First Portrait Session

I just visited my family back in NJ for 10 days with my daughter.  She needed her poppy and grandma fix. While I was there, I got the chance to do my very first official portrait session.  Okay, so my first non-family paid session.  It was great.  Super challenging, and I learned a lot.  Loads to work on for future sessions.  Thank you so much Lisa for this opportunity, and am so glad you enjoyed the shoot and the images.  You are truly a great person.

So, here are some of my favorite images.

This is Lisa, her brother Jeff, and her dog Jolly.  Boy, adding a dog to the mix sure does add new challenges.  Challenges that I love!  

We did this in Asbury Park, NJ on the beach.  We found a bar attached to the convention center that was closed but had loads of great furniture on its patio that we used for props.  They were just perfect.


We moved over to the other end of the beach and up on the boardwalk after those shots.  We went into the old Casino, that is just a shell now that people can run through.  Though, it does have the most interesting interior that makes for amazing backgrounds.

And my last favorite:
