Long Branch, NJ 2017 Family Photo Shoot with Jessica Justin Photography

Meet me where the sky touches the sea. Wait for me where the world begins.
— Jennifer Donnelly

Love is evident in the looks, the smiles, the laughter, and the subtle touches all around.  So lucky I get to tell these stories.

Fair Haven, New Jersey Family Photographer

This photo shoot was very special to me.  This beautiful mom is like a sister to me and we have been best friends since elementary school.  When she decided to move over an hour away, I was definitely sad, but why?  Distance only makes the heart grow fonder, right?  After being there for each other during so many of life's special moments, it was only fitting to document the start of their new lives.   So honored to be able to capture their love for one another...



Long Beach Island Family Tradition

As another summer rolls to an end, I wanted to share a tradition my family embraces each summer.  For eleven years we have enjoyed renting the same beach house in beautiful Holgate, Long Beach Island.  It is our little oasis on the Jersey Shore.  Nine of us living together in one house for one week--a little crazy at times, but cherished none the less. A tradition. Some may think doing the same thing-same place would be boring, NOT us.  Instead, we anticipate our "traditions"...meeting at the diner at 9 am for breakfast before getting into our house...our first dinner out and mini-golf night...the rides and games at Fantasy Island-each year getting a little braver...the annual treasure hunt my dad and daughter create together for her younger cousins...dusk on the beach...kites...bikes...the water park..ice cream at Bay Village (almost every night)...cocktails on the roof top deck watching the best sunset ever!  Looking back, this special week is what started my love of photography-of capturing my daughter through out the years.  I fell in love freezing the story of our week.  We now have eleven photo-books documenting each year.  Many events stay the same, but it is priceless seeing the kids grow up and the joy that only the beach can bring!

Jessica Justin Photography, Senior BFF Photo Shoot in Asbury Park, New Jersey

Greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey!  There is nothing like the Jersey Shore...beautiful beaches, gorgeous sunsets, and who could forget the amazing Boardwalk food.  I was so excited to bring four best friends to explore the Asbury Park beach and boardwalk for an adventurous photo shoot.  We had a blast!  These seniors have the whole world ahead of them and are beautiful inside and out:)  Here's to the Class of 2016!
