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.

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!
