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/
Lindy Hops is a huge part of my childhood. When I had the opportunity to offer them commercial photography, I jumped on the chance! To be able to help small business that were built from a dream, to have beautiful images for their websites, social media and to show off their products, or in this case delicious ice cream treats, makes me beyond excited and happy for them! As a child, I remember my summer days were filled with riding my bike around Galloway and up to the corner, eating lunch at Mike’s Deli and having desert at Lindy Hops! No day was complete without a visit to Lindy Hops! (And no, I did not eat ice cream every day, if I could have I totally would have!) Some days, I would stop by for a cup of ice water. They always had the best ice cubes! Linda and her team of ice cream scoopers were always so friendly! They were always girls I went to school with, so there was always a friendly face. Lindy Hops wasn’t just an ice cream parlor, they were a part of the neighborhood, and treated all of the kids as if they were their own!
Growing up, getting married and having kids in Galloway, has allowed me to share my Lindy Hops experiences with my own children. It’s a tradition, and one that I hold dear to my heart. When we pass Lindy Hops, my kids shout out, “LET’S GET ICE CREAM!”. I love that they love Lindy’s just as much as I do. Supporting small businesses is something that I hope my kids can learn to do, because seeing your parents do it, is a pathway for children to learn from and do as well. As a small business owner, I know how important it is to help someones dream grow. Linda started this ice cream parlor as a dream, and now it is a very successful, amazing location where people will be more than happy to travel near and far to visit. If you haven’t visited, you need to drop what you’re doing and go grab a cone! However, if you are in the mood for something different, Lindy Hops also offers ice cream cakes, cupcakes, ice cream sandwiches, pies, and even water ice! There are so many options, you won’t walk out without something that hits the spot!
So take a trip to Lindy Hops, where the decor takes you back to the 50’s, where the bright walls bring you joy, and the ice cream is pure happiness! Go enjoy with your family, your friends, or after your dance recital (like I grew up doing!) and make amazing memories!
If you are a local business that would like your establishment photographed the way I did here, please reach out to me directly!
Last week, I photographed a romantic Tuckerton Engagement Session! I remember when I met with Rachael when she first started planning her wedding. She said her amazing fiance, Chris is letting her do whatever she wants for their wedding! When I hear words like that, I just KNOW that he’s a good guy! I didn’t meet him until the session, but from all of the amazing things Rachael had said about him, he had to be amazing! Well, as you can see from the images below, Chris makes Rachael laugh, all the time! So far, he’s got two amazing qualities of a perfect husband! Rachael and Chris are so in love, and it definitely shows. Throughout the entire session, I just kept thinking about how much fun their wedding will be next year! From the very beginning, I knew I would love them, and I was so right! We went back and forth trying to plan the most amazing engagement session. Rachael wanted beach, but then I found out that Chris owned a boat. So, it was clear that we had to take a few photos on the boat! Earlier that day Chris had gone crabbing, and it was our luck that we found a baby crab on the beach! I had to put it in Rachael’s hand, and she probably cursed me the entire ride home for doing it, but that photos though! It tells the story of their life, and these are beautiful memories that they will be able to tell for the rest of their lives. I also had them write before hand, letters to each other, on why they fell in love with one another. I have to say, I was laughing and tearing up behind the camera. They are the perfect combination of love and laughter, and let me tell you, that is the kind of relationship you want to have, because you can grow old with each other, in this beautiful life, and keep each other happy until the very end! Side by side, partners in crime, it’s the best combination of marriage and friendship.
Rachael and Chris, thank you so much for taking me along on your Tuckerton Engagement Session! I am SO excited for your wedding at the Carriage House next year! You are going to make a stunning bride and one handsome groom!
