What a joyful celebration of friends, family, and my sweet Jonah’s First Holy Communion. We were so blessed to have Father Shea officiate the Mass at Saint Peter’s Catholic Church in Uptown Charlotte.  We are so very thankful to be a part of such a beautiful Jesuit Community.

This boy.  This sweet artistic thoughtful eight year old boy.  My middle son.  The one who always wants an extra snuggle.  The one who is bigger than all the other kids his age, yet has the most gentle of souls.  Those big brown eyes melt my heart.  He is a stinker, that’s for sure.  But he is my stinker ~ and knows exactly how to work his way right back into my good graces, no matter what mischief he gets into 😉

We arrived at the church a little early ~ just he and I ~ and I absolutely loved spending that time with him.  We took photos around the church and the garden.  Such a beautiful little setting.  So peaceful early on a quiet Saturday morning.  Thanks for letting me share a little peek into our special day with you…

We Love Father Shea!  He saw us taking photos in the garden and climbed through the flower bed to come take a photo with us.  He is such a dear sweet soul ~ we are so blessed to call him Pastor1st Communion,2nd Grade,Bow Tie,CLT,Catholic,Charlotte,Charlotte Child Photographer,Charlotte Family Photographer,Charlotte Maternity Photographer,Charlotte Newborn Photographer,Charlotte Underwater Photographer,Family,Fresh 48,Jesuit,Lifestyle,Lifestyle Photographer,North Carolina,Portrait Artist,Portrait Photographer,Providence Day School,Renee Stengel Photography,Saint Peter's,St. Peter's,UW,Underwater Kids,Underwater Photographer,Yellow Bow Tie,Thanks Suarez Bakery!  You never disappoint!!  Jonah (and his brothers!!) loved his Vanilla Diplomat cake ~ one of our favorites!
