Why have ceremonies for Families and Kids?

As a celebrant, I perform many kinds of ceremonies for families and children, including baby namings and welcomings, ceremonies for adoptive families, coming of age celebrations for adolescents and ceremonies marking birthdays, graduations, family reunions and more.

Welcoming ceremonies for new family members, whether by birth, adoption or marriage, have existed in virtually every culture and country. It’s perhaps one of the most joyous celebrations we can share. And acknowledging our responsibilities to our children is one of the most serious commitments we can undertake.

Ceremonies provide signposts for our lives. I’ll gladly help you in celebrating life’s milestones, so you and your loved ones can honors your past, shape your present, and mold your future.
