At home Newborn Photos

I got to meet this early arrival last month. She came several weeks early so we pushed off our her at home newborn photos in  week. She was so tiny when we did our pictures, that some outfits were quite loose. She was so good, and I was able to get several outfit changes and a poses. Her little legs stretched for days, and this gorgeous baby girl will be growing into her outfits so soon.

A benefit of an in home newborn photo session is the new parents can rest in the comfort of their own home, and just watch, sleep, etc. I love being able to bond with these newborns and talking with moms about all the new experiences they are discovering.

Caroline was so fair and so princess like, she was a joy to capture.  I am finding my style in newborn photography, and I favor so much of the neutrals and classic feel of a subdued and subtle color scheme.

What to wear for fall family photos

What to wear for fall family photos



Planning a fall family photo session? Struggling on what to wear? Here are my top tips that will really make your fall photos POP!  Fall is such a wonderful time to get photos done. Just follow these tips, and fall will become your favorite time for family photos.

  1. Stick with only 2-3 main colors.  Fall is known for the natural colors in the landscape so I tell clients that they should provide a color palette that works with all family sizes and shapes. Blue is the basis for so many color palettes since so many colors blend well with it. Jeans are a staple in most families’ wardrobes. So blue usually starts with a good base. Adding another color that mom looks good in, is usually the next step.


 2. Add a pop of color. Purple or mustard tend to make a great statement, weather it be a scarf, statement necklace, or a belt.  Patterns are something that will allow a good pop as well as    interest, but keep them limited. Too many patterns can overwhelm a good color combo.

Top tips on what to wear for your Fall family pictures- add a pop of color

3. Accessorize and layer. As I said before, necklaces, scarves, and belts are a great way to add a color pop, and allows a layering that will provide depth to a family photo.

Layering Accessories is a great way to add style for your family pictures in the fall or for christmas photos

4. Have Mom pick out color that look best on her first and then build the family colors and outfit choices around her. If mom looks good, she will like the photo so why not pick a color that compliments Mom so she can be sure that the photos make it off the computer screen and on to the walls.

My top tip for deciding on what to wear for your fall family photos is start with mom then work remaining pallets and outfits in.

All these tips are just a starting point. I think that nature provides a good palette and serves as a true inspiration.

Most important aspect is taking a deep breath and having fun. Nothing looks better on a person than a good smile!


Best Beaches at the Jersey Shore for Family Portraits. NJ is a great place for family memories and photos.

New Jersey beaches are a mecca for vacationing families from all over the Tri- State area. And one of the most tried traditions is getting your family portraits taken on the beach. The summer is one of my busier times with all the vacationing family sessions. Since I grew up in South Jersey and most of my photography sessions and experience are in that area. I will keep my list to include Atantic and Cape May counties only. I am sure that Central Jersey has a ton of beautiful beaches, but ours is better! wink wink.

1. Cape May, New Jersey

Historic Cape May has a victorian touch and the best sunsets with a wonderful lighthouse for a scenic landscape. Cove Beach is one of my most favorite beach photography spots around! Cape May beaches have a versatile landscape. Most beaches don’t allow sunset views from the beach. Cape May also has some under developed open land around many of the bay beaches. It gives a feel unlike all of New Jersey.

2.  Avalon, NJ

Secluded beaches with sprawling dunes and long pathways to a white sand are the cornerstone of Avalon beaches. I  love the long pathways that I start every session. It allows enough shade to be able to do sessions earlier for the little ones whose bedtimes are much earlier than our summer golden hours. Sunrise sessions have become a fan favorite since it gives a certain feel that is good for little ones as well. Having the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean allows for some beautiful silhouettes that are something that I love being able to provide for all my families.

Avalon NJ is the perfect spot for family beach photos with variety of secluded spots that are so pretty.


3.  Ocean City, NJ

The family mecca for the boardwalk, and sun and surf is Ocean City. Often labeled,  America’s Greatest Family Resort, with a ferris wheel as a backdrop always makes for some fun family photos. The extreme north and south end of the eight miles of beach are photographer favorite gems.

Ocean City NJ is also one of my favorite South Jersey beaches for family pictures

The C Cousins were visiting Wildwood Crest, NJ from Baltimore, Maryland area. They usually visit Ocean City Maryland but wanted to try our New Jersey beaches and soft sand!  They were such a fun bunch with lots of silly faces, lots of energy, and sweet hugs.

Wildwood Crest is a gem of a town for vacationing families. The beaches are large with plenty of room for kids to run and play in the sand and surf.

One of my favorite images of a family photo session is the running shot.  It breaks up the constant posing of sitting and smiling.  It allows kids to get some energy out and I can always get a really great smile from all the kids.  It helps that we do it about 5 times on average.

I love that these cousins were very into hugging, and silly faces, which allows so many fun loving images. If you want to schedule your NJ Beach Family Photos, contact us today.

The M family were so lucky to enjoy two weeks in Avalon, NJ. Although home is in Pennsylvania, they certainly enjoyed their vacation as much as a family can.  Night swims, boat rides, late nights giggling and not going to bed…just to name a few.

This family was styled to perfection and were just a stunning family all around.

I love meeting new families especially when they are vacationing at the Jersey Shore. It is such a beautiful area to photograph family sessions.  There are so many gorgeous spots along the coast of Southern New Jersey. The light, the sunsets, the dunes, the surf…

Here is just a few of my favorites from this gorgeous family beach session!
