This sweet little blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty holds a special place in my heart! If you’ve followed my blog for a number of years, I’m sure you’ll recognize her adorable smile and sheer joy! For the past 7 years, I’ve had the honor of documenting her milestones, birthday parties, and blossoming personality from behind my camera! I first met her parents, Heather and Brian, for their gorgeous maternity session, as we explored the beautiful gardens at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, one of their favorite places to visit. It has been such an tremendous joy and privilege to share so many special moments with this family! Heather and Brian adore their sweet daughter, who happens to be quite an artist! I’ve seen some of her work, and I was blown away by her talent! Emily loves nature, music and theatre, animals, science, fashion, and brought along her favorite doll, Willa. Like I said, she is just full of individuality, personality, confidence, and compassion, and I’m so lucky to know her and her family! Emily Claire, thank you for sharing your afternoon with me! You continue to amaze me with your sweet disposition and passion for life and knowledge – I know your Mom and Dad are so very proud of you!!! You are a gem! Can’t wait to see you all again! And now for some of my favorites from this birthday girl’s wonderfully fun and colorful session!
