Spring time is the time for first Communions and Confirmations and our staff at Gerlidne Photography specializes in capturing this sacred moment.

Communion is a sacrament that is usually received in the second grade, after receiving First Reconciliation. Children must be in at least their second year of Religious Education in order to prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Communion. Children and parents go through a formation process prior to receiving the sacrament.

Confirmation is only to be received after the child makes the decision to be confirmed.  This can happen any time in eighth grade or high school.

In most cases, our staff will be present on the day of the Communion or Confirmation service, fully equipped to capture the perfect photo. Prior to this date, the church will notify families that we will be taking photos and provide a flier with package prices and options.

If you are not able to take advantage of getting your child’s photo taken the day of, you can schedule a make-up appointment in our studio. For families who prefer a more private and creative session, a full portrait session is available for our standard minimum portrait session price.

For First Communion and Confirmation package photo questions, please email Melissa Carromero at melissa@gerlinde.com. For full portrait session questions, please call our main studio line (954) 961-4450.
