Chats with Jack

I met Jack, owner Logan Keeney’s Uncle this Spring at Farmer Brown’s Marketplace in Apalachin, NY while photographing & promoting Mother’s Day hanging baskets. Obviously, gardening runs in the genes with the Keeney Klan.  Jack is not only a #garden #enthusiast, he’s ray of brilliance with knowledge of just about any plant on premises.  I was quickly fascinated by him…The Camera's Eye, FBM, OWEGO, Apalachin, NY, Monarch Watch 1

Knowing Jack was a sap for info, while marketing #Perennials at FBM, I brought him a #milkweed stem hosting a tiny Monarch #caterpillar.  I participate in Kentucky University’s Monarch Watch program,  and thought he would “dig it” – all pun intended!The Camera's Eye, FBM, OWEGO, Apalachin, NY, Monarch Watch 2

Approaching him with a smile, I said, “I have a gift for you, but I warn you, it can change your Life.”  Well… it not only changed his, it changed all of ours!  Within an hour, Jack built FBM a Monarch enclosure, hunted for baby caterpillars on the surrounding Milkweed and propagated the Milkweed plants FBM already had for sale.  The Camera's Eye, FBM, OWEGO, Apalachin, NY, Monarch Watch 3

With Jack on staff, customers shopping at FBM are introduced to the #Monarchs- in all stages of their Life cycle and handed a wealth of #butterfly knowledge.The Camera's Eye, FBM, OWEGO, Apalachin, NY, Monarch Watch 4

It occurred to Logan, Jack was a wealth of knowledge that FBM should be sharing,  hence, “Chats with Jack” was born!  Wednesday through Saturday, 10 to 5pm,  Jack will be open to any questions about planting, propagating, transplanting, plant identification, plant disease and his new found love, Monarch Rearing.  The Camera's Eye, FBM, OWEGO, Apalachin, NY, Monarch Watch 6

These are just a few topics we mustered up.  Jack will take just about any gardening question you throw at him.  Can’t make it in to see Jack, visit FBM’s website  & click “Chats with Jack” to leave your question.The Camera's Eye, FBM, OWEGO, Apalachin, NY, Monarch Watch 5

No questions to ask???… you may simply want to visit Jack at Farmer Brown’s for a tour of the Monarch enclosure and to see what these inquisitive little creatures have to teach us!  Kids will love it – a definite day adventure before school starts!

Unleash your Style

The Camera's Eye, Portraits, Seniors, Photogrpaher, Owego, NYAnna, a Maine Endwell student approached her High School Senior photos exactly as we all should- with a tad bit of nervousness and a ton of style!  She kept her outfits simple, yet wore her favorite hat adding a touch of flare.

2020 Senior Year Excitement!

 

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!

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!

Having a Comfortable Senior Session with The Camera’s Eye

No matter where we are or what you wear, I want you to be comfortable during your senior photos with The Camera’s Eye. That’s why it’s important for YOU to bring a little bit of home with you! Think siblings…best friends…pets! And then cue the gorgeous natural smiles:

Keep in mind – we don’t want your pet (or other ‘significant other’) to dominate your session with The Camera’s Eye. Think about only having your pet for part of the session and having someone there to take him or her home while we focus on you!

Same goes for human companions- it’s super distracting for both of us if your sister or bestie is taking cell phone pictures while we’re trying to knock out YOUR professional session. It also slows us down – we move around a LOT and we need to optimize your time behind the camera, and make it all about you! I do love meeting the people in your life, and I LOVE seeing them add just that right amount of bubble and shine to your portraits!

School is starting up, but it’s not too late to schedule a senior session with me – contact me today!

Mallory – 2018 Waverly High School Senior

Check out Mallory, a 2018 Waverly High School senior! I’ve worked with Mallory’s family for years but haven’t seen them in a while, and it was so nice to catch up and swap stories!

Mallory didn’t come to me with anything super specific in mind for her senior shoot, which is fine! She loves having her photo taken, and I think it shows 🙂

She also shows some awesome senior photo style – keeping it SIMPLE. For starters, her favorite and most comfortable jeans!

She stuck with her favorite colors for tops, as well as her absolute favorite green dress. Noticing a theme?

The flowered dress is SO fun and flowy, which is great for all the different poses we tried out!

Julie – 2017 Athens High School Senior

Just have to share this fave shot from a recent senior session with The Camera’s Eye! This is Julie, a rising senior from Athens, PA, and a TOTAL sweetheart! She normally wears glasses, and we did some photos with glasses and some without.
