romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

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.

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! […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Anytime I am down doing family portraits at Barnegat Light, I always have such a good evening! This particular evening was no different. I tell you guys often how special my clients are to me – but honestly it’s impossible to really put into words how true that is. This session is a prime example. […]
