Aubrey attends Athens High School, and when she’s not playing varsity softball and volleyball, she loves hanging out with her friends 🙂

Aubrey went shopping with her mother and grandmother for her outfits. How did she know she had found the right clothes for her senior session? A simultaneous WOW reaction from both ladies!

Now, I know it’s hard to believe just from looking at these photos – but Aubrey was NOT looking forward to having her photo taken!

As is usual with all of my senior sessions with The Camera’s Eye, we had a BLAST, and laughed so much it hurt 🙂

And here is a perfect example of why I shoot senior sessions first thing in the morning and during that gorgeous, gorgeous golden hour in the afternoon:

All natural light – I could shoot in this forever!

Aubrey, thank you SO much for an incredible senior session with The Camera’s Eye, and for trusting me to be your senior photographer 🙂 Best of luck in your final year at Athens High School!

 

Erin – 2017 Waverly High School Senior

We are booking senior sessions left and right at The Camera’s Eye, and having a blast! Meet Erin, a rising senior from Waverly High School in NY:

Erin loves music and nature, and she even plays the ukelele! We could have taken some great shots of her with her ukelele, since I love doing senior sessions with props. We did get some great pics of her in the beautiful outdoors.

Erin loves taking long, long walks in the woods –  doesn’t she look perfectly at home?

It can’t get any more nature-based than this – we were headed up to take some shots at a local farm, and a calf ran out in front of our cars and walked in front of us for a while. Maybe he was trying to teach us to slow down and enjoy the sights?? 🙂

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography

 Thanks to Erin for an awesome senior session with The Camera’s Eye! Best of luck in your final year at Waverly High School!

She chose her four favorite outfits to wear and we went to work! Madi brought along her friend Melinda  – and by referring Melinda to The Camera’s Eye for HER senior session, Madi is eligible to win an 11 x 14 canvas!

Melinda was an awesome lighting assistant, and we had so much fun.

Madi035-Madi021-The Camera's Eye

Though we did a few studio shots, Madi loves being outdoors and in the sunshine!

There was a lot of traveling around involved, and carrying of chairs…we got some gorgeous outdoor photos!

Madi027-Madi021-The Camera's Eye

Madi and Melinda were also gracious enough to give me some Snapchat 101 lessons 🙂

Family Portrait Sessions in August!

We’re right in the middle of our Christmas in August special at The Camera’s Eye….as well as our stamp card deal with other Owego businesses…so let’s learn a little bit more about what a family session is like!

Family Portraits, The Camera's Eye

I’ve worked with Brian and Lorrie’s family for years now…even before some of them were around 🙂 We’re talking engagement photos, newborn photos…and on it goes!

Portraits, The Camera's Eye1

It takes a little bit of wrangling and a lot of patience, but we’ve gotten some great shots of kiddos Chase and Bryce over the years!

Portraits, The Camera's Eye2Portraits, The Camera's Eye5Portraits, The Camera's Eye6Portraits, The Camera's Eye7Portraits, The Camera's Eye9

This family portrait session is the perfect example of lifestyle portraiture – capturing who my clients truly and naturally are. Playing with silly putty, throwing rocks, hiding around Christmas trees…you name it!

Portraits, The Camera's Eye12

During one shoot, there was a spider on a windowsill…which was the ONLY thing that could hold Bryce’s attention. And that’s one of our most successful portraits!

Portraits, The Camera's Eye8

The key to a successful family portrait session at The Camera’s Eye, especially with younger kids, is to GO with the FLOW! Let them be who they are and I will capture it for you – for your Christmas cards, for your walls, and anywhere else you want your memories to live 🙂

Arianna – 2017 Sayre Area High School Senior

Meet Arianna, a 2017 senior from Sayre Area High School:

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography

Arianna also has the distinction of being the winner of our prom promotion at the Winterball at Sayre Area High School – so her senior session with The Camera’s Eye was 100% free 🙂The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography2

Due to rain (remember what rain is??) we had to reschedule multiple times in June, and we finally got to shoot on July 12.

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography1

We started off in downtown Owego and then ventured out to a local farm. Ari is a nature lover so we included it all in her urban senior session…even horses!

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography7

She is a natural fashionista and had great accessories for every outfit! I love that they show who she is without overwhelming the photos 🙂

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography6

She chose the simple black dress for a classic look, and the coral for some vibrant color to pop in the great outdoors 🙂

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography5

Like me, she adores shoes, so I made sure that she had something comfortable for hoofing it in the great outdoors…and then she changed into her awesome footwear when we were ready to shoot.

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photography4

I love this senior session because the shots of Ari look free and easy, and that was exactly what it felt like – she was so lovely to work with 🙂 Best of luck from The Camera’s Eye with your last year at Sayre Area High School!

Christian – 2017 Owego Free Academy Senior

We can’t forget about all the senior guys I’ve been shooting at The Camera’s Eye! Meet Christian, a rising senior at OFA:

Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye5

Christian loves football and hunting, and loves the great outdoors – making an urban senior session the perfect choice for him!

Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye2 Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye1

We shot many of these at Christian’s aunt and uncle’s house, where he spends a lot of time. As you can see, it’s gorgeous…the perfect spot for running the tractor, fishing in the pond, and cutting wood. Oh, and playing with a big, goofy puppy!

Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye4
He’s not the first 2017 senior at The Camera’s Eye to do his shoot with a dog, and I hope he’s not the last 🙂 Christian is such a hard worker, so I loved seeing him have some FUN!
Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye7 Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye6
Oh, and he did NOT mind the chance to stick his feet in the water on this ridiculously hot day!
Senior Photography, The Cameras Eye3

Christian, thanks for a great summer senior session with The Camera’s Eye, and wishing all the best of luck in your upcoming final year of high school!

Makenna – 2017 Owego Free Academy Senior

These 2017 seniors from Owego Free Academy are rockin’ my senior season! Meet Makenna:

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photos3

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

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photos2The Camera's Eye, Senior Photos

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!

The Camera's Eye, Senior Photos4

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

Erin – 2017 Owego Free Academy Senior

I’m SO loving this recent senior session with The Camera’s Eye! Erin and I already knew each other since she came to help out with her friend Kelly’s senior session last season. She brought Kelly with her as an assistant to this shoot, and we had SO much fun.

For outfits, she focused on simple and casual – just working with her everyday style!

Even though she is smiley and so much fun, we made sure to make her sports shots intense and serious – because she is COMPETITIVE on the court!

I love it when we can work everything important about a senior into the senior sessionincluding pets! This is Marlie, a Christmas gift to Erin last year. This little bugger would NOT stop moving!

And even though Erin is so intense in these lacrosse shots – you would not believe how hard we all laughed. She had to face into the sun, which meant she could only keep her eyes open for a second at most, and there were tears streaming down her face 🙂

wp-1468533355856.jpeg

Don’t worry, Erin got us back later – or at least got Kelly back – when she accidentally soaked Kelly while we were getting shots of her throwing water in the air 🙂


A big thanks from The Camera’s Eye to Erin for such a fun senior session around town!
