Rebecca's First Year of Life // Beautiful Memories from Newborn until One

NJ-Baby-First-Birthday-Photographer38.JPG

For over one year I have had the pleasure to capture life's special moments of this incredible family, Bianca Bessa, Haroldo Moreira and Rebecca Faith.

Since Bianca found out she was expecting, she started to plan a whole first year of beautiful memories with Rebecca. I have captured the most adorable months of Rebecca growing up like when she was a newborn, 3 months old, sitter session, a family outdoor session when Rebecca turned 9 months old and of course her one year old session along with a cake smash. Also last but not least, Rebecca's first birthday party which was unbelievably beautiful!

If you would like to know a little bit more about Rebecca's life I would encourage you to visit Bianca's personal blog on Instagram @biancabessac where she shares tips about being a mom and her life with Rebecca.

Now be ready for a screen full of cuteness…


 

For her newborn session, Bianca chose to do a lifestyle session where we captured the environment in which they live.

As Rebecca turned 3 months old, Christmas was around the corner and we decided to shoot some photos for their Christmas cards.

A sitter session is done between 6-8 months when the baby is already sitting by themselves, Rebecca did amazing and we got the most adorable images.

For her cake smash, Rebecca came to the studio and we first shot some images with her birthday dress, which, by the way was just adorable. All detailed and embroidered in pearls and a pearl tiara she really looked like a doll. For the cake smash she wore a tutu dress and she definitely smashed that cake.

For those who doesn't know, Brazilians make a big deal about their kids first birthday party. Rebecca's first birthday was held at the Branches Catering in West Long Branch, where she had a lot of fun around family and friends. The DJ played kids songs and the animator brought all the little (and big ones) to the dance floor. A table full of sweets and party favors decorated the minimalist details of a doll tea party theme and everything looked incredibly beautiful.
