So this sweet little man was so snuggly and sleepy we were able to wiggle him into several positions and lots of props! I know his mom is excited to see all these amazing images; she wanted to make sure that she captured her little man while he was still so small! I think he just might be ready to attend his first formal in this tie. This is the first time I have used this prop and I am totally in ❤ with the result. Again sweetness over flowed for this session as he was really so very good at sleeping and looking cute! I think the below yawn was the only real fuss we got out of him for the day! If you want to chronicle this time in your life please let me know so we can schedule your session!!
Another senior session done! I have had so much fun this year with all these great seniors. So Cole and I have worked together a few times now and it keeps getting better. There are so many great shots from this session that I may have even over shared 🙂 These images are so significant for a variety of reasons first if you know the Estrada’s you know that they breathe football, all of them. Second, if you are familiar with our little town this is where Cole began and ended his youth football career first as a Storm player and finally as a Twentynine Palms High School Wildcat. His brothers pictured below are following in the same tradition. Finally this score board behind him was a bit in the making so to be the first graduating class to use this board also makes these images unique. These great images were shot in his grandparent’s well decorated yard and turned out amazing. I think we finally have a good work understanding so taking pictures of Cole has become easy! If you have had the pleasure of meeting this young man you have seen the amazing smile that he possesses but you also know that is a pretty serious young man at times! This image is Cole’s original artwork as it hangs in our local Art Gallery. He is an extremely talented young man and I was very excited we were able to capture this image!
This is the Bustamante Family! When mom contacted me about a family session she was excited to capture her growing family as they were and in their backyard where they are busy making memories! This fun little ship that dad built is where they adventure and climb. They recently added one more member to the family to complete their threesome of itty bittys! Dad spends his days as a Marine so it was super important that we captured that piece of who this family is so used new baby Bustamante to display this cover beautifully. Our session was full of smiles, gummies, fun and of course bubbles 🙂 I don’t remember what exactly happened here but I am pretty sure it had something to do with the magic gummies that kept this young guy motivated during our session. Thank you Bustamante family for choosing Memories by Tasha Photography to capture this time in your life! If you are interested in memorializing your family in time please contact me!
This is Liam. He is about to turn one so of course it was fitting that we planned a session and cake smash to celebrate! A while back you can find Liam at about a month old when I first met him for his newborn pictures! These baby blues have amazed me from the beginning! Oh my is there trouble to come from those because mom will not be able to say no and the girls will love them! Capturing moments like this is one of my favorite things. Moments in time, smiles and giggles that are now captured forever! Liam wasn’t so sure about the grass. There’s something funny about little ones with the new feel of grass. He kept lifting his feet up. unsure of what it was. Is it cake time yet mom??
So when Andrea contacted me about doing their first family photo I was super excited! There new adventure is a bit reminiscent of my family’s journey.
To say the boys in this family were simply here because they were told to arrive was an understatement but before too long they would be right in there with new posing ideas and fun pictures!
Making time to capture the ❤ that has brought this family together is always so important. It is easy when we are raising kids to forget to stop and look at one another for a moment! As you can see these two enjoyed that moment to the fullest, I couldn’t get them to now smile at each other!
It is also a great way to torture our children 🙂
This picture makes me smile! I can’t remember what these guys were doing but I love the fact that they are all laughing so hard and it shows! This woman right here smiled and laughed in every picture. What an amazing way to walk through life it was a pleasure to work with Andrea and her family!
I have felt so blessed this past month with all the Wildcat Seniors that I have photographed!
Meet Jake he is a Wildcat Senior who is a scholar and athlete. Jake plays football, basketball, and now track. He is college bound with a stellar GPA and all around a nice guy. We had fun wondering around Twentynine Palms looking for new locations, backgrounds and textures to photograph during this session. He was a good sport most of the time 🙂
I have been lucky enough to not only watch Jake grow up over the last few years but to also consider his family friends so his mom and I thought pictures could go on forever; he on the other hand thought we were done.
Zach is another one of those Wildcat seniors that I have had the personal pleasure of knowing through out the years! I have watched this young man grow and become this wonderful person you see before you here.
We picked a few locations so we could capture some of the things Zach has enjoyed throughout his time in Twentynine Palms and as part of these 4 years. As an avid runner for both track and cross country we had to include his running shoes, that letter mens jacket full of hard earned patches and the track that he was finally able to use in his senior year!
Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to work with you and capture this special time in your life!
