First Communion | Mishawaka, IN

Jen wanted picture proof that her son was reaching such an important milestone this spring. His first communion is in May at St. Joe Catholic Church, downtown Mishawaka. Jen was inspired to hire a portrait photographer because her mother-in-law still has photos on the walls from when her husband and siblings received their first communion. She was hopeful for a similar keepsake portrait. Absolutely, can do!

Leo is an outgoing, energetic, fun loving 2nd grader who loves Legos, reading, and being outside. Eleanor is his little sister, and she got all dolled up for some pictures, too! (Why not?!) Eleanor is sweet, kind, thoughtful and loves all things girly! As if you couldn’t tell by her dress!


This family loves going to the beach, watching movies at home with popcorn, playing at the local parks and walking through the woods. Mom wanted to remember how sweet they can be to each other at this stage of life, and I think we succeeded. They even spontaneously started dancing. I kid you not! I felt like I was at an outdoor sidewalk wedding, the way he was twirling her around outside the church!


Thank you, Jen & family and congrats Mr. Leo!
