Asbury Park

Beach sessions are so much fun! While they are a bit out of the Mercer County area, they are a favorite spot to many clients. I only schedule beach sessions for sessions past 5:00 PM to ensure we are working with less crowds and ideal lighting. The closer we can schedule to sunset, the better. Please keep in mind, beach sessions are subject to an additional travel fee for the location. My favorite beach for photos is Asbury Park, but I do travel to different ones!
