What is a family looking for in a photography session and how do they find it? There are different levels of talent and experience, there are different art forms and perspectives so it is important to find that photographer that can deliver what you envision. I hope I capture that for the families I work with each and every time.
Courtney and I scheduled and rescheduled this session which happens when working in real life but am I ever so glad we got our schedules together. Unbeknownst to me we work our session in on their 7th wedding anniversary which makes it that much more exciting to capture some of what they have experienced and created together.
Boy did we have fun!! I always want to create beautiful pictures but I also strive to have an enjoyable experience so with three little ones in tow we needed to stay moving, keep their attention and have some fun; we did exactly that. Courtney has a beautiful and sweet family full of love and laughter. We captured a little piece of each personality throughout our time together and I wish you all continued happiness!
The Ericksons were on their way out of Twentynine Palms for a military move so we captured some great images for them to commemorate the time here and hopefully help decorate their new home. Family sessions in the Joshua Tree National Park inevitably mean we will be doing some rock climbing, generally more than mom and dad had planned 🙂 ; this session was no different. With little adventurous ones we had fun finding new spots, on new rocks, that we could photograph both the beauty of this family as well as, the amazing desert setting.
As moms we often miss the opportunity to capture ourselves and our relationships with those in our family; it is something that I always encourage my moms to – I myself am bad about it. Mom rocked her portraits like a star in this session. Bet the hubby has one of these in his wallet before too long. We also took a few brief moments to capture mom and dad not as parents but as a couple. These two were fun and endearing to one another creating amazing pictures but also emoting their love and friendship. These are the moments that I live for and are why I am so in love with what I do ❤
Blessings abound. I am getting a new sister! These two hold such a special place in my heart for so many reasons and I can’t wait to officially call Emily my sister.
Adam and Emily share such a fun kind of love. They each bring their uniqueness to the relationship complimenting one another perfectly. As a family we have watched them grow together and it has been wonderful. They make each other laugh, they harass one another (a requirement in our family), and they love each other wholly. These two share a wide variety of exciting activities together from hiking, backpacking, to entertaining their great selection of friends for crazy game nights; they are forever busy and creating new memories. Both settled into great occupations and a beautiful home we can’t wait to watch the next stage of their adventure together.
For my husband and I there are some additional blessings that these two have given us. Our daughter has spent the last year living with them while she is attending college. They have given a gift to all of us that is unrepayable other than to say a 1,000 thank yous. They have given us the rare opportunity to have her grow at this stage of life with great examples while giving her the space to explore as an adult, something that is often difficult for us parents to do. They have taught her about love and relationships beyond just what she has witnessed in our home. They have given her the right balance of freedom and responsibility to continue her adventure into adulthood; for that we are forever grateful.
We are so ready to watch these two “make it official” but have always known that Emily was already ours to love. See you soon! Love you both!
OMG the best job in the world! These two were super cute together and couldn’t take their eyes off of their new son. Away from family as so many of our military families are they were looking to commemorate this time in their lives and share a peek into their new family. We even caught some great baby smiles at the end that will melt the strongest of hearts!
8 month old twins, mom and dad, the park what a good morning. These two weren’t too sure that they wanted to participate in our photo session but through some playing and fun they got on board. They couldn’t have been cuter and this session was pretty awesome since this family was just reunited after a long deployment. These little guys were all about mommy and daddy, big smiles, some shoulder time, the swings and we captured a little piece of their story!
Maggie and Greg were a fun spirited couple that wanted to capture their relationship in an image. We wondered through the Big Canyon Morongo Preserve, making Greg feel a little at home with the marshy setting and we captured some great photos. They were playful, affectionate and had some fun in front of the lens. Enjoy!
As their family’s adventures were taking them across the world to Italy they wanted to capture a piece of their time here in the beautiful desert. Despite the windy conditions they showed dressed in gorgeous colors and ready to have some fun. We did a little climbing, maybe some bribing and most definitely some great picture capturing. Capturing the National Park was important because they enjoyed many times climbing and hiking while stationed here. I’m glad I was able to send a little piece of the desert with them!
These two drove all the way from fort Irwin to hang out with me in Twentynine Palms for their maternity session. They are both super cute and playful so there are lots of images with big smiles and laughter. They welcomed their baby girl into the world yesterday and I can’t wait to meet her!
This family wanted to capture where their little man was today. At an age where sitting still really is never an option we had to adapt and move to capture him with the camera. Okay so we may have tried to trap him as well 🙂 the slide seemed to be the trick that worked. We captured a few quick family shots as well to recognize this part of their lives as they transition into the next.
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!
