Warm wishes… | NJ Beach Photographer | LBI New Jersey

OK…I know we just celebrated Halloween.  And on top of that we had a major snow storm…in some places we got a foot and a half of snow, and many in my area are without power from fallen trees and downed power lines.  Sooooo, I thought it only appropriate to inject some warm wishes into this cool, first day of November.

This beach session took place on the very last day of September…ya know, back when it was balmy.  These kids were adorable, fun and photogenic!  Mom chose some great outfits (love those dresses!) and as I’ve said before LBI as a backdrop just doesn’t get much better…

Beach highlights…. | NJ Beach Photographer | Ocean County, New Jersey

Wow…this summer really flew by.  It’s been my busiest summer yet in business, especially with beach sessions down at LBI!  Unfortunately, something had to give…and it was my blogging.   My beach season started in April and believe it or not, I’m on my way to the beach this weekend for one final session and who knows, maybe I’ll even get some pictures of my own children.

 

But before the feel of summer totally fades, giving way to fall foliage and Halloween mania, I wanted to show some of my favorite images from sessions that I didn’t have a chance to blog this summer…

Beach House… | NJ Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

What do you do when you have a beach session scheduled and it’s really windy out?  You start inside and gradually work your way to the beach…

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to have a sister, especially when I see girls as close as these two.   And their parents were warm and welcoming from start to finish –  you can just see it in these images.

In the Summertime… | NJ Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

Well, with Hurricane Irene upon us, I thought we could use some sunny beach pictures to brighten things up…  These boys got so big since the last time I saw them for a newborn & big brother session.  Look at them now – all kinds of adorable.  And what a change in just eight months!

Beach sessions for children are some of my favorites.  Mom and Dad dressed them in great beachwear and brought colorful, wooden beach chairs which made for awesome props.  At the end of the session, we were joined by the whole family… for a beautiful finale!

Bring on the beach… | NJ Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

If you live in the north east, you know you’re ready for summer.  It’s been a long, cold winter and a very wet spring and I think we’re all dreaming about some warm days in the sun with sand between our toes…

Well, it’s never too early to think about booking a beach session.  This family bravely booked theirs for the beginning of April.  Wow – that’s daring!  Miraculously, it was a balmy 55º with very little wind….what were the chances?  I must say it was quite beautiful.  LBI off-season is less crowded but no less special.  And there’s no line at The Black Whale either.

This mom’s objective was to get just one good shot of the whole family together…I think we more than succeeded.  Her twin girl and boy were not only adorable in looks but had the most endearing personalities as well.  Mom & Dad couldn’t have been cooler.  We had some real fun together….

Mom did a fabulous job of dressing and accessorizing.  I love that.  You can see how nicely denim photographs, and adding bows and fun jewelry can really enhance the look. I love her off-the-shoulder sweater also…

Boys of Summer… | Children Photographer | Long Beach Island, NJ

This family got rained out – twice!  So we had to reschedule for the only weekend available …Labor Day!   That’s right, just in time for Hurricane Earl.  Well that ended up being no threat at all, but it did keep us wondering…

It was my last beach session of the summer and I wanted to go out with a bang!   I could feel the enthusiasm over the phone with this family and their two boys were fun and full of energy, which makes for such a great beach shoot!   Of course, they’re being so handsome doesn’t hurt either!  I really love the variety we got…and I am especially fond of the last shot by the light house.  (Note to self>I need one like that of my family!)

Wonderful to meet you guys…thanks for a such a nice ending to a fun-filled summer!!:)

Siblings by the seaside… | Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

Brother and sister…and good friends too!  You could tell after a few minutes that these two were real buddies!  They were constantly laughing and joking – it was awesome to see and made for some adorable images!  (They’re being beautiful doesn’t hurt either!)

This family travels all the way from Texas to vacation at the Jersey shore…I’m telling you, LBI is just that special!  It was really a pleasure to meet them all…they could not have been any warmer or friendlier…and two hours passed in a snap.

Towards the end of our session, we ran into some sea-creatures and this brave boy showed me how to put a crab to sleep.  Apparently if you flip it over and rub it’s belly it falls asleep within a few seconds.  That’s when he picked it up and showed it to me up close!  Eeeeew!  Well, it was kinda cool actually.  Can’t say the same for the sting ray we found…
