Kaleia's "One Year" Shoot

We continued the tradition of waiting to do a "one year photo shoot" until 13 months. This time we hired our friend and neighbor Julie Harrell to capture our little Leia and some of the whole family. We had a lot of fun taking pictures around Bellingham and think she got some great pictures! You can check out more of her work, including more from our photo shoot, on her blog.
