She turned nine this past Friday. Nine.
She has grown up in front of my camera being a guinea pig for many ideas. She slept like a dream as a newborn and that allowed me to photograph her everywhere in her first month. She has a fire in her that you want to capture. She keeps me on the move and the sessions with Claire have taught me to go with the flow and just move with her. She has taught me how to be a better photographer because kids do not stay still nor should they.
This was her nine year shoot. These poses and set ups were her ideas. I just supplied the random field and chair. The rest she did and I just snapped away. I think we managed to capture her sweet and kind personality while also showing the silly and fiery side to Miss Claire.
She currently loves any type of gummies, Barbies, going fast on scooters and her iPad of course.
