This was my second time photographing this sweet little angel. I tell you, she is as happy and pleasant as they come! Mom wanted lots of “baby parts” shots for a collage, but afterwords, we had some fun photographing her in different chairs in the house! This one was one of my favorites.

Hope you enjoyed your little sneak peek! I should have the rest of your proofs to you by the end of the weekend.

This little sweetheart was a welcome little fireball on a cool afternoon. She was so excited to be there, and running around, she didn’t want to sit still for even a minute. Which was FINE by me! More playtime for me too., The only time I could get her to stand still for a minute was to put her in a tree!

Here is your sneak peek!

What we do for our mothers! My mom has been wanting new updated photos of her three girls. Well, now is the perfect time, because my middle sister is in town for a conference. We went to one of my favorite locations to shoot at, and tried to set things up so my mom (or dad in some of them) could snap the shutter for me. Let me tell you, it is TOUGH trying to take a photo while you are IN it! Just a few quick ones from our session.

And I managed to get mom to dress in black/denim and jump in a couple with us.

I had a session with a wonderful couple and their friends. A bunch of mini-sessions, really. They were having a post-Christmas, pre-new year party with their friends, and thought it would be nice to have a photographer there for little sessions for everyone. They were so sweet, and can really throw a party! Of course, I took TONS of photos, and it is taking much longer than usual to get them all proofed. But I wanted to give a sneak peek of the couple! I promise, I will have all of them to you as soon as possible!

Well, it wasn’t bad. The boys just wanted me to take pictures of their Bionicles for them. So, the deal was I had to take photos of these strange looking little boogers:

To get a photo of my little boogers like this:

Now, enough playing with my new toy. I have to get back to proofing! LOL!

It is finally here! I have been saving up for a new camera. The other one has served me well, but it was time to upgrade. I was seriously stalking the UPS man waiting for it. It was torture!

Isn’t it gorgeous?! LOL!
Well, I asked the boys to let me break it in on them. I promised a movie afterwards, so they were on board. I know there will be a little curve while I break it in, so I wanted to work on it before I use it on a “real” session.

You know, I have more trouble photographing MY boys than any other kids or babies. It is so fustrating! Photographerkid syndrome, I think. But, at the very end, they loosened up for me, and I got a few shots. Here are a few, straight from the camera. No editing, just sizing/sharpen for web.

I still have more learning/practicing to do on it. Off to think of tomorrow’s bribe! LOL!

This session was a little different for me. I am used to chasing kids around with my camera, but for this session, it was grown-up kids! I was asked to photograph adult siblings with their mom. I gotta say, it WAS nice having stationary subjects for once! I did have some fun with this session, and I *think* they did too. But, I did find out that siblings act the same way when they are kids AND grown-ups! LOL!

Here is a sneak peek for you!

This post is directed to my past clients. I wanted to thank you all for helping me get my business off of the ground. As you may, or may not have noticed, the “portfolio building” special sessions have long gone, and the pricing on my site was updated to show that probably a month and a half ago.

As a THANK YOU to you, I would like to offer you my first special of the new year! If you book a new session anytime in January, February, or March, your sitting fee will be the same old portfolio building rate. So, instead of the new $100 (local) sitting fee, you will be able to book at the $50 sitting fee! E-mail me ASAP to reserve your date, and don’t forget to mention that you want this NEW YEAR SPECIAL!

I have been so bad. My sister had her “directorial debut”, and asked me to come over and photograph her “cinematic genius”. She really looked good, and professional. Hard to believe it was her first short! I was in the midst of my very busy holiday season, so her proofs got put on the back burner. I remembered about them today, and finished them up. She did have to wait, what, 2 months for them? So, if you are reading this ‘lil sis, I have them all ready for you now!

One of the things that I have been wanting to do for my business, is get a blog going! No better time than a new year, right? I plan on using this blog as a newsletter, of sorts for my photography business. I will be posting sneek peeks from recent sessions, announcing specials, possibly contests? I am not totally sure yet, so make sure you keep checking back in to see what I am up to!

I should probably introduce myself first. Those who would be reading this are probably past clients, current clients, and hopefully future clients. As well as friends and family wanting to keep up with what I am doing. So, for those who don’t yet know me yet, my name is Jeannette Searcy. I am a photographer in the Orlando area. I am a wife to a wonderful fireman, and a mom to two beautiful boys. I graduated from FSU (go Noles) with a degree in child development. I always knew that I wanted to work with children, I just didn’t know how!

I am often asked the question, “how long have you been doing this (photography)?” Seems like such an easy question, but it really doesn’t have an easy answer. I have been taking photographs since I was a kid. I was the high school yearbook photographer in school (MANY years ago!). And after I had my first baby, my interest became much greater. I took some photography courses, and got a film SLR (single lens reflex) camera. I have since moved onto digital SLR cameras. And just a year or so ago, I decided to build up my portfolio. My boys were so happy that I was taking photos of other kids, so they could get a break from me! And then, a few months ago, I decided to make the leap into a photography business. (See, I told you it wasn’t a quick answer!).

I have been so blessed to have such wonderful first clients with such gorgeous children! And I feel that I am really doing what I was MEANT to do now. I have so much fun photographing kids. And I really love being able to give parent’s photographs of their children, just the way they REALLY are. It almost feels like it isn’t work at all! THIS is what I have been looking for!

I invite you to stay up to date with my blog. Check back often, because I have some specials in mind! Not to mention, if you have a session coming up, you will get a sneek peek of a photo or two BEFORE your proofs are actually ready for you!

And before I sign off, I thought I would share a favorite picture of me and my boys. This was taken last mother’s day by my mom. As you can imagine, I don’t get on the other side of the camera all that often!
