LBI family photographer | summer vacation

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!

Connecticut Family Photographer | brothers

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!

 

 

New Jersey Family Photographer | lbi anniversary celebration

lbi family photography 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!

New Jersey Family Photographer | Liam and Garrett

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!

New Jersey Family Photographer | Ryan turns 3!

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!

New Jersey Family Photographer | Family reunion on LBI

lbi portrait photographer 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!

New Jersey Family Photographer | Chase is one!

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.

New Jersey Family Photographer | Chase turns 1

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!

Manhattan Family Photographer | Hamptons beach shoot

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!
