Rebecca and Matt were my first family I spent a Day In The Life with while building my portfolio, so photographing their son's first birthday party definitely holds a special place in my heart. I love how the first birthday feels like a celebration of the parents for making it through the first year. And the relationships between the parents and their friends and family is almost as important as the cake smash itself. Ah, parenting! The struggle is real, and nobody gets it done alone!
