At The Camera’s Eye, I love working with sporty seniors! We can get some striking shots by incorporating their athletic interests into their senior session. Anya, a senior from Owego Free Academy, was willing to jump into the pool so we could show off her love for swimming!
Anya has been swimming with the same group of girls since they were all very young, and they’ve traveled to state championships nearly every year. I even had the pleasure of meeting one of Anya’s teammates, who helped her get her knee skin on for our shoot. If you’re NOT a a swimmer – well, let me just say that the whole process is a fiasco, and hysterical to hear about. It took the two of them about 15 minutes to squeeze her into it, and THAT was record timing.
In addition to the swimming shots, Anya was intent on getting a few senior photos with sunflowers. Anya’s family is Ukrainian, and sunflowers are big in the Ukraine. We searched high and low until we found the right spot!
Anya just looks like she belongs in the outdoors! Love her range of outfits – I guess the knee skin counts as an outfit in this case? 🙂 We went with a mix of outfits – simpler outfits, more outgoing outfits, and even a traditional Ukrainian top.
I also love this quiet black-and-white photo…simply pensive and poised.
Good luck to Anya with everything her final year at OFA will bring, both in and out of the pool!
