovision, so that night was Eurovision happening in town, Stockholm, and the vibes in town could not be more happy. The city hall had also had the genial idea of making all the traffic lights of the street play classic Eurovision songs, and well, so I had to show my appreciation of course, and improvise some discreet dances in the street in every traffic light on my way.
That day was also so shinny, and was as promising as it turned out to be!
Once in the church, first arrived the grandpas from every side dressing in their swedish folk dresses, and then the parents with their daughter and one of the cutest babies I have ever seen. Then came aunts, cousins, friends and more family and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful.
