First Communion Photography by Deb McCarthy Photography

Hi Everyone,

There's snow on the ground (YUCK) but it's the beginning of April and I can't wait to see the flowers (tulips are my fave) and the cherry blossom trees and the gorgeous green color everywhere.  So many wonderful occasions take place during the Spring - weddings, graduations, recitals, Mother's Day and First Holy Communions!  My family and I have a HUGE reason to celebrate next month - my daughter is graduating from college and we could not be more proud!  

DMP is now booking First Communion Portraits and I'm offering several package options to capture this special day.  For rate and package information click here and please check out my brand spanking new communion portfolio.  I'd love to hear what you think so please feel free to comment or drop me a line.  All communion sessions are booked at a beautiful outdoor location. 

For some gorgeous Communion inspiration I've put together this Pinterest board.  You'll find ideas for adorable party favors, fabulous dresses, veils and hair styles, beautiful accessories and gorgeous cakes. 

I've included a list of some of my favorite vendors to help you get ready for this blessed event in your child's life!

Communion Dresses/Suits:

The Nutshell, Milton This is where I bought my daughter's communion dress 14 years ago.

Prospect Hill, Brockton In addition to dresses and suits, they also carry religious gifts.

Nordstrom, Braintree  I'm assuming everyone knows there's a Nordstrom at the South Shore Plaza but I did not know they carry communion dresses.  Good to know, right?


Roots, Southie  Kerry and Janine do a fabulous job.  Book early because these girls are busy.

The Beauty Bar  Dyan LaRosa and her talented staff offer many different beauty services that will have you looking gorgeous. 


Sweet Tooth Boston  I always trust Glenn to make the most beautiful and delicious cakes for our celebrations.

Baked Good.  Jen Jacoby does an awesome job with her cupcakes and cake pops.  The kids love them!


Kathleen of Boston  Kathy is a friend of mine and has made many gorgeous arrangements for my parties very reasonably priced.  She also makes chocolates (handmade) that are pretty much to die for!

Of Spring and Summer  I came across this fabulous blog featuring DIY flower arrangements.  If you are a DIY kind of gal/guy - check it out!


Yours Truly (Haha)

I hope you find this blog helpful and don't forget spring is also a great time to book your family, kids or senior sessions.
