I had such a lovely time with this adorable family, hanging out on the Jersey Shore for their family portrait session. The little guy was the winner of my Cutest Kid Photo Contest this past spring and boy does he embody "cute"! It was nothing but fun, sun, and sand on a beautiful summer day!
After winning the contest, mom thought about what would best suit their family for a session and easily decided that a beach session would be perfect for them! They spend their weekends down in Sea Girt and wanted some light and airy art to decorate the walls of their beautiful home that would perfectly compliment the bright, beachy decor. I always encourage families to think about these sorts of details when planning their session (where the photos will go, what kind of location suits their family's personalities, etc.) and it was wonderful to see a family answer these questions so exactly for themselves.
The little guy was clearly at home on the beach. He loved showing me how much fun it was to jump off the rocks and dig in the sand. The wonder of listening to the ocean in a shell while staring out at the ocean was priceless.
The whole family looked so dapper in their gorgeous playful colors. Mom and dad needed no direction--they knew just how to have fun with little man. They walked along the water line, did some tosses, and helped their little boy jump off the big rocks. What fun! I loved watching mom and dad simply adore their little guy.
If you haven't been down to Sea Girt, New Jersey, you really need to check it out. It's the cutest little town with a gorgeous little strip of beach with a few small rocky outcroppings. I definitely have the Saltwater Heart that Switchfoot sings about, so I felt right at home for this energetic, candid session! Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!
