For all of you beach lovers out there, who have yet to visit Avalon, you NEED to come to the ICONA in Avalon! It is absolutely, my favorite beach of 2020! Having ICONA Avalon Beach Portraits in 2020 will gives you a few things… 1. The peace and quiet of having portraits on a beach with barely any people, 2. A clean beach, and 3. Fresh, beautiful air without a ton of tourists on the beach! I know what you’re thinking, but if we’re visiting, we ARE tourists… yes, yes, of course, and we here at the Jersey Shore LOVE and ADORE tourists, but when it’s the evening time, we want you to go eat and relax, and see what the town has to offer and let us photographers soak up the beach with our families! haha. In Avalon, everyone does just that. It’s so amazing, and I just love it. Everyone does their own thing and is just so considerate here. Not to mention that the dunes, and the paths are just made for beautiful photos ops!

Basically, if you are coming here with your family, or doing a simple day trip, book your ICONA Avalon Beach Portraits! You won’t be disappointed, and you will have gorgeous images to hang on your walls, to use for Christmas cards, or even print and give as beautiful gifts. It’s totally worth it, and you will be so happy you invested the time and energy into it!

We all know this season has been pretty wild, but that doesn’t stop us from getting out there and getting the fresh air and family time that we so desperately need. The beach is the best way to get out and just let lose. The sea air cleans your lungs and lets you breath again. My grandma always told me, the ocean breath and salt water will cure the soul! I believe that, and live by it. I am so glad I am able to live so close to the ocean and i can visit often. Don’t forget to take time out for yourselves, even if it isn’t a photo session.

With all of that said, take a look at this beautiful family enjoying the beach for their ICONA Avalon Beach Portraits and if you want to book yours, click the link to get started: https://bokehlovephoto.pixifi.com/pricing/portraits/

Icona Avalon Beach Portraits

Avalon beach portraits are probably my absolute favorite. Avalon beaches are quiet and calm. There are never many people there, and when there are, it still isn’t a lot. In the evening everyone is strolling along the streets eating ice cream so we have the entire beach to ourselves. I also have a few favorite spots that I love to go to. This is one of them. I love when I can incorporate greenery into my beach sessions for variety. That way the gallery isn’t just sand. Kids tend to get bored easily, so changing the environment but not going too far also helps!

All of the greenery you see here is along the beach path to get to the ocean.

It’s a nice walk, but the kids love it because they can run! This session started a little bit early, around 7pm because of the littles, but ideally, I like to start my sessions around 7:45 for the very best golden hour. However, as you can see here, with the right location, you can shoot anywhere, at any time so long as the lighting situation is correct! Not every location is the right location so it is a very good idea to discuss location with your photographer ahead of time, so you know that where you are going and at what time, is the right time!

If you are traveling to the Jersey Shore, I highly suggest Avalon beach portraits.

Even if you are staying in a neighboring town, there is just something about Avalon that is very special and worth the trip. It’s also nice to visit somewhere else one night of your vacation. So if you are going to Ocean City or Sea Isle, check out Avalon one night as well, or make it a point to get some ice cream after your beach portraits! They have so many options for ice cream in Avalon, including my favorite – DOLE WHIP! (It’s sugar free, dairy free and GUILT FREE!)

Don’t forget to book your session before you come down (Book your session here!) to make sure everything is set for your vacation, and I will do the location scouting for you! I can wait to chat some more about your upcoming Avalon beach portraits and look forward to seeing YOU on the beach! xoxo- Lauren

A Cape May NJ Beach Session is as magical as they get, where sunsets are eminent and you don’t leave without amazing memories!

This session was absolutely joyful. The sun was setting with the most gorgeous golden glow and their outfits were as if they were styled by a professional! Well, they kind of were! Shout out to Tami & Ryan for always being amazing clients and friends!) The excitement of their son when he got to play “photographer” with my camera filled this session with laughter. (But let’s be real for a moment, his parent’s are photographers and he is no noob to the game!)

As the sun set, we moved our way down the boardwalk and onto the beach. We let the kids play as the sun got lower and lower in the sky, and photographed them in the bright golden beams. It was a moment to remember, and really set the moment, and allowed us all to have a beautiful moment of peace in such a crazy time.

Everyone in the town must have known it would be the most perfect evening because the beach was packed! I have to say, the water was warm as well. Nothing beats jumping in the ocean at the end of a Cape May NJ Beach Session and letting the kids just be kids! It’s also gives Mom and Dad a chance to relax on the blanket and watch them have fun too.

If you are traveling down south and looking for a portrait photographer for your Cape May NJ Beach Session, reach out to me today! I can’t wait to chat with you and photograph your family having the time of their lives!

