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

This Is Alyssa http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2018/1/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!

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

Mother Daughter Beach Session | Murreita Photographer | La Jolla http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/7/mother-daughter-beach-session-murreita-photographer-la-jolla

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!

Summer Maternity Sesison | Temecula - Maternity Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/7/summer-maternity-sesison-temecula---maternity-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.

Welcome Audrey Lynn- Video http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/2/welcome-audrey-lynn Welcome newborn baby Audrey Lynn. Now, normally as a newborn photographer we want to see your newborn baby between 5 and 7 days of life. It's the most ideal time to get those sleepy cuddly poses. After 7 days your baby starts to wake up and stretch out. Typically, they just don't want to be put in those tight cuddlie poses. Audrey was one moth old during her session and did just wonderfully. If you missed the 5-7 day window that's ok. Your baby's portraits will be beautiful at any stage.

The Maternity Experience- Video http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2017/2/the-maternity-experience If you've ever wondered what a maternity portrait session would be like here's a little preview of a few maternity portrait sessions. Before your session we'll talk about your style, modesty level and some of the inspirational maternity images that you've seen. I like to design your session uniquely around your style. I would probably describe my photography technique as romantic and modest. Some of my clients will photograph in the nude for the silhouette look. I use heavy shadows to accentuate the belly and hide all of the private parts. :)

Summertime Maternity Portraits | Temecula Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2016/9/summertime-maternity-portraits-temecula-photographer  

I've been photographing maternity portraits since about 2004. Traditionally I have photographed maternity portraits in studio, but lately the trend has been outdoor portraits. Of course I love the look of natural, organic maternity images. And this couple was just perfect to showcase. 

 
These sessions are always scheduled one hour before sunset. That's how we get that amazing backlit sunflare. In my opinion, it's the most perfect and flattering light. If you're thinking of doing an outdoor portraits session, let's chat. Color combinations and clothing choices are no mistake. Planning is important!

Spring Time Bat Mitzvah | Temecula Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2016/8/spring-time-bat-mitzvah-temecula-photographer This is actually a combination of a couple sessions. We did a mini session in studio to honor their daughters bat mitzvah. And since the family would be getting all dressed up we did a family portrait session before the celebration. What I love about this portrait session -obviously the colors. I'm a sucker for blues. But also the contrast between nature and formalwear. There's something about it I just adore! The favorites are always the most natural relaxed family arrangements. We all love the cuddle poses :). I can't remember the exact month, but the fields are looking green from springtime to the beginning of summer time.

Autumn Senior Portaits | Murrieta Senior Portrait Photographer http://temeculaphotographer.net/blog/2016/8/autum-senior-portaits-murrieta-senior-portrait-photographer This senior portrait session is taken in a few different locations. Again, the combination of clothing choices and location is no mistake. When we chat before hand I can make a perfect plan for your clothing choices and the  locations that will compliment your style. 

 
Believe it or not these senior portraits were taken in the fall. It always seems to look warm and sunny here.
