Our first beach portrait session of the 2012 season in Cape May was with an extended family with five beautiful grown daughters and their families. Each daughter prettier than the next – they really should model as a family. Mom and dad are truly blessed. Cape May Point never disappoints. It’s one of our favorite locations for family beach portraits in Cape May. We’re excited for the coming season and seeing the beaches recover from Hurricane Sandy. Happy Easter everyone and God Bless!
This was a second session creating beach portraits for the growing Forman Family in Ocean City, NJ. As photographers, we love how they really embrace our lifestyle sessions and the variety of candid and playful pictures they allow us to capture. It definitely made for special holiday cards with many images to share with their family and friends.
We have so many great photo sessions from last season that we still need to share with you! Here is one of a darling little girl in Ocean City who really had us giggling during the whole shoot! She made being a photographer really easy that evening with her charm and love for the beach!
What an absolutely gorgeous evening we had for a family beach session in Cape May, NJ. Dad was blessed with 5 beautiful daughters!
We truly enjoyed photographing Lauren. She was so sweet and lovely to be around. Beautiful, accomplished student, standout athlete / captain of her soccer team and volunteer. There is nothing she cannot achieve!

It’s great when our senior clients ask us to photograph a family shoot of the whole extended family! We do a lot of family reunion / extended family photo shoots at the beach. It just seems like the place where the families come together to create memories. We photographed Ashton’s senior pictures in Stone Harbor where her parents have a home and I knew after meeting her and her mom, it was going to be a fun crowd. They were the kindest family to work with… what a pleasure! Also…as you can see in the pictures we have some Phillies fans!
I am excited to share this session we photographed in Avalon of this gorgeous family because they were soooo much fun to work with. Not only were they laid-back and ready to have fun, but they had THE happiest little boy ever. It was a perfect morning for beach pictures.

On the drive over to shoot Meg and Brian’s beach engagement session I was wondering if the weather was going to cooperate. Dark and stormy almost all the way up the parkway, it had been raining most of the night, but was supposed to be a beautiful day at the shore. As I pulled into Ocean City NJ, the skies cleared a little, leaving just enough cloud to add some dramatic effect. Meeting at their home on the beach, The location was perfect. With the weather being so rainy earlier, the beach was empty, leaving us plenty of room to work. With the sun trying to peek through the clouds, Meg and Brian took me throught how the engagement had happened. They even had put the chairs and umbrellas back out exactly how they were when he proposed. The morning could not have been more perfect…lots of clouds and color…This combined with Meg and Brians fun & energetic personalities was the perfect ending to an awesome beach engagement session.
Love this girl and her family! Such a fun and sweet bunch! Ashton has such a great outlook on life. She is totally going places with her upbeat personality. She has many great memories of Stone Harbor and wanted it to be a part of her senior pictures. Congrats on getting into Villanova next year Ashton!
