I truly love the beach and one of my favorite sessions to do. From June until September this year, that is basically all I did besides lavender sessions. The New Jersey shore was my home and I honestly don’t mind it one bit.
We did sessions in LBI, Atlantic City, Ocean City, Sea Isle, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Wildwood and Cape May Beach sessions are our most coveted sessions and they tend to sell out quickly.
My go to look is generally pastels. I love adding beautiful color to beach skies. So I usually ask clients to stay with a general color theme when they come into our sessions. I love baby blues, pinks, yellows and lilacs for the beach. Lavender is ultimately my favorite. I love how I can edit around this color and incorporate all the lovely beach tones. I even provide the wardrobe for this color scheme so as to make everything look perfect.
For something dramatic, like maternity photographer, black can even be eye catching. However, wouldn’t suggest an entire family in black as would be too harsh for an entire family.
This little lady killed her beach session this year. She’s wearing a cute little romper from tutu du monde and holding a lantern.
These lanterns are a huge hit. I have a ton of them with different light combos. If you are a photographer and working with little children, this can be a lifesaver. The kiddos get fascinated with them. It also adds some artistic pop to your images.
Try them out in your next session! All you need is a lantern and battery powered lights and voila!
Happy Shooting, my friends!
