Alexander was Baptized at St. Stephen’s Byzantine Catholic Church in North Huntingdon, PA on April 14, 2013. Alexander is his family’s third child and first boy! All 3 babies were Baptized at St. Stephen’s by Rev. James D. Hess. Alexander wore a Christening gown worn by his Great-Gramma and her three siblings, her three children, six grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. It has been worn by family members for almost 100 years! The morning was gorgeous with nothing but blue skies. The church is so beautiful and has so many amazing details as you will see below. I love photographing these kinds of events! It is such a joyous occasion and such a blessing to be able to capture every moment for the family to enjoy for years to come! Enjoy!
I am in awe of this beautiful & delicate 100 year old Christening gown.

How perfect is this family!!! 🙂
Tradition in this family is to place the baby under the dining room table – and he or she will become a great dancer! (You might have to be involved with the Tamburitzans to understand)
Cheers to Alexander!
