Ariel contacted me to help capture their relationship in time, in the desert that they currently call home. She wanted a special location that would show the beauty of our desert and light, while encapsulating their deep love for each other. We found the space, we found the light and they were exquisite in front of my camera.
William was consistently the one making us laugh and wonder would we manage those endearing images every wife wants; as you can see he pulled through time and time again. He makes her laugh, he makes her swoon. They danced among the Joshua trees. She captured his touch, his glances and his deep devotion.
During this time in life these two wanted to include their fur babies who also did a great job. They only pulled Ariel through the desert once otherwise they were not people or camera shy!
Thank you both for allowing me to help preserve these moments for you!
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.
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.
What is a family looking for in a photography session and how do they find it? There are different levels of talent and experience, there are different art forms and perspectives so it is important to find that photographer that can deliver what you envision. I hope I capture that for the families I work with each and every time.
Courtney and I scheduled and rescheduled this session which happens when working in real life but am I ever so glad we got our schedules together. Unbeknownst to me we work our session in on their 7th wedding anniversary which makes it that much more exciting to capture some of what they have experienced and created together.
Boy did we have fun!! I always want to create beautiful pictures but I also strive to have an enjoyable experience so with three little ones in tow we needed to stay moving, keep their attention and have some fun; we did exactly that. Courtney has a beautiful and sweet family full of love and laughter. We captured a little piece of each personality throughout our time together and I wish you all continued happiness!
Blessings abound. I am getting a new sister! These two hold such a special place in my heart for so many reasons and I can’t wait to officially call Emily my sister.
Adam and Emily share such a fun kind of love. They each bring their uniqueness to the relationship complimenting one another perfectly. As a family we have watched them grow together and it has been wonderful. They make each other laugh, they harass one another (a requirement in our family), and they love each other wholly. These two share a wide variety of exciting activities together from hiking, backpacking, to entertaining their great selection of friends for crazy game nights; they are forever busy and creating new memories. Both settled into great occupations and a beautiful home we can’t wait to watch the next stage of their adventure together.
For my husband and I there are some additional blessings that these two have given us. Our daughter has spent the last year living with them while she is attending college. They have given a gift to all of us that is unrepayable other than to say a 1,000 thank yous. They have given us the rare opportunity to have her grow at this stage of life with great examples while giving her the space to explore as an adult, something that is often difficult for us parents to do. They have taught her about love and relationships beyond just what she has witnessed in our home. They have given her the right balance of freedom and responsibility to continue her adventure into adulthood; for that we are forever grateful.
We are so ready to watch these two “make it official” but have always known that Emily was already ours to love. See you soon! Love you both!
OMG the best job in the world! These two were super cute together and couldn’t take their eyes off of their new son. Away from family as so many of our military families are they were looking to commemorate this time in their lives and share a peek into their new family. We even caught some great baby smiles at the end that will melt the strongest of hearts!
One of the best things with my job is getting to watch families grow throughout the years! This is a larger family dynamic but several of them I have worked with before; this time there were more itty bitties and new spouses! With everyone visiting from all over this was a great opportunity to get some Grandma shots and grandbaby pictures. Hope you all love them!!
8 month old twins, mom and dad, the park what a good morning. These two weren’t too sure that they wanted to participate in our photo session but through some playing and fun they got on board. They couldn’t have been cuter and this session was pretty awesome since this family was just reunited after a long deployment. These little guys were all about mommy and daddy, big smiles, some shoulder time, the swings and we captured a little piece of their story!
