Mid December marks one of my regular dates; the Hitchin Christian Centre Nativity shoot. This is firm favourite event for me and as Matt Summerfield (the senior Pastor of Hitchin Christian Centre) said is now a “Christmas Tradition!”. Each year the Christian Centre runs a series of nativity services to celebrate the Christmas story, however this year their plans to host the event in the grounds of Hitchin Priory had to be cancelled at the very last-minute, and so the service was moved back into their Church on Bedford Road. Fortunately I was able to accommodate the change of date and venue, and organised a straight-forward portrait shoot for them.
One of my regular annual shoots is the nativity celebration at Hitchin Christian Centre (click to see the nativity photos from 2013 and 2014), however a few weeks ago they asked me if I’d be able to cover another event for them in April. This time they’d planned a family fun day to take place in the market square in Hitchin.
One of the things that marks the start of Christmas for me is my regular trip to help out with the Hitchin Christian Centre’s Nativity celebration. This year the theme of the services is “The Big Celebration”, and as in previous years I was asked to run a fun photo shoot for the congregation to remember the day.
“The Gift” is the Hitchin Christian Centre’s Nativity celebration for 2013. Each year the Church runs series of 3 Nativity services I was asked to come along for a fun photo shoot after the service.
