{Styled} 1st Birthday Pie Smash | Award Winning Myrtle Berry Pie | Myrtle Creek Bontanical Gardens Fallbrook, Ca | Stevie Dee Photography Fallbrook, Ca Photographer


We met the Dittenber Family back in December of last year when Christina saw us out in the park during our Holiday MIni Sessions. She ran up to us and asked for a business card and scheduled her family photos in the new year when Shyanne was only 6 months old. We had a blast working with them so naturally we were so excited when they called and scheduled a photo session for Shyanne's 1st Birthday! It's amazing how much these kids grow in such a short amount of time. Shyanne is such a gorgeous little girl, the camera just loves those blue eyes of hers!

Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens is located in Fallbrook, Ca and is such a neat little place to visit on the weekends! We thought this would be the perfect setting for Shyanne's photo session. Rickety Swank Vintage Rentals came in and set up two different styled scenes for us, first this sweet little teepee. And seriously, that birthday hat though. Love!

Shyanne's birthday theme is "Country Fair" so instead of smashing a traditional birthday cake, we bought an award winning Myrtle Berry Pie from the Bloom Cafe and let her rip into it!

And of course the pie stand from Rickety Swank Vintage Rentals was just too darn cute!

Happy 1st Birthday Shyanne!


A Birthday Party Fit For a Princess | Peytin's 2nd Birthday | Wildomar, Ca Photographer | Stevie Dee Photography

PEYTIN-7 Seems like just yesterday Peytin came to me for her 1st birthday cake smash session. I can't believe how quick the time flies by, in a few weeks she'll be turning 2!  We celebrated her 2nd birthday this last weekend at her Nana and Poppa's house in Wildomar, Ca. A storm passed through and made it nearly impossible to keep the decorations in place, but Peytin didn't let it rain on her parade! And luckily I was able to snap a few photos before the weather got too wild. It was cold, windy and wet but there was good food, and great company! All in all it was fabulous and just perfect for this little princess.






PEYTIN-2There were numerous times where I caught the birthday girl taking a nice finger full of frosting from the cupcakes on the desert table. Apparently the morning of her party she insisted on eating one for breakfast as well! Ha! What can you say? The girl loves her cupcakes ;)




I love what they did to the food table here. Such a cute and easy way to spruce things up, and perfect for the princess theme! If this isn't already on Pinterest, it needs to be!



And who could forget the bounce house? Peytin and the other kids had a ball in there!




Peytin has a wonderful group of family and friends that absolutely adore her! She was showered with gifts from a life size doll to light up tennis shoes, and everything in between! The sparkly cowboy hat and the personalized book were my favorite gifts!



When the candle was lit and everyone starting singing Happy Birthday, Peytin just lit up! If this little face doesn't melt your heart I don't know what will!





After the cake we snuck outside and took a few family photos, complete with a temper tantrum, model poses and kisses!





Happy, Happy Birthday Princess Peytin! You are a sweet, beautiful little lady!

Love you lots!

I photographed Olivia's Newborn, 6 month, and now her 1 year photos! It has been so much fun watching her grow and I love being a part of all her Milestones!
