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.

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier – My favorite backdrop for an Extended Family Beach Session in Ocean City, NJ! Whether you are a local and you simply love this spot or you are vacationing and want to be sure to see all of the amazing locations that Ocean City, NJ has to offer – this is a spot to truly add to your list! Not only is it a wonderful amusement park right on the boardwalk, but it’s a very scenic spot for beautiful portraits and the boardwalk is usually pretty empty past Wonderland because it’s just boardwalk. Also, if you are wanting to make an evening of your portrait session, you can head over to Wonderland Pier when you’re done and it’s fun for the whole family! Wonderland Pier is family owned and operated and if you follow me, you KNOW I love supporting local small businesses (such as myself!).
Ocean City is such a beautiful town and it was the perfect spot for this fun extended family session! I love that they were so full of energy and ready to JUMP on the beach (yes, they really did jump!) Not only that but can you spot the engaged couple? I was so happy to be a part of this wonderful family memory for them and I can’t wait for more fun sessions like this!
