These are one of the gifts that I feel honored everyday to share with my clients. The moments that I spend with a family while capturing all the little details are always amazing. Parenthood is an adventure and these few moments are the mere beginning but will last a lifetime adorned on the walls of family.
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.
I love, love, love these sessions. As a mom they absolutely pull on my heartstrings and now that my girls are older the opportunities for these things are fewer. With Mother’s Day fast approaching I am reminded of the special connection between a parent and a child, between a mother and her baby. When Leslie contacted me to schedule this special session I was excited to help commemorate her very first Mother’s Day and when two beauties show up like this magic happens. This session gave me all the feels. Enjoy!

This is such an exciting time in our youths’ lives. They are preparing for their tomorrows, enjoying their todays, and trying to figure it all out along the way. This beautiful young lady was so much fun to photograph. We wondered around the Morongo Preserve and Pioneertown to capture these fantastic images. She wasn’t too sure about being the focus of the camera at first but as you can see she was a natural. Both beautiful inside and out she is looking forward to her future all while serving God. A wonderful soul.
Aren’t these guys the cutest? A new family in love with each other and photographs. Of course one of my favorite combos! I have known Becky for a long time so it was awesome to meet her hubby and the princess of the family. We spent some time capturing this families bond, catching up and playing dress up!
So this family and I have had a long photographic history with one another. I began photographing their story when Maddie was a newborn. We have had many sessions together since, her momma loves pictures! Hilary wanted to do a stylized session so we ran with some great ideas. I ordered 50 yards of tulle and began designing. This was my first session ever where I made all of the clothing that they were wearing. We had plans, great plans. Sunset, gorgeous dresses it was going to be perfection. We also had a two year old. She let us know the moment we attempted to put her dress on that she was the boss. Hilary had already let me know she wanted real; she wanted to tell their story, the one that they are living right here and right now. She wanted all of it. So that is what we did and every image is perfect. Every image has a moment, a memory attached to it and for that I am grateful. I love my job! I love perfect imperfection!

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.
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 ❤
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.
