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!

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 🙂


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!

Creating Your Graduation Announcements with The Camera’s Eye

It’s a crazy time of year for graduating high schoolers, which means we’re pretty busy ourselves at The Camera’s Eye!

TCE Grad Card Front

Graduation announcements and party invites are finding their way into everyone’s mailboxes. I love working with high school seniors and their parents to design cards and other products from our senior session photos, which are completely unique for each student.

Would you want to show up at prom wearing the same dress as someone else? I doubt it! At The Camera’s Eye, we offer completely customizable graduation announcements, ensuring that you’re getting something that’s yours and yours alone.

I usually touch base with the moms and dads about the nitty gritty details of the graduation or other event. But the seniors have the most important input – telling me their favorite colors and the type of style they are looking for. Flowery? Bold and outgoing? Softer and understated? Things like a printed font list can be helpful, but at this point in the process, having worked with them during their senior session, I usually have any given senior’s style down pat.

Better Late Than Never

I love owning up to being human and when anyone else does too.. I support that!  This lovely 2013 Senior was so caught up in her Senior Year, she completely lost track of time and just now ordered her Senior pictures.  Although I don’t recommend this… I whole-heartedly understand it!  This calls for the old saying, “Better late than never.”  She photographed way too nicely to never have a printed portrait.  Don’t you agree?  So don’t worry about the embarrassment.. Just do it.  Order late, admit that you can’t keep up in our minute to minute, instantaneous society and just do it.   You will find yourself in good company at this company!

Senior Announcement

Senior Graduation Announcements from The Camera’s Eye

Do you have a 2012 Senior?   Are you a 2012 Senior with the urge to stand out???

As the year zooms along and graduation slowly approaches, I am inundated with this question…”do you do graduation announcements?  Those fun ones.. not the ones you order from the school?”

Yes!  YES! YES!

Since most people only go through this once and don’t know all the in & outs… I think this is a great post topic for parents and Seniors alike.

We offer customized Senior Grad Announcements @ The Camera’s Eye  in all card sizes, layouts and papers.  THAT is the cool part and it’s also the overwhelming part.  YOU can choose as many Senior images as you would like to go on the card and can even use one side of a card as a framable gift to the recipient.  The wording is completely up to you and can include information about where you’re going to college or the details of your graduation party after the graduation ceremonies.  It’s literally limited ONLY by your imagination.

My favorite part… the paper.  I offer watercolor, linen, and pearl papers – they’re stunning and literally differentiate your announcement from one that is ordered on line.

I offer 8 sample templates to show you (several included here) to get your wheels turning.  Most seniors share their style, favorite color and 3 to 4 of their all time fav images and turn the creativity part over to me.  =)

I’d like to hear from you… what question didn’t I address about Senior Graduation Announcements?  What’s important to you?Senior Grad Card
