Communion portraits in the New York City area created by Beth Capuano Photography, West Nyack NY. Your child's First Holy Communion is a milestone for your family and is one of the most important times for your family to have professional photos.
I remember looking through the box of family photos in my childhood home in Peekskill, NY. I was amazed to see an old black and white photo of my dad as a communion boy. He was dressed in what could only be described as finery. So proud and poised in his communion portrait. Having seen this, I feverishly searched for the communion picture of my mom. But, sadly, it was not to be found. I think it just doesn't exist because it was never made. I felt sad for her but soon realized I was mostly sad for me. I would never see what my mom looked like on her communion day. I could never see the rosaries she carried, the lace of her dress, her little prayer book. Years later I had a similar experience sitting with my mother in law in her condo in Valley Cottage,
