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.
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!

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!
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!

I am super excited to blog this session. When mom and I met to plan her twin boys senior session she read me the warning label; most moms with boys do. They will cooperate but they are less than excited to spend a morning in front of the lens. None the less we talked about their personalities, interests and activities….. boy did we have an eventful, personality filled session planned. Both boys are swimmers for the high school but with it being winter that wasn’t one of our options so instead we began our session with some green at Lucky Park. I have to say upon meeting Jacob and Jeremy I was ready for a session filled with great photographs, lots of smiles and some adventurous new locations! They did not disappoint. While we hit some of the regular hotspots in town we also hiked to a small secret location where Jeremy had spent some of his summer time while in an internship with the Joshua Tree National Park. We hiked in, found more gorgeous locations and set to capturing a small piece of Jeremy’s history. Next on our list was to commemorate Jacob’s hard work as a Fire Explorer with the Twentynine Palms’ Fire Department. They were nice enough to let us in so Jacob could show off some of his dreams and memories; they also shared soot so we could catch him in some realistic images. These two were super fun and we captured so many great images that I may have overshared but enjoy! I think by the time we were done they were okay with being in front of the lens.

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!

One more high school senior, meet Paige! This wildcat plays tennis, basketball, and softball; in all her spare time this beauty is a firefighter explorer. After high school she will be attending college to continue her passion for fire fighting and helping people. Her mom and I have known each other for a few years now so it has been a pleasure to watch Paige grow up and what fun us three girls had while traipsing through the basin looking for great spots. Paige picked one of my favorite places to start her shoot, the Whitewater Preserve and after that they were good sports when we stopped at random locations! I hope they are as pleased with the results as I am. Congratulations to yet one more great Twentynine Palms Senior!

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!!

Meet Mercedes, a Yucca Valley High School Senior and beauty! This high school senior has big plans! She will be attending school to be a dental assistant in the fall with plans to continue her education after that. She was voted as the Heart Throb for her yearbook stand outs, any confusion as to why? We had a lot of fun adventuring in the Morongo Preserve and around Yucca Valley.
