Does it get any more Jersey than this?! My excitement when mom, Alicia, told me Dean was having a Jersey Shore inspired birthday was through the roof. I met Alicia years ago when her first little boy was turning one. Since then, she has really trusted me to continue photographing her family and I'm so thankful for them.
For Dean's birthday I wanted to do something different; how could I capture the shore in a way that is classic and will stand the test of time? I've been working with an amazing set designer who customized this backdrop for me. She listened to my thoughts and within one night created this beauty. Her attention to detail was just inspiring. I then went ahead and added a few more beachy elements to add a little more depth.
Dean's outfit change might be my favorite part. He rocked the sun glasses and was all smiles. He also thoroughly enjoyed his cake!
Happy first Jersey Shore birthday little guy!!!
