When the stars align and a family photography session can be timed with beautiful golden hour light, I get giddy. Lucky for us (looking on the bright side, here), in Seattle’s February, the sun still sets pretty early (5:30ish) so we were able to get some gorgeous golden light for Paisley’s session first birthday session. It was so fun to see how she’s grown! I also love getting to see my newborn photography clients after they’ve been parents for a year. They are so much more relaxed and confident, though, to be honest, Whitney and Bryan seemed pretty chill from the start.
