Each year I plan my family session on Brigantine Beach. It’s something that I can look back on and say we all did together over summer break. Summer is a time where our kids are exploring and really coming into their own person and growing right in front of our eyes. Brigantine, NJ has always been a special place for me growing up. I guess that is why I love having sessions there.
This family session on Brigantine Beach was adorable! This little man was all smiles and loved hanging out with his Mommy and Daddy! I loved their aqua, cream and blue colors, I thought they looked so good on the beach! The best thing ever, is when clients show up camera ready!
If you are thinking about having a family session on Brigantine Beach, reach out to me and we can chat about it! The golden hour is my absolute favorite time to take photos because that is one hour before the sun starts to set. I have an app on my phone that tells me exactly what time the sun will start to set and when the last light will be.
On the Jersey Shore, we have amazing sunrises over the ocean (in the East) and our sunsets are in the West (behind the dunes). At 7:00pm in August it is the perfect time for beach portraits! The sun is setting. There is a gorgeous golden glow from where the sun starts to touch the tippy top of the dunes. And the backlighting from the sun, is like we are catching a glimpse of Heaven. How lucky we are to experience the beauty of the Jersey Shore.
You can’t visit the Jersey Shore without bringing some of this sunshine home with you, now can you?

A Harry Potter Boudoir Session? Yes, Please! Sometimes a boudoir session is themed, in this case all she wanted was to show off her Slytherin pride for this themed session! Her body is adorned with all things Harry Potter, ya know, in Slytherin form. A custom Slytherin bow, cardigan sweater (Slytherin style), and of course her very own Slytherin wand! There was definitely some magic going on here, and she rocked it so well!
(Yes, I know, shame on me!) Because I finally understood what the Harry Potter ordeal was all about, what an awesome series! If you want to do a Harry Potter Boudoir session, I highly suggest we get really creative! (I’ve got TONS of ideas!)
The Harry Potter movies (and books) allow your imagination to seriously fly! I didn’t watch them until after this session of course, and now I am so excited to do this again! (any takers?) I would love to go in depth, but I think I will keep it a secret until someone comes along wanting a Harry Potter Boudoir session!
Hair & Makeup was done by the marvelous Mia Crivaro of Creations by Mia. I utilize Mia and her team exclusively for all of my boudoir and glamour sessions in Southern New Jersey. I also highly recommend her for her on location wedding services! She is phenomenal and one of the top wedding professionals in New Jersey.
If you are interested in having your own themed boudoir session, like this one – we highly encourage it! Email us to schedule your upcoming session: firstname.lastname@example.org
Beach Sessions in Brigantine NJ are my absolute favorite! Beach sessions in general, I love – but there is just something amazing about Brigantine. It’s where I grew up going to the beach. The sand is just so soft! The ocean is a bit chillier here, but the sun is hot and once you get in, you do not want to get out! My favorite time to go is around 6:00pm and later. It’s when everyone starts to leave the beach, and the sun is getting ready to go down. It’s so relaxing, and some of the best memories are made during the golden hour!
This handsome little man came to the beach for portraits with his Mom and Dad! He loved the beach and wanted to come back again and again! (And I don’t blame him!) Who doesn’t love the beach!? Family sessions make me so happy, I personally make it a point to have a family session each summer. No matter what! My children will thank me one day when they can look back on the gorgeous photos and remember exactly how much fun they had, and can see how they’ve grown each year!

When a Bride tells me she would like her engagement session to be at two different locations, I get so excited! Engagement sessions are so much fun when they have two totally different looks. The beach is always hard though, especially when it is hours before sunset. There is nowhere to hide from the sun, it’s bright, and it’s really a huge challange. Luckily for us, we went to the Brigantine Jetty, where there are some bulk heads to hide behind. (Believe it or not, when I was a child, there was water all the way up to these bulk heads, but since then, the water has moved out, and the Jetty is now accessable on one side all the way out!) It’s definitly different from when I was a kid, but it made it a great place to take pictures when the sun is super bright! The next location was none other than the Historic Smithville Village! I mean, you can’t go wrong here! When Krista showed up with this adorable green floral skirt, it was perfection! These two are such cuties! The one thing they said was, please – no corney photos! I think they were executed pretty darn well if you ask me – and I see no “corney” photos here, just 120% cuteness!
Krista & Alek – I hope you love these photos! I sure do!!!
