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 🙂

MacKenzie is one of my many athletic seniors this year, and I really love her style! She brought a striking striped dress to the shoot, and a really soothing lavender top 🙂

She kept it simple and used her outfits to really capture her personality and style without going overboard, which I love!

You would never know from the photos that she had ACL surgery this summer – she was totally game to bring her brace along and take it off whenever we stopped to shoot.

You’d also never know that we had to reschedule three times due to the weather! Of course it was worth it – MacKenzie was amazing to work with, and we got just the right senior photo session to show her personality and style 🙂

2019 Senior Athletes at The Camera’s Eye

What I love MOST about doing senior photos with The Camera’s Eye is bringing out your passion and your personality! One of the best ways to do this is to bring your sport with you to your session session. Check out some recent shots from seniors at Owego Free Academy, Maine Endwell and Tioga:Basketball, Senior, Athlete, The Camera's EyeSenior Athlete, Senior, Softball, Travel team, The Camera's EyeSoccer, Senior, Athlete, The Camera's EyeVolleyball, Senior, Athlete, The Camera's Eye

Game Face for Senior Photos with The Camera’s Eye!

Every year, I find myself so impressed by the commitment of senior athletes, but especially this year! Everyone who has a senior session with The Camera’s Eye not only plays their sport in high school, but is also active on a traveling team. Each has their own unique story and this Waverly High School senior is no exception!

The daughter of a Volleyball coach, Sydney tagged along to practices, tournaments and all kinds of volleyball events as a young child. There’s no question where she got her love of the sport and honed her skills.

Sydney, good luck as you pursue your goal of playing volleyball on a college team!

It’s not too late to schedule your senior photos with The Camera’s Eye! Contact us today 🙂

Sarah – 2018 Waverly High School Senior

 

Sarah is a rising senior at Waverly High School, and I am loving her senior session style! Sarah picked out her outfits by focusing on what represented her and what might be fun in her photos with The Camera’s Eye. As you can tell, she LOVES flowers.

She also loves St. Augustine, Florida and even hopes to go to college there! That’s where her T-shirt is from in the super casual and super gorgeous shot below:

Even though Sarah LOVES having her photo taken and feeling like a model, she was super nervous about her senior session…but she soon saw that I can make it FUN!

We tried lots of different scenes and managed to get something awesome out of every single one. I had a ton of fun with her session, and even added her to my Snapchat story that day 🙂

Sarah, best of luck in your last year at Waverly and thank you for doing your senior photos with The Camera’s Eye!

Laura – 2018 Maine Endwell Senior

I could not WAIT to show you these gorgeous fall shots from Laura’s senior session with The Camera’s Eye!Autumn, Fall, portraits, Senior, leaves, Fall Colors, Senioryear photos, The Camera's Eye 05

Laura deliberately waited until school started to schedule her senior session – her summer was crazy busy and the school schedule forced her into a routine where we could set a time and date 🙂

Laura did a FAB job choosing her senior session clothing and keeping it natural! She wanted to get all kinds of different colors in there, which you can see in her various outfits.

Likewise, she kept her hair natural and curly – making it easy for her senior photos to look just like HER! Laura likes her hair down and her mom really wanted some shots with it up…so why not do both?

The temperature may not have felt like it the last couple of days, but autumn is HERE in the Southern Tier! The daily shooting times are getting shorter and yearbook deadlines are just around the corner – so contact The Camera’s Eye to book today!

2018 Maine Endwell Senior – Hailey

Meet Hailey, a 2018 senior from Maine Endwell! We had an awesome senior session! Even better is the fact that I photographed her sister Erin two years ago, and I love working with the same family over the years!


Everyone has their own approach to planning out their senior photos, and Hailey didn’t spend a whole lot of time worrying about what to wear…which worked out great! She focused on choosing solids so they would stand out against whatever background I put her up against 🙂

And, for all my potential senior clients who are not thrilled abut having their photos taken…did you know that Hailey is part of your club? 😉 I promise I can make your senior photo session with The Camera’s Eye comfortable and maybe even FUN.

Slots for seniors with The Camera’s Eye are filling fast, so call or email today to book a session!

Bringing Some Flair to Your Senior Session

Still stressing about what to wear for your senior session with The Camera’s Eye? Solids with flair are always a safe choice! And what is flair?  In these images, you will see the client’s favorite color with a material pattern, or a piece of material missing, or a string or subtle eyelet pattern to the shirt…

All of this is fantastic flair – it adds a little visual interest, but doesn’t distract from your face! Contact me today to set up your senior photos with The Camera’s Eye – we can chat more about how to get the best senior session for you 🙂

 

 

Clothes, Patterns, and Your Senior Session

Students are always concerned about what to wear to their senior session, and they ALWAYS ask.. “should I avoid patterns?”  As a general rule, yes, but…like all rules…I believe in breaking them for the good of photography  ; )

Senior Fotos, The Camera's Eye 2.jpg

If you bring patterns, I’ll either simplify the background so the pattern is the standout or, I’ll play with the colors in the pattern.

Either way… you are more then welcome to bring patterns to your senior session with The Camera’s Eye!

The Camera's Eye, Senior Picture4Since the focus should be you, it’s best to choose calm patterns or small patterns that don’t distract from your face  🙂wp-1468533979361.jpeg

That way I can make sure you’re getting the attention you deserve during your senior photo session 🙂

As always, wear what you are comfortable with, and I’ll make sure the real YOU shines through 🙂

Makeup and Senior Photos!

Q: What suggestions do you have for makeup for senior photos? I normally wear light foundation, eyeliner and mascara with a lip color.

Senior Pictures, The Camera's Eye

A: Of course you want to look your best for your senior photos! So how can you use makeup to do that? I always tell my seniors – do exactly what you normally do, with just a HINT of extra blush for the camera.

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography2

This leaves you looking like YOU, and fabulously camera ready. Don’t forget some extra lip balm or blush to add that shimmer 🙂
