Lauren: Bridal/Maternity

Lauren killed two birds with one stone in this session!! She is getting married this May and asked me to shoot her bridal AND maternity photos. I loved it! Maternity is so much fun because I think a woman is SOOOO BEAUTIFUL when she is pregnant so I always have a lot of fun with those sessions. (I have another maternity shoot I will be blogging soon!) And then of course when a woman is all dressed up in her wedding gown she is STUNNING! So how could I not absolutely be in heaven with shooting both!

Lauren completely rocked her shoot! Here are a few of my favorites:

Her dad had this really old phone booth in his house that was so cool!! Of course I had to use it for a shot–

  • Fabulous girl!! you rocked it and shes gorgeous!!!

Happy Wednesday!!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous middle of the week! I recently went on a little mini vacation for a long weekend to the beaches of Destin, Florida and I had a blast! I have always loved that place and definitely wasn’t ready to come back home! I’m a true beach girl at heart. (I secretly have always wanted to be a surfer girl!!) I just love it… the sand, the sun, the waves, mmmm!!! I can’t ever get enough beach! It does absolutely nothing for my hair, but that’s something I’m willing to sacrifice for a nice tan and gorgeous atmosphere! 

Anyways, you know me… I can’t go anywhere without my camera. A photo shoot always seems to present itself no matter where I am in the world. My friend Keesha (you can see her family session I shot last year here — scroll down a bit to see it) who invited me to the beach with her brought her one year old Logan. It was his first time on sand, and he loved it! We did a little shoot of him as well as of one of my really good friend Sheperd’s little girls! See below for a sneak peak of both sessions– (more to come later!) 

We stayed at Destin West which was amazing!! Check out my view from our condo:

We saw this crazy looking jellyfish on the beach! It’s so colorful:

Paris, France

I finally have put together a blog post with several of my shots from Paris. And get ready, because it’s going to be a VERY long one! I sorted through over 2000 pictures that I shot to find my favorites. And let me just tell you– it was NOT easy!! Whew!

So after much thought and many requests from several people… I’ve decided to start selling prints of my work for your home. YAY!! It’s something I never really thought I would do… mainly because I never thought that highly of my own work. But hey, if people like my work that much- why not!? I’m flattered at the idea. Completely blown away!

HOW TO ORDER:
I plan on putting together a seperate website for selling canvases in the near future. But for now you can email your order to: canvasorders@dellafiora.com if you’d like to buy a print! Just be sure to include the print # (the corresponding number will be the one on TOP of the image) as well as what size you want! I’ll send you payment instructions once I receive your order.

PRICING & SIZES:
All photographs are printed with the highest quality in the industry on fine art canvas wrap. Any image can be printed in black and white. Indicate your preference when you email your order. (You will receive a proof in black and white to approve before image goes to print.)

***Custom canvas sizes available. Email your size and you will receive a price quote within 3-5 business days.

Below is a sample of the corner edge of a canvas wrap if you’re unsure what it is:

  • Gina Jacobs

    Amazing! I would love to go there one day!

Ambre: Maternity

Ambre contacted me recently to have her maternity photos taken. She is one of the sweetest people I have met– when she called me to tell me about wanting to have pictures made, she got teary-eyed telling me how her husband is in the military and she planned on sending them to him — which of course made me teary-eyed!! I think military wives are the bravest women out there. I truly admire their courage.

Ambre- you’re AMAZING!!!! I’m so excited for you and your new family!!

She totally rocked her session– here are just a few of my favorites:

Boudoir Special

Have you been considering doing a boudoir session? Maybe thinking it would be a great gift to get for someone? Well now is the time!! I’m currently running a boudoir package special for ONE WEEK ONLY!!! You must book the session by May 1, 2009 and have the session scheduled by June 1, 2009 to receive this offer. This package is usually $350 so you save $100!!!! 

Guys—- if you’re trying to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift– this is it!! What’s better than giving your lady the opportunity to get dolled up for day, feel like a supermodel, and then have fabulous photos taken of her!?! Hey, maybe you could even make a whole day of it and take her out to dinner that night! (wink wink) Not only will she love this gift, but so will you when you get the photos! ; ) You’ll both cherish them forever. I personally can’t think of a better Mother’s Day gift.

And Ladies—- Father’s Day is June 21st… so keep that in mind as well for the perfect gift!! I promise you’ll have so much fun at the shoot that you’ll want to do it again!! 

Please email me at: courtney@dellafiora.com for more details or to schedule your appointment today!!
