Beachy First Birthday Cake Smash at the Wildwood Avenue Pavilion | Ocean Gate Photographer

February 11, 2019

I absolutely love this family! I had the honor of photographing these four last year – only the smallest of the bunch hadn’t been born yet. Fast forward to this year and he is one! So naturally we had to have a beachy cake smash by the bay. It helped that we had a rose gold sunset to boot, and the cutest pair of kiddos!

Ocean Gate has long been a favorite spot of mine for portraits. It is a small beach town on the Toms River – and an ideal spot for family portraits. If the ocean beach is too windy – the bay beach is always a nice calm alternative. It’s also perfect for little ones who want to put their feet in the water (probably a little too perfect).

Location: Ocean Gate, New Jersey

Photography has always been my passion, and a profession I have always felt so honored to be able to call my own.
