Hunter - First Communion Portrait Photography - Chapel Hill, NC

Earlier this year I got to capture some portraits of a fun & sweet boy and his family as he was about to celebrate his first communion - meet Hunter! … We met at their church, the Catholic Community of St. Thomas More, and I was so thankful to see allll the beautiful natural light that their sanctuary has! I also love how little time it took for Hunter’s fun personality to start shining through. :) Gotta have some funny faces mixed in with the serious ones for Mom!
