2017 Senior Photos with The Camera’s Eye!

I’m staying busy as can be shooting senior sessions at The Camera’s Eye! Hard to believe we’ve gone from SNOW…

…to ENDLESS summer days! And I’m loving meeting each and every 2017 senior from Owego, Vestal, Apalachin…you name it! 🙂

To top it all off…a BIG thank you to Tom Ash Insurance for hosting me as the artist of the month for June! You can see lots of my work with last year’s seniors in the windows the next time you’re taking a stroll downtown.

Family Photos in Beautiful Upstate New York!

It’s that time of year when Central New York reveals its true beauty to us…and the best time for professional outdoor portraits with The Camera’s Eye! In addition to senior sessions, we’re now booking family portraits in the great outdoors.

It makes sense to do family portraits over the summer. (After all, the kids are home from school…or did you not notice the increased noise and maybe the clutter that keeps accumulating in the rooms you just cleaned…?) If you wait until August, you might have to scramble to work around everyone’s schedules, all while prepping for the start of the school year – so why not book today?

Not only will you have a forever memory of your family, and the makings of beautiful wall art for your home, but you’ll also have allll the makings for a custom-designed holiday card with The Camera’s Eye. (Not to get ahead of ourselves in the middle of June or anything…but those holidays DO creep up on us…)

Dress to Impress: Senior Sessions at The Camera’s Eye

During our senior sessions at The Camera’s Eye, I LOVE getting to know you and capturing your personality. And though it’s what’s on the inside that counts, clothing naturally plays an important part of your senior photos, and I get asked a LOT about how to dress…we’ve written about it before, but here are some key tips for this season…

The big biggie: be yourself! There’s no use in taking a bunch of senior photos where you don’t wear what you normally wear and you don’t look or feel like yourself 🙂 People should recognize you in what you wear every day.

I’m an environmental portrait artist…that means we will be trekking through fields, rivers, over rocks, and through funky terrain….THAT means: wear the comfy shoes, and carry the diva heels! I LOVE great shoes, so save them for when we’re actually shooting and I’ll get them in all their glory:)

And as far as shoes go…make sure to match the socks if you’re wearing them. There’s nothing worse than white socks BLAZING out from under your pants and stealing the spotlight from your amazing shoes.

This one is from your mother, but it is the #1 clothing retouch requested from your mothers….check for wrinkles in your clothes before you come and HANG your outfits prior.

Ladies: think about your undergarments!  Straps other than the ones holding your shirt or dress up are DISTRACTING from your face. Straps distract!
TheCamerasEye, Seniors02
Most of all..SHARE with me… tell me what you’re bringing! Text or Snapchat your clothing choices.  I’ll plan around your outfits and it will remind us both to bring props, sporting equipment, locker room keys, jerseys, etc. 🙂

Remember, I’m a professional photographer…which means I do MORE than just snap the camera. I WANT to work with you before and after our session to get  the photos you want 🙂 One of the best ways we can collaborate is over Pinterest…check out our senior style and senior photos boards to get pumped for your session!

Summertime Splash Session with Ellie

Since my favorite little 8-month-old is finally sitting up, we decided to do a fun-in-the-sun outdoor shoot with The Camera’s Eye.

She loves bathtime (and recently learned that she loves pools and the ocean on a trip to Florida), so we figured we would stick her in a bucket and see what happened 🙂

We couldn’t have picked a better day – it was the day before Memorial Day, and blazingly hot. Just the right weather for cooling off in a baby-sized tub 🙂

I love doing baby photos of all ages at The Camera’s Eye, but the ones where they are finally sitting up are the MOST fun. Kids this age are giggling, exploring, and ready to roll!

She’s grown so much since her newborn shoot – it’s incredible! Looking forward to seeing more of her and my other clients for summer photos with The Camera’s Eye 🙂
