I was so excited to capture this growing family just weeks before they welcome their first baby into the world! Everything about this evening was just dreamy! Starting with this absolutely gorgeous Momma, her amazing dress, the gorgeous sunset light on the beach, and the perfect late spring waiting for summer air! It all added up to perfection! This little guy is so lucky to have these two amazing people waiting for him!

Just look at this beautiful family! When I shoot family portraits there are a lot of things that are important to me. But one thing is at the top of that list, and that is connection. As families we so deeply connected to our partners and our children and I want that to show in every image that I capture. I like my families to get snuggly, to move in close, to do the things they do when they are not being photographed by a stranger. It is that connection, that intimacy that makes amazing family portraits. Then through the years when clients glance at the image or take a moment to linger over it, I want them to be reminded of the moment and memory of the day it was created and I want that memory to fill their hearts.
If you are looking to capture images of your family that are filled with connection and love and show who you truly are as a family, I would love to help you create these images. If you are in or near Margate, NJ, please contact me to book your session. Nicole Giliigan Photography serves the Jersey Shore area including the towns of Longport, NJ, Ocean City, NJ, Ventnor, NJ, The Wildwoods, Sea Isle City, NJ, Avalon, NJ, Stone Harbor, NJ, and beyond.

I was so lucky to have the chance to photograph this beautiful family in Ocean City, NJ. Our beach towns offer so much more than just beautiful beach locations. This lovely park space was the perfect location for capturing some fall inspired images. Family photo sessions give us the chance to step out of normal routines, get dressed up, and have a fun and intimate experience while creating lasting memories. It's a great excuse to connect and get ice cream afterwards! Everyone wins. Including me, who loves to document these moments for families.

Tulips are one of the very best signs of spring! They seem to whisper goodbye to winter and I love that! I spent the evening with these two lovely ladies in their Easter dresses and they were just the sweetest little loves! Spring and Easter and are great times to think about updating family photos. Things feel fresh and new, and everyone is excited to get outside and explore some great new places to take photographs! These shots were taken outside of City Hall in North Wildwood. These guys do a great job with their flowers, and combined with some beautiful evening light this spot was just divine! Please be in touch to arrange your photo shoot!

Here at Nicole Gilligan Photography we are getting ready for summer! What does that mean? Getting out the beach buckets, buying new hats, daydreaming about the ocean, and getting ready for portraits on the beach. Summer is an amazing time at the Jersey Shore. We come here and find the best of ourselves, often waiting right there where we left it last summer. The towns of the Jersey Shore hold our memories, our hearts, our favorites foods and smells, and a piece of who we truly are. Every year we relieve the moments of so many summers past and find delight in the fact that very little has changed. Most important of which is our feelings about this place. Every summer since third grade I have spent my summers in North Wildwood. Spending endless days on the beach with my Mom and Dad as a kid, working as a waitress through my high school and college years, and squeezing in as many days as possible as an adult. Now, my greatest joy comes from having my two girls at the Jersey Shore. Nothing fills my heart quite like watching them run in the sand. Even dragging them back sandy, hungry, and tired is what the shore is all about. My walls are covered with portraits of my girls at the beach. It keeps the memories of summer alive all year round. If you plan to be at the Jersey Shore (Margate, Longport, Ocean City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, North Wildwood, Cape May) and would like to capture images of your children or family on the beach I would love to work with you. I am most at home with my feet in the sand and a camera in hand. Contact me to arrange a fun and relaxing evening on the beach!
