Mark, Kelly and Graham :: Spring Lake Family Photos
I’m truly humbled to share this session. I actually met Mark and Kelly about 4 years ago when Mark proposed to Kelly at Kotta Sushi in Belmar. Mark hired me to capture the proposal he perfectly planned out and it was a complete success.
Four years later, a wedding and now a growing family…I finally had the pleasure of meeting their first born son, Graham! I was absolutely honored and so excited when Mark reached out about getting portraits taken for Kelly as a Mother’s day gift. It means a lot when a client follows your work, appreciates your craft and commends you on what you deliver. I can’t express enough gratitude for being able to work with Mark and Kelly again and now meeting their son has been such a great privilege in my career.
Our session took place at Devine Park in Spring Lake, New Jersey. Graham happened to skip the nap this day so he was a bit on the serious side but we manage to get some giggles and smiles out of him (shout out to Amie for being her awesome silly self assisting me!). After the park we took a quick trip to the beach and Graham got to experience the sand for the first time – and I captured it! What a moment! He was ecstatic! He basically wanted to eat the sand, so mom and dad had to quickly reposition his sandy hands elsewhere for photos hehe.
Take a peek at some of my favorite photos below. Enjoy!
We got those giggles from serious Graham! 🙂
Graham’s face makes me think he’s thinking: “What on earth are my parents doing?”
We always have to include the cute, funny, embarrassing moments – right? 🙂
Graham LOVED the sand! He’s going to be a beach bum!
