Ilene Squires Photography on Shooting School Campaigns

It is no surprise to anyone that I get many inquiries to shoot children for that is my photographic niche. However, in the last year I've received two special requests for media campaigns for schools here in NYC. Here is a mailer that went out for a campaign on shot earlier this year for my dear friends over at Harlem Link Charter School

Central Park Pet Portraits | Camille & DOG

We've been experiencing an unseasonably warm winter here in NYC and my playdate with Camille and her +1, DOG, was no exception. If you know me, you know I am 'not a pet person,' however, this shoot made me reconsider that special bond between animals and people. After 8 years together, Camille and DOG {finally!} get their photo taken.

Greenpoint Engagement | Angie & Mike

Angie & Mike, set to wed next year in Mike's native, Poughkeepsie, were the perfect fusion of brains & rock 'n' roll. Both enrolled in advanced degree programs with hopes to change the world, they are perfectly and infectiously in love. So maybe I am biased because Angie is a fellow Californian (909!). However, their choice of wedding venue and desire to shoot at a friend's Greenpoint residence only reinforced their unconventional way. 

Congratulations to you lovebirds Angie & Mike and thanks to the 'cousins' for the outtakes!

DUMBO Portraits | Kim

Some muses are lackluster and some, well, are off the charts. Kim is one of those one's I'm talking about. I LOVE when there is chemistry between the camera and the client and even if it takes some time during our session, it's always worth it. We spent the afternoon in DUMBO  sharing in great conversation, as I learned more about Kim's aspirations to become a sports journalist. She's headed out west in the fall and needed a little token of the Big Apple to keep her grounded. I'm sure she has plenty to choose from, just take a peak...

Grand Central Portraits | The Lims

The Lims, in for a just a couple of days from Singapore (yes, that's right, that Singapore, in Asia!!!) wanted a small souvenir from their weekend in the City. Now this is one jet setting couple as they were off to Canada and later San Francisco before making their way back home and do pop in and out of the City when they can. Sandra desired something iconic so naturally, I suggested a place I hadn't shot at and we agreed on Grand Central Terminal. All I can say is thank goodness we met on a weekend and not on a weeknight!
