Oh, Summer of 2022 – You have already proven yourself amazing! Starting this summer with working on the beach, has thus far been fantastic! This Ocean City Family Beach Session was so perfect. From the colors to the laughter, I couldn’t help but smile while editing these images.
You know it’s going to be a good session when the kids are bringing you amazing seashells over and over again! How precious of a memory is that. If this little boy grows up to only remember how amazing it was to find seashells on the beach, I think my job was complete – even before the session started. I say that because these sessions should not be able remembering some lady with a camera tell you to smile. These kids should be remembering how much fun it was to feel the sand drip from their little toes. These kids should remember how peaceful the ocean was that night, when they walked up the path holding their parents hands. The parents should be remembering how easy it was and how much love their felt for their children as they watched them be wild and free in the wind that night. Their children soaked up the summer breeze and didn’t have a care in the world other than playing at the beach and laughing the entire time.
Ocean City, NJ is a place of memories by default. What you make of it, is purely up to you. I choose joy, each and every single day and you should too!
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. An Ocean City Beach Session is highly recommended! 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 2022.

If you’re a farm girl, and you want your daughter to be a farm girl too, then you HAVE to do a Farm & John Deere Cake Smash! And guess what? I happen to own a Mini John Deere tractor! It is the perfect size for your little one!
My name is Lauren, and I am a photographer in Galloway, NJ! I love first birthday cake smash sessions, and I have so much fun designing the sets. I welcome all ideas, but this John Deere Cake Smash it definitely one of my favorites!
A barn theme coupled with farm animals and a John Deere tractor, was more than enough to get me excited for this session. While I had some things around the studio, I knew I had to purchase some key items. Stuffed animals and hay were must have pieces. Additionally, I had a little green dress in my client closet that fit her perfectly.
As always, our cakes are custom designed by Blaire of LilyGray Sweets. The cost of the cake is included in the price, and you get to consult with Blair on the design, the ingredients and any allergies that your child may have. The cake is delivered directly to the studio giving you one less thing to worry about when you book your session with Bokeh Love Photography.
If you are in the Tri-State area and looking for a cake smash photographer, reach out! Cake smash sessions are my jam! I look forward to the giggles and enjoy the entire planning process.
Are you taking your family on vacation and planning a Long Beach Island Family Session? Let me just tell you, LBI is SPECIAL. I mean, wait until you see the color of the ocean during this session. I wish I could say it was edited to look aqua but it wasn’t! I even stopped during the session to tell Mom that her dress color went so unbelievably well with the color of the ocean! It was one of those nights where you stopped and thought, “wow, I love where I live and I love what I do!” The ocean is such a refreshing, beautiful place that no matter what is going on, you will be calm! It’s the free therapy you didn’t know you needed! So go get it!
I will gladly do a Long Beach Island Family session because the beaches are always clean, calm, beautiful and so well taken care of. LBI is just a very wonderful place to vacation. Even as a “Jersey Shore” local, I find myself having favorite spots and they’re always away from the hustle and bustle of “summer”. I like to stay away from the crowds, and be able to think I am the only one on the beach! That’s a real vacation!

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!
If you are planning your family vacation and you want your Extended Family Beach Session in Ocean City, reach out to schedule today!

This year we decided to do something really fun! We introduced the 5 minute micro mini’s for Christmas! These sessions are an amazing concept! They were very quick and last 5 minutes. You come in ready for the camera and get 5 minutes to be photographed! In that 5 minutes, whatever good images we get are yours; it’s that simple! Call it giving back, call it pure kindness; whatever you want to call it, it makes us happy to give back and give out clients some beautiful and quick images!
These 5 Minute Micro Mini’s for Christmas had Parent’s raving and thanking me for offering these! Some parents said their children don’t have long attention spans. Others said they wanted to be in and out as quickly as possible because of Covid. Then there were even some clients who never had a photo session and wanted to try this out. It’s a little sampling of what I can do in 5 minutes, so imagine what I can do in a regular 1 hour session!
These 5 minute micro mini’s for Christmas were really great! I will definitely be incorporating them in my business model for next year. If you think this would work for your family, reach out and let me know! I can’t wait to start planning next years and I am SO happy that I was able to make so many people happy during this weird time!
The pictures below are a sampling of what my amazing clients received from their 5 minute micro mini’s for Christmas!
