Once a year, Carol Ann and her family travel to Avon by the Sea for their annual summer vacation. This year was extraordinary as Carol Ann and her husband, Tom, celebrated their fortieth anniversary of marriage in Avon! This year we celebrated and captured their anniversary and Carol Ann’s granddaughter’s birthday! To make this a very special session, we captured their Avon by the Sea summer family portrait session on the beautiful boardwalk in Avon and celebrated this beautiful evening at sunset! 

 

Family Portrait Session

Avon has a very special place in the heart of this family. Many memories have been shared in Avon, and many memories are to be created here with Carol Ann and future generations! Summer vacations to Avon have been completed year and after, for generations. 

It is so wonderful to meet this family year and capture Carol Ann’s granddaughter grow!

While photographing, it was essential to capture a few extraordinary photos at the Avon beach house and then make our way towards the waterfront.

We made our way towards the pavilion, walking hand in hand, sharing a few laughs, and overlooking the beautiful Atlantic.

Karen and John welcomed their newborn son on a beautiful winter day in January. Just a few weeks following welcoming their newborn into the world, this growing family celebrated the birth of their son with a lifestyle photography session in the comfort of their own home photographed by New Jersey Family Photographer, Michelle Behre.

We loved this families in-home newborn session. Their session is so bright, full of laughter, and so much joy!

We’re so honored to have worked with such an amazing family on this one and excited to share just a few from their session.

This family coordinated their colors to match the design of their in-home nurseries. Not to mention, Karen is a talented creative herself and business owner at KA Creative!

KA Creative is a women-owned, digital marketing agent servicing New Jersey. Combining her skills as in digital media, marketing management, web design, and graphic design she utilizes her creative skills to her advantage.

It was so wonderful to work beside a fellow creative during the design process. Karen planned for her family’s newborn session to take place in one central location, her home. Moments after New Jersey Family Photographer, Michelle Behre, photographed Karen’s details, she photographed the newborn’s portrait in the comfort of the nursery.

You’re going to want to check this in-home lifestyle family portrait session out! Photographed by New Jersey Family Photographer, Michelle Behre.

This sunrise fall family session closed 2019 with a bang. Together, the Robitzski family and I worked together to capture and commemorate this holiday season with beautiful, heirloom images of their family.

I love the candids captured here and also the beautiful images at the front of the estate. My client took such time, effort, and care in planning their beautiful outfits that not only accentuated the color palette of the venue; however, she carried her colors throughout different outfits and also used a variety of textures. So creative!

Morristown National Historic Park is one of my favorite New Jersey historical venues for the lifestyle family portrait session. Sat in Morris County, New Jersey, this is the perfect historical estate for the working family to capture their portraits. This estate has beautiful grounds and is in the heart of Morris County. Perfect for the working family in Morris and Union County needs a photography venue close to their home and wants a close-to-home feeling for their session. The foliage was perfect and the light of the sunrise was just right for our session.

This sunrise family lifestyle session was absolutely perfectly planned. I am speechless. I am so thankful to have been chosen to capture these special moments for this family. It is my honor to commemorate these heirloom photographs for you and to celebrate the 2019 holiday season by your side. Thank you for your artistic commission. It is such an honor to commemorate the next generation of your family by your side and I am so looking forward to watching your family grow!

This family portrait session was truly a one of a kind. 

The majority of my lifestyle family portrait sessions are hosted in Northern New Jersey and for this session, I had the honor of photographing a destination lifestyle family portrait session and traveled to one of my favorite seaside towns in Monmouth County, New Jersey. This very special lifestyle family portrait session was hosted at Avon-by-the-Sea, in seaside Monmouth County, New Jersey.

We began photography our New Jersey seaside session at a beautiful estate just a few steps away from the beach. The views, ocean air, and beautiful light were magnificent! Most importantly, this private estate holds a very special place to the family history, making this venue even more special! Every step, from the estate, along this boardwalk was so special and I am so happy to have shared such a special time at the beautiful Avon-by-the-Sea waterfront!

This sunset lifestyle family photography session was truly remarkable. I am speechless. It is my absolute honor to commemorate this tradition and to commemorate almost a century of your families tradition that is to be passed down to the next generation!

From the client

Tell us about why you decided to have your portraits taken:

Our family has been vacationing in Avon for over 50 years. My grandparents, both whom have passed, took us to Avon every summer growing up and now with the birth of my daughter we are continuing the Avon family tradition. 

This will be the fourth generation to vacation in Avon by the sea for our family!

When was the last time you had your portraits taken?

My wedding in 2015.

Describe your family in 3 words:

Loving, kind, a close family unit 

What do you want to remember about your family, right now?

 My parents are giving this vacation to their new granddaughter just as our grandparents did for us.

In their words,

Michelle, thank you so much for the most wonderful family evening with you. My parents were so thrilled and we felt so comfortable with you! Thanks for joining in on singing Baby Shark for us! We cannot wait to see the photos!
