Need some portraits? No problem! One of my favorite times. Mama did some serious Etsy shopping! She wanted something unique and special for her daughter. And let me tell you that's what she got!  We dressed this little girl up like a baby doll. There is just something about her little toes. She pointed them like a ballerina through the whole session. It was adorable.

I first met this little guy when he was just a week old http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/5/i-first-met-this-little-guy-when-he-was-just-a-week-old I first met this little guy when he was just a week old. At his one-year session we did portraits with this very same Jersey on. He was absolutely swimming in it! It fits in perfectly right now. And like every other session we just dance around the studio til’ we get some amazing shots.  I just love watching these little people grow!

Oh my gosh! So much love with this family http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/5/oh-my-gosh-so-much-love-with-this-family Oh my gosh! So much love with this family. I don't even know where to start. From the portraits of baby and daddy with dads marine dress uniform Or big brother kissing on his little baby brother. The family portrait of everyone hugging! Mommy just embracing her brand new baby boy. I really cannot figure out which one is my favorite! This one really got me. Here's another baby I'm so excited to watch grow this year. Another one on the first year plan so keep an eye out for his milestones. I'm ready to create some art!

I can't believe a year has come and gone | Birthday Session http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/5/i-cant-believe-a-year-has-come-and-gone-birthday-session I can't believe a year has come and gone for this sweet baby girl. She's grown so fast and here is her birthday session. Simple and sweet with some amazing red and grey color harmony.  I know I will get to see grow up throughout the years.

 

Most parents will ask me “what should I bring to our next session.” My style is simplicity. Of course I have things in the studio that you can use, but if you want your session to be unique and truly your own. Feel free to bring any of the outfits and props that you would like to photograph in. This session is absolutely perfect with a beautiful baby, red balloons and a red tutu dress. It doesn't need much more does it?

Yes, family portraits do include our family dog. http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/4/yes-family-portraits-do-include-our-family-dog Yes, family portraits do include our family dog. Because, absolutely our pets are our family. Of course I was enjoying this session. The lighting was perfect, the couple was beautiful and Charlie wins dog of the year in my book. I didn't even have to pull out all my tricks to get this beautiful pup to smile for me. Are they amazing or what?

 

Spring is one of my favorite times of year to do family portraits. Of course the fall is popular because the holidays are right around the corner. But if you can get your family together for a springtime portrait session. The green grass is tall. The flowers are blooming and the sun is warm and Shining.

Congratulations! Class of 2018.

One Special Day | Maternity Portraits http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/3/one-special-day-maternity-portraits I can't tell you what an honor it was to photograph this couple’s maternity portrait session. Besides being a super emotional experience, we also had a really great time in our little Murrieta Forest. This is their rainbow baby! This session definitely brought a roller coaster of emotions. They were so excited, and counting down the days for their new little one to arrive. At the same time feeling the heartbreak of missing they're first born. I know there's a lot of mommies and daddies out there along with myself that can empathize with the heartbreak and the pure joy that they’re experiencing.

 

I'm excited to meet this new baby and capture all of her wonderful milestones!

Miguel Garcia for Riverside Sheriff 2018 http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/3/miguel-garcia-for-riverside-sheriff-2018 Recently I photographed Miguel Garcia who's running for Riverside sheriff 2018. He needed some head shots for his campaign and some marketing images. So, as we were shooting we were chatting a little bit. I had a lot of questions about his election.

Miguel Garcia IV for Sheriff 2018Miguel Garcia IV for Sheriff 2018Miguel Garcia IV for Sheriff 2018

Well,  what I got was a bit of education on the importance of voting locally. He said that we have roughly over 2 million people living in Riverside County.  At our last Sheriff election, about 174 thousand people voted. There are 1 million people registered. Those statistics shocked me. I'm not going to lie, I'm one of those 1 million that didn't vote and it made me feel a little bit guilty.

