Our sweet girl’s first birthday cake smash session is finally on the blog! We were at the beach for her actual birthday so I thought, why not have her first birthday smash cake on the beach? I am so happy with how the photos turned out!
This was such a sweet and precious day for me! Most of you know that Rebecca spent the first week of her life in the NICU fighting for her life. I feel like I spent the first few months of her life fighting to get myself back fully after going through another traumatic NICU experience with our second child (Levi also spent a week in the NICU). So, when it came time to plan her first birthday party…Josh and I decided that we didn’t want to do a full on party. We wanted to get away as a family, spend time together and just make precious memories together- without the stress of planning a party. This trip was the perfect solution! My parents were able to go with us which was amazing! We also were able to take advantage of the photo session and grab a few family photos. Such sweet memories made!
