Whether or not your family spends much time down the shore, beach portraits in NJ are so fun to commemorate a special trip or to capture a more playful side of your loved ones.
Plus, photos on the beach are always so dreamy. The way the light peeks over the grassy slopes and reflects off the water is hard to beat–there’s something so magical and carefree about running barefoot through the sand and splashing through the water!

As an Ocean City, NJ photographer, I spend a lot of time at America’s Greatest Family Resort with my husband and in-laws. From Gillian’s Wonderland Pier all the way to Corson’s Inlet State Park, these are my favorite photographs in OCNJ!
The long skinny peninsula that makes up Long Beach Island, NJ is full of quiet beaches, vast stretches of white sands, and lush seaside foliage. From Barnegat Lighthouse to the Holgate Beach Wilderness, there are endless beautiful spots to take family photos on the beach!
Avalon and Stone Harbor in Cape May County have such a fun stretch of boardwalk to wander. Here are a few of my favorite extended family photos in Avalon, NJ:
The little Wildwood trolley that crosses the boardwalk and passes by the famous Wildwoods beach ball sign is so cute! I really enjoyed exploring Wildwood Crest for this beach family photoshoot.
The Jersey Shore is very different from the beaches where I grew up. The water stays warm throughout the summer months, the boardwalk is filled with happy sunbathers defending their treats from the seagulls, and colorful umbrellas crowd the coastline.
It’s the perfect place to capture long-lasting memories with your family, that you’ll treasure for generations.
