Family Photography Session, Sandy Hook Beach, NJ

Love that this photo shoot with H+M took me back to one of my favorite locations for a family photography session along the Jersey Shore: Sandy Hook Beach. What a beautiful mix of beach and bay, rocks and greenery, bike paths and sand dunes, wildlife and forts. With H+M, we decided to stay near the water and the sand. After all, the kids were giddy just to be at the beach and probably could have run up and down the dunes all night long. And, really, how could they not? I felt the joy of being a little kid myself just watching them climb and crawl up the sand only to roll and run down full speed until they crash landed at the bottom, time and time again.

It was also great to meet the whole family. Last year, I had such a fun session with H and their little ones at South Mountain Reservation in West Orange, NJ as a Father’s Day surprise for M. So, it was lovely to see the whole family playing, exploring and laughing together; to see how the kids loved to cuddle with mama and pretend to be ninjas with dad, and to kiss and hug and flip and do the playful things families love to do all together. That we got to do this with the Sandy Hook backdrop and a setting sun made for a such a lovely evening. I’m smiling still just thinking about it.

Here are some of my favorite shots from our session:
