Boys Will Be Boys in South Jersey

What does it mean to be a boy? Oh, boy.  I love boys.  I have one of my own.    There’s always a certain kind of magical element watching your child grow and to see the testosterone starting and play its role in their ongoing physical and emotional development. Boyhood is a time where you explore, play, wander on adventures, and develop such an unexplained curiosity for the world around you.

I think what is even more special with these boys, is that they are brothers. You see their “brotherhood” in which is defined as this (when you look it up in the dictionary)… A friendship that cannot be compared to any other, built out of sincerity and love, will always have each others backs. You see this in these images.  The love and mutual respect, they as brothers, have for one another.  Which is why I absolutely loved this session! You see the bond that they have screaming out loud and clear, in these images.

These were some of my favorites from our session!  We had a ton of poses that were not included in this medley that I’ve shown here!

I think in total we got about eighty different poses and photos from this shoot.  It was pretty insane!

Most of all, these boys had fun, mom was happy, and I got to capture these moments that will be treasured forever. This is what makes me love my job, to see and capture love like this because that’s what this is… Love between siblings. This is real love and it shows! My specialty (as I like to say due to my crazy often-unexplored travels across South Jersey and two published books under my belt) I choose interesting locations for a photo shoot.  In my pursuits, I am a big fan of leading lines (which is why you see many road captures with my clients). These leading lines create an interesting atmosphere and background, but also emphasize my subject, which create intriguing captures. I’m blessed to be able to show these magical places all over New Jersey with my clients.

I offer something genuinely unique when it comes to great locations in South Jersey.   Most of the local photographers use Fort Mott, National Park, Smithville, or Batsto (I see these places used time and time again.) Yes, they are great locations and nice to use once in awhile, but these locations have been well-played out!  It is time for something fresh and new!  Are you ready, South Jersey?

Hope to shoot you soon! Get it?
