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.

Zach’s ready for Graduation – Yucca Valley Photographer

Meet Zach, he is a Yucca Valley High School Senior!  His mom and I spent some time planning and working out schedules for this session, it turned out great.  Zach plays baseball, rides dirt bikes, and is learning the guitar.  He was a fun and energetic young man to work with.  He is ready for graduation and plans to head off to college in the fall.  We snuck in a family session while we were out there and came up with some great shots of him with his brothers and mama!

Baby “H” – Twentynine Palms Newborn Photographer

The smaller details in life, our first born, our itty bittys!  I was happy to photograph this little family’s new addition.  Baby H entered into this world early so he had a few small struggles but was perfection for our session.  These images are all precious to each family and are time sakes for each of them.  I hope the H family loves each and everyone of them.

Paige, Wildcat Extraordinaire – Twentynine Palms Senior Portrait Photographer

One more high school senior, meet Paige!  This wildcat plays tennis, basketball, and softball; in all her spare time this beauty is a firefighter explorer.  After high school she will be attending college to continue her passion for fire fighting and helping people.  Her mom and I have known each other for a few years now so it has been a pleasure to watch Paige grow up and what fun us three girls had while traipsing through the basin looking for great spots.  Paige picked one of my favorite places to start her shoot, the Whitewater Preserve and after that they were good sports when we stopped at random locations!  I hope they are as pleased with the results as I am.  Congratulations to yet one more great Twentynine Palms Senior!
