welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

Growing up, I never really appreciated how cool of a place I lived in. Heading to the boardwalk was totally normal, the beach was always right around the corner and I had my pick of options on any given summer day. Kohr’s was always easy access, and I consumed endless orange and vanilla swirl cones […]

I may be just a little bit obsessed with Marina because her energy is so good and she and Jim are down for anything! Also – can we please talk about her hat?! If more people wore hats for engagement sessions in 2022, I would not be mad about it. There’s just something about a […]

Engagement sessions are my favorite way to get to know my couples! Not only do we get to hang out in a really low pressure situation, but I also get to know you, you get to know me, and we get some amazing photos out of the whole deal (and you get comfortable with being […]

One of the coolest parts of my job is getting introduced to cool new places! My couples show me some amazing new (to me) spots, and I am always to excited to go and shoot at new locations. Just when I thought I had experienced every beach on the Jersey Shore, Kelly and Kevin went […]

I always love when my couples introduce me to new locations! Believe it or not, I had never been to Allenhurst. It’s one of those things where, despite often being super close (you can actually see Asbury Park from the beach), I had just never worked my way north enough to be there. As it […]

Fun fact: Early in my photography career, I rarely shot in Spring Lake. I always used to wonder where those beautiful bridges were when I saw wedding photos that were being shared around, and I didn’t have a clue where to look for them. Eventually, I stumbled upon the park, and now I consider Spring […]

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 […]

I love Julia and Mike! This Asbury Park boardwalk and beach engagement session was so fun to shoot – and I love that we incorporated some of their favorite things (namely ice pops and champagne, which also happen to be some of my favorite things if we’re being honest). I always love shooting in Asbury […]
