On the Tembreull side of the family, Claire is number 16 of 18 of the grandchildren (I'm number 12!). I met up with my dear cousin just a couple weeks ago at her family's home in Gladstone for her senior portraits... which is surreal, because "little cousins" are supposed to stay little forever, right? We began in her wooded driveway on the bluffs, and made our way around Gladstone Beach, downtown Escanaba, and back to the bluffs for golden hour.
Claire is a lifeguard on Lake Michigan in Gladstone, so we naturally swung by her wooden throne and splashed in the waters she watches over ;)
As a violinist, Claire brought her bow and strings along.
As a fellow previous violinist, I must make the disclaimer for the images below that the violin was indeed safe and no unnecessary plunges into Lake Michigan were made for the sake of the photo ;)
XO, Claire! I love you and your beautiful smile!
