So you want to book an Extended Family Beach Session on the Jersey Shore? Let me help you with that!
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.

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!

Jennifer and Patrick chose to tie the knot and have a Beautiful Beach Wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey. The Grand Hotel has is an absolutely gorgeous venue to celebrate your special day. Their ceremony was on the beach, and their reception was full of life as everyone danced the night away. Jenn and Patrick could not have asked for a better day to have their wedding. The weather was perfect. The sun was shining and the evening sky was a beautiful ombre.
When we think about a September beach wedding, we think about warm days and cool nights. The weather has been acting kind of funny lately. Jennifer and Patrick got to experience a truly gorgeous summer wedding in September.
I highly recommend having a Beautiful Beach Wedding at The Grand Hotel in Cape May. It’s right across the street from the beach which makes the ceremony and the portraits so easy and convenient. Cape May is also a great place to have your honeymoon and a wonderful location for out of town guests to stay the weekend for a mini vacay!
If you are having your Beach Wedding in Cape May, I would love to chat with you and photograph your special day! Reach out to me today to chat!
