Love watching clients grow… Main Line, Philadelphia children’s photographer at the beach!

The first time I took pictures of this family, unbeknownst to me… this big guy pictured playing in the sand and surf was in “mommy’s belly”! I had the chance to meet him as a toddler and now look at him go. Not quite as much has changed with Ms. S (other then her age and size) as she was and is the beautiful, cherished, and feisty little girl you see before you. I do just love watching my clients grow as a family!

my favorite age in my favorite place, can’t go wrong… New Jersey Beach family photographer

Another gorgeous family on a gorgeous night in a gorgeous location… and we deserved it!!! Believe it or not it was over a year ago that Mom “S” contacted me to take pictures of her almost one year old. FIrst little “A” fell and had a scraped up face, then we had major rain, then the biggest snow storm of the season (maybe even decade), next we scheduled for spring and then thought we waited this long… lets try for the beach again. Well, our patience paid off big time! We had the most glorious summer night you could ask for and little “A” was in rare form. Mom swears that he is shy, but take a look for yourself and tell me if you see shy in these images! Mom-mom and Pop-pop were there so if you know anything about me and my relationship with my own grandparents I couldn’t pass that opportunity up. The family say’s it wasn’t planned to have the grandparents in the pictures, but they came out a few minutes after I told them to change and get in some pictures and they had perfectly matching outfits on…. you tell me? I was thrilled, and I think they will be too when they see the great images I have of this very happy and lucky family together on a beautiful summer evening!

4th of July creative fun!… Philadelphia family photographer goes to the beach!

Well I do have several “real” beach sessions to post from the long weekend, but since these fun images required no editing they come first. I had a great 4th of July weekend spent with wonderful friends and family even though I did miss my children who are away at summer camp. The fireworks this year deserved a little creative fun on my part, so I had a blast playing with long exposures and seeing what kind of cool effects I could create totally “in camera”! None of these shots have been manipulated at all, and although I was a tad unsocial during the fireworks I had soooo much fun. The only issue I had was that I kept looking over to share this with my oldest son (who shares my love of photography, and truth be told… blows me away in the talent department) but he is away at overnight camp so I was in my own little world.. alone (insert sad face). I can’t wait to share some of these with Jason on visiting day!!!

2 brothers, a beach and no rules…

That was my bribe to these boys as we started our adventurous session. After I got the ok from Mom that yes they could go in the ocean in their adorable outfits, all bets were off. I told the boys we were just going to have fun on the beach and in the ocean, and yes they could go in the ocean at 7 pm. I guess I forgot how fast little boys can run on the beach. Once I caught up with them we got some incredible images that I think really capture the individual spirit of each child and the special bond that only brothers (or a parent of 2 boy’s) can truly understand. Enjoy your sneak peak “R” family I have way to many fun pictures of your gorgeous boy’s for you to see.

My own 2 children blessed me with their cooperation… for once

Much as I love taking pictures of everyone else’s children, when my own children decide to allow me to take their photos I am in heaven.  So I apologize ahead of time for posting so many photo’s of my own children, but you will just have to indulge me.  I am also using this blog to share these photos with my family so I do hhave an excuse.  By the way it is rare for me to get a photo with both of my boys actually touching so as you might expect I’m going to get a huge (really huge) canvas of this first one!!!

Is it really that time again… Beach portraits???

Wow, hard to imagine a gorgeous sunny day at the Jersey shore at the moment.  Today is raining and 52 degrees in Philly, but I just booked my first Beach session this season, in Margate NJ for a weekend in June.  I guess it is upon us after all.  Just a reminder I am available for Beach sessions in Margate, Ventnor, and Longport New Jersey during the summer months.  I will only book a small number of these and they book up fast. If this is on your to do list, book your soon.  Ok, what would a post be without some pictures so to get you in the mood here are a few of my favorites from last summer.  In the spirit of full disclosure some of these are my own kids and the cute dog… he’s mine too!!!
