There is so much that happens behind the scenes for a photographer after the session is over. The desired affect is to get the image s close to perfect within your camera but there are some magical things that are done right here on my computer. Above is my nephew – who of course I feel is perfect in every way – as I think about his parents hanging these images on their wall I want there to be a simplicity in looking at his details at the tiny things that are so precious while he is this itty bitty. Through editing I simply want to remove distractions and create a cohesive image.
If you watched my work and the direction of it over the years I hope you have continued to see what truly matters, connection. I want there to be a connection in every image I deliver so that is what I strive for. When I bring the images home and look at them on my computer screen I want to feel the connection between the subjects or with me and the camera. Once I have that I already have a beautiful image through editing I just hope to enhance what is already there.
Editing is as much of the art form as the time behind my camera. It takes time and passion to create the final photograph that I deliver but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
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.
Thank you for choosing Memories by Tasha Photography. Can’t wait to see you in 2017!
When Karrie asked me to work with her on a fitness shoot I was excited to help. She has been working very hard to prepare herself, her body, and mind to be ready for business and competition. Recently starting her own business KLB Fitness to help others meet their health and fitness goals when we shot this session she was also preparing herself for her first competition. This was a first session of this type for both of us so we gathered ideas and worked together to create this amazing body of work. Congratulations Karrie!
Another beautiful senior session photographed in our scenery that never gets enough credit. Taylor is a well-rounded adventurous young lady. I have had the pleasure to watch her as she shined across the stage as an experienced and funny actress. We have all heard her voice across the radio waves and she is a talented cross country runner. We had an extremely fun session while she was a good sport in the cold and windy desert weather. Taylor’s mom is going to have a hard time choosing favorites as this girl gave me more shots than I could have ever asked for!!

Have I said lately how blessed I am to be invited into people’s lives to capture the exciting moments they have? If not let me tell you I am beyond blessed. This young man made the big change many of our military kiddos do; he changed schools just before beginning his senior year. In spirit of loving his circumstances and both schools we photographed his new home with some pieces of his old. With a letterman jacket littered with athletic patches Sam has made himself at home here in Twentynine Palms as a cross country runner and soon to be track athlete. We enjoyed fusing both old and new together in this session as we explored the beautiful Joshua Tree National Park, shared aspects of his love and future – The Marine Corps, found his dad so we could capture the workmanship of both in their love of an oldie but goodie. This session was packed with amazing elements. Thank you Robinson family for allowing me to memorialize these moments in time for your family!

Meet Zach, he is a Yucca Valley High School Senior! His mom and I spent some time planning and working out schedules for this session, it turned out great. Zach plays baseball, rides dirt bikes, and is learning the guitar. He was a fun and energetic young man to work with. He is ready for graduation and plans to head off to college in the fall. We snuck in a family session while we were out there and came up with some great shots of him with his brothers and mama!

Another awesome and individual senior session. This one was unique because we shot the entire session in Jack’s backyard. I’m a bit jealous of the location, it was gorgeous and versatile. This is the third sibling in the house that I have had the pleasure of capturing a senior moment with so of course I was super excited for this session. Then we added the classic car what more could a photographer ask for, oh that’s right a great subject 🙂 Jack and I bummed around looking for different settings and capturing places that are fond to his childhood. Like the climbing he has done with Ranger up that very hill for years. The view of the valley was another important catch for Jack and of course, baseball, his love so we needed to add that to our session. Another fun time photographed and memorialized!!
