David's 1st Birthday Cake Smash | San Diego Photographer

Lots of firsts here!  The first is this is my first blog post since May! I have so many beautiful sessions I need to blog too!  Anywho, this is my first cake smash session in my studio and it happened to be my babys 1st birthday cake smash!  

My not so little baby, David Noah turned one on October 22.  Since his birthday came on a Sunday this year, we celebrated on Saturday with a fun fiesta themed birthday party.  Although he won't remember it, we will and we can tell him about it when he's older, and show him pictures of course :)  Pictures from his party coming later!

This was actually David's 2nd cake smash.  I made him an almost sugarless, healthy cake for his party.  He really only ate the sprinkles off of it so for his official cake smash I decided to do less work and make a simple box cake,  He did the same thing to this one so not only did he not get much not-needed sugar, I had barely any mess to clean up! Yay David!

San Diego's Rising Tide Collaborate Shoot | Coronado Beach

San Diego's Rising Tide Collaborate Shoot in Coronado

Coronado Beach Photo Session

I’m excited to share the images from this wonderful shoot that was put together by such lovely creative in San Diego!  Over the course of a year, I have gotten to know so many wonderful ladies through the Rising Tide Society.  This group has been a huge encouragement for myself, and my business.  Each month there is a meeting to go over certain topics relating our small businesses.  All around the country and some parts of the world, small groups gather to do the same thing and this shoot was part of that!

Each group around the country/world had different vendors come together to create a shoot that represented their town and group of people.  Since we are based out of San Diego, our group went with a Mexican/Boho theme on the beach (Because when you think of San Diego the Beach most likely comes to mind)!  This Beach (Coronado) also happens to be my favorite San Diego beach!

Not only did this collaborative shoot give us all an opportunity to display our work for others to see our creativity and what we have to offer to the industry, we we’re able to get to know others even more, and connect with each other.  I’m so thankful for all the people I have met and most importantly, am able to connect with people in a non-competitive environment.  This is the motivation behind what the Rising Tide Society stands for, and if you haven’t seen the popular hashtag “CommunityOverCompetition yet, be on the lookout because this mindset is growing continually and you should definitely jump on board!  “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats”

Last month while we were visiting family and friends on the East Coast, we met up with our friend and wedding photographer for an anniversary session.  We love the photos and it was a perfect time to do them to show off my little baby bump as well!  Rebecca Shivers Photography
