Photographing Seniors in the Thousand Islands

Posted on 07/11/2012

Photographing seniors on location has been one of our exciting new endeavors this year.  For those seniors who come in looking for a unique experience and one-of-a kind photos, we take them to one of a number of different spots where their portrait can be inspired by the venue. 

Ben Reed, a senior at Lisbon Central School, had his shoot in Alexandria Bay a few weeks ago where we captured some really great shots with the St. Lawrence River in the background.  We used Casino Island for many of the photos and had some fun admiring all of the tourists that were in town for the Poker Run.  Ben has always loved the water so his portraits really suited his personality.

Tori Peabody, also a senior from Ogdensburg, is part of our ambassador/model program this year which serves to get the word out about our studio. She had some of her portraits taken in Alexandria Bay, and many of them had a real edgy feel. Below, this door with vines makes the perfect frame for a gorgeous model.


Mikela Bailey is a student at Lakewood Ranch High School in Florida.  Her grandparents own a cabin in Goose Bay where she visits in the Summer.
Mikela had this to say about her shoot, “Penny Heath was awesome! She paid attention to every detail, and I’m super excited to see how the photos turned out. Shooting at Boldt’s Castle was perfect- it has nature mixed with the atmosphere of a princess’s mansion. I chose to shoot there because I’ve been going there for as long as I can remember with my grandpa, who is my favorite person in the world, so it became my favorite place. I’m undecided about where I want to go after high school.It depends on the scholarships I’m offered, but I’ll be definitely be going to college for Pre-Med.Then I want to go to medical school at the University of Rochester.”

We love the results of these shoots and we are looking forward to photographing Alexandria Central senior Lauren Spooner at her Wellesley Island home in a few weeks.  We will let you know how the session turns out!
