I have been photographing Cricket and her family for years. I adore her daughters and look forward to our portrait sessions each year. We talk about locations, and what they’re looking for and then the magic unfolds. We decided on Hereford Inlet, one of my absolute favorite locations in Wildwood! They were so excited and so was I. Cricket put together the most beautiful color combination for their outfits. And of course they were going to get into the ocean with them because the memories and the fun make the session!
This year, Char was in charge of picking the session. She really wanted flowers so Longwood Gardens was very high up on the list. However, when I mentioned that the Hereford Inlet lighthouse is actually a garden and it’s stunning, we decided to go there! They were NOT disappointed, and I am pretty sure they found a new chill spot for next summer. Hereford Inlet is such a sweet little surprise. It’s never busy, the gardens are well maintained, there are benches and walkways, and a beautiful view of the ocean. What’s not to love?
The best part of the day was that the sunset set the sky on fire! It was as if the sun just knew we were coming and wanted to make sure we had the very best sky! Can you imagine, it rained earlier in the day? I always tell my clients to trust me when it comes to rain. I watch the radar, and make sure to make a very educated decision on if we postpone the session or not. I told Cricket, while yes it is currently raining that it looks to be clearing up and we should try for it! She gave her full trust to me, and wow, we really did luck out because just LOOK at that sky!
I can NOT wait until next year, and look forward to planning something special for their next session!
