Thank you for reaching today’s blog about Ocean County sunflower field pictures!


I am SO excited to announce that LTP will have a private and exclusive sunflower and wildflower field for photos coming August 2017! I have teamed up with Shore Perfect Farms on West Bay Ave in Barnegat to use land and grown my own flower fields!  This is something I have dreamed of for years.   Duane (the owner of Shore Perfect) and I have been discussing ideas and planning since last year. I have spent countless hours researching different types of sunflowers and trying to devise the perfect layout and plan. I began planting in May 2017 and am experimenting a bit this year to see what will work best in the future! There will be henery wildes, taiyos, mammoth gray stripes, sunspots and maximilian sunflowers.  Each sunflower type creates different types of flowering heads and heights, each with beautiful features.  I really wanted the beautiful wildflowers you see along the parkway and Duane was able to find them for me! I am over the moon that this is all coming together! The large field will have a beautiful mix of sunflowers and wildflowers that will provide continuous blooms.

The first set of planting is sprouting now, the second is in the ground and I have plans for the next three plantings.  My goal was to do things so that there will be constant blooms in August and September. The large field is among a line of very tall trees so sessions should be able to start around 530 pm or as late as 7pm if that is better for your schedule. This first year will be a bit of trial and error, although beautiful during the process, of experimenting to see what will work best!

The images below were taken several years ago of Dylan and I by my friend Megan at Let It Be Photography. My field will be different, but I wanted to give you an idea so you can visualize what you can expect!  The pricing is the same as a regular portrait session, you can find that information on the investment tab of my website  Booking for these sessions will be for around the second week in August and run through September.  I anticipate them to fill up quickly!

Thank you for reading today’s blog about a Princeton University maternity photo session!

I am in an amazing facebook group for photographers.  We roll ideas of each other, talk, help and so much more. A few times a year this group sets up meetings.  We network, have fun, play with camera stuff, compare notes, have drink and more.  Sometimes the group leaders arrange for models to be there.  It’s a great opportunity for new photographers to build their profile and a fun opportunity for more seasoned professionals to just relax and shoot for fun.  To try things we want to do outside of what we know are clients are expecting.  Lucky for me what I LOVE to do is the exact style of photography I provide for my clients! That is what I did with this beautiful, pregnant momma!

Princeton University is amazing.  Seriously stunning.  We used a teeny-tiny part of it.  We each got a few minutes with the model and these were some of my favorite images. Although Princeton University is a hike (about 1.5 hours from LBI) it is SO worth it.  I am hoping to be able to do engagement or wedding photos there soon! It is one of those locations you can walk around for hours and find endless perfect little spots.  Big, grand building with ivy.  Small little nooks with beautiful detail.  Archways. Landscaping. Grand staircases. Pillars. There truly are endless options.  The surrounding town is just as cute!  Lots of little shops and corners that have so much charm and personality.  I can’t wait to go back there!

Thank you for reading today’s blog about New Jersey beach maternity photos!

On Tuesday night I met with CJ and Andrea at one of my favorite beach locations on Long Beach Island.  We spent some time walking the paths that lead to the ocean.  Andrea and CJ were amazing to work with. We talked and laughed he majority of their session! Andrea wore a bright and beautiful, long flowing dress and had her makeup done locally with Beauty By Bridget – theglamyogi on instagram!   As the sun started to set we spent some time under darkening skies by the ocean to then turn around and capture a beautiful and vibrant sunset. Andrea looks amazing with her perfect, little bump!  I am sure she will look even more beautiful as a mother!

Tips for maternity pictures:

  1. Schedule your maternity session when you are around 7 months pregnant.  This will allow you to have a beautiful bump but still be able to move around with ease. Being comfortable and feeling beautiful will make your photos feel more natural and relaxed.
  2. Wear something with layers so that you can remove some for a completely different look.
  3. Pick wardrobe based on the location you decide on mixed with the overall feel you are looking for.
  4. Don’t be afraid to search pinterest and show your photographer some things you are attracted to. It will help them understand your vision better!
  5. Enjoy your growing and changing body.  Embrace the gift you have been given and have fun documenting this time!

Thank you for reading today’s blog about a Sea Shell Resort Wedding LBI!

Today’s blog is about an absolutely wonderful couple – Danielle and Mike.  The couple, their family and friends were all so warm, welcoming and kind.  Danielle wore a beautiful fit and flare lace gown with a full, textured skirt.  Danielle decided to add detailed straps that matched the lace of her dress to her gown, a beautiful and elegant touch.  The bride also wore her mother’s, stunning lace, cathedral veil that is 36 years old. Adding such a stunning piece that holds so much sentimental value was the perfect way to add personality and a meaningful touch to a wedding day. The bridesmaids wore stunning blush gowns with delicate and intricate details on the bodice.  The groom and groomsmen looked handsome in their gray suits with vests!

Reynolds florist provided stunning florals for the day.  The flowers had soft blush tones accented with peonies. The centerpieces were a mix of florals, rustic wood planks and candles that had pillars with romantic added details.  A Sweet memory provided a full dessert bar and beautiful cake.  DJ Monte kept the crowd going all night! The staff at the Sea Shell made for a seamless and wonderful event complete with amazing food for dinner such as duck key chicken and lobster macaroni and cheese.

Mr & Mrs Pisano – your day was beautiful from start to finish.  I hope that you love each other more today then you did yesterday.  Thank you for having LTP as a part of your day and ENJOY hawaii!

Thank you for coming to read today’s blog about the Sea Shell LBI Real Wedding Photos!

Today’s blog is featuring a wedding from Friday night, May 5, 2017, cinco de mayo! Grace and Matt had a beautiful wedding at the Sea Shell Resort in Beach Haven.  Grace looked amazing in her BHLDN gown complete with soft lace and a beautiful halter top.  Grace’s softly curled hair with a small braid was the perfect compliment to her subtle but stunning makeup, all done by Lavish Salon in Beach Haven.  The groom wore a handsome blue suit and the groomsmen white shirts with gray pants.  The bridesmaids wore navy blue “wrap” dresses that allowed them to each create a unique style while all looking complimentary of one another.

It POURED all morning but minutes before we began our portraits the skies cleared and we were able to spend time walking around Beach Haven!  The couple had a beautiful first look and a few moments alone before portraits.  The ceremony was performed by a family member and filled with personal touches like the happy couple explaining to guests how they met.  After the ceremony the Sea Shell held an amazing cocktail hour (like they always do!) and guests enjoyed gourmet food and plenty of drinks.  The reception began with the formal dances and speeches and seamlessly moved into dinner where the Sea Shell debuted some fresh, new menu selections and they did not disappoint!

The night was filled with laughter, dancing and drinks all around.  Thank you Grace and Matt for allowing us to be apart of such a beautiful and memorable day!
