Jenna, Rob, Easton, Brooklyn & Baby

I first met Jenna and Rob 10 years ago on a beach in Cape May – on their wedding day. Now, 10 years later and during the COVID-19 pandemic, we met again (while practicing social distancing and myself wearing a mask), this time at Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA – so I can photograph their beautiful family and new baby coming. It was fantastic time – to reconnect, and it meant a lot to both Rob & Jenna, and to me. There is hope and joy in what can be a scary world! I can’t wait to meet their new little girl <3

The Moncrief Family

Cape May, Children portraits, Family Portraits, NJ, Portraits

It was a tad on the cooler side, and very windy, the evening of the Moncrief family’s shoot, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. Their little boy enjoyed exploring in and around the lifeguard chair as well as the sand and water. I love watching kids explore and have fun, and it is those kinds of images I tend to like most.

The Davis Family

Cape May, Cape May Point State Park - Cape May Point, Family Portraits, NJ

I love my repeat clients. I enjoy building a relationship with them and know what I can expect each year, and I am sure it is the same with them. I have worked with the Davis family for almost as long as I have owned Meacreations- so, about 6 years, and always look forward to their visit. This year we returned to Cape May Point State Park (one of my favorite locations for sure) which is where we first met years ago. I can’t believe how fast the girls are growing up, and they only get more beautiful each year.

The Hohf Family

1 year old portraits, Cape May, Cape May Point State Park - Cape May Point, Family Portraits, NJ

I first met Trent and Abby a few years ago when I shot their engagement photos at the Cape May Lighthouse. Yesterday, I got to see them again and meet their beautiful baby girl, Jocelynn. Though the skies looked threatening all day, as soon as we started shooting, they cleared. Every once in awhile there were some sprinkles, but nothing we couldn’t handle. I enjoyed taking them around the grounds to parts they didn’t know existed at the lighthouse. Jocelynn was super sweet the entire time and was interested in everything! I loved my time with them!

The Ramos Family

Children portraits, Family Portraits, NJ, Ocean City

This is the third year I have photographed the Ramos family, and this year there was a new addition, Lucas! I love watching families grow each year. Ari is such a good big sister to Lucas, as you can see in the photos. We met in Ocean City and did some shots on the beach and had fun on the colorful boardwalk. Fun times!

Extended Bradley Family

Cape May, Extended Family Portraits, Family Portraits, NJ

A few years ago, I met the Bradley family and their boys for a portrait session. It was one of my favorite sessions, and I was excited when I saw an email asking about availability for extended family portraits this year. This year, we met at the beach at Grant Street in Cape May. I enjoyed meeting the rest of the family and I was glad that they were up for trying portraits even in less than desirable weather, which turned out to be wonderful.

Lance, Stephanie, and Baby Vogel

Friends I have known for several years now are expecting their baby boy any day! I am super excited for them because I know they will be amazing parents. Lance and Stephanie are filled with such personality, and any time I get to see them I am smiling and laughing so much that it hurts 🙂 We did this photo shoot at their sweet little house in North Cape May and this is something I have been wanting to do, capturing portraits in-home, as I feel it really pulls out personalities and keeps things comfortable.

Can’t wait ’til he arrives!!

Every year I get the pleasure of documenting the Breslin family and I took them to Higbee’s beach in Cape May. This year was extra special because there is a new little Breslin on the way 🙂 I can’t wait to meet him or her next year!

The Kampmeier Family

– Cape May NJ Family Portrait Photographer –

The Kampmeier family were easy going and fun and were ready to shoot when it looked like the weather would be better a day earlier than the date originally planned which was great because I couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous evening! Though a bigger group- everyone was ready to switch in-and-out and made the portrait session effortless. And the kids? They were super adorable! We gathered together along the Delaware Bay in North Cape May near the Cape May – Lewes Ferry. A location I have been too in awhile, and I really enjoyed it!

The Eisched Family

Cape May, Family Portraits, NJ, Sunset Pavilion - Cape May, The Cove Beach

– Cape May NJ Family Portrait Photographer –

I felt so bad that I wasn’t able to make our original shoot date (especially since it was so nice out) due to an unfortunate case of whiplash… but the Eisched family were just as excited about doing the shoot on the earlier proposed rain-date, and this made me feel much better! I think little Leah was enjoying being a model- she had so much fun and was giggling the entire time 🙂 This session was on the Cove Beach in Cape May- a very popular beach which can be filled with people until late in the evening-especially if there have been rainy days earlier- but it is a beautiful location that keeps changing so it never quite looks the same and there are spots where we can go to get away from the crowd.

Welcome, Abigail!

Children portraits, Family Portraits, Newborn portraits, NJ

– Cape May NJ Newborn Portrait Photographer –

As some of you may know, my second shooter, and one of my good friends, Amber, was expecting a baby. I loved seeing her tummy grow as we worked more and more weddings. Well, Miss Abigail made her appearance into the world on August 11th- which also happens to be part 2 of my husband’s birthday (long story). She is so precious, and I can’t wait for my Audrey and her to become friends and play together.

Congratulations Amber & Alex on the birth of your sweet little Abigail!

We met at the Cape May lighthouse, one of my top favorite locations, and the Ragona extended family were brave enough to face the rain- though it had cleared just as we started to take photos so it worked out really well. They were all such a pleasure to work with!

The Deluca Family

Cape May, Family Portraits, Jackson Street, Jackson Street Beach - Cape May, NJ, Portraits

Sometimes the best portrait sessions are the ones that really capture the true interactions of the family- not strictly posed, and kids who just want to hang out. The Deluca family and I met up on a beautiful cooler evening, and had a fun time- and it couldn’t have turned out more perfect.

Enjoy!
