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.
