It’s hard for me to believe that this girl is a whole year old. It’s been a beautiful trip for me to photograph her first year of life, and every minute spent with her family has been nothing short of wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about these beautiful people and the love they have as a family. They have encouraged me so much as a photographer and trusted me with the important job of documenting moments of their first year with Carson, and I’ve valued every bit of it. To celebrate turning a year old, we did it up right with a cupcake from SWEET THEMES bakery in Kent, followed up by some good old fashion duck watching. My favorite part might have been the over-the-top kisses that Carson was giving her mama at the end. Check out these (belated) photos of the birthday girl.
