It is so crazy how fast kiddos grow. I met Natalia and Diego when they were pregnant. The anxious and excited parents-to-be. Now, all of a sudden, they have an 18 month old! Ack! How does that happen??

My two favorites from their maternity and newborn shoot…

A year and a half later, this beautiful baby is walking, talking, and giggling up a storm. Even with her dear juice box, this is one of my favorite pictures of her.

Seriously. The little teeth and ear to ear grin are just adorable! Besos Besos for Martina!

Inspired by my own maternity shoot, we went back on this lovely path where Martina loved exploring.
