THE MIN FAMILY


I met the Min family out at one of my favorite venues to shoot at (also where Ryan and I were married!) The Humphrey's Estate. The landscaping and unique architecture was the perfect backdrop for this families' simple maternity session. 

Congratulations!! We can't wait to meet your baby girl soon!

The Schied Family


Last Christmas I decided to make  "separating work from home" my new years resolution. It was something I so desperately needed to do, but anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love interior design and I love my home (but especially workspace) to be pretty! I like to think a pretty workspace inspires me, and maybe it does, but ultimately I think that may just be an excuse to buy pretty things. So I started doing some research of how I was going to renovate one of our extra bedrooms into my office. I fell in love with the look of the white "Bedford" corner desk from Pottery Barn but didn't love the price tag so much. Although worth every penny, this particular desk was SO out of my budget so I started scanning my local Craigslist in search of a used one. To my surprise, The Schied Family had just the one I was looking for! They helped me stay in budget with the funds I had set aside for my dream desk and graciously accepted the rest of the payment with a Stevie Dee Photography gift certificate! Turns out they were also in desperate need of updated family photos! So...that is how I met this sweet family! Crazy small world, huh?

We made the trek to Owl Creek, a quaint farm located on the outskirts of Temecula Wine Country. I absolutely adore this venue and think it made the perfect scenery for their natural, rustic style!

I feel so fortunate to have met this family and feel blessed to have the opportunity to create memories that will be a part of their family forever.

Alicia and Chris were married in 2014 and began their newlywed life together traveling the world. Chris is a local real estate agent and Alicia works in administration for a local college, currently residing in Temecula, Ca with their two dogs, but they couldn't wait to start a family! We met them at the French Valley Airport for a travel themed baby announcement to surprise their friends and family with the big news! Now, they embark on a whole new adventure, parenthood.

Congratulations Alicia + Chris! We are so happy for you and can't wait to watch your family grow!

We met the Hecht Family out in Old Town Temecula a few weekends ago and had a blast with these guys! This was my first time doing a morning session in Old Town and I forgot how crazy this little town can be. The Farmers Market was in full swing with vendors and booths set up everywhere, meanwhile an outdoor event was happening at the Theater (usually my go to spot!)

I always like to meet my clients at the Old Town Theater because it's a landmark everyone knows and is easy to find. Because of the event going on at the theater my favorite spots were not available. I think most photographers would be freaking out on the inside if they were in my shoes but I actually like when this happens. It forces me to get really creative and use new areas I may not have used otherwise.

Lisa mentioned that she wanted an urban/industrial look to her photos so after we took one set of photos on the side of the theater I went around the back to find an open area with no vendors...and I think I found the jackpot!

Thank you Lisa, Sean, Landon and Brooklyn for an awesome shoot, you guys rocked it! Can't wait to photograph your family again sometime soon!

 

XO,

Stevie

Welcome Baby Joshua


We love connecting and creating relationships with our clients so we can be there to document every life event. It is my favorite thing to watch families grow and capture their favorite memories along the way...It was no different with The Taylor Family!

We met the Taylor Family back In November of last year when they joined us for a Holiday Mini Session and were so excited when they called us wanting to schedule a maternity session a few months ago! You can see their maternity photos here

We have a traveling newborn studio and set up a small work space in our clients' home. We create a hybrid newborn session, mixing posed newborn photos with lifestyle photos around the home.

Our clients love our hybrid newborn session because they can sit back and relax in the comfort of their own home while we create beautiful memories that are completely unique to them!

Congratulations Taylor Family! You truly have a beautiful family and we can't wait to capture the next milestone!

XO,

Stevie

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHYANNE


We met the Dittenber Family back in December of last year when Christina saw us out in the park during our Holiday MIni Sessions. She ran up to us and asked for a business card and scheduled her family photos in the new year when Shyanne was only 6 months old. We had a blast working with them so naturally we were so excited when they called and scheduled a photo session for Shyanne's 1st Birthday! It's amazing how much these kids grow in such a short amount of time. Shyanne is such a gorgeous little girl, the camera just loves those blue eyes of hers!

Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens is located in Fallbrook, Ca and is such a neat little place to visit on the weekends! We thought this would be the perfect setting for Shyanne's photo session. Rickety Swank Vintage Rentals came in and set up two different styled scenes for us, first this sweet little teepee. And seriously, that birthday hat though. Love!

Shyanne's birthday theme is "Country Fair" so instead of smashing a traditional birthday cake, we bought an award winning Myrtle Berry Pie from the Bloom Cafe and let her rip into it!

And of course the pie stand from Rickety Swank Vintage Rentals was just too darn cute!

Happy 1st Birthday Shyanne!

GEORGE + IVANA + ALEX + COSTA


Earlier this week we met this adorable family at Owl Creek Farms and had an absolute blast! Our session was full of running, swinging, riding bikes, investigating bugs and basically anything that could help keep our little man Costa occupied. He did so well and did a fantastic job of keeping us all on our toes!

We absolutely love our vendors and love a good ol' fashioned styled scene. Nancy and Kelly from Touched by Time Vintage Rentals go above and beyond every time for our clients and we absolutely loved the pieces they brought for us!

Thank you Ivana + George for choosing us to capture your family photos, we can't wait to work with you again!

OLIVIA & EVELYN


We get so excited when families want to do an in home lifestyle newborn session. Don't get us wrong, we love the cute little baskets and baby bonnets, but we also love to document the family as if we are just a fly on the wall. This is why we mix our newborn sessions! We bring backdrops, baskets and props for the cute posed photos but we also incorporate a lifestyle style.

We have been photographing this sweet family since their oldest daughter, Olivia's, newborn session a few years ago, and were thrilled to hear about their new addition, Miss Evelyn.

Congratulations on your beautiful (& growing) family!

THE TAYLOR FAMILY


We met the Taylor Family back In November when we took their Holiday Photos and instantly fell in love with their son Nathan. He has the most vibrant blue eyes and a smile that can light up a room! They are such a sweet (and growing) family and we were thrilled when they called us up a few months ago and told us they were expecting baby #2!

We took them out to one of our favorite rustic venues in town, Two Sister's Farms, which is a real working farm in town.

I had a blast with you guys and can't wait to see you in September to photograph the new baby!

temeculanewbornphotographer-6When we arrived at the McCarthy's new home we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of natural light filtering through their windows, truly a photographers dream! We set up a small work space in their living room and nursery and captured some of the sweetest images of this new family.

 Complete with pink striped walls, white distressed furniture and incredible detail, this Alice in Wonderland nursery by far is one of the best I've ever seen! We may or may not be just a little bit jealous...

temeculanewbornphotographer-4temeculanewbornphotographer-5temeculanewbornphotographer-7temeculanewbornphotographer-2temeculanewbornphotographer-8temeculanewbornphotographer-9Isla was such a sweet girl and definitely has some of her own personality already. She preferred to stretch her arms and legs out of the wraps and the sound of mom washing dishes in the kitchen sink over my acoustic lullaby soundtrack. The "kitchen sink" white noise was definitely a first for me!

Richard and Jessica, thank you for letting me into your home, your family and your hearts! It truly is a blessing to capture these precious moments in time for you to enjoy forever. Wishing you all the best in your new journey together as a family and am looking forward to working with you again in the future!

With Love,
