I photographed Isabelle  for her First Holy Communion at St Isidore’s Catholic Church in Danville. She looks absolutely beautiful. I have been photographing Isabelle and her family for last 5 years and when I saw her in the dress, it brought me to tears, she has grown up so much! I really enjoyed creating these beautiful first Holy Communion Portraits for Isabelle!
