Introducing the beautiful Maryrose. I may be partial since she is my Goddaughter…but isn’t she adorable?! She was just 5 days new when she came to the studio – on her due date of New Year’s Day. How special is that?! Maryrose’s name has a lot of significance and meaning behind it to her Catholic parents. Maryrose was due on the Mary, Mother of God’s feast day – hence the name Mary. Her middle name, Clare, means shining light – which was chosen because of her birth during the Christmas season. Because of the significance and importance of Mary to this family, I decided during the session to do an image of Maryrose representing Mary, Mother of God – here she is with many of the same symbols you will find in images of Our Lady of Fatima – the 12 stars crown her head, the roses at her feet, the color blue, and the crown – all symbols of Mary.
