Yesterday I took Boy #2 on a tour of Princeton University. While we were there, I grabbed a few photos of the ivy-covered #doors around campus for an upcoming photo class assignment. These are my three favorites. Which one do you like best? #collegetour #princeton #ivyleague #architecture #photostudent #classwork
Sarah is such a natural in front of the camera that I kept on shooting and shooting and shooting…let’s just say I took a lot of pictures that day. 🙂 Thank you, Sarah, for being such a great model and good sport and for indulging me in all of the stuff I wanted to try out, like my new antique desk. And thank you to my trusty assistant Griffin for lugging that heavy desk all over Thornden Park!
Griffin is dressing up as a Plague Doctor for #Halloween this year. Yes, my son is a bit of a history nerd. Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!
Now that his mom has seen the proofs, I can finally release these highlights from Ean’s session at Franklin Square and Armory Square. It was a hot, sweltering early autumn day, but Ean still brought it for this session! Good luck with the rest of your senior year, Ean! And swim fast! #seniorportraits #syracusephotographer #downtownsyracuse
Part two of our summer European adventures. After a few days in London, we hopped on a Eurostar train and spent a couple of days in Paris. Here are some highlights... #travel #worldtravels #europeanvacation #Paris
Proud mom moment! Last night I got to do one of my favorite things - watch my kid on stage! Quirk's Players at G. Ray Bodley High School is currently performing one of my favorite shows, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and Griffin is in the ensemble as Shermy. I went to opening night last night, and will be at the remaining shows tonight and tomorrow night at 7:30. If you're in the area, I highly recommend treating yourself to a fun night of high school #theatre. And be sure to find me and say hello! Apologies for the lower-resolution pictures, I didn't have my big-girl camera with me and had to make do with my cell phone. :)
One thing you may not know about me is that, in addition to this portrait photography business and my real job as a tutor, I am a full-time college #student at OCC. Yes, I am a little bit crazy and no, I don't sleep a lot. I am a photography major, which some people find amusing considering how long I've been a professional photographer. But my photo classes have helped me to refine my technique and have really made me explore who I am and who I want to be as an artist. It's been quite an exciting time for me. I thought I would share with you some of the work I've been doing in my photo classes. I am taking both a color photo class and a black & white class. Today's post is from the first assignment in my color class. We had to create images that represented the theme of Autumn Harvest. Of course this immediately made me think of pumpkins and sunflowers and candy corn, my favorite #autumn things.
I love it when I get to photograph multiple seniors from the same family. It makes me smile to know that they were so happy with the pictures I took of their first graduating senior, they called me again for the second one! This is Alex, and I had a great time kicking around Baldwinsville and then Onondaga Park with him (and his mom) for his senior pics. Good luck to you in the rest of your senior year, Alex!
My final outdoor senior session of the season, on one of the last nice days of the season. I had a great time with Camille at Mexico Point the other day. I haven't been there in a few years and it was nice to shoot there again. And I was so impressed with Camille, who did a great job despite having to hobble around on crutches with a broken foot! This shot of Camille and her violin is one of my faves so far. I love it when seniors bring props to their sessions!
I can't decide which pic of Sarah I like more. What say you, IGers?
