Dear Jensen!

I cannot believe that this sweet boy is almost ONE!! These babies are growing up way to fast and I am so extremely happy I was able to capture his cake smash before his family leaves the island! We thought it was going to be the perfect day after planning it for MONTHS, but guess again. It was super dark and cloudy, the water wasn’t as blue as it typically is and the cake was literally falling apart. Me and his mama, Kylee were stressing out because for some reason the cake was sliding off the top. We had to make a vast decision and take the top tier off and just use that, but it still turned out amazing despite our struggles!

I had Kylee write a letter to Jensen to read whenever he is older and it is so special <3

“Jensen Rorke James Cook, Your first year has flown by so incredibly fast. I blinked, and now we’re getting ready to celebrate your first birthday. The moment I laid my eyes on you at the hospital, I knew our lives were forever changed in the best way possible.

I have absolutely loved watching you grow into the strong-willed, smart, and wild little boy you are. Your daddy and I prayed so hard for you, and just as we were ready to give up- God gave us you. I hope you always remember how loved and wanted you are as you grow up. You’re our greatest gift, Rorke.

This first year has been full of learning, endless love, and the best memories. I know you won’t remember it, but that’s why mommy made sure to take as many pictures and videos as she could. You’ll learn when you get a little older how much your mommy loves taking photos, and i hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I hope you continue to see the adventure in everything you do. I hope you stay curious and eager to learn. I hope you continue to love with all your heart, and I hope you will treasure the little moments in life.

This year has been the greatest year of our lives, and it’s all because of you, little one.

I love you Love Always,

Your Mama.”
