One Year Photos || Andover, MN

It happened again.

Another newborn turned one year old.

Watching a brand new baby grow into a spunky little toddler continues to fill me with awe. Photographing a sweet child every three months during this season of rapid development remains a privilege.  Oh, if only they would slow it down.

Alas, we photograph each little milestone, making mental notes for their first tooth, first step, and first taste of solid food.  These newborns turned toddlers capture us all with every simple thing they do. They remind us that every simple thing we do really is miraculous. 

I had the joy of returning to Andover, MN every few months to watch this doll grow.  Thank you, to her lovely parents, for inviting me to photograph this season of their life.
