Simply Gorgeous!A maternity beach session, at sunset, with one of the nicest couples ever! I met Dee and Mike about a year ago when they had a large family session held at a nearby park, and over the year we kept in touch. I was so excited when she mentioned a beach session for their maternity pictures. It was a perfect night...not many out on the beaches of New Jersey and the sun peeked in and out for a bit and then just set perfectly with this warm glow, to match the mama-to-be's glow!   &n... read more.
