THE BABY ATTENTION by THE BAPTISM PHOTOGRAPHER 

Baby girl points her finger at the priest's hand, during the baptism with the godparents, in a moment captured by the baptism photographer in Lisbon.

Sometimes, when baptism photographer, I find myself giving too much attention to the baby. From time to time, my more attentive side notices that and I redirect my attention to who, also, deserves to be in the memory of that child when, one day, he will look with more attention to the result of my work.

But the main attention of the baptism photographer makes sense, not because I feel that the others have no importance. A child, and the smaller the more it happens, is very fast-changing expressions, mood, body positions, etc. Because I know that I need to have, in the end, that charm from the babies, I must profit from all those moments in photos.

It is true that I never can guess what is next movement of the child, and, because of that, it is safer not to overlook their attention on her, especially in the most important moments, such as the baptism itself, the main reason because I am there, and all around that child. Until now, the baptism photographer has been right about that.
