Malia Belle turned ONE.  I can hardly believe how fast time feels like it goes by.

I met this princess when she was only 4 days old, then photographed her at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and now.

That first year of life is such a fleeting time full of dramatic developmental changes.

It’s been really fulfilling to share the journey of motherhood  with Hsiaolei. Now we both have 2 kids and we talk about how to juggle it all and maintain some sort of peace and sense of who we are along the way.

I love our friendship and was so glad to capture all the little moments along the way that tell the story of the love she has for her beautiful Malia.
