Hey there! I'm Amy Dawnelle. I'm a baby photographer, newborn photographer, maternity photographer, family photographer and senior photographer in the Temecula and Murrieta valley. My photo studio is located on Murrieta Hot Springs Rd. I'm well know for my maternity portraits, baby photography and newborn photos, as well as family portraits, senior portraits, business photos, real estate head shots and portraits for online dating or profile pictures. My images have been described as unique, casual, relaxed, fun, easy and emotional. My goal as a photographic artist is not only to create striking wall art, but to build a strong connection and relationship with my clients. I'll be there to capture all of the unique times and special moments for your family. If you're looking for a session to showcase your personality and emotion, look no further. I've been photographing for 14 years and I'm a PPA recognized Master Portrait Photographer.
As a newborn photographer and baby photographer, here is where I shine. Any photographer will tell you photographing a newborn baby isn't for everyone. It takes safety, skill, experience, patience and of course love. We have such a small window of time in a baby's first days to capture each itty bitty detail. And I know, you've been imagining and waiting for this moment for 9 long months for. The excitement of a new born baby can be overwhelming and choosing the right photographer can be confusing. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have. I'd love the chance to talk. It takes hard work, dedication and genuine love to be the best at what you do.

Maternity Photography is where I found my start as a professional photographer. I've always loved being pregnant. It was such an AMAZING time in my life. Creating a life. Feeling that little person move and grow. Feeling an insanely strong bond with someone I've never met. Seeing the physical change in my body and only caring about that new little person about to make their mark in this family and out world. This is why it's so important to me to capture that beautiful maternal form. sessions are captured in the studio or outdoors on location. My favorite style is simple and classic. Showcasing your beautiful baby bump with a Vanity Fair style.
And suddenly we're a family... My career started with maternity portraits, which lead to baby photography and more babies and more babies and more babies! Suddenly, we have a beautiful blooming family and life is changing every day. Now this is my favorite part. When this career began I had no idea that my clients were giving me a chance to be a part of their families. That, I was given the chance to fall in love with their children and see them grow. This by far is the BEST part of my job in every way. Creating art and capturing these unique little personalities each year.
I will admit that I haven't grown up, but I did graduate high school! I remember back then, being so scared and so excited all at once. It was important to me to be unique and true to myself. I remember wondering how I was going to make a difference in this world. So, raise your hand if you're senior portraits were less than awesome? Yeah.... me too! This is where my passion for senior portraits come in. Senior photos are all about who your senior truly is. It's expressive, it's about style. It's capturing the real you. Let me know if you'd like to know more about my senior portrait sessions.
As you have probably noticed I have a few specialties in photography. Headshots would be one of them. Headshots are very similar to photographing families. The most important part of a strong branding image is what the image is communicating. Your expression, pose, clothing choice and lighting are all key factors when communicating with your potential clients or audience. Headshot sessions are useful for business, acting and even online dating or profile pictures.
