class of 2011 | marcellus high school | marcellus senior photography

Being that the Senior Ball for Marcellus High School is this upcoming Saturday, I thought it would be appropriate to post a few photos from my Marcellus seniors.  Matt's session was filled with talk of films and music as we walked around the Village and then Benson Road.  Miss Corey's session was all over God's creation on theeee hottest day of the summer last year, but some how we survived!  We started in the Village of  Skaneateles where Mid Lakes Navigation kindly let us aboard the Judge Ben Wiles for some shots.  Then it was off to Anyela's Vineyards and Benson Road.

Have fun Saturday night at your Senior Ball, and good luck at Graduation!  Thank you both for letting me be a small part of your senior year!

senior book one!

Being that it is winter and what I consider my quiet time, I send the cameras off to be cleaned and updated and I can have a different fun by designing wedding albums and now the Senior Album.

This is a great way to include all your favorite photos from your session in one place.  You can use the album just as is, or you can have it designed to leave open space so that your friends and family can sign the book if you are having a graduation party!  It's a great addition to your Yearbook, but this book is all about you!

Here's a peek at one.

Ms. Samantha, Cujo and a cow

Yesterday was my first high school senior session for the Class of 2010 and it was a full of little surprises.  We first started at the studio for the traditional portrait and then packed up the gear, clothes and a chair and went scouting for cool places to takes some shots.  We started in the village, then off to Clift Park where a crew member of The Judge Ben Wiles kindly let us aboard so we could grab some shots on the boat.  From there we went to the Sherwood Inn for a few there and then off we went on our adventure in the countryside. While driving around a few weeks ago I had found this great truck that I knew would be a cool backdrop, so off we went in search of the Chevy.  We were doing well with the Chevy shots, having a great time, thinking of neat ways to photograph Samantha until we were up on the road for some shots there when all of the sudden a big black drooling Cujo looking dog came up from where the truck was....he was not a happy camper!  Needless to say, I highly doubt I will be going back there unless I have a huge steak for him.  Then again, he really looked like he would have rather captured his meal!  We got into the car and left.  While driving back home we saw some great hay wagons on the side of the road so we stopped and grabbed a few shots there as well.  Not soon after we got there we had created a fuss with the cows in the field next to the wagons, we now had an audience.  One actually snorted at us!  I think they thought Samantha would look better with a pair of the earrings they were all wearing.

Oh well, here's a few from yesterdays session.  A great start for 2010!

Thank you Samantha!

New Designs for High School Seniors!

Thought I would share some of the layouts I have sent some of my clients that I really like, including my own daughter.  Graduation is approaching fast and I have been busy with my seniors creating unique and beautiful invitations to their graduation and parties.  One idea that is catching on is the bookmark.  This is a great way to give all your friends and family your information as to where you are going in the Fall. I just love doing these and am always excited when they come in and I get to see them as the final product.  Thank you again to all my great seniors from the Class of 2009.  I had a ball with each and everyone of you!  Good luck and see you all at the Commencement!!!

2009 Seniors - It's that time of year!

I just got back from visiting the school my daughter will be attending in the Fall and I could have sworn she was born just the other day.  Where does the time go?  It was fun watching her and her brother walk the campus chatting.  I wonder what they were thinking.  Of course, they didn't share.  They have their own little world.   Anyway, being back in the studio this morning I decided to post some of the announcements and collages I offer for my seniors.  I really have a blast when I am photographing them.  Each one with their own personality and vibe.  Each shoot is so different and I love when the parents come and pick up the proofbooks.  They, as I did, clutch them like treasure.  The look on their faces as they quickly flip through the book in the studio before bringing it home is priceless.  It makes my day. senior1senior2senior3
