Hi! I’m Lauren and I love family portraits. No, they’re not easy. Well, I mean they are, but not everyone WANTS to do them. Whether it’s Grandmom, Mom or your Aunt Susie that’s planning this family get together because you haven’t had portraits done in 5 years, or there is a new family member to celebrate – these are special. Face it, one day, you will be SO happy to have these photos.
That’s where I come in! I love big families! The bigger the better! Bring Grandmom and Grandpop, your siblings, their spouses, their kids, the family dog, I’m here for it! I want to be sure you get all of the combos you could ever imagine. And sure, it may sound repetitive at times, but don’t worry, I have a plan to make the kids super happy! There is a reason I wear shorts to sessions and it’s not because it’s 90 degrees outside. It’s because if the kids can get through all of the important photos, I’ll jump in the ocean with the and let them go wild as I take candid photos of them being themselves! After all, wouldn’t you want to shake our your sillies if you were 7 years old and your parents just made you sit through the dreadful… FAMILY PHOTO SESSION? It’s all good, I’ve got this, they are going to do GREAT!
My very first photo is the whole group! Then I like to photograph the Grandparents with ALL of their grandkids, and break it down to each family. I am open to other combinations as well, you just let me know what you want, and I’ll makes sure we get it!
As we walk down the beach path, I like to utilize the greenery of the path, and then we hit the dunes! After that, we head to the water! It’s a lot easier than it sounds and you’ll leave your vacation feeling so proud of your family because this was such a special memory to capture. Maybe it turns into a tradition… what a wonderful gift for your kids is that?
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. Extended Family Beach Sessions are highly recommended, especially with Grandparents! 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 2023.

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!
If you’re looking to book your Long Beach Island Family session reach out to me today! Click here to book your session. I still have spots open for July, August and September! **July is limited for sunset spots, but sunrise spots are open and are at 7:30am!**
Beach Portraits in your favorite Jersey Shore town? Yes, Please! Hello summer, I’ve missed you! I have missed the sand in my toes, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, but most of all, I’ve missed those amazing beach portraits. You know the ones, where everyone is going home, clearing the beach and the cool ocean breeze is kissing our faces as we head toward the jetty to catch the beautiful sunset! Yes, that’s exactly what I’ve missed! I’ve missed them so badly, and cannot wait to get out there again! I want to capture the smiles, the giggles, the kisses and the raw emotion that the Jersey Shore brings out! Kick off those sandals, put on the sun dresses, dress the little man in a straw fedora and make this the summer of memories! It’s time for Beach Portraits in your favorite Jersey Shore town!
Beach portraits are more than just pictures, they’re more than just snapshots, they’re capturing your family having fun, enjoying the moment and the warm summer air. They’re about spending the moment together and having it, and keeping it close! The Jersey Shore is a magical place that brings family together and keeps them together! Maybe it’s the cotton candy or the Johnsons popcorn, the salt water taffy or the long nights by a fire.. whatever it is enjoy it, embrace it, and capture it forever!
This year, Bokeh Love Photography will be focusing on memories in hand. We want you to enjoy these moments and show them off to your family and friends. For instance, making irresistible collections to choose from along with add on’s as well as ala carte. We hope you’re as excited as we are, about this amazing experience!
We’ve decided that we don’t want to charge per person. It’s silly. You pay for my time, to come out, and take gorgeous memorable photos of your family. I don’t want to scare you off and tell you that a family of 4 will be this much and a family of 6 will be this much. Bring them all, let’s have a beach portrait party! I love to see happy families, and promise you I will make it a fun time for everyone! Of course, we have kids, so we understand how things go. Kids turn into Crankenstein! (Seriously, read the book, they totally do!), so they get to go first, when they’re happy, excited and in a good mood. Then we move on to Grandparents, Parents, and then break it down into small groups until we are done. It’s works fabulous and it’s a great time!
When I get home that night, I cull them! That means, I go through all of the images and only save the most amazing ones.
From there, I edit them and upload to a password protected website where you get to see all of these amazing images! It’s get better, trust me! Not only can you purchase prints, but you can also order wall art too! Canvases, Fine Art metals, etc… It’s all done directly through the website, and whatever you order gets shipped to your home! So that means, if you were here on vacation, and your family went back home, pass the website around and everyone can order their own products and get it at their own house!
Not only that, but when you order all the gorgeous images, you get to capture your memories from your vacation at the Jersey Shore and support a local photographer! (Thank you so much, it means the world to me!)

One thing I love, is when my clients trust me! One hour before sunset, is the ABSOLUTE BEST time to take pictures. Especially on the beach! You get natural, even, beautiful lighting. The sun is setting and I can control my settings PERFECTLY. It’s amazing and when everything goes perfect, my clients get beautiful photographs to print, hang on their walls and remember forever. This may be in my top favorite sessions of the season.
A HUGE THANK YOU to the Silipena family for trusting me with your memories and I hope you all love your photos as much as I do! Enjoy!
