I don't know about you, but these cold temps are making me think about warmer weather.
Last summer, my family went to Long Beach Island for a week. It was our first time down there, despite having lived in New Jersey my entire life. And I have to thank this family, because if they hadn't brought me down for a family session on the beach, I'm not sure we would have considered this lovely island, despite it being so close!
They stayed in an area called Harvey Cedars, which was just beautiful. And we got to the beach early enough that for most of the morning, we were the only people there. It was wonderful!
This was my first beach session, and I hope it won't be my last. It was such a pleasure to be present to photograph part of this extended family's vacation.
