A Boardwalk Session
A session filled with laughter, fun, treats, and amusement rides all on the boardwalk!
Are you looking for a photo-shoot on the beach, but not your a-typical kind of shoot? Something fun, bright, and authentic? The Overby family wanted to do just that.
Their twins were celebrating their birthday soon and they love spending time at the beach. Especially in Ocean City, New Jersey! When Ashley had contacted me on Instagram with her ideas for the session I knew it was going to be fun. We both loved the idea of getting photographs on the boardwalk, then heading to Gillian's Wonderland, and ending with some Kohr's ice-cream...and that is exactly what we did! Oh yes, lets just say the twins loved those ideas as well!
The twins had so much fun running around on the boardwalk and posing for me! They were the perfect little models! I think the incentive of merry-go-rounds and ice-cream might've helped that. They brought along a little spider man figure that was going to help the kids smile for the pictures. It was so cute when the twins handed him to me to help with the photo session.
Fun at Gillian's Wonderland
One of the fun things about Ocean City New Jersey is the boardwalk. There are amusement parks, water parks, putt putt golf and all kinds of yummy food on the boards, that is the what the locals call it. Gillian's Wonderland, and amusement park, has been around for many years and has become a tradition for many people that visit the boardwalk every year. We all had fun watching the rides, and going on the merry-go-round. Capturing photographs on the merry-go-round, riding it backwards, created some fun pictures, but definitely led to a dizzy photographer!
I loved capturing the loving moments between the twins on the boardwalk, and the special moments with mom and dad. The rides on the boardwalk create such a perfect backdrop for photographs. They make the photos more fun, colorful, and completely capture what we all imagine a beachy boardwalk to be.
As you can see, the boardwalk was not as crowded this day. The perfect time to schedule a session like this is before or after the busy season. Typically before the last week of June on a weekday is a perfect time to plan for, or after Labor Day!
Who Screams for Ice-Cream!?
The perfect ending to our session was a walk, well it started as a walk but turned into a run, to the nearest Kohr's ice-cream stand! You can just see the joy on the twin's faces! When I say they loved their treat, that is an understatement!
I love these sessions. They are so refreshing from my other shoots, not that I don't adore those too! It was a fun-filled day, and I was able to capture some memories to last a life-time for the Overby's! Thank you for having me!
