A bright spot between a few days of rain
Spring showers are in full force here in South Jersey, but last weekend we were lucky enough to catch some beautiful sun and a gentle breeze for our portrait session with the LaBar family. Their boys were so sweet and we had such a great time working with them and capturing some beautiful portraits of their family!
We were so excited that they wanted to host their portrait session at Red Bank Battlefield Park, one of our favorite local spots! Red Bank Battlefield Park is in National Park, NJ, and is conveniently located off Route 130, Interstate 295. The park is huge and has a little bit of everything you could want for a portrait session: beautiful trees, open field spaces, a river-front beach, and even a historic home-turned-museum. It is one of the most versatile and varied spaces that we’ve worked at throughout the state of New Jersey, in Philadelphia, or beyond!
Just look through some of our favorite photos from the LaBar family’s portraits below and see for yourself why Red Bank Battlefield Park is one of our favorite local spots!
First: A Seasonal Surprise!
Seriously, what could be more beautiful than some perfectly-bloomed trees to give a light and romantic look to your family photos! We were super lucky to catch these trees in bloom, since they don’t stay like this for very long!
Next: Beachy Themes
Want some next-level variety in your family photos? Red Bank Battlefield Park absolutely delivers on this. Where else can you take a 2 minute walk and go from beautiful tree-lined fields and paths onto a small rocky beach, complete with a pier that gives off some serious boardwalk vibes? Listen, we aren’t far from the Jersey Shore and love taking that drive to do a beach photo shoot, but we’ll take this location as a super-close dupe any day!
Finally: A Touch of Texture
Our love of old, textured bricks knows no bounds and we love Red Bank Battlefield Park for this! This home is known as the Whitall House and is actually a museum on the same property as the park. We love it for it’s historic charm as well as the gardens surrounding it.
Thinking about having a new set of family portraits done for your family? We’d love to chat! Send us a note and let’s plan some beautiful pictures for your family, at Red Bank Battlefield Park or anywhere else in our beautiful corner of the world!
