welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

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, […]

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! […]

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 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

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 […]

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 […]

I love visiting Long Beach Island to do family portraits. I am pretty sure I have been to every beach along the stretch of the island from Barnegat Light all the way down to Holgate, and I never get tired of the locales. Not to mention that each part of the island has some special […]

Oh, you guys. Family portraits on Long Beach Island get no cuter than these. I had the honor of documenting this sweet family’s portraits on the beach this past summer in Beach Haven, and we had so much fun hanging out with their adorable little one (who has personality for days, I might add). We […]
