welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

Before I was a wedding and family photographer, I feel like I had barely seen any of my home state of New Jersey. I used to think I had been around a bit and seen some things, but in reality I had only ever really been in my very small section of the state. Nine […]

Take me back to sweet summer, please! I always love when families want to include a little bit of themselves into their sessions – and this one at a marina in Beach Haven is such a perfect example! I am all about unique and unexpected locations for sessions. The beach is a classic option – […]

I feel like photos only become more valuable as time goes on. Nothing can capture you the way you were at any given time in your life quite like a photo can. I alway find this to be especially true of my family sessions. Kids grow so quickly, seasons of life are always changing – […]

Family Beach Photos in LBI

Before 2017 I had never been to Stone Harbor. I am so happy that I scheduled that first family beach session down there, because it has quickly risen to be one of my favorite beaches since then! It is the perfect, quintessential sleepy little beach town (with just a bit more hustle and bustle in […]

I always love when I find little hidden gem beaches along the coastline – and Avon By The Sea is for sure one of them! Despite visiting Asbury and Ocean Grove regularly, I had yet to shoot at this stretch of beach until this session – and it did not disappoint! I especially loved that […]

Family Photos in Avon by the Sea

On cold winter days I always reminisce about my family photo sessions on the beach. Whenever it’s 5pm and dark outside, I always dream about how in a few short months at 5pm I will sometimes just be getting ready to leave the house to go shoot the evening’s sessions instead of holed up in […]

Name another couple who can make 30mph winds look this good. I’ll wait. No really though. For this gorgeous Barnegat Light engagement session, Joanna and Ray toughed out some really difficult wind and extremely chilly temperatures. With wind chill, it was probably around 30 degrees or so for the entirety of this hour long shoot. […]

This post is a late one coming, but I promise it was worth the wait! Island Beach State park is literally the most perfect place for engagement photos, and these are 100% proof of that. Aside from being a perfect place for photos, A7 (or Tice’s Shoal) as it is lovingly referred to by boaters) […]

This family photo session in Beach Haven on Long Beach Island is a perfect example of what happens when everyone is a wardrobe DO! You get an amazing set of family photos filled with soft rose gold light and perfectly coordinated attire. I was absolutely dying when everyone showed up perfectly dressed in complementary but […]

It seems like only yesterday that I was photographing this soon-to-be family of three on Long Beach Island, and now this past summer they are a soon-to-be-family of four! As usual, Valerie and Josh were literally the sweetest people I have ever met. They are insanely good natured – even when out on the beach […]
