Amidst the tulip blooms | New Jersey Child Photographer

Whenever my children say something like, "Wouldn't it be amazing if every season were warm and sunny?" I always remind them that we would never appreciate the beauty of that time of year if we didn't have to experience the depth of the winter cold and darkness. Through the seasons we experience longing and patience, and witness the beauty of creation in all it's many forms. Coming out of what felt like the coldest, longest winter of our lives, the colors of spring feel like a true miracle. God's gift to us all.

When I saw that the tulips were blooming at the largest tulip farm on the East Coast, we decided to take a little daytrip and soak up some sun and all the brilliant colors. Josephine LOVES flowers, so this was pretty much heaven on earth for her. 

Spring is finally here and I have a few openings for sessions this May and June. Fields of yellow wildflowers will soon be in bloom, as well as the cherry blossoms. If you'd like to book a session to celebrate the beauty of this season, I'd love to talk with you. 

Sunset at The Cove | Cape May New Jersey Beach + Destination Photographer

I know.. summer doesn't actually end until late September. But to me, Labor Day is the end of unstructured, carefree family time and vacations. Capturing this family's last day of their beach vacation in Cape May New Jersey was the perfect end to my summer season. One thing I love about Cape May is how you can capture that beautiful sunset light over the water, unlike most east-coast beaches. I also just love the character of the town! Victorian houses, a pedestrian mall filled with cute shops and eateries, and my favorite find on this trip- the very best ice cream sandwiches at Peace Pie!

For this lifestyle session we started in town walking the pedestrian mall together. We stopped into the cutest candy shop and the girls picked out their goodies. (When mom told me later that the kids said she had picked a really fun photographer I chuckled- Sure! The one who suggested we go to the candy store and take pictures with lollipops!) 

I love playing with the deep shadows and harsh light of the early evening- to me that is part of the fun of summer light, especially to capture the whimsical fun of a walk around town. And the bond between these sisters so close in age is just the sweetest. 

After our romp around town, we headed over to the Cove beach in Cape May. It is a beautiful spot that gets a perfect view of the lighthouse and sunset. This family was so playful and affectionate- I just love the connections we captured during our time together. It was the perfect way to end the summer!

If you love my work and would like your family vacation to be documented, I love to travel for sessions! Please inquire if you'd like to book a destination portrait session with me!
