Capture the Moments
Life is all about building memories and sharing time together with those we love. As the years pass, it gets harder and harder to remember certain things - the little details of how someone looked, what we wore, the place we all stayed - so it's important to try and capture those moments in time so that we can hold on to them forever. We take lots of candid shots of the kids on the beach, swimming in the pool, going on the rides but how often do we as parents stop and take pictures of ourselves enjoying those things? If you are like me, rarely. So this post is a good reminder to capture those memories and the time we have together. We have had family pictures done several times now and I will never regret doing it. While it's a financial investment to have professional pictures taken, it's also a way to memorialize those memories and that time together with loved ones.
So if you are staying at Seascape or planning a trip to Wildwood or Cape May this summer, consider having your family pictures done and capture those moments together! Here are a few photographers in Cape May County that you may want to consider but please note, this does not represent every photographer in the area.
With over 2,400 followers on Facebook, Dawn Marie Photography has also been rated a 5 out of 5 stars and when you look at her gallery you'll understand why. There is a $150 sitting fee and then you can chose which package you want to purchase for the prints based on what you are looking for. Dawn Marie packages focus's on the beauty of the photo and as a piece of art, offers images framed, on metal or on canvas. Take a look at her gallery- amazing work!
Shore Love offers standard and mini sessions to make capturing those moments a little more cost efficient. If you are looking for a smaller session, try the mini session at $275. This includes 25-30 edited images and is for smaller groups of 4 or less. The only restriction here is that these are only offered Monday through Thursday. If you want a weekend shot or have a larger group, you will need to bump up to the standard session which is $450. The standard session is for a party of 5 or less (each additional person is $25) and with it you get an hour of photography, all of the edited photos (approx 50-100), two locations and a up to two outfit changes (optional). If you want something unique, check out their picnics! They set up an outdoor picnic for you and your family or friends and then photograph it the entire time. What a great way to spend quality time together and capture those candid moments! Shore Love even offers a date night package - perfect for a proposal!
