During our birthday glitter session with Evie, a Chronicle reporter stopped by our studio as they were doing a Hidden Gems piece on Mill No. 5. I was, of course, not prepared to be on the other side of the camera but thrilled we were photographing our own kiddo showing off all her awesome. If you have yet to check out Mill. No. 5, I highly recommend it. We have a great cafe, independent theater, yoga studio, record shop, my very own {ok not just my own} cheesemonger, a 50’s style soda fountain, plus many other amazing shops run by equally amazing humans.

Beautiful little Sophia and her family celebrated her baptism at the gorgeous St. Spyridon Cathedral in Worcester, MA. The reception was held at Cyprian Keyes in West Boylston. Her mother, Stella, did an AMAZING job on the tea party theme with a full pink candy bar and teapot centerpieces. A perfect party for a perfect little girl. Congratulations Sophia, I’m excited to see where this world takes you.

Last Sunday [June 12th] we hosted our daughter Evie’s 5th birthday party in our photography studio. I have been planning her first ‘Big 5’ party since I found out I was having a girl. Originally we were going to have it out at the stables she’s spent so much time at other the last few years, however, with the newly developed horse hair allergy that wasn’t an option. She’s very into tea parties and Alice in Wonderland right now, so we figured that was the perfect theme. Many of the other partners at Mill No. 5, which is home to our studio, graciously chipped in to lend props and help style. A huge thanks to Chhavy over at Style this Shindig for bringing my vision come to life. If you are considering a styled event please consider her, she is nothing short of amazing. While I don’t have photos of her actual party, I hired another photographer so I could play host and be a mom for the actual event, here are some pre-party photos we took before the guests arrived.

Little Sofia, was baptized in a beautiful ceremony brought together by her wonderful family and friends. The ceremony was at Holy Trinity Hellenic Orthodox Church in Lowell, MA and the reception was held at Lenzi’s Catering in Dracut, MA. One thing I love to photograph more than anything in deep family tradition. Having family come from all over in one place to celebrate life and faith. It was the reason I became a wedding photographer and now family special event photographer. Thank you Grillakis family for sharing Sofia’s special day with me.

With my background in journalism, I jump at the opportunity to document family events with deep roots in traditions. A baptism is no exception. It fills my heart when a huge extended family comes together to stand by and bless a young child. Vowing to help guide her soul so she can one day repeat these traditions one day with her own. Living in Lowell, MA we have a large and strong Greek community and I am blessed to be brought in to be a part of it. The church Holy Trinity Hellenic Orthodox Church is one of the most beautiful sacred places I have been invited into.

first birthday party photography

How adorable is this Monster’s Inc. themed first birthday costume party. Not sure there could have been a better looking boo and Ms. Uma. No detail was overlooked and the families couldn’t have been sweeter.