Cape May NJ Beach Session

Congratulations! You are planning your wedding and you are at the stage to book your photographer! This is such a fun and exciting time. You have made the decision to marry that one person that completes you. So, when selecting your wedding photographer there are certainly things to consider.

What is their style and does it match who you are as a couple?

What do I mean by this? I don’t necessarily mean light and airy or rich and romantic. While, yes those are styles of photography, I am more so asking the question of does the photographers style of shooting align with your vision. Allow me explain that deeper. Does your photographer give you and your new partner the space you need to feel each other love, emotions and all of the things that happen on wedding day? Do they get up close and personal, and does that sit well with you? Does your photographer give you instructions, or do they allow you to be organic? These are all questions that you need to ask yourself, your partner and your potential photographer.

Does the photographer use lighting, and do you need lighting?

Lighting is such an important aspect to consider when Selecting your wedding photographer. It is a good idea to ask any potential photographer if they have a lighting kit, and what is in it. You don’t really need the specifics of brands and all of those things, but it’s good to know if they have more than one flash, and if they have any creative gel colors in case you want something creative in the evening. A photographers lighting kit is not uplighting for your reception. That is an extra that your DJ should cover, but it is not always included. Definitely discuss this with your DJ, I recommend purple. It always looks gorgeous! Getting back to photographer lighting, let’s say for example it is a rainy day and you cannot venture outside for your portraits. In this instance, your photographer should be able to set up lighting indoors and be able to continue your day smoothly without any hiccups!

Is an album included, can you purchase one after, and will they help with designing it?

Your wedding album is what you are going to remember your day with. These printed memories are an heirloom that will get passed down to your children, they are your legacy. You are not just printing pictures, but you are showing your family what love is, and how they too can have what you have. Loving someone is the best tradition you can pass down to your children. Love, after all, will conquer everything else. Having a photographer that can sit with you and help with the design process is very important. The last thing you want is designing your album to be a hassle. Also, having the versatility of being able to buy one after is always a great option, but don’t wait too long!

Does the photographer care about your wedding?

This sounds like a silly thing to wonder about doesn’t it? I will tell you, there are photographers who just care about booking another wedding. Selecting your wedding photographer is hard, but asking certain questions will point you into the direction of the photographer who really cares. So, what questions should you ask? You could start with, ‘How long have you been a photographer, and is this your passion?’ A photographer that is passionate about photography will answer this question as if they’re talking about their very own baby. I know, for me, photography is like breathing – I can not go a day with out it. So on wedding day, I know I will share the emotions that you are feeling, because I am so happy that I am able to document this special time in your life.

Selecting your wedding photographer, the final decision!

If you think you’ve come to a point in your wedding planning that you are truly vibe with a photographer and you want to make it official, don’t wait! Chances are if you love them, someone else does too. Dates get booked faster than you can say “I’LL TELL YOU WHAT I WANT WHAT I REALLY REALLY WANT!” (yes, that was a Spice Girls reference, don’t judge me). But really, when you find your photographer, book them, don’t wait. Photographers will save your wedding date for roughly 1 week from you contacting them, so when you’re ready, make haste!

The Ocean City Fishing Pier is one of my favorite locations to shoot at. Whether it is sunset, sunrise, or 9am during bright sun and were 100% into beach season! Having a Beach session at the OC Fishing pier offers both the shade that we need AND the versatility of having beach and a being under a pier. This area is also in a great location at the end of the boardwalk, which doesn’t get that many tourists. There is also some amazing Johnsons Popcorn down this end, if you’re up for a snack after your session!

Photographing Friends:

Jackie is an amazing friend of mine and a photographer right here in South Jersey. She is the owner of Stinsman Photography which is a full service portrait studio in Burlington, NJ! Check her out if you’re in that area. I have photographed her family a few times now and I love seeing her boys grow up! They’re getting SO BIG! We had a ton of fun on the beach and they were so excited when it was time for some candids! (Because candids mean, running in the water with Mom and Dad!)

Memories:

These boys will not remember me, they won’t remember the camera, they won’t remember smiling for the lady 12ft away haha (yes, I am protecting my clients with social distancing and using my Nikon 70-200mm lens!). What they WILL remember though, is the fun time they had splashing in the waves with their Mom, and Dad throwing them up in the air. Years from now they will see these pictures and say “Wow! Look how strong Dad was, flipping me around like a feather! I want to be like him one day!” or “Look at how beautiful my Mom was, and she didn’t even care if she got her dress wet. She really loved being in the moment!” And then they will hug, and laugh and remember how much fun it was, and then they’ll do it again and again. It becomes a tradition. Taking family pictures on the beach, putting all of their attention into having fun and laughing. Those laughs, those are real genuine laughs. Let’s keep capturing that stuff. Because that is the stuff that keeps our hearts pure.
