Serb Couple’s Session with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Photographer

We seriously laughed the entire session.  I am not sure who was the funny but the three of us couldn’t help ourselves.  Donuts, donuts are quite laughable.  These two lovebirds are here for the desert views as long as the Marine Corps tells them so they wanted to opportunity to capture a piece of their story while they are here.  It is always wonderful to meet a couple so well connected and that can make each other laugh; laughter truly does give a relationship such a spark.  I enjoyed getting to know these two and photographing themTwentynine Palms Couples Photography - Twentynine Palms Couples Photographer Serb

Browning Family Perfectly Imperfect with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Photographer

So this family and I have had a long photographic history with one another.  I began photographing their story when Maddie was a newborn.  We have had many sessions together since, her momma loves pictures!  Hilary wanted to do a stylized session so we ran with some great ideas.  I ordered 50 yards of tulle and began designing.  This was my first session ever where I made all of the clothing that they were wearing.  We had plans, great plans.  Sunset, gorgeous dresses it was going to be perfection.  We also had a two year old.  She let us know the moment we attempted to put her dress on that she was the boss.  Hilary had already let me know she wanted real; she wanted to tell their story, the one that they are living right here and right now.  She wanted all of it.  So that is what we did and every image is perfect.  Every image has a moment, a memory attached to it and for that I am grateful.  I love my job!  I love perfect imperfection!Twentynine Palms Family Photographer - Yucca Valley Family Photographer Browning

Family Choices with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Family Photographer

Twentynine Palms Family Photographer - Yucca Valley Family Photographer - Uptain

So excited to share this family’s amazing story.  As a blended family of my own I love to capture others blended stories.  And much like our own family this one has a connection that is unique.  They have his, hers, and ours; they are no longer together as a couple but they are absolutely complete as a loving family.  They choose to love one another no matter the title but because love is more important.  Thank you all for allowing me to capture this unique yet wonderful family story!

Love when I get to spend a beautiful desert sunset with two sweet people celebrating their love.  Caitlyn is visiting her Marine and couldn’t stop enjoying the beauty here.  Matt was in awe too but honestly he was quite distracted by his Caitlyn! ❤

Existing with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Photographer

Do you exist in your family’s photo album? Do you put yourself in front of the camera with your kids and your husband? Where are the photographs that include you and your parents? How about the best friend? I am a photographer. I can tell you all day long why it is so important for you to exist in images for yourself and those that love you. I can also tell you the many excuses I myself have had for not existing in pictures. I need to lose weight. I am not happy with my haircut. I don’t like my smile. I am not wearing the right outfit. The list could go on for pages I am sure. Let’s take time to reflect though on each of these excuses, do any of them matter to our children, our parents, our spouses, our best friends? They don’t, I promise.

I have realized over the past few years that I too can no longer make excuses, my children, my grandchildren deserve to know I existed through photographs. Someday I want them to proudly and fondly talk about the experience that exists in those images. A single image can bring back a smile, a scent, a forgotten moment and we should be there for that.

After 7 years of photographing other families I have had the pleasure of capturing HUGE moments in other’s lives; weddings, births, graduations and beyond. I have also had the honor to capture families as they prepare to say final goodbyes to their loved ones, as they hope for final memories and photographs that memorialize their connections. Photographs really are a road map that tell the story of where we have been, who was with us and what did that experience feel like. As a professional photographer I of course want you to book those family sessions, make sure to capture your babies when they are little with a professional but I also hope you consider the story you leave behind. The one that your children can lay out on the floor and giggle over, the one that you can tell an entire weekend’s adventures in, the ones that capture your family’s dynamics.

Do you exist in your family’s photo album? Make a challenge today to take a goofy selfie with your little ones, book a session where someone else is peeking in from the outside, print an image to place on your desk at work. These are not only your moments and memories but are the future conversations of loved ones.

This family and I have been through maternity, newborn, a grandma visit and now as they are preparing to say good-bye to the desert we captured Myla’s 1/2 birthday!  As a military family they have many adventures to come but I am so glad our paths crossed here in 29 Palms.  And maybe we will meet again ❤

 

Rasmussen Engagement with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Photographer

Cuteness and love were in the air.  Couples sessions are always a fun adventure.  As a photographer I want to capture their relationship, their time uninterrupted but as a client they are so aware that a camera is there photographing them and their every move.  Taking the time to slow down and work together to achieve a natural session is so important.

Kathryn contacted me before the holidays to set up a sunset engagement session; her one request Joshua Trees!  I love out desert and I love to capture clients that are excited about it’s beauty so of course I was ready to oblige.  15 years I have been here and I still believe there is nothing like our sunrises and sunsets.

We met at a hot spot in Joshua Tree before traveling to a desert location so we took advantage of getting to know each other a little and of the great textures at the JT Saloon.  I was quickly aware I would have to remind these two to look at the camera every once in awhile because they were fairly smitten with one another.

Kathryn from the east coast and Jack from the west are here in Twentynine Palms courtesy of the Marine Corps but they are enjoying their time here, together awaiting the next adventure.  A fall wedding to plan on the other coast and possibly an upcoming move they are fully learning all about Marine Corps family life.

Playful, flirty and fun would be my best description of these two and their session.  I asked Jack a couple of questions, “Do you ever give her piggy back rides?”  His response, ” Depends on where we are going.”  It was stated with such confidence no one would have guessed the real answer NEVER.  So we tried it.  I also asked him, “Do you have a thing, you know a special sweet kiss or something?”  Well what followed was a silly rendition of kissing but oh so sweet.

I wish you many years of happiness and joy!  May life and the Marine Corps take you on many adventures together.  Congratulations Jack and Kathryn!2017-01-08_0001
