On being a godmother

In the Philippines, it is well known that religion is important to us. And every religion has baptism, and earlier today I got to be one of the godmothers for a family friend. It was honestly my first time to become a godmother, but since I saw the little angel, I couldn’t say no!

World, meet Maria Divina Lacambra
Minutes before the mass started, I began taking pictures of her, the parents and the other godparents. 

With her parents and godparents

 During the mass, I couldn’t help but steal glances at the little girl. She’s only four months old yet she’s ready to empower  the world with her cuteness! When the ceremony started, the little girl was asleep! Here she was, about to be welcomed into the Christian world and she was sleeping. How cute.

She was then baptized by water, and she merely stirred in her sleep as the water was poured on her head.

 When the ceremony was done, she was became a Christian! (insert loud applause here) We then proceeded to their house, where they prepared a little feast in celebration of the new addition to the religion.

This picture took me a long time to take because she’s so moody! Good thing I captured this smile.

I think that being a godmother means that you have to be a good influence, and I take full responsibility on that. I just hope I fit the role! I’m still seventeen afterall. By the time she’s ten, i’d be twenty seven!  We’d be like sisters 😀
She’s a bit grumpy here, getting tired of being passed from one person to the other!
Being the photographer for the day, I was rarely in the pictures! So I stealthily took a selfie. (Insert evil laugh here)
