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!

Thanks to Mallory for such a fun senior session with The Camera’s Eye, and best of luck to her in her last year at Waverly!

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.

She looks incredible either way, and her eyes really stand out to me in black and white! Love meeting all you seniors who are willing to try new things in your photos 🙂

Her mom and her sister came along to help out, which made it an extra fun shoot!

Makenna knew she wanted a more rustic look to her senior photos, so we chose the landscape around  Owego to match. That’s also how she picked out her two shirts – perfect for the session!

I LOVE doing sports shots with senior sessions. We managed to get softball done, and still have to do some volleyball pics!

Owego Free Academy Prom 2016

I am so thrilled to have been the official photographer for the Owego Free Academy prom this year! It took place on Saturday May 21st at Pumpelly House in Owego, so The Camera’s Eye had options for beautiful shots both inside and outside! Read to the end to find out how you can see all OFA prom photos by The Camera’s Eye – but first, a little bit about the planning and set up!

image

The theme was Enchanted Forest, which came off beautifully (even though it was raining all day!) Local fave Tioga Gardens provided the wave petunias and ferns. My neighbor Fuddy Duddy’s provided the lighted trees, which they actually sell in the store, believe it or not!

image

OFA prom is no small endeavor….it’s an all-day event! Kids could stop at a number of locations for photos, including the grounds of the Pumpelly House.

image

I was hired by the 2016 OFA class advisor to shoot outside from 3 to 6, and then indoors for the remainder of the evening. One of the best parts to see was a teacher announcing students at the large red front doors, sharing special recollections about each student. After going through our indoor setup, the couples traipsed through the beautiful gardens out back.

image

After taking photos, the kids took limos and party buses to restaurants, going as far away as the Bartow House in Nichols, the Boat House in Ithaca and the Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen.

image

The prom ends at 2 in the morning, after which the kids head over to the high school for an all night post-prom party with an awesome prizes and entertainment. This party is the result of a ton of work on the part of OFA parents, and it shows! Kids received gift certificates, played everything from glow-in-the-dark golf to casino games, and entered their prize tickets to win dash cams, iPads, GPS units, and more! Then of course there was a full breakfast at 5 am.

Can’t forget a photo of myself and my awesome junior helper, who wrangled umbrellas and helped everything run smoothly!

A big thank you to the OFA senior class for letting me capture your prom night!

A Basket of Kittens!

The majority of my clients at The Camera’s Eye are human…but I can never resist the chance to take photos of ADORABLE animals!

These three kittens, about 3-4 weeks old, were found by my good friend Taunya. Her kids are helping take excellent care of them while they find forever homes!

I adore them all! The little black one is the runt, and I even helped hand-feed him. Hard not to fall in love!11330046_10153373734093428_1880783671656353946_n 11219598_10153373734618428_8635245555882139558_n

We’ve shared these photos on The Camera’s Eye Facebook page, and it looks like all kitties may have been snatched up. Still, it never hurts to spend part of your day looking at photographs of kittens on the Internet, right? 🙂
