Find out how we can help you create images you will treasure for life.
Our vision is to create christening photos that tell the story of your child's christening day: from proud godparents watching the service through to the celebration at the reception. We carefully capture all the details, we watch for those fleeting unseen moments, and we carefully document the feeling and emotion of the day. From the ornate christening gown, to the themed bonbonniere, to the multi-tiered cake, we'll record it all.
We've worked with studios all over the world so we bring a unique perspective to the documentation of your day. You will receive photos that you'll want to hang on your walls, share with family and friends, and print for grandparents.
We'd love to hear about your wonderful plans! Please contact us or give us a call on 0434 934 766.
We are Nick and Lindsey Stewart of Skipping Stone Photography and we are christening photographers based in Drummoyne, in the Inner West area of Sydney, NSW. We are known for capturing the real, candid moments that occur at christenings and baptisms, as well as showcasing the beautiful churches and reception venues that Sydney has to offer. If you are looking for a unique, thoughtful and professional photographer, who will offer excellent customer service and truly timeless images, then Skipping Stone Photography is the right choice for you. We have photographed many christenings since our business began in 2007.
We are very familiar with Greek orthodox christenings, Armenian christenings, Serbian Orthodox christenings, Maronite christenings and Coptic Orthodox christenings, as well as baptisms from various christian faiths. We are also knowledgable about the various churches in Sydney and the surrounding area - some of our favourite churches include St. Gerasimos Greek Orthodox Church in Leichhardt, St Mary & St Merkorious Coptic Orthodox Church and Kogarah Greek Orthodox Church. They offer beautiful, ornate interiors that photograph wonderfully, and add a sense of grandeur to the service.
Your experience with us will begin with a thorough discussion of your christening photography needs. We’ll offer suggestions to help guide you through where and when to take your family photographs, and make sure all of the details at the reception are captured. We also make sure to take you aside, away from the business of the day, to take photographs of you, your partner and your baby alone, like a little family photography session. Through our experience we are able to create beautifully lit images of your child’s special day, including detailed photos of their christening gown, gifts, christening bomboniere unique elements of the church, and service. Through the years we have also met many of the priests and have built relationships with them, allowing us more photographic freedom during the christening or baptism service.
This is a big event in your child’s life (and yours) and we aim to help make it special, to preserve the memories of their christening day for many years to come.
Through the years we have also shot at many christening reception venues in Sydney. There are so many beautiful places to choose from, but in particular we enjoy Oliveto in Rhodes, Dunbar House in Watson’s Bay, Le Montage in Lilyfield, Centennial Homestead in Centennial Park, Sergeants Mess in Mosman, Waterview in Bicentennial Park, and Doltone House in Sylvania.
Serving all areas of greater Sydney, including the Inner West, West, Northern Beaches, North Shore, Southerland Shire and Eastern Suburbs. We often travel all over Sydney to photograph christenings, baptisms and other events. We love the diversity that Sydney offers, as well as the many churches and event venues to explore. Each one offers a new challenge and interesting details to help make your child’s christening unique!
