It’s February! Which means that Emily is the cover of this month in the 2015 Down Syndrome Guild Calendar. Emily was my very first shoot for the 2015 calendar and she totally started this journey off right. Emily loves Frozen, singing, laughing and just enjoying life.


While we waited for Big Al and J-Si from the Kidd Kraddick morning show to finish a recording Emily got a glimpse of J-Si and started calling him Elmo. Her mom quickly informed us that while prepping Emily about meeting Big Al and J-Si, Emily saw a video of J-Si talking like Elmo, so naturally he became Elmo to her.


We had a great time during the shoot. Emily sang “Let it Go” for us, then she did her best job at imitating J-Si’s Elmo voice and she absolutely loved being recorded and then hearing the playback.


She was such a joy to photograph.
