So you want to book an Extended Family Beach Session on the Jersey Shore? Let me help you with that!
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.

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!

I love Cape May. If you haven’t visited, you should. I know I’ve said it before, but Cape May is a magical place. So why not plan a Cape May Beach Proposal in one of the most beautiful locations in South Jersey? I had the pleasure of meeting two amazing people, Conor and Leah this September when he planned to propose to her on the beach. He even had his parents meet them there with their adorable dog, who was dressed up in a tuxedo!
It was a beautiful day, and could not have had a better outcome! She said YES! So now comes the fun part, wedding planning! Whether they decide to elope, have a small wedding, or go all out, I just know it will be absolutely perfect!

Ahhh, Beach Portraits in Cape May… I always say that Cape May is a magical place. It really is. It could be raining somewhere else in New Jersey, but Cape May is completely different. It’s as if there is a bubble around this place, keeping it pure from the other areas. Of course it does rain here, but oftentimes its a thousand percent different than the rest of the state. Either way, it’s one of my favorite beach locations to visit, and I can not wait to go back!
Family Beach Portraits in Cape May are the best. I am not just saying that because I visit often, or even that I am a photographer. Let’s be super real and talk about Cape May really quick. Cape May, by default is a vacation destination but it is so much more than that. Cape May is home to so many amazing people who love the environment and love the beaches. The dunes and the beach grass in Cape May is something you would imagine in your dreams, or see in a beautiful movie and just wish to go get your feet sandy. So having your Beach Portraits in Cape May is, well, a dream come true!
If you don’t believe me yet, just take a look at these beautiful images. I would gladly hang these all over my walls! They’re absolutely stunning and I couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful day!

For all of you beach lovers out there, who have yet to visit Avalon, you NEED to come to the ICONA in Avalon! It is absolutely, my favorite beach of 2020! Having ICONA Avalon Beach Portraits in 2020 will gives you a few things… 1. The peace and quiet of having portraits on a beach with barely any people, 2. A clean beach, and 3. Fresh, beautiful air without a ton of tourists on the beach! I know what you’re thinking, but if we’re visiting, we ARE tourists… yes, yes, of course, and we here at the Jersey Shore LOVE and ADORE tourists, but when it’s the evening time, we want you to go eat and relax, and see what the town has to offer and let us photographers soak up the beach with our families! haha. In Avalon, everyone does just that. It’s so amazing, and I just love it. Everyone does their own thing and is just so considerate here. Not to mention that the dunes, and the paths are just made for beautiful photos ops!
Basically, if you are coming here with your family, or doing a simple day trip, book your ICONA Avalon Beach Portraits! You won’t be disappointed, and you will have gorgeous images to hang on your walls, to use for Christmas cards, or even print and give as beautiful gifts. It’s totally worth it, and you will be so happy you invested the time and energy into it!
We all know this season has been pretty wild, but that doesn’t stop us from getting out there and getting the fresh air and family time that we so desperately need. The beach is the best way to get out and just let lose. The sea air cleans your lungs and lets you breath again. My grandma always told me, the ocean breath and salt water will cure the soul! I believe that, and live by it. I am so glad I am able to live so close to the ocean and i can visit often. Don’t forget to take time out for yourselves, even if it isn’t a photo session.
With all of that said, take a look at this beautiful family enjoying the beach for their ICONA Avalon Beach Portraits and if you want to book yours, click the link to get started: https://bokehlovephoto.pixifi.com/pricing/portraits/
