Family photos in San Clemente with of dust and light photography

It’s hard to believe that this month our little Elizabeth June turns 19 months old! How has it already been a year and a half of sweet love from our sweet girl?  Watching your tiny baby grow into a toddler is definitely a bittersweet experience. Last year, Izzy started off 2018 as a 6 month old nursing baby…and by the time December came around, she was weaned and walking and talking and had actual hair I could clip back. In case you missed it, I shared a milestone post last week about all the things she can do and say now – click here to check it out ❤

Time flies when you’re a parent – that’s why it’s so important and special for us to have family photos taken 1-2 times a year to document all the amazing milestones we reach together!
