The Pierce family is having an adventurous year; they are about to move to another country on military orders but were blessed with their second baby girl before the big move so, I was lucky enough to get the chance to photograph them for a second time before they leave. Daughter #1 and I had a great time at the maternity shoot so nothing was different this time. She is full of energy and smiles; so much fun to chase after and photograph. Little Miss #2 so sweet and adorable was only a week old when we had our photo shoot. And must we not forget to include the very first baby in this family; their fur baby who is great with the girls and was so good about us posing her in the pictures too. Thank you Pierce Family for once again choosing Memories by Tasha Photography and good luck on this new chapter.

Sprawka Family Session
When two people get married families multiply well meet the Sprawkas, they are part of our multiplication when my mom and Haley’s dad got married in April. I was very excited to get to spend some time hanging out in a true lifestyle session with this family. The boys got up in the morning, they were bribed with a frozen yogurt date if they behaved, and then they picked out their personality filled outfits for the photo shoot. The fun thing about lifestyle photography is that the intention is to capture a family, right where they are in that time – their dynamics, their relationships, their personalities and this session did just that. There are so many fun, chaotic, and loving images that came out of our time together that capture the Sprawka family – who they are, right now. I can’t wait; we already have a cake smash planned for November, be on the look out.
Gehris Family Session on Oceanside Beach
This family has become so dear to my heart! Bettina and I met each other through work but she has become a dear friend and I have felt so blessed to capture moment after moment of this family’s journey. This session was the first that we were able to have Angie, the off at college daughter so we have a complete family picture. The Gehris family is getting ready to welcome another addition so I am very excited to do a gender announcement with them next week, look out for the BIG announcement!
Run for the Warriors 5K in San Diego, CA
I’ve said it before, photography has brought so many things into my life; so many blessings. Hope For The Warriors is a charity that started providing services to our injured service members as they came home forever changed by their time serving. Just with any other charity they began slowly but over the years they have expanded their opportunity to serve by offering programs for service members, family members, want to expand your knowledge of adventure – they cover that too through offering excursions where modifications are made to support handicapped participants, the list goes on and on. I was given the opportunity to photograph one of their fundraising activities. This was the first year visiting the west coast for a Run for the Warriors 5k in San Diego. This 5k was ran or walked along the embarcadero in gorgeous conditions and I couldn’t have felt more blessed than to have participated, thank you for all you do! I look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Adela and Juniors Engagement Session
When I met Adela to discuss her upcoming wedding day and the photography I knew I had met a genuine person. Her smile lights up a room and when I met her fiancé Junior I saw that they both had amazing smiles, our engagement session in San Diego was full of laughs. As we walked around the Embarcadero, changing scenery for different backdrops one thing was obvious; these two enjoy each other and are excited for the future that’s only around the corner. Yesterday I photographed the big day, what an amazing experience as a photographer and someone in awe of all the culture and customs their families share. Be on the lookout for more about Adela and Junior as we follow them onto their wedding day!
Etherington Family Session
While this family is new to Twentynine Palms as their zip code they have been vacationing in the monument for some time so they were excited to shoot a photo session in Indian Cove. These fun kids were ready to climb every rock and jump from spot to spot! Even mom, baby bump and all was fearless in ensuring we used the scenery to it’s fullest extent. I am so glad they picked me to start off their new journey and to celebrate the soon to be addition to their growing family. Welcome to the desert Etherington Family!
