I think it is such a great time to do family photos. Often, it is an extended family photo session.  Brothers, sisters, parents, cousins, and grandparents all on vacation enjoying family time that doesn’t happen that often. Many branches of the family tree that may be spread out, all join together for a week or so and create so many cherished memories. I feel so honored to be able to capture that great big group shot that will be hanging in all the homes for years as well as all the individual family pictures and groupings. Grandparents with grandkids, all the cousins, lifeguard stand and boat pictures, just to name a few.

The M family came from all over the Northeast to spend a week in Avalon, NJ. The grandparents with their five kids and all their families joined me on the beach for a sunset session.  There was so much fun and humor with everyone, especially with the grandparents.  I was able to capture so many fun moments such as chasing kids, mom kisses, big and little cousin time, and even a gymnast backhandspring!

I often don’t get many takers to meet me all dressed on the beach at sunrise to get pictures taken on their vacation.  I get it! Sleep is so premium anyways and getting up early is hard to do when all you want to do is sleep. Believe me, this girl loves her sleep. I don’t see tons of sunrises. But this session makes me want to change that…

When Brooke called me to say that she wanted me to capture their family photo session while they are visiting Avalon, NJ from Wisconsin, I was booked every night. The week of July Fourth is always a busy one with lots of vacationers.  The only thing I had to offer was a sunrise session. For a group of 15 with lots of littles! When she said they would take it, I was shocked. I can’t imagine getting all those people ready and out the door for a sunrise session. But they were there, all ready to go.

The morning was beautiful.  The sky was crisp, and the kids were tired enough to not want to roll around in the sand, but awake enough to smile.  Capturing the whole family is a fun challenge. The three boys, their families, and their parents all live in Wisconsin. They were visiting Avalon where they have family and enjoyed the beaches of New Jersey for the first time as a family.  Their kids had a ball spending the week in the ocean, building sandcastles, and riding the waves.  I feel it was such an honor to capture this family.  They are special to me now and I will think of them always.

the G family – Avalon, NJ

This was a very special session to me. To capture a family’s connection and to be able to capture a true appreciation of each other in their lives was such a wonderful theme in this session.  This family was such fun. Their mom was celebrating a special milestone with her three children and her first granddaughter. The mint and coral color scheme is one of my favorites.  It lends itself so wonderfully with the beach scene. At the Avalon light was divine and allowed such gorgeous photos for some wonderfully engaging photos of a wonderful family.

Do you remember when I did Leeland’s newborn photo session just a short year ago? Well a year really can fly by and sweet Leeland is celebrating his first birthday. We decided to catch some beach scenery as well as using the little box that sweet newborn Leeland fit so neatly on. And some cake to smash is always a good way to end a first birthday session.

Balloons are a tricky prop to have outside due to the wind especially at the shorebut they sure do make for great photo shoot props.  And we had them for such a short time. The wind this day was so strong that it carried the balloons away with a weighted clip and all. It was priceless.  As always, we just went with it.

Leeland loved his one year old cake. He was being shy about it at first, just dipping his finger in the cake and licking it. But soon that turned to the fist and shoveling it in his mouth, leaving cake chunks on the feet.

Honestly, it was so great to be able to capture his first images as a newborn and then his first birthday pictures. Cake smashes are so much fun! I truly treasure being able to capture such events in a child’s life.

  • Aunt Linda and Uncle Buddy - What great shots. Leeland is so precious and you captured him so well.Johni and Craig, thanks so much for sharing .we love you so much. XoxoReplyCancel
