Our Jenkins Family Hike – Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer

So what do I say about the Jenkins family. I have been fortunate enough to photograph this family for family photographs, birthday parties, family events, new babies and the list goes on. We decided to use our natural backdrop here in the desert for this year’s photographs. Anna picked out some great colors to go with our neutral background and the result was these amazing images. The kids loved the hiking it took to get to the gorgeous location and everyone was a good sport about the climbing. Thank you for once again entrusting me with your precious family’s photographs!

Running, Sliding, Fun!

This little one did not sit longer than 5 seconds during our hour at the park so we ran, we carried the “sitting” stool, played peek-a-boo, and played on the slide. These sessions are always an unknown because you aren’t really going to tell these cuties where to sit and smile they ALWAYS have a plan of their own but they are also some of my favorites because by being outside we get to capture her true personality; she probably doesn’t just sit at home either :) !

The Bell Boys – Twentynine Palms and our Adventures

I am super excited to blog this session. When mom and I met to plan her twin boys senior session she read me the warning label; most moms with boys do. They will cooperate but they are less than excited to spend a morning in front of the lens. None the less we talked about their personalities, interests and activities….. boy did we have an eventful, personality filled session planned. Both boys are swimmers for the high school but with it being winter that wasn’t one of our options so instead we began our session with some green at Lucky Park. I have to say upon meeting Jacob and Jeremy I was ready for a session filled with great photographs, lots of smiles and some adventurous new locations! They did not disappoint. While we hit some of the regular hotspots in town we also hiked to a small secret location where Jeremy had spent some of his summer time while in an internship with the Joshua Tree National Park. We hiked in, found more gorgeous locations and set to capturing a small piece of Jeremy’s history. Next on our list was to commemorate Jacob’s hard work as a Fire Explorer with the Twentynine Palms’ Fire Department. They were nice enough to let us in so Jacob could show off some of his dreams and memories; they also shared soot so we could catch him in some realistic images. These two were super fun and we captured so many great images that I may have overshared but enjoy! I think by the time we were done they were okay with being in front of the lens.

I was lucky enough to watch Andrea as she announced her new bundle and shared her progress through social media so of course when she asked if I would help her family document that new arrival through pictures I was excited. We met for a family session at the Twentynine Palms Inn with a few sneaks of baby Brooklynn. Brooklynn was a champ making our shots of her quick and almost seamless; sometimes a cute crying picture is a must with these little ones :)  with a big sister like Gabby I know this sweet bundle will always have a best friend.

What better way to celebrate the Marine Corps birthday today then to blog about one of my favorite military families? The Aldridges and I have gotten to know each other through church and photography. I was excited when Heather asked me to share in Adam’s promotion to Staff Sergeant. We headed out to the airfield where this Marine works to watch him be pinned by his wife and Master Sergeant; a moment in time that is a culmination of hard work, dedication, love, and time away. I believe these moments are family moments because the family perseveres while their Marine is dedicated to two families that they love and respect. Congratulations Aldridge family and thank you so much for letting me capture this moment in time for you!

The Niles Family Fall Session – Twentynine Palms Photography

I have had the pleasure of photographing this family for a few years now so it is exciting to work with them and watch these kiddos grow year after year. We spent our time in the Joshua Tree National Park to get our scenery for this year’s session. We also always have to let this princess get a few extra shots in her special outfit because she has a birthday shortly after the new year so this is always her one more year older shot! Thank you Niles family for once again letting me capture your new family portraits!!

Family. smiles and love – Twentynine Palms Photographer

This family here is always smiling, always joyful and always fun to be around. Lucky for me I get to see them more than just when we take their pictures. We met at the Morongo Preserve for this beautiful session. One of my favorite things to capture is the dynamics within the family and we tend to focus on the kids being included in that dynamic; I also want to capture that of the parent, together and in love. These two parents make it easy as you can see from these images. Thank you for once again allowing me to photography your beautiful family.
