Happy Birthday to Claire!

Best birthday wishes to Miss Claire, who turned 3 on Easter Sunday. I don't know who had more fun at her birthday shoot, Claire or me. She makes me want to be a little girl again...

We started out taking photos in and around her room. Claire was dressed in a beautiful pink confection, perfect for all of her girlie adventures.

Meet the birthday girl:

Oh to be a little girl with dreams of becoming a ballerina or a princess...

And for as much as Claire is a little lady, she can wrench with the best of them! Amongst the tea sets, dolls and dress up clothes was a little truck, complete with tool kit. And Claire wasn't afraid to use her power tools! This is a girl after my own heart...
After some playtime upstairs, we had a wardrobe change and headed outdoors to a beautiful park across the street. Claire wasted no time running around the green grass in her beautiful birthday/Easter dress. How could you not have fun out here?

We spent some time photographing at a spot that has very special meaning for Claire's family. It is the spot that their beloved dog, Taka, used to spend a lot of time. Claire found some leaves to play with and then showed me her sweet little smile.
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday sweet Claire
