Sweet NJ Family Beach Session
I have been photographing this family since before this little guy was born. This year for his second birthday, they opted for a family beach session to celebrate! We caught a beautiful golden hour around sunset that just made everything glow and gave an overall softer feel to the images. It was absolutely wonderful! I always try to get photos of mom and dad together alone too. It’s not often we have a couples photograph of ourselves once we have kids!
Booking an NJ family beach session is the perfect way to celebrate summer with your family.
For these sessions, I always find it best to focus on softer fabrics and neutral tones for wardrobe. The boho style dress suited this session perfectly! You can see that the tones in dad and baby’s clothing tie in magnificently to the sand and shoreline seaweed details in the images as well. For the more casual looks, mom chose shades of blue with tiny bits of color in her printed dress. Keeping the looks tonal help to keep the focus of the images on you as a family, and lend themselves to a more cohesive image!
Baby boy was a trooper during this session. He stopped only for a few minutes for a bottle of milk while staring at the sea like an old man! This beach session was a lot of fun. You would never know that dad lost a contact halfway through and suffered a blood-drawing bite at the hand of one of those pesky sand/horse flies!
