Aidan Turns One | Washington DC Family Photographer

It's always wild going back a year later and seeing a child who has quickly become a toddler. I photographed Aidan as a newborn and again at three months old when his great grandfather was in town from Argentina. He was the same baby, but totally and completely different. It's always so hard to wrap my head around it because time goes so quickly. I asked dad if it felt like time flew by and he said, "No! It was the longest year of my life!" Which is amazing. And true. And so honest. And now as a parent of a one year old myself. I completely understand what he meant.