What Miguel said to me was... If you want some real change locally. Faster and more efficiently. If you're concerned about your schools, your roads, the general well-being of your community. Voting locally shouldn't be looked over. It's just as important as voting for your nations president. This is where you’ll see change happen quicker.

Needless to say, his head shots came out great. I think we've got some strong images for branding. And, I promised that I will be educating myself and voting this year on June 5th 2018.

The sibling connection http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/3/the-sibling-connection Some of my favorite portraits that I have hanging on my wall are my  kiddos together. There's something about having all of your children in one portrait that just makes your heart melt. I stare at them everyday. And, everyday it never gets old. I just adore them. I take one portrait of my kids every year. I photograph it in the same-ish simple style. It's either a clean white, grey, or tan backdrop. But regardless of how I stylize the session, they always end up making it their own. Which is what I love. I don't really want pictures of silly props and distractions. I just want to see the love and the silliness and the individual personalities of my kidos.  

Newborn Photographer Amy Dawnelle Specializing in Newborn PhotographyNewborn Photographer Amy Dawnelle Specializing in Newborn PhotographyHI! My name is Amy Dawnelle and I'm a newborn photographer in Temecula. My photo studio is in Murrieta California. Newborn photography sessions are captured in my Murrieta photo studio. We hold 1-3 hours for your baby's photo shoot. This is to insure that we have the most relaxed baby and the happiest parents. The most ideal time for a newborn session is between five and nine days. This is how we can achieve those squishy baby poses. However, I'll photograph a baby at any age. No matter what stage your baby is in. My photography is 100% baby lead. I only create images that are comfortable for you and your new little life. My studio is filled with simple baby props, wraps, hats and head bands. You are welcome to use any of the styles that I have or to bring your own. Contact me today if you have any questions. Find Out More

My clients are so lucky! They get to start documenting the sibling connection at the teeny tiny age of 7 days old. Sometimes I get a protective big sister. Sometimes I have a jealous little brother. Sometimes I have a 2 year old that thinks the baby is theirs. Each sibling portrait and their dynamic tells us a different story. I love being the one to document that story.

Baby photography that stands the test of time http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/3/baby-photography-that-stands-the-test-of-time In general, most professional newborn photographers will tell you that they don't photograph newborn babies past 10 days old. Now for sure, I totally agree that photographing at 5 to 7 day old baby makes the job so much easier. Especially when you have expectations of a sleepy cuddly baby in a basket, or just using props in general. But, this baby here was 10 weeks old! And obviously I'm biased. But seriously, aren't these the most amazing images of this family?   There's no way that I could tell them “your baby is too old. I can't photograph you.” Absolutely no way! I would have missed out on such a special moment. I will tell you though, throw all expectations out the window and let's just have a great time.

This session really brought me back. It reminded me of of a time when there wasn't really any expectations or rules for photographing a baby. Normally, I would get a call, a family would want baby pictures and then I took them. The only expectation was beautiful pictures. And That's what I delivered. I felt like I was back in 2004.

With all of the amazing things we can do with baby photography nowadays. I think this is still my absolute favorite. It's simple and it's timeless and it absolutely captures the love, connection and bonding that you have with your newborn baby. Although, I adore modern style baby photography, the kinds with props and stylized outfits. These here are the portraits that I think you will cherish when your baby has grown. The ones that show connection. The ones that stand the test of time.

What do you think? What do you look for with your newborn portraits? When you look at images which one's really grab your heart?  Leave a comment let me know what you think.

Real Estate Headshots In Temecula http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/1/real-estate-headshots-temecula-headshot-photographer

Apparently real estate is doing good right now.  When I start seeing a lot of agents coming through the studio I know the market is good.

Everyone's talking about re-branding. The competition is fierce and your image sells you. That's why getting a strong brand and a strong image is so important right now.  Your image is the first impression and it could be the deciding factor on whether a potential client calls you or finds someone else. Before we start a head shot session I like to talk about what we are selling and how you want your client to feel. To me this one says professional, kind and approachable. What do you think?

