welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

I love this family! I remember being on the beach and watching the weather the entire time we were taking these, because it looked like rain was imminent (and I actually do think that the rain began just as we were finishing up)! I get asked all the time how I make decisions based on […]

If you love dreamy bohemian vibes, country roads, and open fields with gigantic breathtaking bouquets (and hats) this is 100% the session for you! You are going to recognize these two – I blogged their original engagement session a couple of months ago (it was amazing, and it was on the beach – you can […]

For anyone who doesn’t know – I actually did family photography alone for a bit before I considered doing a wedding. It was the first type of photography I really fell in love with. It just so happened that my first ever family photography session was on the beach down in Ocean City, New Jersey, […]

Every once in a while, I like to photograph a session that’s a little different. A little wild, a little wonderful. It helps that I have amazing friends that are always down to do these weird and wonderful things with me, and don’t question the process when we are all out freezing in the rain […]

I’ve got this love/hate relationship with snow. On the one hand, it creates a mess, can be hard to travel in, is cold, and stinks to shovel. On the other hand, it can be really pretty and create some bonafide photographic magic. Snow in New Jersey can be particularly fickle. We go entire years with […]

Oh, you guys! This little one was so. cute. When Shannon came to me with her ideas for this session, I was all in. I hadn’t had the opportunity to do a milk bath session before, and it was made even more special by the fact that we were actually able to use Shannon’s breastmilk! […]

One of my most favorite things about family portraits at the beach, is that it is always different! You’d think that I might be bored of shooting at the beach (at this point in my career I have done hundreds of sessions and weddings there) – but no. Every single time I’m photographing at the […]

Did you know that beach family sessions are possible all year long? Even in New Jersey? It can absolutely be chilly – but it’s totally possible! Lavallette is one of my favorite local beaches. There is access to a beautiful boardwalk, and it has so many great locations for family portraits on both the ocean […]

It’s always really special when I get to take photos for a friend (and also fellow photographer). I have known Courtney for a long while now, and I am so lucky to call her a friend. I have enjoyed getting to see glimpses of her kids growing up over the years, and I love how […]

I am so lucky that I’ve gotten to photograph John and Cat’s engagement, wedding, and now maternity photos! Baby Winston is such a lucky guy! We chose Seaside Park for these photos because it’s John and Cat’s ‘home beach’. If you’re from New Jersey, chances are you have a ‘home beach’ too (for me it’s […]
