Baptism Pictures

Here are a few portraits I took of CC in her baptismal gown(s).

This one is the gown she wore for the ceremony.  It is from MJ's mother's family, and is over 100 years old.  MJ wore it, as did his brother and mother, and all the way back to his great-grandfather.  More recently, CC's cousins Anna and Abby wore it. 

This crocheted gown and bonnet is what I wore at my baptism.  My godmother, my Auntie Arline, made it when my older brother was born, and it was worn by all three of us when we were baptized.  Just last week, CC's cousin Dane wore it for his baptism.  CC didn't wear it for her ceremony, but she wore it later and I think it was incredibly precious on her.  Especially that bonnet!
