Hot Flashes / Marlboro NJ Photographer

Marlboro family Photographer/ Hot flashes

          Marlboro NJ family Photographer / Hot flashes here guys, seriously these hot Flashes are out of control! Being a family photographer I figure there has to be women reading this, right? Hence, I assume someone  should have some kind of advice for me, I wake up every morning all snuggly and not one minute later I am on fire. It feel as if, it went from a perfect temperature to sitting in a pool of sweat. In my office in Manalapan NJ. Which does not look like the photo below. Nor do I drink as the photo below suggests, I just happen to see that photo and all that beautiful Bokeh reminds me of heat !

When I take my client’s on the beach at the Jersey Shore there is always a breeze! This way, when I take beach photos inevitably I end up with my feet in the water! This year, this tradition will have a different meaning. “Your Photographer” will be doing it so she can feel the cool water on her feet ! This is slightly pathetic isn’t it? I am supposed to be writing blogs for you guys to learn about me and other sessions that I have done. Because this will make you feel more at ease when looking for your family photographer instead its a help me hormones blog! For any women of that age or women well past menopause I am sending out an SOS! What can I do that will help? So I can feel like the photo below?

  • Heather - While I haven’t entered menopause yet, I do take medication which leaves me with “hot flashes” during the day, so I feel your pain. I hear of some very successful natural remedies but haven’t looked into it too much as mine is medication induced. I know there are women who swear by some homeopathic cures. I’ll ask around!ReplyCancel

    • admin / Glenna - Im sorry Hot Flashes are crazy Medicine induced or not- a hot flash is a hot flash !!! I did hear sweet potatoes … Peppermint oil…ReplyCancel

Sanibel Family Beach Pictures

Well, the countdown is official. In just over two weeks I will arrive in south-west Florida. First, I will dip my toes in the Gulf of Mexico. Then, I will take some fabulous Sanibel family beach pictures. You see, this is one of my favorite places in the world. In addition to shelling (yes, it’s a verb), enjoying the fabulous weather and visiting some of my favorite places (see more below), I will also be working. Honestly, coordinating a beach photo shoot is always special to me.

Beach Pictures in Sanibel

Sanibel -Island- Photography

Understand, I LOVE the beach. A self-proclaimed “Jersey Girl” and New Jersey family photographer, I have always felt at home taking photos on the beach. While summer beach photos on the Jersey Shore are fantastic,my life as a Sanibel Island photographer has provided me so many memorable experiences.

The Elements Provide a Fabulous Setting

Maybe, it’s the water. It’s warm, especially by my standards. Capturing children on the beach, playing at the water’s edge is so much fun! And, what I have noticed is that you don’t need to be a kid to love the water. Pictures taken near it always have an extraordinary feel to them.

Or, it could be the sand. You see, the sand in Sanibel is FILLED with shells. Honestly, it’s a shell-lovers dream. You can walk for miles and collect them. They are beautiful. Imagine owning a photograph of your child gathering shells on Bowman’s Beach. The wonder of the experience will be documented in a family beach photo for a lifetime.

Truly though, whether I’m taking family beach photos, engagement photos or maternity photos in Sanibel, I love to incorporate the incredible sunset. Remember, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. In Sanibel, the sun dipping below the horizon makes for a magnificent photo backdrop. In short, this is the perfect setting for a couples photo shoot or an engagement photo shoot.

Why Sanibel Island

Sanibel- Island -Photographer

Obviously, Sanibel is special to me. I have been traveling to the Island for what seems like forever.  And, I have been taking beach pictures here ever since I began to visit. For me, returning to Sanibel multiple times, every year, is like my own personal therapy. I visit all of my favorite places like The Island Cow, Turner Beach and the Lazy Flamingo.

I will be in Sanibel from April 19th through April 27th. So, if you are looking to have professional photos taken, please let me know. Also, Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching. Without a doubt, this is the perfect time and the perfect location for some fabulous family beach pictures. In fact, there is incredible value in hiring a professional to photograph you and your family. Photos capture memories and last a lifetime.

Mom & Me Photo Shoot: A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift!

What to get Mom for Mothers Day? NJ family photographer.

What to get mom for Mothers Day

If you haven’t begun to think about celebrating Mother’s Day, you should!  In fact, the holiday is less than two months away.  So, now is the perfect time to begin to make plans to honor your mom (or your grandma, your aunt or the special woman in your life).  Trust me, I know how difficult it can be to think of a unique way to celebrate these relationships; every year I spend endless time trying to identify the perfect gift! Have you considered a Mom & Me Photo Shoot with a professional photographer?

Solving the Mother’s Day Gift Dilemma – A Mom and Me Photo Shoot

Celebrate your mom (or mother-figure) this year with a mom & me photo shoot!  Wait, maybe I should rephrase this. Don’t think this idea is limited to toddlers and moms.  In fact, this type of photo shoot can capture relationships that span generations. While photos of you and your young children are heartwarming, so are family photos of teens and moms (and grandmas), and adults with their mothers.  You may even want to consider a multi-generation  photo shoot; imagine how memorable that can be. Understand, relationships evolve over time; capturing them in the moment, forever, is perhaps one of the greatest gifts you can give.

Gift The Photo Shoot

The experience of participating in a photo shoot with a professional photographer is truly special. It is the gift of quality, uninterrupted time together. Honestly, watching the interactions between mothers and their children, when they have the opportunity to truly focus on each other, is incredible. As a NJ family photographer, I love working with my clients to determine the best location and time for a photo shoot. Together we can select a place where they can relax, unwind and connect. Beach photo shoots are often popular.  That said, I simply want them to be able to enjoy their time together.  Don’t worry about manufacturing “photo moments”; they will occur naturally and I will capture them for her!

The Photos

In addition to the experience, your mom and me photo shoot will yield beautiful family pictures; ones which will truly illuminate the essence of your relationships and capture your lives at a specific moment in time.  We all know how rapidly things change; time really does fly. Documenting your life with your family is invaluable. Pictures last forever. You can enjoy them now and perhaps appreciate them even more as time goes by; creating concrete memories on which to reminisce is something to be appreciated.

Mother’s Day 2019

Schedule your mom and me professional photo shoot for Mother’s Day 2019. First, consider your options. You can give the gift of a Mother’s Day photo shoot now. Spend time enjoying each other as I document the interaction or for  Mother’s Day, relax together at a local spa (we hear Avanti is lovely), or have brunch or dinner at your favorite restaurant. And purchase a gift certificate. You can gift wrap the family pictures and present a beautiful and lasting memory.

Or, if you’d rather, gift the photo shoot!

Of course you should still celebrate on Mother’s Day. However, you can schedule a date after the holiday to have the family pictures taken. So, spend the holiday together and present a gift certificate for the photo shoot providing your mom a fun-filled day in the near future. This guarantees both precious time together and beautiful professional photos that capture both the experience and your relationship.

Think about it; how many family pictures exist where Mom actually appears?  For example, so many of us simply have kids pictures. For some reason, as moms we tend to take the pictures, not pose for them (except, of course, for the obligatory selfie). In short, a mom & me photo shoot taken by a professional photographer ensures you will be an active part of the experience and that those closest to you will have photos to last a lifetime.
