Colburn Family | Sunset Session | Ocean City, NJ

When Becky contacted me in January about scheduling a July family beach portrait session, I knew I wanted to push a sunset time frame. When the shoot day arrived, Becky and I exchanged several text messages about the shifting rain/thunder storms that loomed overhead, and waited patiently for 5pm to roll around. Sure enough as I saw Becky and her family walking towards our meeting location, the sky opened up, a cool breeze rolled in, and we got blessed with the most smooth, lovely golden hour light.

Spending time watching Becky + Chet's nine month old son Luke be loved up by family warmed my heart. This was my fourth session  photographing a special event for this family, and every time I become more excited. Eleven months prior I photographed Becky + Chet at their first home, watching Chet rub her tummy not yet knowing it was baby Luke that grew inside. That full circle part of my career always brings me to an emotional place, and I am forever grateful when a returning Client continues to invest trust in me to document such precious, pivotal times in their lives.

Below the gallery is a highlight video from this family session, give it a whirl.
