welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

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 […]

I always love shooting family portrait sessions anywhere on Long Beach Island, but there is just something about Barnegat Light that always gets me. It’s one of the few places on the island where I feel like the beach has a different vibe. I have a couple of favorite beaches there that I deem my […]

Jess and Rob didn’t know each other before they met to take these photos. This was the very first time they had ever seen each other. As a wedding photographer, I know just how to figure out the dynamics of each couple I photograph. I imagined this would be much more of a challenge with […]

When you’re a photographer and you get caught up in seeing beautiful sessions on mountaintops and glaciers on Pinterest and Instagram, it’s easy to feel defeated when you live in New Jersey. I often forget that I have so many beautiful places literally right in my backyard. I was so happy when Michelle requested her […]

It all started with a very simple thought. Brady and Kat and I were talking about a shoot where we put a smoke bomb in a pumpkin, and that seemed easy enough. Before we knew it, ‘just putting a smoke bomb into a pumpkin’ had turned into a full-on wicked fall shoot in the middle […]

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 […]

Stone Harbor Family Photographer

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 – […]

Family Photos with boats

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

open post

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 […]
