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!

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! ❤
Are you planning a visit to our beautiful desert? Don’t forget to schedule your session with Memories by Tasha Photography to capture the scenery forever.
So behind on blogging so be on the lookout for lots of catch-up.
Meet Kenny! From Twentynine Palms High School Class of 2013 this young man is now Norwich University Class of 2017 and soon to be in transitioning into the Air Force. So much to be proud of for himself and his family. I was able to capture a few photographs to celebrate all this hard work and next adventure!

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 ❤
Cuteness and love were in the air. Couples sessions are always a fun adventure. As a photographer I want to capture their relationship, their time uninterrupted but as a client they are so aware that a camera is there photographing them and their every move. Taking the time to slow down and work together to achieve a natural session is so important.
Kathryn contacted me before the holidays to set up a sunset engagement session; her one request Joshua Trees! I love out desert and I love to capture clients that are excited about it’s beauty so of course I was ready to oblige. 15 years I have been here and I still believe there is nothing like our sunrises and sunsets.
We met at a hot spot in Joshua Tree before traveling to a desert location so we took advantage of getting to know each other a little and of the great textures at the JT Saloon. I was quickly aware I would have to remind these two to look at the camera every once in awhile because they were fairly smitten with one another.
Kathryn from the east coast and Jack from the west are here in Twentynine Palms courtesy of the Marine Corps but they are enjoying their time here, together awaiting the next adventure. A fall wedding to plan on the other coast and possibly an upcoming move they are fully learning all about Marine Corps family life.
Playful, flirty and fun would be my best description of these two and their session. I asked Jack a couple of questions, “Do you ever give her piggy back rides?” His response, ” Depends on where we are going.” It was stated with such confidence no one would have guessed the real answer NEVER. So we tried it. I also asked him, “Do you have a thing, you know a special sweet kiss or something?” Well what followed was a silly rendition of kissing but oh so sweet.
I wish you many years of happiness and joy! May life and the Marine Corps take you on many adventures together. Congratulations Jack and Kathryn!
I strive in each session to tell a story, to create a lasting memory of this time in someone’s history. Senior sessions are a chance for that young adult to express themselves as they are learning about who they are and who they want to be. It is an in-between two paradigms in time for the senior and for the parents. A time of great hope and sorrow. When I get the chance to capture this for a senior and their parents it is a great privilege.
Kevin and I set out in the morning with some ideas but with no certain direction. We found ourselves visiting Lucky Park where he spent many hours in the pool as a swimmer who has achieved many awards. We spent some time at the iconic 29 Palms Inn, photographing near the fall colors and only natural body of water in Twentynine Palms. Kevin wanted a couple of images taken with the metal art sign that decorates our highway and honors our city’s namesake. Lastly we climbed some rocks and captured his personality amongst the beauty of the desert. We even played with his hot rod mustang and added it into a few images too.
Kevin is an avid swimmer. He was ready to represent his high school and class with his letterman jacket. Also an appearance his ASB shirt. We even took sometime to sport his school colored beanie to add a little bit of teenager into our session.
In June I get to hang with Kevin and his family as he walks the stage to receive his diploma. Such an exciting time in life for all!
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.
Dad knew he had to take an opportunity to get family pictures as these kids are growing so fast and are so busy. They were all champs braving the freezing wind to capture these images for their dad. We made quick work of it and knocked out some awesome keepsakes for their walls.
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.
