I’ve known this next sweetheart since she was a newborn. Actually, I met her parents when they were anxiously awaiting her arrival in July just two years ago. Emily Claire has become the light of her parents’ lives, as well as the rest of their family, and it’s so easy to see why. This blue-eyed, fair-haired beauty is sweet as can be. I always look forward to our time together. At our most recent session, just a few weeks after capturing her 2nd birthday party with close family, she sang the latest songs from Adele and Katy Perry as admired colorful blooms and played in her backyard on a sunny summer morning. It was a ton of fun, and I can’t believe I’m the lucky one chosen to capture these special moments! To see more from this adorable family, click here, here, here, here, and here. Friends and family can view the entire online gallery here. And now for some of my favorites from Emily Claire’s amazing Minnie Mouse boutique themed birthday celebration and her portrait session! Happy 2nd Birthday, Emily!!!
