Turning One || Pacific Northwest Family Portrait Photographer

Every time I do a one year portrait session I think of the new Nicole Nordeman song, Slow Down and also about my little one who is now 7. It goes by soooo quickly, and I am so grateful to freeze precious moments like these for parents.

I know for me, I find myself stopping and pausing in front of the portraits I have taken of our daughter. Looking at how much she has changed from one year to the next and I can't help but whisper, "slow down."

As parents, we often long for a full nights sleep, a clean house, maybe even a shower for that day... :) When in reality, these days of toys strewn around and finger prints on the windows will be so fleeting. 

So to parents, slow down, breathe, and just enjoy. 

Here's a little sneak peek from this sweet family and one year portrait session. Enjoy!
