Plan a family beach session in Avalon, NJ with Bokeh Love Photography today and have memories that will last a lifetime! The beach is a place for fun, it’s a place to gather, and it’s a place where memories are made. There is never a bad day at the beach. When families reach out to me and tell me they would like me to photograph them on the beach, I am always excited. Every day the beach is different, the sand isn’t always in the same spot. The waves can be calm or they can be wild. There can be seashells or jelly fish, seaweed or clams. It can be a bright sunny day, or moody with overcast. It’s always a place to be expectation free, to go with the flow and see what happens. It’s natural and wonderful, and unique as each family session. This particular session was an Extended Family Beach Session in Avalon, NJ.
Avalon, NJ is one of my favorites places to photograph. The beaches are beautiful and the beach paths are out of this world! I am so lucky to be able to live in a place that most people call their vacation! To say I am blessed is an understatement! I have so many locations that I have up my sleeve but this one, this one is one of my favorites!
As the summer is coming to a close, that doesn’t mean beach sessions are over! I love beach sessions in September and even in October! Also, I have something up my sleeve that may include a peacock chair and some GORGEOUS flowers for late August/early September. If you’d like to be on the radar for that session, add yourself to the email list and be notified of upcoming themed sessions!

Time to start booking your Jersey Shore Beach Portraits!
Visiting the Jersey Shore is probably the best family vacation you can go on. There are so many fun family friendly things to do. Booking your session right before sunset, allows you to enjoy the beach during the day, get showered and cleaned up for your portrait session and then spend the rest of the night enjoying the boardwalk, going out to dinner or playing on a pier with games and rides! There are so many different beaches to capture your summer memories, I would love to chat with you to find out exactly what you are looking for! Whether it is a warm evening on the boardwalk, playing games and going on the rides with your family at Gillians Wonderland Pier , Playland’s Castaway Cove, or Morey’s Piers, Catching a sunrise with your special someone, or my absolute favorite – The Golden Hour! The golden hour is 1 hour before the sun starts to set, when the sun just about touches the horizon, and casts a beautiful glow of gold across the sand, the water, and your sun kissed skin! It’s the most beautiful time of all! Jersey Shore Beach Portraits are the best way to bring home your lasting memories and be able to share those memories with your family and friends time and time again.
My FAVORITE beaches:
The VERY best Jersey Shore Beach Portraits are taken on our beautiful East Coast! Brigantine, Avalon, Ventnor, Margate, Longport, Ocean City, Sea Isle, Cape May and Wildwood! And of course all of the little beaches in between! From shady beach paths to mountainous dunes, lighthouses and jetty’s, there are so many options to choose from and no two beaches are the same!
What to wear to your session?
It can be so frustrating to try and find the perfect outfit! I know, I get it, I totally understand. It doesn’t have to be difficult, it’s actually quite simple! Start with yourself, what would YOU like to wear on the beach? It is SO easy to dress our kids, our partner, grandparents, etc. But, when we get to ourselves, we tend to have more of a difficult time. That’s why I say, dress yourself first. Find the outfit that you just adore! Whether it’s that beautiful patterned, shoulder showing, summer dress that you’ve always dreamed of wearing, or the super cute white Capri jegging’s and the adorable navy blue top, you are going to be the center of your families color scheme. Then, you dress the kids. Don’t match them to you, but decide what colors you would like to have in your images. Would you like bright or light, dark or dramatic? Pick two colors you love, and add a neutral. For example, if your neutral will be white, you can add orange and blue to the mix. Orange and blue are complimentary colors, which means, simply they compliment each other! There is a reason why Christmas colors are red and green, and Easter is Yellow and Purple! Complimentary colors are everywhere, and they look fantastic! Need some samples? I knew you would ask! Check them out below!
Take a look at some of the beautiful images that I have created for past clients in previous years blow! Whats so nice about these images and the collections that I offer is that you get to select only your absolute favorite images from an online proofing gallery. The ordering process is so easy, and you are free to share your online proofing gallery with friends and family all over the world! Should you want anything custom, like a museum framed print with a beautiful crisp white mat surrounding your images, I can certainly custom order that for you as well! Here is an example below of what the museum framed print will look like on your wall!
*If you are interested in these frames, please mention them when reaching out!
I can’t wait to speak with you about your upcoming vacation, and how I can document the very best portraits for your family this summer!

I had the honor of photographing the Brooks family for their Summer Family Session in Galloway, NJ. Summer doesn’t always have to be the beach! There are so many beautiful locations that are often forgotten when the sun comes out! Yes, we love the beach and all things sandy and warm, BUT we don’t want to forget about all of the gorgeous hidden gems around Atlantic County! One of my favorite places to go is none other than Stockton University in Galloway, NJ! It’s right around the corner for me which is always nice, but more than that it’s BEAUTIFUL. Stockton does such a fabulous job at landscaping their grounds! It’s perfect for portraits, and even a picnic! (Seriously, bring a picnic basket to your session, that would be so adorable!)
Having your Summer Family Session in Galloway, NJ is so relaxing. Galloway is a not considered a shore town, so it’s usually quiet during the summer months. However, there are so many beautiful hidden gems within Galloway that make you really glad you decided to stop here. You’ve got multiple bay locations, campgrounds, a gorgeous university, and countless parks and playgrounds. It’s the perfect location for a summer portrait session.
