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!
