Happy New Year

In 13 hours I will be boarding a plane out of Atlanta headed to New York City to celebrate the new year in Time Square! YAY!!! I'm sooooo excited!! I'll be there for 3 days experiencing the big apple!

I wanted to write this last blog post of the year since I won't be able to blog in NYC. I'm pretty excited because I started this blog last year on New Years Eve 2007. That means the blog is officially one year old tomorrow! When I started it, I never realized the huge role it would play in my world of photography. It's been fun!

Now that I've completed my new website, my next project is redesigning this blog. It will be SO MUCH BETTER. It will have a fabulous new look, be more user friendly, and be much more organized. I just know you will all love it! It should be complete in early 2009!

As this year ends, and the new one begins... I'd like to wish you all a wonderful new year. Never give up on your dreams... they CAN all come true! :)


PS- I'll have LOTS of NYC pictures for the blog when I get back!

Nothing like family

My family is in town for the holidays and we decided to update the family photo... which is always interesting! The pictures came out really cute...

Here is one of my favorites of my three siblings left to right: Stephen, Hanna and Michael. It truly captures all of their personalities to a T!


My fabulous parents with their 4 children, me included!!


The whole clan. I love my family! They are the best!!

Merry Christmas!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful one filled with love and happiness! I know I will!!

Here's a picture from when I had my well behaved dog sit her tush in snow the other day. :) She is such a good girl.

At every photoshoot, there are ALWAYS those hilarious shots that I snap in between the "good" shots. The ones where because of the awkwardness of being photographed, the subjects in front of the lens feel the need to act like a total goober by doing the craziest things. I LOVE IT!!! The next 3 photos are some examples of what I am talking about from 2 different sessions.

The first 2 are from one of my favorite families in the world! The Guffey fam! I'll be posting their session soon, but for now...

These four brothers are so silly!


Jeff loves to be the center of attention 24/7. You can see that here as he hops in and ruins a perfectly intimate family portrait. ;)


There are plenty more of those goofy ones to come!! I had such a good time shooting their pictures! They crack me up non-stop!

The next one is from Ashi's photoshoot, lots more to come on hers as well.

This is just classic Ashleigh... classic. I love you bee-you-tea-full!

I heart shoes!!

I'm organizing and cleaning out my closet today and I came to realize I have a true obsession! SHOES!! I decided to count every pair that I have. I refuse to tell you the number... just know that it's a whole lot! (I'm not as bad as Carrie Bradshaw though!) I just love shoes! They make you feel so good everytime you get a new pair! I know most women can truly relate to me on this. Men don't get it... it's just part of our DNA! We can't help it! :)

I need a bigger closet. This is one of my favorite pairs!

It's finally here!!

Okay, so I think the website is officially up for everyone (I hope!). It's taken me so long to get it finished but I kept my promise to myself and everyone that it would be up this month!! YAY!! It always feels sooooo good to accomplish your goals! I'm so very proud of the new site and hope you are able to enjoy it!

It's not 100% complete yet, but at least I got it online! Whew! I'll continuously be adding new material to it so always be sure to check back! I know in the past I haven't always been too diligent on keeping my website updated... But I promise this time that won't happen!

There are so many incredible changes coming up in my life which I am so excited about! A HUGE one is that I am finally going into business on my own. A lot of you know I have worked at another photography company for over 7 years. So this is a BIG DEAL! I cannot express how stoked out of my mind I am about this! I always knew it would happen one day... just never knew when! I can honestly say it's happening at the most perfect time in my life. God has truly been SOOOO GOOD to me! I cannot thank Him enough for the many things he has blessed me with. I truly feel like the luckiest girl on this planet. There are so many exciting things to come for me in 2009! As things unfold, I will be sure to share everything that is happening with you all!

For now check out the new website if you haven't already! :) www.dellafiora.com

No time to write much but wanted to post a few of my favorites from a couple's shoot that I did! Fallon and Shawn you guys did so great and I had such a good time with you both!

I love the fall colors in this one!


I just love it when couples make each other laugh. :)



Fallon has such beautiful eyes! I'm so jealous!




Look at her amazing ring!



Love this.



Such a hott couple!!


This shot makes me happy!!! They are so cute together!



And last but not least... this one reminds me of a perfume ad. So sexy!


Fallon and Shawn, you guys are amazing! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to spend a few hours with you capturing such a special time in your life! :)

Quick update

It's December 1st... I've been on vacation in Atlanta this past week for the Thanksgiving holidays and I did NOT want to come back and face reality! I was really enjoying not working, eating lots of delicious food, sleeping in, and spending time with amazing people. I have SO MUCH TO DO before this month ends... actually, I have to get it all done before Christmas! I'm so excited though because right after Christmas I am hopping on a plane to NEW YORK CITY for New Years! YEEAHH!!! I am soooo pumped! That is going to be such an amazing trip and I am geeked out of my mind about it!

ANYWHO-- I just wanted to let you know that I plan on launching my new website before December is over! I'm SUCH a perfectionist and the reason it's taking me so long to finish it is because I never feel like it's good enough, or complete. So I've just decided that I am just going to launch it even if I don't feel like it's done. No more putting it off, or excuses. Just going to do it. Period.

Wish me luck because this next month is literally going to be the busiest month my life has ever seen! Here we go!
