Miss T Turns One Cake Smash |Family Photographer San Diego|

Cake Smash!!

Miss T joined Lavish Lark’s “Smashing San Diego” for her cake smash session, a fun evening at Torrey Pines Beach .

This little beauty got to smash her cake So Cal style on the beach, enjoying the gorgeous sunset and a side show of the evening surfers.

  Miss T got to sink her hands in to a super cute flip flop cake from Sweet Thing, and what a fun little surprise when she found fun rainbow drops inside.

Divas and Daredevils supplied the sweet little outfits for this cake smash adding some sassy style.

Please contact me if you would like more information on Lavish Lark’s  “So Cal Cake Smash” packages.

More Pumpkin Recipes for October!

Carrot Pumpkin Cake

( This sounds like it would be a great one to have for a cake smash session)

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup  unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 5 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/3 cups light-brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 3/4 cups finely grated carrots

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 14-cup angel-food cake pan. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. In another large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and brown sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, 4 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping down bowl as needed. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk and pumpkin puree. With mixer on low, add flour mixture to butter mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions pumpkin mixture. Scrape down bowl as needed. Fold in carrots.
  2. Spread batter into pan, using a small spatula to fill any air pockets. Smooth top and firmly tap pan on a flat surface several times to remove air bubbles.
  3. Bake until a wooden skewer inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 70 to 75 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Remove cake from pan. To serve, spoon glaze over top.

Welcome October Fall Cake Smash |San Diego Photographer|

Is there really a better way to start off Lavish Lark Photography’s “Smashing San Diego” cake smash sessions then with a great big pumpkin and an Oh so cute little witch?

What a fun afternoon with little Miss M and her big pumpkin cake, created by the ever wonderful Michelle @ Main Thing & Sweet Thing. Michelle has a talent for making perfect homemade cakes for our little ones to enjoy. This pumpkin cake was so yummy and cute; it would make a great centerpiece for any fall holiday table.  Come and join Main Thing & Sweet Thing on Facebook to keep up to dates on on the great events and scrumptious treats. 

I went crazy over the little pirate bloomers that Briar Rose Enchanted Bowtique sent to me for product shots, really they where the inspiration for this Halloween themed session.

We would like to introduce the new landing pad for The Be Lavish Photography blog. Two girls rockin’ the Southern California natural light. Good friends come together with the same goal of capturing moments in eternity. We strive to make the session fun and lighthearted drawing our clients into the moment. Our big debuting session, is the heart and soul of Be Lavish. Presenting the beautiful vision of photographs, capturing the essence of your story, through the creative heart of two shooters.

Perfect couple, in a perfect setting in sunny California. Today started with started out with a pampering session of hair dressing and Hollywood airbrush makeup by Be Lavish’s own Jolie Budau.

After a great time of friends and photographers gathering and making our plan of action we hit the road. Our journey began at Del Mar’s secret sweet spot. As you can see the light here is absolutely magical.

We proceeded to take our beautiful model on a grand tour of Del Mar’s chic shanty’s. As we wound our way through Old Del Mar we made way to beautiful Solana Beach. Cedros Avenue is photographers dream spot. That is when the magic began. As a sweet little French Bully named Ruby joined in the fun.

Tanner and Allie are the epitome of the “beautiful people” they are dreamy on film. We had much fun wasting this lazy Sunday away, while creating memories of a lifetime. From the stairs to the streets we both agreed that it is going to be hard to top this one. Call it the magic shooting hour light or the adorable bulldog perfection!

As we rapped and said our goodbyes we could not wait to get home, to dive into our fully stylized, unique editing process. In this we take your images on the path to true art.

Call to reserve your  session  today! 760.515.2757
