Arielle and Anthony, She said Yes!! – Twentynine Palms Photographer

Arielle contacted me with a quick fused request, she needed engagement pictures and she had a short timeline.  Her Marine was deploying in a few days.  We worked out some good locations on base and got to photographing.  Her Marine is a tank mechanic so we wanted to include the vehicles in our session.  As a first for me I was excited to see what we could do and I will say we got a lot more images than I would have thought.  This was a fun loving session that I am honored to have done.  Thank you for letting me capture this important time Anthony and Arielle!Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couple's Photography 4Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couple's Photography 3Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couple's Photography 2Twentynine Palms Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couple's Photography 1

Trevon’s Senior Session, Exploring the desert and his wardrobe! – Twentynine Palms Photography

This Trevon’s senior session.  This young man is known for his fashion sense and design so his session was tailored to showcase his personality, his love of the desert he grew up in, and some of his designs and fashion ideas.  This was a fun session with a different flair.  We started of in the Monument with a few family images.  We traveled to several other locations to add to the backdrops of the day but all were a piece of where this young man calls home.

The rank of Master Sergeant is a big honor and a lifetime achievement something that I know his family and fellow Marines are proud of.

It was super exciting and important to the family to have their 4 year old son be involved and assist in pinning his dad with the new rank.  It was an awesome morning and I am grateful to have been involved! Thank you Corkers.

Scott was all smiles through out his session and he has one of those smiles that is contagious.  We traveled to several locations through out 29 to include a new request for me; his grand parents house.  Scott wanted to include their home in his session to memorialize them as part of his senior year.  This awesome young man plays tennis, sings in the Select Choir who he will be traveling to New York with soon and he acts too.  I recently had the pleasure of watching him in the high school’s musical; oh did I mention he also took 1st place in the talent show!

Bailey always looks well put together and this day was of course no different.  She is a beautiful young lady inside and out.  We picked a couple of outdoor locations that would offer great colors and texture so we started at the Big Canyon Morongo Preserve.
