Christmas on the beach | New Jersey Family Photographer | Ocean County Family Photographer

Posting another session from one of my mini’s done in Seaside Park, NJ.  One of my favorite beaches to go to and to photograph – white sand, beautiful dunes, boardwalk and atmosphere overall.  I have done a session with this family before back in the summer when their dog Bodie was small.  He’s a chocolate lab and is getting big.  I was so happy when they came in an awesome color for them – plum.  The little girl is best friends with my daughter in school so this makes it all the more fun and special.  Afterwards we all went to dinner and let the dogs play (we have a dog too).

Cousins on the Beach | New Jersey Family Photographer | Ocean County Photographer

Yeah, I am blogging again.  I have been super busy these past few weeks.  Between mini-sessions, regular sessions, full-time job, soccer, swimming and just life time has flown by.  These cuties parents are good friends of ours and our kids love playing together.  They wanted to get a photo of all three of them for their parents.  They are cousins.  What a fun time we had for these beach mini-sessions.  We had a lot of sassiness and had some crazy expressions but we did manage to get all three of them in one photo.  It helped that we were not above bribing them all. Luckily the weather was beautiful for this first day in October too.

 

Thanks for a fun time and we will see you all down there soon!

What to Wear Fall 2011 | New Jersey Family Photographer

The fabulous photographer Corina Nielsen was so kind to share these looks below with the photography community.  I have been getting asked a lot lately on what should everyone wear for our session.  My response – COLOR!  Color is great with this fall weather.  A cute jacket, a sweater for the kids, what could look better then layering?  Whether you are at the beach, in a park or on a street let you personality come through with color and don’t be shy :).

 

 

 

I can’t wait to see what everyone will be wearing in our upcoming sessions!

Beach Family Session | Monmouth County Photographer | New Jersey Family Photographer

This family was so fun to work with.   I had the honor to photograph a 1/3 of the family a few months ago and now the whole family.  One sister lives in Italy with her husband and 4-month old daughter and were here to visit her family and for everyone to meet baby girl “C” over the summer.  This little girl was so calm and very attentive.  I just loved watching the first time parents be in awe of her and everything she did.  We were able to take the photos in one of my favorite places, Sandy Hook National Park here in New Jersey.  Thank you for letting me photograph your memories and I hope to see you soon!

Here are some of my favorites from our session:

Gorgeous ladies!!  Love their eyes!
