When I was contacted to photograph two BFFs for a birthday I was excited to discuss what we could do that would make this session different and special. We decided we would take some shots of them together and add a color session at the end. Unsure of what it was going to be like the girls showed up for a little adventure. We met at some abandoned structures in the desert to give us a little different feel and back drop. With the desire to chronicle this time and this friendship I just asked the girls to hang together and pretend that there wasn’t a camera on them 🙂 Our friendships throughout life become such a piece of who we are. Those that we grow with, share with, cry with, and just simply be with. Everyone should have a BFF photo shoot!
I still have no idea what was said during all the whispering but I know whatever it was they couldn’t keep from laughing and having a good time. There was a little hesitance when the color came out but quickly they found their silliness and began having fun. Both became decorated with beautiful colors! Success was made in capturing this time in each of their lives. Thank you again for letting me spend this time with you all!
So this big guy, Frank the Tank, and I have been hanging out for a while now. I have had the pleasure of photographing his family for years and him since his newborn session! If you look closely you will see he carries the nickname Frank the Tank but he is just a big love except when we feed him cake or try to take his picture. Now in all fairness to him I think his dad conspires against us to get this guy to smile on picture day but that’s ok we always make it work and we always get the picture 🙂 I’m so glad I have been able to watch him grow and look forward to being there when it’s time for his Senior Pictures ❤
So these two were adventurous for their engagement session with me; we met before the sun came up and began our small hike into this beautiful arch! In tow we had some outfit changes, a picnic basket with champagne and chocolate what more could we ask for? These two were fun, loving and produced some amazing images! Thank you for sharing this great time with Memories by Tasha!
Homecomings are always amazing to me both personally and as a photographer. This one was extra exciting as this was the second time I was to be with this family upon return. Due to some personal things for me and scheduling conflicts it came with stress for the client; Jessica handled it all with grace and understanding for my family and I can’t say thank you to her enough. Some images were taken by a friend and edited by me in order to take care of the scheduling conflict but I was able to get one homecoming photographed and switch my focus to the Neuner family. Just tells us a lot about the people that they are and how lucky I am once again to meet such an amazing set of humans; restoration in faith once again.
Okay onto talking about this awesome family and their homecoming. This little man was born not long ago while his daddy was deployed and once again Jessica held down the home front in wait for her man! Often a bit scary for the youngins when their loved one comes back but these three fit right back together as if Nick had never left! The emotion and happiness felt in these images is exactly why I love what I do.
Thank you once again for allowing me to help capture this amazing time in your life.
Homecomings, homecomings, and more homecomings! What a great way to spend a portion of my April. I love everything about homecomings, well maybe sometimes not the long waits, but since these two waited 7 long months for this kiss I don’t think I have too much to say about that. Jessica contacted me before her hubby even left to make sure she captured her first homecoming as a military spouse. As we waited the excitement grew and grew, as the buses came into view she did everything she could to hold back the happy tears but that was not going to happen. As soon as she spotted her man she was off. Welcome home Marine so glad you are together once again!
There is always a special place in my heart for homecomings. I will say it every time there is so much energy and emotion in the air; it’s exciting, it’s nerve wracking, and it’s all about being back together again. These girls were no different. The 3 year old full of energy while she ran and played waiting with her mom full of excitement and nerves. This Marine was able to sneak up behind us in the sea of camouflage and surprise his girls!
We spent the morning in the beautiful weather photographing mini sessions with a little bit of Easter added!! This is a compilation of the 5 sessions together!
