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

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!

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 ❤

 

Margie and the Family – Twentynine Palms Family Photographer, Memories by Tasha Photographer

I understand all too well how difficult it is to get an updated family photo now that the kids are grown and living somewhere else so when Margie asked me to come over on Christmas Eve I was game.  It was definitely a cold desert winter day but everyone was a good sport about hanging out in the impressive view of their home’s yard.  Yes this is what they get to wake up to!

So they all had me cracking up the entire time.  From the pup who seemed to be right in there for photos, to the granddaughter who had her supermodel poses practiced and ready, and the boys who were playful and ornery keeping everyone smiling.  Capturing this families dynamic was my pleasure and these images speak to their love for one another!

I know Margie’s heart will melt and I am so glad we were able to spend a small piece of the holiday making memories that she can hang on her wall.

Jett turns ONE – Twentynine Palms Photographer, Memories by Tasha Photography

So I was excited when momma contacted me to do this little man’s ONE year photos because you see we worked together to create a fun announcement about his momma’s pregnancy with him.  His momma is always creative and fun to design a session with.  And with a name like Jett nothing like airplanes to create a gorgeous set of images.

Unfortunately his session was scheduled on a cold, blistery day here in the desert so some modifications to his session were required.  Jett gave several great pictures, smiles, tears and all but he decided he was done with the weather before he smashed his cake.  Cue a 4 year old sister, who was dying to get her hands and taste buds on that cake, to have a fun cake smash with the best cutie pie pictures and it all works out.

WOW What a year 2016! – Memories by Tasha Photography

2017 has BIG things coming, I am beyond excited but before we move forward let’s take a moment to look back through this year of awesomeness!

Every year I am amazed at the collection of experiences I have through my lens.  The emotions, the connections, the relationships, reunions, new life and existing bonds, the moments captured; I am never quite prepared for all that it is.  The images before me never cease to inspire me to want to work harder for this business and for you my clients and friends.

Throughout the years, I have watched your families grow, change, send loved ones off to new adventures and reconnect again and again.  I have met so many new people, made new friends, hung out with those visiting our beautiful desert while on vacation, snuggled the newest of babies, so many of my own stories and experiences are because of all of you.  Capturing your love stories, your birth stories, your history and your hopes for tomorrow is always my honor and my goal. 

In this year, I have shared with you 39 families. 4 weddings, 1 vow renewal, 2 military retirements, 7 life events, 1 birth, 8 mommas & daddies to be, 11 newborns, 6 seniors, 3 military families reunited, 6 cakes smashes, 1 tea party birthday celebration, 1 sunset father/daughter dance session and 8 sessions celebrating childhood milestones.  I look at these collages and I am astonished at this year and the beauty that it has held.

Wow! Where did the Year go? – Key Family

Almost a year ago I met this little lady, she was brand new to the world!  Her father and I walked into the operating room where her mother laid in anticipation of the biggest moment in her life.  Nathan and I watched, I also photographed as she took her first breathes.  The opportunity to capture these moments in time are beyond blessings to me yet this family has continued to bless me.  Nathan said that day we were tied for life because the 3 of us shared in that moment.

Here we are a year later, I have photographed them many other times, Hannah and I have shared cups of coffee, parenting stories and ideas.  They have become more than clients to me as I have watched them blossom as a family.

This perfect little girl will be one next month, she is celebrated and loved.  Thank you for once again allowing me to capture these times in your lives #keypartyof3

Twentynine Palms Family Photographer – Brookins Family Fun!

I had the opportunity to photograph this family a couple of years ago; they even said they had fun!  This time there was the addition of a grandson so even more awesome.  With a big blended family photo shoots can be a little stressful but these guys show up every time ready to smile and have fun.

While discussing a location Andrea was excited to use the Indian Cove campground as their backdrop as they enjoying hiking there as a family.  This was a great chance to capture them in an environment that holds memories for them together.

Visiting from North Carolina was their new and handsome grandson who was super full of smiles.  Everyone wanted their picture with him so they all took turns trading baby and smiles.

There were lots of laughs, lots of funny faces and lots of memories captured!  Thank you for trusting me once again to capture these forever moments and I look forward to our next adventure.

Twentynine Palms Photography – The Navarros visit

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!
