Whether you are visiting for a week, or are a year round resident, the shore area presents a unique opportunity for family beach portraits which cannot be found elsewhere.   Beaches are a wonderful setting for family summer vacation, high school senior photos, bridal or couples images.  My special style of portraiture is sure to create images you will treasure for a lifetime.  My favorite places to shoot are Seaside Park, Island Beach State Park, Lavallette and Ortley, but other area beaches can be used, as well.  


Most of my clients are simply looking for a few fun memoirs of their Jersey Shore vacations and want a few digital files to share with family and friends.  As such, I try to keep family sessions simple, quick, and inexpensive!  


Every family has unique needs, however, and if you believe you may require more than my simple beach session (below) please contact me to discuss!  I love hearing from you.


Beach Session Fee


Let's keep this simple!  The session fee includes your group session and your favorite 5 photographs in sharing-sized watermarked digital format for sharing with friends and family.  Love your photos and need a few more?  Sure!  Pick all the extras your family wants!  Extra sharing-sized watermarked digitals are $18/each.  Love prints? Prints of your selected favorites start at $7.  Simple!

I started doing summer beach photography several years ago on a request from one of my womens portrait photography clients- and they became a huge hit.  --So much so this website was born just for beach photos!  


Summer is short, and my calendar fills quickly.   A non refundable retainer is required to reserve your session when booking greater than one week in advance.   See F.A.Q.s below for details.   Due to the uncertainties of the weather, I only book a limited number of sessions each week.  

Please book early.
