Avalon beach portraits are probably my absolute favorite. Avalon beaches are quiet and calm. There are never many people there, and when there are, it still isn’t a lot. In the evening everyone is strolling along the streets eating ice cream so we have the entire beach to ourselves. I also have a few favorite spots that I love to go to. This is one of them. I love when I can incorporate greenery into my beach sessions for variety. That way the gallery isn’t just sand. Kids tend to get bored easily, so changing the environment but not going too far also helps!
It’s a nice walk, but the kids love it because they can run! This session started a little bit early, around 7pm because of the littles, but ideally, I like to start my sessions around 7:45 for the very best golden hour. However, as you can see here, with the right location, you can shoot anywhere, at any time so long as the lighting situation is correct! Not every location is the right location so it is a very good idea to discuss location with your photographer ahead of time, so you know that where you are going and at what time, is the right time!
Even if you are staying in a neighboring town, there is just something about Avalon that is very special and worth the trip. It’s also nice to visit somewhere else one night of your vacation. So if you are going to Ocean City or Sea Isle, check out Avalon one night as well, or make it a point to get some ice cream after your beach portraits! They have so many options for ice cream in Avalon, including my favorite – DOLE WHIP! (It’s sugar free, dairy free and GUILT FREE!)
Don’t forget to book your session before you come down (Book your session here!) to make sure everything is set for your vacation, and I will do the location scouting for you! I can wait to chat some more about your upcoming Avalon beach portraits and look forward to seeing YOU on the beach! xoxo- Lauren
Check out our favorite Avalon session from last year:
Family Beach Session in Avalon, NJ
This has been such a fabulous year for me and my business, and Everleigh’s Newborn Session in South Jersey, is one of my favorite!
I have met so many beautiful little babies, and been able to document this special moment in their lives. When a baby is born, it’s a huge milestone, not just for the baby, but for Mom and Dad too! They are now parents, and they want to, and should celebrate.I had the honor of meeting Miss Everleigh for her newborn session in South Jersey for an in home session, and could not believe how amazing of a little dreamer she was! Everleigh slept the entire time, and was such a well behaved little lady. I know what you’re thinking, aren’t ALL newborns well behaved? Babies need a ton of sleep after they make their appearance into our world, but that doesn’t mean they don’t cranky! Just like adults, when we need our sleep, we need our sleep. Before your newborn session, I email you tips and tricks on how to have the very BEST newborn session. Things like, giving baby a bath, keeping baby awake, and playing with toes and making sure baby has a full belly. You’re getting to know your new baby, just as your new baby is getting to know you, so your little one will be interested in whatever you have in store for them! Keeping them awake, will help them get super tired, so once it’s time for their newborn session… they’re going to sleep, well, like a baby!
I can’t wait to document Miss Everleigh’s future milestones! Baby girl, I can’t WAIT for your cake smash! I just KNOW she will be ready for her closeup!
