Lately we’ve done a LOT of posts about lovely 2015 senior ladies, but let’s not forget about the senior guys that we shoot at The Camera’s Eye! David is a senior at Owego Free Academy, and we had a great shoot in a variety of outdoor locations, including the soccer field.
School is back in session, and we’re still churning out senior photos at The Camera’s Eye! My clients come from many different local schools, and recently got the chance to meet Emma, another OFA senior from Owego!
As you can see below, Emma is a tennis player 🙂 She currently plays singles, but she started in doubles with her friend Hailey – who was also one of our first senior sessions of the year!
I love Emma’s personality! She’s a sweetheart, and very determined. She literally stared into my reflector until she was in tears so that we could get the sports shots. I definitely admire that!
In addition, she has a totally mellow style. My clients at The Camera’s Eye know how much I LOVE shoes, and I can tell you that gray converse sneakers are her go-to!
Working with seniors at The Camera’s Eye, I learn all sorts of important tidbits about my clients. For starters, Coco’s name is NOT actually Coco. She couldn’t help but pick the name up as a kid when her mother’s European friend would refer to her as “Miss Coco Chanel” in a thick and glamorous accent. And who *wouldn’t* jump on the chance for that nickname?
Shooting with Coco was a blast – she is all energy and has a really playful personality. I love it because she’s JUST like me – a big kid! Before Coco’s senior session, we collaborated over Pinterest, and she shared her ideas for these unique tennis shots:
Coco is obviously very sporty, but she also has a soft and gentle look:
Love it when we can hit all sorts of styles in one senior session 🙂 Best of luck to Miss Coco Chanel in her final year at OFA!
At The Camera’s Eye, we love turning out a successful senior portrait session! When everything’s clicking in a senior session, you just feel it. Nothing beats having both a beautiful environment and a senior with a great personality and openness.
Of course, as with all things in professional photography, there’s not much you can do when the outside elements are determined to make their mark. Nicole, a 2015 senior from Owego Free Academy, had to reschedule her session TWICE!
The first time, we got rained out – and we’re pretty familiar with rain in the Southern Tier. The second time, Nicole’s flip flop broke! However, fate was conspiring to make us schedule this third session, where everything came together beautifully. Third time’s the charm, right?
Nicole is yet another one of my seniors who was just so much fun to shoot. She is quiet and composed, and so warm at the same time, which definitely comes across in her senior session photos. It helps that she was ready to roll with anything, and able to brush off both the weather and a wardrobe malfunction 🙂
We may be in the last month of summer, but it’s not quite over yet – The Camera’s Eye has many more upcoming senior sessions to shoot before the school year gets into full swing!
Nadia loves science and wants to attend college – hopefully in the New York City area – to become a doctor. She’s already more than familiar with NYC, since she goes there once a month to visit her sister. They’re four years apart in age, but many people think they’re twins!
Nadia is no stranger to travel, as she has been to South Africa – her parents’ home country. She loves playing basketball, though she swears she’s not athletic. Based on these photos, I think we can safely call her a fashionista 🙂 She shared great pictures of her outfits before coming to see me, and she still couldn’t make up her mind which ones to wear!
Even though there were some tough fashion decisions to make, she always knew that she wanted to wear this authentic Indian dress. She’s definitely a girl after my own heart when it comes to a love of shoes – the icing on the cake, besides that gorgeous smile, is the matching 5-inch heels!
The summer’s halfway through, and at The Camera’s Eye we are continuing to meet and shoot our 2015 seniors! One student I’ve had the pleasure to meet is Hailey, a 2015 senior from Owego Free Academy. She plays tennis, loves to read and, like me, loves to Pinterest!
Love her outfit choices – classic, classy, and stylish all at once. That, combined with the fact that she’s sweet and funny, made her senior session a lot of fun!
Meet Parrish Bridges, a 2015 senior from Owego Free Academy! I often say I spend a lot of my time running around, but this guy actually spends his time running. He LOVES to run, and I’d go as far to say as he LIVES to run. He’s dedicated, and definitely going places!
At The Camera’s Eye, it’s always a bittersweet to say goodbye to a class of seniors after we’ve gotten to know them and worked so closely on their photos and graduation announcements.
The up side is that now we have so much to look forward to with our 2015 senior photos!
