This fun family lived here in 29 Palms for 5 years; they say it was an adjustment but they eventually fell in love with the desert as so many of us do. They however received orders before they captured that love so they adventured back up here for a family session. With visitors in tow we were able to capture some fun, loving family portraits that will serve as a reminder of their time here! Both girls were ready to climb the beautiful rocks of Joshua Tree National Park so on a smaller scale we tried to make sure we snagged a shot of them on the rocks. The littlest guy was having fun using those legs, to run, everywhere but with his family’s help and I am pretty sure funny faces behind me he gave me some smiles to die for. I hope the Navarros love every image as they are gorgeous together and in the amazing scenery that I am lucky enough to call home!
Bumps, bumps, and more bumps equals babies. I so love maternity sessions and of course newborn session so when I am booked to photograph a family through both sessions I am elated. After some illness Jenn, Pete and I were finally able to meet out at the Big Canyon Morongo Preserve where we talked about what was to come and the welcoming of their little one. It so happens that Pete and I sort of know each other, my husband and him work together, so that is always that much better.
When mommy-to-be is as stunning as Jenn it makes my job easy and Pete was ready to show off his gorgeous wife! As we walked through the preserve Jenn was greeted by hikers with enthusiasm; she had never been photographed like this before so the attention made her smile. She made for a great subject and helped me create beautiful images. Hopefully she’ll continue to put herself in front of the camera! Pete kept her laughing, the entire time – a great thing to see between a couple.
Not long and they will be welcoming their little boy; be on the lookout for their newborn session. I know they can’t wait to meet him and neither can!
Working on blogging more and writing more about the people I meet, the places I go and the relationships that blossom through my photography; I couldn’t have a better couple to chronicle all of these things with.
I met these two last year for a fabulous couple’s session at the Big Canyon Morongo Preserve. With authentic cultural attire and a relaxed picnic scene we had fun capturing some amazing images; you can check them out here: https://memoriesbytasha.org/2015/01/31/twentynine-palms-photographer-kaur-couples-session/ I also had the opportunity to watch the Mrs. walk to receive her well earned LVN and then the next phase of life happened upon them I got the call or maybe text to photograph the baby bump.
These two are so excited to welcome their baby girl soon so we met at the Whitewater Preserve to capture some baby bump photographs to commemorate this time in their lives. With only a slight chill in the air we had gorgeous weather and a beautiful mommy. We wondered around the preserve settling in for images amongst the fall scenery while talking about what was next. A baby girl on the way brings excitement and the unknowns but these two can’t wait to spoil this little lady and I can’t wait to meet her as well! Looking forward to seeing all soon as you become 3.
In November I got to meet and photograph this beautiful family as they celebrated the soon to be arrival of their new addition. They braved the cold to capture our beautiful desert at sunset and how stunning did it turn out to be. Sometimes we are just lucky to have the best light, location and clients. Um how gorgeous is she pregnant?
With 2016 comes new adventures and I am so excited; so when asked to capture the next part of this story I was honored. This is the first session of the new year and I can’t think of a better way to start. Baby D and his family elected to have a lifestyle session in the comfort of their home and surrounded by their things. OMG I am in love with lifestyle newborn sessions! Need to do more.
As with many of the families that I photograph this family is away from their extended family as they grow due to the military; making great images important for everyone who is not here to enjoy this little man’s sweetness. He slept perfectly, going to have to ask his dad to swaddle all my newborns BTW! The few minutes he spent awake were peaceful as you can see below. His sweet sister was ready to pose with him and well her dog 🙂 so we were able to capture some great sibling shots – she may have needed a tiara in some!
Mom and I were already working on our themes for future sessions so I am pretty excited to get to watch this family grow for the time they get to be here.
