Meet Laura, a 2019 senior at Owego Free Academy! I had a blast shooting with her, her mom, and her friend Maria.
For her senior session, Laura wanted outfits that would reflect all her different sides. She found most of her clothes at a consignment store the day before!
Laura does a lot of theater and music and runs cross-country. She also just returned from a one-year Rotary exchange program in northern Thailand.
A big thanks to Riverow Books for letting us borrow a children’s book. I love when we can incorporate props into a senior session 🙂
A huge thank you to Laura for a great senior session with The Camera’s Eye! Best of luck in your last year at OFA 🙂
Thanks to ALL of my 2019 seniors and families! Senior sessions might be over, but it’s never too early to start thinking about grad announcements. And if you want to use any of your photos for holiday cards, I need your orders in by Dec 1.! Contact me today 🙂
August is just around the corner, and I’m psyched to share our “Christmas in August” deal with The Camera’s Eye! Book a family portrait session for the month of August, and get 10% off your holiday card order at the end of the year 🙂
The kids are home from school and the landscape is STUNNING!
Gorgeous photos in the great outdoors…professional photography for your Christmas cards…
…and a few MONTHS to decide on designs for your personalized cards with The Camera’s Eye, rather than adding to the last-minute holiday stress…all on top of an excellent discount 🙂
We all know this weather won’t last forever in upstate New York – so call 607-426-6023 or email lisamcqueeney AT gmail DOT com to book your August family portrait session today!
Have some fun now and, with beautiful wall art of your family and some stunning holiday cards and gifts at the ready, you’ll definitely thank me later 🙂
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…)
Shoot me an email at lisamcqueeney AT gmail DOT com to set up your family portrait session today! Have a favorite spot in a local park or dying to do a photo session at the Finger Lakes? We DO travel 🙂
Tis the season – for graduation announcements! My 2016 seniors and their families should make sure to order from The Camera’s Eye NOW to get what they need for their end-of-the-year celebrations 🙂
Even if you’re not planning a party, graduation announcements are a lovely way to share your accomplishments and future endeavors with the world 🙂
I love working with my seniors to craft custom announcements. We can change it all up to match your style – colors, fonts, you name it!
The best part is that they come with matching envelopes and arrive in just 3 days!
Contact The Camera’s Eye to order ASAP to take one more thing off your to-do list before the end-of-the-year festivities begin! Best of luck to all my 2016 seniors finishing out the school year. (You can read more about 2016 senior sessions at The Camera’s Eye here, here, and here, just to name a few places :))
Working with kids at The Camera’s Eye always brings the unexpected, but I love to improv! I recently did a cake smash session for little Clara’s first birthday.
She was not too impressed with the icing on the cake…
So her older sister Layla decided to take advantage of it and stick her fingers in the frosting…so at least someone got to enjoy it!
Layla was celebrating her big fourth birthday a few weeks later with a “Frozen” theme, so I picked up this adorable tiara for her 🙂
A big happy birthday to both kiddos from The Camera’s Eye!
At The Camera’s Eye, we adore doing newborn sessions, and we love helping you announce your little one to the world! Rather than having a set of templates to choose from, I work with new parents to custom design their birth announcements, going back and forth on layouts, size, photo choices, and even the finish of the announcement until you have *exactly* what you want. Here are just a few of the mockups for Dexter:
And some for Ellery:
The newborn shoot is a lot of fun, and so is picking out the photos for announcements and other photo products for your home. And an FYI for new parents…did you know you can send announcements to the Pope, Disney characters, and the President…and get a keepsake response? Who knew?! So make sure to order a few extras when you design your announcements with The Camera’s Eye!
So it’s been nearly….four months 🙂 But I didn’t want to forget to share newborn pictures of Ellie with The Camera’s Eye! You can read Sam’s first-hand account of the session here.
She was nine days old (we did the session on her actual due date!) and, as newborns usually do, slept through almost the whole thing.
And as a bonus…a sample of the birth announcement they ultimately went with, featuring the fall-themed photos from their session 🙂
And as a bonus bonus…her completed canvas cluster, right over the living room mantle 🙂 I made up a few sample cluster arrangements and we worked on it over email:
For yet another bonus…an adorable onesie collage! I love coming up with finished wall art for my clients 🙂
Coming very soon to The Camera’s Eye blog – 3-month photos of this same little munchkin!
At The Camera’s Eye, we’re excited to introduce a New Year’s deal for our customers from 2015! If you had a session and ordered with us last year, you can still get your full CD of images – at a $100 DISCOUNT ($150 instead of $250).

This CD image deal is OVER on January 31st…when we’ll already be in the middle of our Valentine’s Day photo sessions!
You might remember our earlier post by blogger Sam about her daughter’s newborn shoot with The Camera’s Eye. Now what to do with those photos? I’ve written before about how much I LOVE canvas and I LOVE wall art. Well placed photographic art can make your home TRULY yours…especially in the case of a newborn photo shoot 🙂
After walking through a few rooms of Sam’s house, we decided that the best place for her canvas cluster would be above the fireplace in the living room. Another place that I find makes a good spot is above the baby’s changing table, but they were already fully decorated in there 🙂
She sent me her image choices, and I sent back a few files with different configurations (using unretouched images)…
We threw around the idea of mixing black and white and color images – not something I’ve seen much at The Camera’s Eye, but a challenge that I loved to wrap my mind around!
Ultimately, she decided to keep the images all color, and did keep a shot of those adorable little baby feet 🙂 Difficult to use up real estate on anything that isn’t that precious little face, but it adds some nice variety to the images 🙂
I love working from initial shoot to finished photo product with my clients!
Big congrats to this year’s winners of the senior canvas contest at The Camera’s Eye, both from Owego Free Academy! You’ve already met Kelsey, a totally down-to-earth senior with a natural beauty.
And here is Kim, a member of the top volleyball team in the state and an overall total sweetheart!
I’m excited to get these images onto beautiful canvas prints for these lovely ladies 🙂 Thanks to them and the rest of my 2016 seniors for a great senior photo season with The Camera’s Eye. Best of luck with the end of this semester and the rest of your FINAL year of high school!
