30th Birthday Cake Smash | Turtle Bay Exploration Park | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Who doesn't love a gorgeous skirt, a floral crown, cake and champagne. Oh, lets not mention four other photographers! Yup, there was five of shooting this gorgeous gal for her 30th Birthday Cake Smash! I had the pleasure of getting together with a couple of local Redding, CA photographers and doing a little shootout. I legit had sooo much fun and love meeting new people!

Kat ROCKED her photoshoot and was so much fun to shoot! Between the dress and those eyes **cue Alicia Keys - Girl On Fire**. I am so happy she was up for the crazy paparazzi mob that came with this photoshoot. Lets not mention all of us cheering her on to finish the whole bottle of champagne.

Thanks Kat for coming out and being such a trooper and ROCKING it! You're a badass babe!

Now a little food for thought...

As photographers, we don't like sharing shooting locations, or others shooting the same concept as us. This photoshoot, there were FIVE of us and all of our pictures look different. Between editing styles and angles we chose to stand - we were shooting the same thing, but everyone's is so different.

So why do we get so upset if someone shoots something similarly? It makes no sense to me. Especially if it isn't a unique idea to begin with, and it's something that is all over Pinterest? Why do we get so huffy puffy about it? We're all here doing the same thing - delivering for our clients and making sure the bills get paid (there's some high costs when it comes to running a legal business). We all shoot differently. We all edit differently. We all work with our clients differently. We are all our own business and brands. So why? Is it worth getting upset about? Worth being petty about? Absolutely not! We're all here for one thing and one thing only - our passion for what we do.
