It’s a Cake Smash – Twentynine Palms Cake Smash Photography

I had the fortune of photographing this guy as a newborn and on his 1st birthday!  He loved the balloons and roaming the pathways of the Morongo Preserve.  Cake smash sessions are always, a little messy and unique.  He wasn’t sure what to think but ultimately his mess came from throwing the cake in the air and feeding his mom.  Thank you for sharing this moment with me Meza Family!

Coghill Girls Celebrate – Twentynine Palms Event Photographer

“This is the best birthday party EVER” poetry to a mom who has put everything into making her sweet girls’ 1st and 3rd Frozen birthday party special.  Around every bend there was a new detail that Fauna used to make this a party to remember and her 3 year old made sure to let her know.  It’s always an honor to be asked to participate in and capture these memories for families.  Tutus were made by me to match the Frozen theme, Clara warmed my heart when she wouldn’t smash her cake because she didn’t want her tutu to get dirty; she also had me laughing the entire time with all her comments and thoughts!!  A great day for all.

Fugere Family – Twentynine Palms Family Photographer

Ann contacted me and wanted to capture her family in a beautiful desert setting with a relaxed feel.  We decided on the Indian Cove Amphitheatre where her girls, high heels and all, climbed, smiled, giggled, made faces and helped capture so many great shots.  These girls were so much fun running through the desert looking in holes, climbing on rocks and under we had an adventurous day!  Thank you again for letting me capture a piece of your history in the beautiful desert!

Browning Newborn Session – Twentynine Palms Photographer

So sometimes we meet people in a different capacity then we imagined.  So the Brownings showed up at our house when we were selling some furniture and thanks to my daughter Kaylyn we connected the baby bump with my photography business.  Having two parents as active duty Marines we had fun creating “moto” images for each of them.  Dad had painted a pallet into a beautiful art piece with the American Flag so we found lots of great uses for that piece during this session.  As well you will notice that we used the Browning logo to pull in their iconic last name.  This was a super fun and personal session.  Thank you again for allowing me to help capture this time in your family’s story!

Jordan’s Senior Session – Twentynine Palms Senior Photography

I’ve had the pleasure to watch this young lady throughout the years in many different areas of her life.  I’ve seen her as a great friend to my daughter, I’ve watched her grow as a soccer player and as a leader.  She has big plans ahead as she moves through her senior year.  When Jordan arrived she wasn’t super excited about having her picture taken yet she was most definitely photogenic and made for an easy session.  We spent some time at a few locations to highlight some of her favorites, the Wildcat’s Soccer Team, the Bull’s all set in the town she grew up in.  I can’t wait to continue to see this young lady grow and do amazing things.  Thank you for allowing me to capture this exciting time through photographs!!

Blankenhip Senior Session – Twentynine Palms Photographer

Occasionally I have a senior who shows up simply because mom said to; usually my boys and this session wasn’t any different but we went out and made it happen.  Ryan was a great sport and adventured around with me so we could make his momma happy.  The result was lots of great images for his family to enjoy during this special time – senior year is that time when time simply flies by so I am always honored to capture a piece of it!!  Thank you Blankenships!

Twentynine Palms Photographer ~ Kaur Couple’s Session

So I come to you again with such love for what I get do with people and my camera!!  It took us a little while to get our schedules together but once we did we sure did have fun creating a magical session.  When we arrived Sarab and Garry were in amazing colors with Sarab in beautiful authentic Indian attire that had her glowing as we wondered through the Morongo Preserve.  Each picture, pose and outfit allowed me a peek into these two as people and a couple.  We laughed so much my cheeks hurt, took so many pictures I don’t know how they will begin to choose and even started planning more sessions together.  Thank you so much for sharing your love and enjoyment of life with me Kaur family; I can’t wait for the next adventure!Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couples Photography, Yucca Valley Couples Photography 1 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couples Photography, Yucca Valley Couples Photography 2 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couples Photography, Yucca Valley Couples Photography 3 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couples Photography, Yucca Valley Couples Photography 4 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Couples Photography, Yucca Valley Couples Photography 5

I do – Military Wedding on Camp Pendleton

So where do I begin…… I had so much fun editing this beautiful wedding.  We all adventured from Twentynine Palms and other southern California locations to watch these two say I do in front of their family and friends.  They have actually been married almost a year but wanted to share in a beautiful, loved filled day with those they love most.  We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather on Camp Pendleton on this December day and everything went off without a hitch.  I love my almost sneak peeks and these two had fun with it helping me to create some great images.  With a gorgeous ceremony in The Ranch Chapel these two said I do and we used the rustic old world feel of the location for their wedding session.  I have to say nothing tops a first dance for me; I honestly think it is such an intimate and special for the newly married couple so I couldn’t help putting together a great collage of these two in black and white.

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Lopez for sharing your day and story with me!

Quinceanera Elissia turns 15! – Twentynine Palms photographer visits Blythe, CA

Finally got through the 800+ images that I look on this beautiful, special day!  Elissia and her family put so much time, effort, energy, and detail into this special, traditional sweet 15 birthday celebration.  During the day the birthday girl participates in a religious ceremony, choreographed dances with her court, a changing of dress shoes to heels that her dad places upon her feet like Cinderella and then she dances for her very first time in heels with her father.  I am so glad I got to be a part of such a fabulous and special day!!

Too Cute – Twentynine Palms Maternity Photography

These two really are just too cute for words.  They are fun, loving and photogenic <3.  There is not much more a photographer could ask for.  They are also busy with life changing right now so they are keeping me busy.  I got to photograph their 2nd wedding before Christmas, be on the lookout for another beautiful blog post soon, and a new arrival soon.  It is always awesome when you get the chance to work with clients through multiple life events.  Saul is also a photographer in some of his spare time only he uses an old school camera, that winds, and film.  We incorporated some mages on that beauty as well so he had to teach me a thing or two (not sure how I did).Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Maternity Photography, Yucca Valley Maternity Photography 2 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Maternity Photography, Yucca Valley Maternity Photography 1 Twentynine Palms Photographer, Yucca Valley Photographer, Twentynine Palms Maternity Photography, Yucca Valley Maternity Photography 3
