Oh, Summer of 2022 – You have already proven yourself amazing! Starting this summer with working on the beach, has thus far been fantastic! This Ocean City Family Beach Session was so perfect. From the colors to the laughter, I couldn’t help but smile while editing these images.
You know it’s going to be a good session when the kids are bringing you amazing seashells over and over again! How precious of a memory is that. If this little boy grows up to only remember how amazing it was to find seashells on the beach, I think my job was complete – even before the session started. I say that because these sessions should not be able remembering some lady with a camera tell you to smile. These kids should be remembering how much fun it was to feel the sand drip from their little toes. These kids should remember how peaceful the ocean was that night, when they walked up the path holding their parents hands. The parents should be remembering how easy it was and how much love their felt for their children as they watched them be wild and free in the wind that night. Their children soaked up the summer breeze and didn’t have a care in the world other than playing at the beach and laughing the entire time.
Ocean City, NJ is a place of memories by default. What you make of it, is purely up to you. I choose joy, each and every single day and you should too!
If you are visiting the Jersey Shore or just simply taking a day trip to the beach, and decide you want to remember these little moments and book a session – think of me. An Ocean City Beach Session is highly recommended! I will encourage fun, laughing, running AND splashing! You’ll have the best memories, and you will not regret one moment of the fun you’ve had at the beach that summer night in 2022.

Jennifer and Patrick chose to tie the knot and have a Beautiful Beach Wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey. The Grand Hotel has is an absolutely gorgeous venue to celebrate your special day. Their ceremony was on the beach, and their reception was full of life as everyone danced the night away. Jenn and Patrick could not have asked for a better day to have their wedding. The weather was perfect. The sun was shining and the evening sky was a beautiful ombre.
When we think about a September beach wedding, we think about warm days and cool nights. The weather has been acting kind of funny lately. Jennifer and Patrick got to experience a truly gorgeous summer wedding in September.
I highly recommend having a Beautiful Beach Wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May. It’s right across the street from the beach which makes the ceremony and the portraits so easy and convenient. Cape May is also a great place to have your honeymoon and a wonderful location for out of town guests to stay the weekend for a mini vacay!
If you are having your Beach Wedding in Cape May, I would love to chat with you and photograph your special day! Reach out to me today to chat!

Are you taking your family on vacation and planning a Long Beach Island Family Session? Let me just tell you, LBI is SPECIAL. I mean, wait until you see the color of the ocean during this session. I wish I could say it was edited to look aqua but it wasn’t! I even stopped during the session to tell Mom that her dress color went so unbelievably well with the color of the ocean! It was one of those nights where you stopped and thought, “wow, I love where I live and I love what I do!” The ocean is such a refreshing, beautiful place that no matter what is going on, you will be calm! It’s the free therapy you didn’t know you needed! So go get it!
I will gladly do a Long Beach Island Family session because the beaches are always clean, calm, beautiful and so well taken care of. LBI is just a very wonderful place to vacation. Even as a “Jersey Shore” local, I find myself having favorite spots and they’re always away from the hustle and bustle of “summer”. I like to stay away from the crowds, and be able to think I am the only one on the beach! That’s a real vacation!

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier – My favorite backdrop for an Extended Family Beach Session in Ocean City, NJ! Whether you are a local and you simply love this spot or you are vacationing and want to be sure to see all of the amazing locations that Ocean City, NJ has to offer – this is a spot to truly add to your list! Not only is it a wonderful amusement park right on the boardwalk, but it’s a very scenic spot for beautiful portraits and the boardwalk is usually pretty empty past Wonderland because it’s just boardwalk. Also, if you are wanting to make an evening of your portrait session, you can head over to Wonderland Pier when you’re done and it’s fun for the whole family! Wonderland Pier is family owned and operated and if you follow me, you KNOW I love supporting local small businesses (such as myself!).
Ocean City is such a beautiful town and it was the perfect spot for this fun extended family session! I love that they were so full of energy and ready to JUMP on the beach (yes, they really did jump!) Not only that but can you spot the engaged couple? I was so happy to be a part of this wonderful family memory for them and I can’t wait for more fun sessions like this!
