We’ve wrapped up our senior season at The Camera’s Eye, but there are STILL a few seniors to blog about! Meet Jenn, who is nothing short of busy – she’s a student at Owego Free Academy, but ALSO an early college program student at SUNY Broome. This also means that her schedule is less-than-traditional, so I asked if she would be able to come to Watkins Glen with me for her senior session, and she jumped on it!
Watkins Glen is a huge attraction because of its beauty, and an all time fave of mine from shooting weddings there at the start of my career with The Camera’s Eye. I’ve always wanted to try out the scenery there in ANYTHING but a white dress!
It was also perfect for Jenn’s senior photos for a couple of reasons. #1 She LOVES ivy. Whether it’s climbing, crawling, or hanging, she’s all about it, so we made sure to get plenty of senior pictures with ivy in them.
#2 Her grandpa used to love sailing, so the shots with the boats in the background are sure to be a huge hit!
As with a lot of my senior sessions at The Camera’s Eye, we spent most of the time laughing…a LOT. One of the funniest moments: My mom came along for the shoot and Jenn and I were waiting for her while she was in the bathroom. A man walked by the two of us and said, “It’s such a wonderful thing seeing a mother and daughter out bonding together!” We thanked him and then both cracked up laughing :)… a. because that was a hoot but b. MY MOM is NEVER on a shoot with me and was ACTUALLY there – just in the restroom!
Best wishes to Jenn in her work at OFA and SUNY Broome!
