This darling, precious gift of a girl, turned two years old this past week. Her parents asked me to snap photos of her big birthday party on Saturday and I was honored.
Life has been tough for little Claire, who has amazing challenges to face almost every day. But look at that smile. Oh my…how can you not get a warm, fuzzy feeling deep down inside and smile back at her?
I’m still editing the photos from the little shoot we did Monday night, but I can’t get far before the desire to post a few of them gets the better of me. Both of these kids were too cute for words and an absolute blast to work with.
In the shot above, you can see it’s a black and white except for the eyes. That’s not fake color there, I just allowed the blue from the color version of this photo to remain while the rest went B&W. Such amazingly blue eyes!
And how cute is Rhiannon? She loves getting her picture taken, so she stood in this spot throwing me a bunch of funny little poses. Love this one below, in her brand new dress.

These are some of my favorite shots from a little photoshoot I did with Wyatt and Rachel on Tuesday night. The little guy was just four days old and the parents wanted some pictures of him, plus a few together with his big sister Rachel for some birth announcements.
We got the full spectrum of Wyatt…some super-sleepy to kind of wide-awake…he did such a great job. Of course, when you are that little and the goofy camera guy asks mom and dad to pose you in a certain spot…you are pretty much stuck that way *grin*
Although, little Wyatt actually almost rolled over onto his back a few times, so this guy might be ready for training wheels soon!
Rachel was a sweetheart and obviously already loves having a little brother. Must be such a weird, cool thing for a little kid to suddenly meet their new baby brother/sister…who knows what goes through their heads right?
This was my first official shoot indoors and I have to say I seriously love my Canon 50mm 1.4 lens…that thing is a miracle worker.
(this shot below was just an idea I sent them on how they could take two of the photos and put them into separate frames, but place them side by side on the way. I am no interior decorator, so cut me some slack, I just thought it was kind of cool)
