Family Choices with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Family Photographer

Twentynine Palms Family Photographer - Yucca Valley Family Photographer - Uptain

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!

Matt & Caitlyn with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Photographer

Love when I get to spend a beautiful desert sunset with two sweet people celebrating their love.  Caitlyn is visiting her Marine and couldn’t stop enjoying the beauty here.  Matt was in awe too but honestly he was quite distracted by his Caitlyn! ❤

Life has come full circle in many ways and I am often reminded that as the young adults that I have watched grow up in this community come to me to photograph their newest of adventures.  The love, excitement and work that are ahead for these will give them some of life’s greatest joys.  Thank you Roberta for having me photograph such an amazing time in your’s and Theron’s love story.  Truly beautiful!

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 ❤

 

2017 Announcements with Memories by Tasha Photography – Twentynine Palms Photographer

Happy New Year! a few days late…. 2017!  I don’t even know how it is 2017.  The years seem to pass faster the older I get so I realize more every day how precious my own moments, memories are.  How excited I am to be invited to capture yours.  With the fear of sounding slightly corny I truthfully imagine your future children, your grandchildren peering upon these images years from now.  Something great happens when my children spread a box of pictures on the floor.  They giggle. They remember.  They ask questions.  They connect with these images and their memories.

This business started as a hobby that grew through out the years.  Never could I have imagined where it would be today, all that it would give me or all that it would mean to my soul.  But it replenishes my being regularly.

With the new year I have a few new personal and professional goals.  No different than most every body else.  I won’t be sharing them all today but I do have two that I can’t wait to tell you about…….

Life, friendship, and business has allowed me to begin a partnership with another local business.  Desert Birth and Wellness will display pieces of moments captured during maternity, birth and newborn sessions on their walls.  Through our collaboration with one another clients can find one more piece to their birth story in one place, whether it be they need photography services or anything (almost) prenatal, birth, and postnatal related we can connect them to the right professionals.  I will proudly provide maternity, birth, and newborn packages to clients of Desert Birth & Wellness; with a free print for mentioning them!  Of course I am always open to discussing any of your other photography needs.  This partnership also includes the opportunity to utilize a space for holiday minis so be on the lookout for something fun soon!

The other big news that I want to share is that we have recently purchased a project that will eventually be the Memories by Tasha Photography Studio space.  I will still do most work outside, on location in the beautiful place we call home but will be able to provide a studio location for newborns, childhood milestones, holiday children’s minis, headshots and boudoir photography.  There will be some awesomeness when it is grand opening time so make sure to always keep those eyes open!

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

Twentynine Palms Children's Photography - Yucca Valley Children's Photography - Joshua Tree Children's Photography - Key

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
