Aspen's Day at the Beach... Finally

The blog below was originally published in  Soles of Silk's  Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016. Before  Aspen  did her first photo sets the day following her 18th birthday, we had already discussed going to the beach to do some sets.  Aspen  has always wanted to do some shots out in the sand in her bikinis. Having used Ocean City, MD a few times, I wanted to go somewhere different. I looked into Seaside Heights, NJ - the location where MTV films Jersey Shore. I had been to this small beach town as a kid and remembered a large park on the southern end of the island called Island Beach Park. I checked it out on Google Earth and found all kinds of potential places to use. When I told  Aspen , she was very excited at the prospect. A few weeks ago  Aspen  and I had plans to do an all day trip to Seaside, but the weather forecast called for an 80% chance of thunderstorms for the entire day. We decided to scrap the shoot and reschedule for Labor Day.  W