This Is Alyssa http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/12/not-a-senior-portrait-session-this-is-alyssa-murrieta---temecula-photographer

This is Alyssa, so technically this was not a senior portrait session, but we stylized it that way so that's what we're calling it. Alyssa just had her 13th birthday and mom wanted to give her a really unique birthday present.  A portrait session for your birthday, how cool is that? She says it's been forever since they've done photographs.

So this hat.... I know right!? Stinken adorable.  I love accessories in a senior portrait session! After we meet up in Old Town, we were looking through all of her outfit changes. Mom says. "I forgot to bring the hat!" I say, "we need that hat!" It was a real emergency!

So, Alyssa and I start the session and mom's on the phone with dad. 911 style, Dad drops everything and rushes down to Old Town for our hat emergency.

As Alyssa and I are shooting an exaggerated model style strut down the sidewalk. Dad pulls up in the middle of Front Street mom runs out and grabs the hat and off we go! Thanks dad for saving the day! We all owe you!

I'd love💕 to hear what you think.  Please leave a comment.

Playing Dress up | Temecula Photography | Murrieta Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/8/playing-dress-up-temecula-photography-murrieta-photographer Seriously one of my favorite Stage Moms ðŸ˜‚ eeeeverrrrr ! She always has the best ideas. I thought the outtakes were just as sweet as the portraits. I love the way she's looking at her mom. Like, "I've got this Mom." 😂

I've been photographing this baby girl since she was days old. I'm so thankful I get to share this session because what an amazing idea! Right? She's all dressed up in mommy's wedding dress which is insanely adorable. Then, after the session mom will be donating her wedding dress to an organization that makes dresses for babies that have passed away. It's heartbreaking but such a loving and thoughtful gesture. I'm so happy we did this one!

Celebrating Women - Veronica | Temecula Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/8/celebrating-women---veronica-temecula-photographer

I know what it's like to have to convince myself to stand in front of that camera. To not over analyze or be critical of myself. To throw away those nerves and relax. Really, to love me just enough to embrace and celebrate what I've got!

That's just what these Celebrating Women sessions are all about. It's not really boudoir. And not exactly glamour. It's just feeling pretty, having fun and feeling safe enough to come out of your shell.

All it takes to be beautiful on the outside is to be true to who you are on the inside. That's who I'm capturing. That's the portraits I'm creating. 

❤️ Thank you Veronica

I can't remember but I think this might be the fourth or fifth time I have photographed these lovely ladies. Each time it's so much fun because mom is always clowning around 😂.

If you're anything like me, this is one of those sessions that I've always wanted to do and never made time to do it. I'm so happy Tausha made this a priority and scheduled a mother-daughter session at the beach. It came out amazing and I know they'll enjoy their photo box collection forever! And I think it's time to book my mommy and me session too! Time to look for a photographer!

I met Kristi at the Temecula Valley Birth & Baby Fair in March.  She had the slightest little bump then, so I was excited to see her for her big baby belly for her maternity session this summer. Since we were doing an outdoor shoot she brought her own dresses. And she picked the absolute perfect colors for the location. The weather was just right, the sun was golden and the wind blew her hair just perfectly. It was a great evening and I can't wait to meet her precious little newborn baby!*Please!

Bar Mitzvah Portraits | Murrieta Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/5/bar-mitzvah-portraits-murrieta-photographer We took Ari to a local park here in Murrieta to do portraits for his bar mitzvah. Just a quick mini session to capture this special time. Dad took advantage of this time to relax and take a little needed nap in the grass. But Mom was so excited to watch her boy being photographed. It was so special to see her excitement. She kept saying "Ari, you're so handsome!" I know,  It's bittersweet to watch our babies grow up.... I feel a little lucky to be a part of this special time for them.
