Beaumont Baby Dedication | Waylan

It was a beautiful day for a wedding!

Umm… a baby dedication! 🙂

This past year I made the decision to focus totally on wedding and wedding-related (engagements, bridals and trash-the-dress) events, really wanting to master what many consider a “niche” area in photography… that is until Scarlett brought little Waylan by and requested my documenting his dedication.

How can you pass up his cute chubby cheeks? 🙂

It was a beautiful day for a baby dedication! Calder Baptist Church in Beaumont is a gorgeous church here in the Oaks Historic District.

We began early with some family portraits, including a few of Scarlett with Waylan and beautiful natural light streaming through the windows. From there the church service began – Pastor Fuller brought the family up front, gave Waylan the grand tour (introducing him to all the families who will have a profound effect on his life), blessed the baby and prayed with the family. We can all use reminding of how much responsibility we have with our precious little ones.

Even big brother got to take part and pray for Waylan. It was a beautiful service. 🙂

From there we made our way over to the Beaumont Country Club where a reception awaited Waylan and all his fans on the porch. He dozed off and on but appeared to have a great time! 🙂

The one where the pastor is holding the baby up reminds me of that scene from the Lion King =)
