They will be getting married in Key West in the fall, but wanted to get some beach photos in Ocean City, NJ where the bride grew up vacationing. We met up in the south end of Ocean City, which was a nice change for me. I do most of my sessions in the north end but it was fun to try a different street this time. The weather was perfect and the sun was giving us such great light.

Allison is a stunning bride to be, and she and Jordan were so natural together in all their posing, that it made my job very easy! Jordan had such a great skill of getting Allison to laugh, and she has such a great laugh.  Their connection was palpable. I hope I was able to fully convey that in my images. I wish these two so much love and joy, but they seem like they are brimming with it.

Sessions in the summer are wonderful for silhouettes and it is one of my most favorite things to capture.  What is your favorite thing about summer beach pictures?

 

I am a mom to four boys so I love to photograph a mom and her kids, especially down at the Jersey Shore. ! I think every mom can relate to the love a mother feels for her child. It’s a love beyond measure.

The C Family was so much fun to capture. Kathleen is a mom to two boys who are growing every day.  One in high school and one in college, it was a privilege to see into a window of their life. I know that day will be upon me sooner than I like to think about, but seeing these boys and how much they love their mom, gives me hope that I will be ok.

Being a mom to older boys is kinda like walking a tight rope. They don’t want affection in terms of hugs, tickles, and being rocked in your arms, but rather, attention for their jokes, or watching their favorite hockey team on tv with them. You have no guide telling you that you are doing a good job, or how far you have left until you are done, and it’s scary because you don’t know if every decision you make will make you fall down into horrible pain. When to be strict, when to be lenient, when to give space and when to really insist on knowing everything.

But Kathleen is proof that we can make it. Her boys are thriving and growing up to be such fine gentlemen. I love what I do–Capturing families and meeting great people! Especially at the Jersey Shore.

Welcome Lucy!

I have known Lucy’s momma a long time. And was beyond thrilled that Lucy would complete this family. Her older sister, Sadie, was dying to have a baby sister and big brother Bryce would be a great protector to his sister. I was overjoyed to be able to capture Lucy’s newborn session since I am so close with this family.

I prefer to do all my newborn photo sessions in the first 10 to 12 days from birth.  Most photographers do this that specialize in newborn portraits. The main reason is that during this sleepy first couple of weeks, you can lull a newborn to sleep rather easier than after the two weeks. And once asleep, they tend to get into a good deep sleep that is needed to do all the fun poses that people pin on Pinterest.

Lucy’s momma by her own admission is not a big planner and when I called her a few days after she got home to see when I could come over, she was a tad overwhelmed. It was summer, so the kids were home and they all were adjusting to being a family of five.  I think when I really pushed for my time window, my friend thought I was crazy. Well, she did think I was crazy because she told me so!  And on the day I came over to do the pictures, I could tell my dear friend was frazzled. Her mom was there helping with the older two, her husband travels for work a lot so he was just returning and baby Lucy was up a lot the night before.  But like I tell all my clients, there is no stress. I am not on a clock. We work on the baby’s schedule. I did my set up and we got some pictures. I never rush. If baby needs to eat, we stop and baby eats. I think we stopped for a lunch and let the kids run around for a bit. Then we picked it back up and captured pure magic!

And the very next day, Miss Lucy “woke” up.  I mean she really woke up and did not sleep for months.  She became very fussy and was put on reflux medication. Her mom and I laugh now, because she knows that if I didn’t come that day, it would not have happened!

Looking forward to catching all of Lucy’s fun memories!!!

A week down the Jersey shore is the best when you are a kid. Do you know what can make it better? Having your cousins with you!  Cousins kinda rock, and if you are lucky enough to have one that is around your age, it is even better.  I had the pleasure of capturing two sisters and their families who were down the shore.  Their little boys were about close in age and the best of pals. They enjoyed their week of beach filled days, sandy ocean breezes, and ice cream treats at the Avalon Freeze.

It is such a fun time but they were not interested in ANY type of picture that their parents wanted! They made me work for it for sure.  But they were giggling all the time they were running around the beach, waves, and lifeguard boats. But to be honest, I loved it. I tell my clients all the time not to stress about that perfect picture. Is life perfect? Just capture the moments now, you will treasure them. As kids get older, they get easier to capture but the silliness is gone. That grin when they laugh will be gone. Treasure the ordinary moments of them.

I think I captured the essence of each of their personalities of the kiddies from this family session. That is my goal in my photography, to capture the connection or essence of a person or a bond.

Jackie and Mark | Blue Heron Pines Wedding Photos

Who says you need a year planning a wedding? Yes, planning a wedding can get hectic, but it doesn’t have to! That was this adorable couple’s motto!  Jackie and Mark were the essence of warm and loving. As well as the DEFINITION of relaxed!  Being from a large family, Jackie wanted their family to enjoy themselves and certainly not feel the pressure of trying to get everything perfect.  The bridesmaids picked their favorite black dress from THEIR own closets, grooms rented some tuxes, and the couple embraced the fun side of their wedding by choosing to enjoy every second, and not worry about trying to make a list of everything that was supposed to happen.  The day was classical elegant, yet relaxed.

Their day was filled with such joy and light, mostly since it was radiating off of them. Jackie was the most stunning bride, hands down. Her relaxed attitude added to the lightness that seemed to bounce off of her and embrace everyone at the wedding. Mark, a handsome groom to match his flawless wife, was as chill of a groom as they come.  He hung with his groomsmen after pictures but before the ceremony, just laughing, and casually having a few chilled beverages.

They broke with tradition, as is the new trend, and did family pictures before the ceremony. The spring day was warm, and was filled with sun as Jackie walked down the aisle to be the new Mrs. Glassford. The ceremony was a combination of heartfelt and fun.  The fun was only beginning for the night and for their lifetime.
