Welcome Home Marine! – Twentynine Palms Photographer

I love homecomings!  I don’t book too many because of my crazy schedule but I am always so excited when I am waiting with my clients for their loved one.  This beautiful lady was super excited, obviously, to have her Marine home.  In the heat with her great sign we waited for this reunion.  It was happy, with tears, lots of hugs and kisses.

The Bostick Family – Twentynine Palms Family Photographer

This fun family session was in the Joshua Tree National Monument!  We started our session with some resistance but as you can see from these images we ended with lots of fun!  We spent our time climbing rocks, making silly faces, and catching some great photographs.  I know the families back home will be excited to see this beautiful family in their updated photos.

Harshman Couples Session – Twentynine Palms Photographer

I was contacted by Brittney to do a couples session that highlighted their affection for one another and their fur babies.   We decided to use a great location on base that offered several backdrops and I think it worked!  These two were fun to photograph and to hang out with.  With deployment pending there were a few distractions but before long we were wondering through the location capturing moment after moment and image after image!

Warfield Retirement – Twentynine Palms Event Photography

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I am so blessed to get to watch and photograph so many great events.  Every retirement ceremony is a little bit different as those who have served with the retiree begin to tell stories, these stories include times of heroism, times of sacrifice, times of a brotherhood like no other, times of happiness and times of mourning.  The Warfield retirement including the great tales of a young Marine who grew to be a leader and a friend to many!  This family is moving onto the next chapter in their lives with pride of who their Marine was and has become, I wish all the luck and happiness in the world.  Congratulations!

It’s Baby Time!! – Twentynine Palms Birth Photography

This post is a bit late and long but I am super excited to share it.  I was asked to photograph a birth by some doula friends of mine.  With no birth photography experience I was excited to do it but with new experiences and ones I can’t recreate I was just as nervous.  I have chosen to share this experience in black and white because for me these images give more emotion than the color.

 

This was a home birth in water so as a woman who has given birth to 3 children in a hospital, in a bed I was curious as to how this whole birthing process would work.  Well it was an awesome experience that I am thankful I was asked to be a part of.Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 1 With a doula and two midwives this laboring mom had lots of support.  It was a very calming and natural process that of course netted one of the best gifts; a beautiful healthy baby girl!!Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 2

You may notice that the three other children were a part of welcoming their new sister into the world so this was a family moment shared in a peaceful manner.  All new to me it was an amazing time where what happens naturally actually occurred naturally!!Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 3 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 4 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 5 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 6 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 7 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 8 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 9 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 10 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Birth Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Birth Photography 11

Isabella is ONE! – Twentynine Palms Photographer

So about a year ago I was asked to photograph this little beauty, I love when I get to watch them as they grow.  Through out the year I have photographed her family and a sister’s senior portraits.  Although she was reluctant for some our session her sisters were able to get her to smile and play for the camera :)  I am super excited to continue to watch this one grow through out the years!Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twetynine Palms Children's Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Children's Photography 2 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twetynine Palms Children's Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Children's Photography 3 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twetynine Palms Children's Photography, Yucca Valley Photographer, Yucca Valley Children's Photography 1

Family Vacay Photo Op :)

So there is a saying out there; All because two people fell in love.  Well that is the story behind this great fun family session.  All because these two fell in love there is a great story of family, friendship, goofiness, and look at how it has grown over the years!  They have added son in laws and grandchildren.  We spent a very warm afternoon on the golf course outside their vacation condos posing, playing, and laughing.  These are my favorite kind of sessions.
