Bokeh Love Photography is having their Harvest Mini Sessions in Galloway, NJ this year on October 18th! Don’t miss out on this exclusive set up!
In the past years, our set up’s have gone viral on Pinterest! We love bringing natural elements into our set’s and have a blast creating them! This year we did something a little bit different! We have designed a set that will translate to all seasons! It features a rustic plank wall with log stacks on each side. It’s easy to customize and we are the only ones in this area that have a backdrop like this!
It’s located on our property just outside of our barn studio, and will be setup year round! So we are able to offer mini sessions each month here!

Take a look at some samples we took this year of our new set below:
Fall family sessions are my favorite.
The weather starts to change, somehow we get all of this energy to rake the lawn, pops of color and comfy flannels call our names and FORCE us to put them on! SOCKS! Who doesn’t love socks, and hoodies, and those super comfy, fuzzy boots… yes you know the ones, the ones that you can stick your toes inside and wear as slippers. Watching movies with ALL of the blankets, and waking up in the morning and making a big cup of hot coffee!
Yes, autumn is here, and it’s time for Fall family sessions. Because, why not? Your children are older, they’re so cute and of course you want to dress them up in the most adorable fall attire you can find. These images make beautiful wall pieces, but most importantly… this is a tradition!
These special sessions are something to look forward to! You’ve made it through the summer, your kids are in a new grade at school! They’re entering a new chapter of their lives and you want to document this. It’s special, and you’re creating and documenting these memories that they will love looking back on as adults. Then they can carry on the same tradition with their own children. Be proud of that, you did that!
Bokeh Love has been photographing Fall family sessions for over 10 years. Whether it’s a mini session or a full session dedicated to capturing those natural smiles and giggles, you’ll be happy you made this investment!
This session was near and dear to my heart. This little boy’s Mommy, was one of my childhood best friends! What’s even cooler than that, is that my daughters are best friends with her daughters, and I was able to photograph her son’s first birthday Elmo Cake Smash! When she told me that he loved Elmo, I just knew I had to set up the whole Sesame Street Crew! My husband even made the Sesame Street sign with the lamp! And of course, this delicious cake that he is eating is from Lily Gray Sweets, who always comes through with an amazing cake!
He had his eyes on my red ottoman from the moment he entered my studio! He was drumming the entire time! Maybe he has some music in his future! To keep him occupied while trying to get some really nice portraits, I showed him one of my childhood toys, my wooden Radio Flyer Row Cart! He even got to ride on the Morgan Ace Flyer, but that’s just a really cool prop I picked up in my many travels of prop hoarding! (haha, seriously, I have way too many props!)
So we did have some Sesame Street playing on a phone, but shh don’t tell anyone! It’ll be our little secret! Just pretend he is actually smiling at me! He did however, love hanging out with his family. They had matching shirts, done by the lovely Tia of Tia Crafty Creations! They all had matching shirts on and looked fabulous rocking Elmo! I have to say, Elmo is pretty cool!

Having your family session on Avalon Beach is a wise decision for a few major reasons! I am going to list them below, and you should totally trust me, because, well, I’m a professional!
1. A Family Session on Avalon Beach is perfect because the beaches are clean, and the sand is soft!
I know, I know! You’re probably asking yourself, “wait a minute, aren’t ALL beaches clean and soft?” Well, yes, the answer is definitely yes, but, not all sand feels the same. It’s hard to explain really, but there is something just so nice about walking on the Avalon beaches. The sand is finer, and well, that means softer. There aren’t as many shells here. Yes, there are shells, but not like you would find in North Atlantic City, which is near the inlet, and you can see Brigantine just over the water. The shells get stuck there! So, If you are looking for shells, maybe N. Atlantic City is the spot for you, but if you’re looking for soft sand, I recommend Avalon for sure!
2. The dunes are pretty.
Silly right? I mean, not if you’re looking for a beautiful location for your portraits! I try to scope out ALLLL of the gorgeous locations solely based on beach grass! Not only is it an opportunity to educate your children on our natural eco system, and how the beach grass thrives and helps animals have shelter, and help keep the dunes solid with their roots… it also looks really nice in pictures! I say YES to Avalon’s beach grass. It’s just picture perfect!
3. Avalon Beaches have amazing beach paths!
Seriously! They go on for what feels like forever! But it’s a good forever, almost like you’re on an adventure to get to some magical location… THE BEACH of course! And the walk back isn’t that bad either. The vegetation is pretty high, so it shades us from the harsh sun! That’s why I like to start on the path and work my way down to the beach. See? I have a method to my madness!
4. There is usually ALWAYS a beach cruiser to photograph!
Listen, these bikes are pretty cool. You have to admit, they’re just asking to be used as a prop! So long as we are respectful, we don’t touch it (because it’s not ours!), we can photograph them and stand in front of them, all day long!
5. After your session there are SO MANY ICE CREAM SHOPS!
Who doesn’t LOVE ice cream? And let’s talk about variety for just one moment. If you want homemade ice cream, or soft serve, Jimmies or a waffle cone, heck, they even have a spot that serves acai bowls and dole whip! You just have to figure out what you want to eat after your session! I know right, tough choice!
With all of that said, check out this super adorable Family Session on Avalon Beach! This family has been a part of the BLP Family for some time now, actually since the Mom and Dad were engaged! How about that! I have watched their little ones grow up and their family grow and it has been a beautiful experience for me as their photographer, and not only that, they’re become my friends. I am proud to say that I absolutely love what I do. Someone once told me, that if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life! When I tell you that’s not a lie, it most certainly is not!
Cheers to friendship, beautiful photography and growing families!
Cape May is for lovers! It’s also the best location for a Sunny Cape May Surprise Proposal! I was so excited when I was contact by their friend who was planning this surprise proposal!
It was an absolutely gorgeous day! The birds were actively nesting in the dunes, the Johnathan Livingston Seagulls were soaring along the horizon, and the sea creatures were even washing up on the shore! (Of course we MAY have helped one special horse shoe crab get back to the water!) They must have all wanted to see the big event! (Sorry, that’s my fairy tale side coming out just knowing it would be a day to remember!)
Their friends set up this beautiful setting on the Cove in Cape May. Complete with a picnic basket, champagne, and even some bug spray… just in case those little buggers came out to bite! It was all planned out and even had the most beautiful blue Hydrangea flowers and blanket to match. It was perfect! There is no better place than Cape May to confess your love for that special person in your life. From the moment I saw them walking up the beach, I just KNEW she would say yes! And she did, and it was a beautiful moment! I always feel so warm inside when I get to witness and be a part of something so magical.
May your lives be long, happy and healthy today and all of the tomorrows in your years to come as husband and wife! Until then, HAPPY WEDDING PLANNING! CHEERS!
If you are preparing to propose to that special someone, think about planning a Sunny Cape May Surprise Proposal! You will not be disappointed with the beautiful sandy beaches, view of the historic Cape May lighthouse at the Cove, and the animals all around you! It’s as if the world stops for just one moment to focus on you. After all, you deserve a happy ending and a little magic!
