My last shoot from the LBI beach portraits couldn't have been better- or more special. This session was a birthday gift for their mom. A celebration of who she is as a person and the beautiful family she calls her own. I'm pretty sure some great memories were made, in between the laughter and smiles. Enjoy!
Simply in love with all of these images...enjoy the eye candy!
What a gorgeous night we had for this beach shoot. The warm evening sun transformed the sky in to a soft pastel canvas by the time we finished playing in the sand, and dipping our toes in the water. Truly magical!
My second shoot while in LBI was with my good friends and their family. We chose to switch it up this year, and headed to the light house for a change of scenery. As always, we had a wonderful time capturing great moments and memories!
The first day we arrived to LBI, we headed to the beach. My kids haven't been to the ocean since last summer, and my son definitely didn't remember being here last year. Watching the excitement they had at first sight was such a fun gift. And I'm so glad I brought the camera with me- because I captured some of my favorite pictures of them! Happy to share my little cherubs with all of you!
I'm so excited to share the first beach photo session from LBI! There truly is nothing like capturing the fun and memories made during summer vacation. Enjoy the preview!
Two words come to mind when I look at these pictures: PURE MAGIC
There are so many gorgeous images from this shoot, I die over and over every time I look through them. I chose to share these ones simply because they capture the nature of these sweeties, having fun with each other. And I can't resist the classic New England feel mixed with the colorful boats in the background. Eat your heart out ladies!
Here's the second shoot from my beach shoots in Connecticut yesterday. Love these two kiddos and their momma…we had lots of fun. Can't believe how big they've gotten since we began working together!
Yesterday was my Connecticut fall portrait day at the beach. We lucked out with warm weather and no rain! The first shoot was with my old college friends and their 2 adorable kiddos. We had a blast catching up and playing in the sand. Enjoy!
LBI portrait day 4.
A gift for the grandparents, who celebrated their wedding anniversary. I can't imagine a better present: everyone hanging out on the beach, making memories and taking pictures of three generation. Complete with champaign, I might add! I may have to copy this idea for my own family next year. What a great moment to look back on. So thankful to have photographed it!
LBI portrait day 3.
This shoot was a little different from what I'm used to, which is always a bit thrilling for me. The idea behind their portrait session was to capture who these boys really are; sports lovin' fools! Their passions are baseball (they're really good at it) and surfing (yep, they're cool). So we did a little of both and in the end, I think we succeeded in completing the goal. Memories made between two brothers, and images they'll cherish when they're older!
LBI Portrait Day 2.
Ryan: a little super hero with a big personality. To say we had fun during this shoot is an understatement. Ryan came running right up to me (cape flowing behind him), and gave me an amazing welcome. The last time I saw him was 3 years ago- for his newborn shoot. So seeing him for this session was kind of a big deal, plus I photographed his parents wedding a few years back. I'm so excited to share this preview with you. It was a magical night!
Behold! The first shoot from the LBI family beach portrait sessions.
As you can see, the shoot consists of a family reunion style portrait. They were all gathered together in a sweet beach house filled with tons of laughter and little ones running around. Our shoot took place at sunset, which is not an easy task for any parent of small children. But in between the chaos and occasional melt downs due to exhaustion- we managed to get some amazing portraits. And in the end, the memories made at the beach on this night will forever be etched in their minds--in a good way. Enjoy the preview!
Yesterday evening I met up with Chase and his family for his 1 year portraits. We had tried this a few weeks earlier, but it was crazy windy at the beach so we had to cancel. And yesterday, as I pulled in to the parking lot of the beach, guess what? It started to rain. What are the odds?! Luckily, it was a fast moving rain storm and once the clouds parted, we had a gorgeous evening. We even had a rainbow! In the end, it was well worth the wait.
Today was the first time EVER that I had to pull the plug on a shoot after it began. I met with Chase and his family for his 1 year portraits at Sandy Hook beach with big plans of balloons, sand, ocean, and lots of fun. But the wind was crazy and it started to rain, so sadly we had to stop. I did manage to get this cute shot. I couldn't resist sharing. Stay tuned for pictures of this little guy in a few weeks. Happy birthday, Chase!
Here is the final beach shoot I did this past week. It was with our good friends, their parents and nephew. We got plenty of fabulous portraits, and I love that you can feel the happiness in these pictures. Enjoy!
Another mix of beach and backyard fun from the Hamptons shoots this past week with Lucas and Penelope. I'm switching it up this time with black and white beach shots...some times it just feels so right!
This past week was spent shooting families in LBI and the Hamptons (yes, I love my job). Here are one of my families from the Hamptons beach shoots. We had a beautiful evening and were able to take portraits at their house and at the beach. I love both settings so much, I just can't pick a favorite. Hope you enjoy these cuties!
There's nothing quite like a baby at the beach in the summertime, and here's a perfect example. Loving that polka dot bathing suit, and those gorgeous hazel eyes!
Today I met up with three super cute kids for their annual portraits. The morning light was soft and golden, which worked beautifully with everyone's summery outfit. I hope the images help inspire you for your next summertime beach shoot!
