Haley + Ryan
location: cape may, new jersey
For Haley and Ryan's very first anniversary they wanted to do something special, so Haley decided that it was her turn to be on the other side of the camera. When it came down to picking a location for their session, she knew instantly where she wanted it to be. Cape May has held a special place in Haley's heart for as long as she can remember. Her grandparents had lived there since before she was born and Haley's always loved going to visit them and spending time at the beach. She might be a little bit biased, but she thinks it's the prettiest beach she knows and loves it for its rolling sand dunes, peaceful seclusion from the surrounding beaches, and glowing sunset that falls over the water (a rare thing to see on the East Coast).
If you know Haley and Ryan, you know that they are the most loving dog parents and spoil their baby girl like no other. So there wasn't even a moment of consideration when deciding to have their pup, Luna, as a part of the shoot. Plus, Cape May is also Luna's favorite place in the world and would have been pretty angry if she knew they went without her.
When it came down to shoot day, we had a blast running around the beach taking photos. We had a mostly cloudy day, but the sun peeked out for just a moment to give us some beautiful glowing sunset images. Haley, Ryan, and Luna are the sweetest people I know and I'm so happy that I was able to capture these moments for them. As I post this session, this marks my first week working full time with Haley and I'm so grateful that she has trusted me to work alongside her. Happy anniversary Haley and Ryan!
