Baby Miss A really gave me a run for my money while shooting her Newborn Portraits. She wanted nothing to do with the camera and was REALLY not a hat girl. Her mama was so patient though and we prevailed. Eventually she did sleep and we pushed through as many poses as we could. In the end this has become one of my favorite sessions because while it didn’t go exactly as planned it still came out great and showed me that sometimes all it takes is patience.
A few months ago I put out a model call for a little Boy newborn for a “nautical” styled newborn portrait session. I carefully prepared all my props the night before and headed over to meet this cute little guy after a long day at the office. When I got there I realized I had left my basket with wraps at home. His mama and I had a good laugh about it and then got on with the session. Baby K just never ceased to amaze me, he was less than a week old and knew his name. Every time I said it he would look right at me, then when he got tired he just went to sleep, as if to say no big deal ill just sleep you do your thing. I hope you enjoy the below images as much as I enjoyed taking them.
Newborn photography has very quickly become my passion, I love being able to provide parents with photographs of these moments that are all too fleeting, from the tiny little toes to the wispy hair these things change way to fast. Newborn photography allows us to memorialize a time when our children change daily so that we can look back on it and remember.

Last sunday I got to photograph one of the most smiley happy babies I have ever seen. His mama wanted to get some pudgy baby pictures and I was only too happy to oblige. We had a great time right up until dad got home. At which point little mr S decided he had had enough and just wanted some daddy time. To mom and dad I just want to say thank you for inviting me into your home and letting me help you capture this moment in time that does not last nearly long enough.
I had the honor this weekend of getting to take newborn portraits of an adorable little boy. He was amazing through the whole session and only cried when we tried to put a hat on him that was a tad to small. Needless to say that hat came off pretty quickly and then he was happy again. We were able to get several wide awake baby pictures, During this time I tried to get some of the really cute propped up baby pictures however found that this did not work so well when the little man was awake. He was just a bit to wiggly. I had a lot of fun with this shoot since I love babies ( but who doesn’t) and getting to hold and coo with one while taking pictures is amazing. We did most of the photo ession inside in his nursery so that he would remain warm and secure in his surroundings and I think this worked out quite well. There was a large window that allowed plenty of natural light and I also used my fill flash to make sure that we didn’t have many harsh shadows. We did Head outside for some family portraits and the little guy promptly fell asleep but that was ok once we got back inside I was able to try and get the propped up baby portrait again and it worked much better. the center picture below is what came out of the little sleeping man. If you have any questions or would like to book a Photo session with me please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook .
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them. For more info on portrait pricing or packages please see my Facebook page or http://www.dellamortphotography.com.

I often get the urge to snap pictures when I have no shoots lined up or during the winter when it is harder to do outdoor pix with people due to the weather, my solution, Landscape and Nature Photography! I will go for a walk or hike or just get outside. There are many things even living is a small town like I do that you can take pictures of, and it helps to hone your skills not only in composition but in editing if need be as well. you can often times find me wandering around my home town with either my Point and shoot Samsung in tow or My canon t3i. either way I am almost always ready to snap a picture of that beautiful flower, or the Fall trees, Or the river overflowing its banks due to the Oregon Rain :). Some of the pictures that I take I put up on my Deviant art account found here. I put those up for sale as well so that people can get prints of them or some specialty items. But mostly they are just being taken for the joy of taking pictures. I have become someone who when they see a beautiful flower rather than picking it and enjoying it for a few days I take pictures of them. Then I can go back and look at them when ever I want, not that I don’t still enjoy getting flowers from my hubby every now and then.
I also like to go out and do night landscape and water shots. Some of these done with long exposures and low iso can come out really beautifully. It makes the water take on a smoky quality and if you are shooting a cityscape you get tracer lights from the tail lights. Then there is the long exposure shots taken just after the sun goes all the way below the horizon. These shots kind of take on a surreal quality. The colors end up being over saturated and really bright yet there is only a ribbon of light coming over the horizon, even the dark night sky is more blue than black.
Another thing that I like about nature photography is that you really don’t have a whole heck of actual control over the lay out of your subject. It really makes you work to get the good pictures.
If you would like to reach me you can find me on facebook by clicking here , or at my deviant art account mentioned before, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also have some of my Landscape and Nature Photos for sale on my Deviant Art account that can be found here.
I have kind of become addicted to macro. 🙂 I just wish I could afford a seriouse macro lens instead of using the macro rings that I have but I dont so I make due with what I Have. I generaly use my 18-55 lens when doing macro as i can get in closer to my subject that way and when you add one of the rings you can get in even closer as it shortens the focal depth. I do have some of my work for sale on my deviant art account that can be found here. One day I would like to get some super macro shots of bugs and such but for now I busy myself with things like you see below.
I am sorry this photography offer is no longer valid. My photography prices are available here
I would love to do Wedding photography But need to get more experience, before I start advertising myself as a wedding photographer. At this point I am looking for couples to give me a chance to shoot their weddings. I realize this is a large step as this is one of the most important days of your life, I have included several photos that I have done in this post so that you can see what I have done already. The best part about this is I am looking to do it for free so that I can use the photos for my portfolio. If you would like an additional photographer with more wedding experience I can recommend a great photographer in Lindsay at Royal Rose Photography she has let me come with her to the wedding where the pictures in this blog were taken. I love catching the special moments during a wedding such as the kiss, or the bride being walked down the aisle and given away, and want to give you pictures that you will cherish for all the years to come. I know this sounds cheesy but this is one of the main reasons I decided to try to break into photography, to help people remember the one of the most special times in their life. If you would like to give me a chance to help you remember your wedding you can contact me at my facebook or at my email email@example.com. One other thing to keep in mind is I do work a reg 40 hr work week as well so your wedding will need to either be after 6 during the week or on sat or sun for me to be able to do pictures for you.
