Announcing the annual senior sale for the class of 2020!  Now, in the past, this sale was only 2 days long.  This year, I’m changing things up a little, and making things a little less stressful.  This year, the senior sale is going to run from May 15 – May 31.  This is the ONE sale that I run all year, so you don’t want to miss out!  This year, the earlier in the summer that you have your shoot, the more you will save! Don’t worry, all of my summer shoots are held early morning, so it won’t be too hot or sweaty for our shoot ;). In addition to the reduced session fee, anyone booking during the sale will also receive 2 complimentary gift prints with order (a gift print is your choice of an 8×10 or smaller – an $80 value!).

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in June, and the session fee is only $100 ($150 for deluxe).  In addition, you will receive 5 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in July, and the session fee is only $125 ($175 for deluxe), you will receive 4 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in August, and the session fee is only $150 ($200 for deluxe), you will receive 3 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in September, and the session fee is only $175 ($225 for deluxe).  you will receive 2 complimentary social media images with your order.

The details – this sale is for senior sessions only.  If you call and book your senior photo session during the sale, you will receive a discounted session fee + 2 free gift prints with your order.  Session fees must be paid at time of booking, and are non-refundable (in case of weather issues, I will reschedule your date with no additional session fee). All sessions are done on location (of your choice).  Regular senior session is one location, Deluxe senior session is two locations (in the same day).  I only take one senior client per day, so when that date is filled, it is not available for another client.  So, if you know you want JPSearcy to photograph you for your senior photos, you will want to call and pick your date early!  Simple as that!

As always. Session fees are for the session time and editing only, and do not include any prints or digital files.  Print packages are ordered at our viewing/ordering appointment approximately 3 weeks after our shoot.  I have 6 different flexible packages ranging from $240-$1890.  Minimum order for regular sessions is $240, for deluxe (2 location) sessions is $500.

*Regular pricing session fee is $200 for a regular senior session, $300 for a deluxe senior session.

Still have questions? Don’t hesitate to reach out to me and ask! Otherwise, I look forward to booking your summer session very soon.  We will have fun at our shoot AND get beautiful photos to mark this important milestone in your life!

Although I don’t typically photograph weddings, I was so touched that one of my former seniors wanted me to shoot hers!  I think it was a perfect wedding.  So beautiful and so sweet!  This adorable couple was so happy and so in love, it was amazing to play a small role in their special day. I came home and went right to work so I could have some sneak peeks for them before they left on their honeymoon.  Ahhh, young love!

The next senior up on the blog, is my last official 2019 high school senior!  And what a great way to wrap up this year.  Hannah is not only beautiful, but so sweet and was a pleasure to photograph.  I had a great time with her and her mom hitting all of the hot spots around Rollins campus.  I just love shooting there!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

 

THANK YOU class of 2019!  I loved having a small part in your senior year.  Thank you for trusting me with your senior photos!  Now, onto the class of 2020!  I’ll be releasing the next class info within the next week or two, so stay tuned!!

Next 2019 senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Fariha!  We had so much fun exploring and photographing around Rollins.  She is so sweet, and so pretty (and that hair!!!), of course we got lots of beautiful senior photos for her!  Rollins is one of my most favorite places to shoot.  There are great backgrounds for everyone there!  So, Fariha made a great choice in her location.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

I’m not done with the class of 2019 yet!  This may be the latest that I have ever photographed seniors, AND this one isn’t my last!  I’m loving these last minute seniors!  Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Maya!  I had such a great time meeting and photographing Maya out at the beach.  She is such a sweetheart, and so much fun to photograph.  Not to mention, we had a beautiful sunrise morning to work with.  It isn’t fun waking up that early, BUT absolutely no one is ever sorry they did.  And besides, you can always go home and take a nap ;).

Here are a few sneak peeks from our sunrise beach shoot:

The next senior up on the blog comes all the way from California!  She was going to be in town for a volleyball tournament, so she and her mom wanted to do her senior photos down here!  I absolutely love it when people come to me and make their shoot part of their trip.  But what made this one even more special, was her mom is a photographer herself!  Shockingly enough, photographer’s kids (no matter what age) don’t always enjoy photo shoots ;). Probably because they have had a camera in their faces since they were babies!  But her mom wanted her to have a great senior photo experience, so she went looking for a Florida photographer.  I was truly honored that she chose me!

We had a fantastic time on our shoot (despite a major case of jet lag).  They wanted to shoot downtown Orlando, so we were there bright and early.  I don’t think any of us were thinking of the time difference when we set the date for the shoot.  When I met them at 8am, it was more like 5am for them.  And that was just our meeting time.  She had a make up artist at the hotel beforehand, so she was exhausted!  You wouldn’t be able to tell from looking at her photos.  She looked so beautiful!  And boy, could she pull off the serious face!

This was a shoot for one of my models, and it was so much fun!  For her bonus mini shoot, she wanted something a little different.  So, we tried a night shoot!  I’ve done night shoots before, and they are usually downtown (because of all the lights on the skyline), but the stars were just not aligning for us to shoot downtown.  So instead, we went to one of my more popular locations, Park Ave, but at night!  This was a lot different for me, since I am usually there bright and early, with no one around.  For this shoot, it was on a Friday evening, so of course, there were tons of people around.  Not the most convenient to shoot, but I think we did pretty well!  And even though this dancer told me that she wasn’t going to do any dance photos this shoot, we ended up doing a couple ;).  I can’t help it! I love to shoot dancers!  And she was so awesome, she was happy to oblige.

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from our fun night shoot.  I usually prefer color, but for the dance ones, I am more drawn to it in black and white!  I will leave it up to her to see which way she prefers it:

This is a new one for me!  Many seniors want to incorporate their sport into their sessions.  No problem at all!  But this one was a bit different.  She was playing in the Arnold Palmer Pro Am tournament at Bay Hill!  It is a once in a life time opportunity, so I was very honored that they wanted me to be there to document this amazing event.  This is something out of my norm, so that made it even more fun!  I couldn’t do any posing 😉  And while I was able to walk along side of the course, I still had to keep a little bit of a distance so my shutter clicks wouldn’t be a distraction. While I don’t know much about golf, it was so much fun to watch her play.  She is really good!  (In my totally unbiased opinion, she was the best one out there 😉 ).

Here are a few photos from our day:

These beautiful girls have been dominating my blog recently!  They have had several shoots during their senior year, but this one *may* have been their favorite.  SOFTBALL!!  They both play ball for Oviedo, and will continue in college, so of course, we are going to want to do some sports photos for them!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks for each of them:

I’m not quite done with the class of 2019!  Yes, most of the seniors have had them done, but not everyone has!  If you haven’t yet gotten photos that you love, you still have time to give me a call and schedule a shoot.  We are getting close to being out of time, but we aren’t there yet 😉

I had the pleasure of meeting a super sweet girl for her senior photos this weekend.  Samantha wanted to have her shoot out at Rollins (and for good reason! It is beautiful there!).  We all had a great time, just hanging out, and getting some beautiful natural photos of  this beauty.  These are the kind of shoots that I really enjoy.
