After being at the Gulf Coast capturing client’s Fine Art Beach Portraits and evaluating the situation there, I have to say I am very proud of my American neighbors. There were many more vacationers there enjoying the beaches, the shops and the hotels then I expected. I don’t know what the numbers are as far as people traveling to that area, but I do say the energy was good and people were enjoying the beautiful Gulf Coast sunset!

Now it is time to save the beaches and wild life that are less fortunate. Please link your self with various organizations like Restore the Gulf (link below). And give what you can to help!

Restore the Gulf

Here are some pictures from my sessions “at the beach with Jenn Ocken!”Thank to all my clients for taking the time to hang with me on the beach! Enjoy!

Remember the Maternity Portraits we showed you in an earlier post back in May! (you can see it here)

Did you know that a female can’t come in contact with a Buddhist monk? That was the first thing that was said to me when I arrived to Amy’s house for the ceremony honoring her and her new husband Josh! Much thanks to Amy and Josh for allowing Ocken Photography to be apart of there wedding weekend! We wish you many wonderful days and comforting nights together.

Bob’s 9 year-old daughter, Maddy, assisted her dad and Jenn at a bridal shoot last week in northern Michigan. Jamie Anne (the bride) had a great time flirting with Maddy’s camera. At one point Maddy had such great confidence to ask her aunt Jennifer to move out of the way. Below is a sample of her work from the shoot, and

one was displayed as an 8×10 at the wedding. We are so proud of our little Maddy!
