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.
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 ❤
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.
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!
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!

So there is a saying out there; All because two people fell in love. Well that is the story behind this great fun family session. All because these two fell in love there is a great story of family, friendship, goofiness, and look at how it has grown over the years! They have added son in laws and grandchildren. We spent a very warm afternoon on the golf course outside their vacation condos posing, playing, and laughing. These are my favorite kind of sessions.
