St. Mary's First Communion Portraits

Everything you need to know


Classic Portriat

There will be two backdrops for the portraits of your children. The first will be a classic black. This look is timeless and really accentuates your beautiful child.

Outdoor portrait

The second backdrop will be outdoors (weather permitting) in the courtyard in front of the Mary statue. This is a lovely way to honor your child's commitment to GOD and give you some variety in their portraits. 


The Service

I will also be at the service where your child receives their first communion. I will take images during the service as well as after the service with any family members you would like to include. 


Meet Your Photographer

Hi! My name is Michelle Burns and I am a lifestyle photographer specializing in maternity, newborns, and families. My family and I are members of St. Mary's and our oldest two children are enrolled in the school. Our third child is two years old and we have a fourth due in July!

I am always available to chat if you have any questions about this process. I love capturing your child's personalities in their portraits and I look forward to meeting you!
