Gwen's Santa Barbara First Birthday Session

It's always fun to watch every family I get to know grow, and there's something really special about it being my own family. I can't believe it's already been a year since Garrett and Kara came out to Santa Barbara for Kara's maternity session. And it's been nearly a year since sweet little Gwen was born and I got to go to the hospital  to do her Fresh 48 Session. I was talking with Kara and she said she still looks back on the photos from the hospital because even though it isn't the most glamorous time in a woman's life, there is something so precious, so fleeting, about those first days in the hospital, snuggling your fresh new baby. I'm still so glad she let me take those photos for her! 

So here we are, a year later, and Gwen is adorable, active, walking, starting to talk... it's incredible. She is a little doll and I have loved watching her grow over the last year. I look forward to seeing her sweet little personality come out even more! Happy Birthday little one!
