I was beginning to think this session would  never happen!  We had to reschedule several times.  BUT, sometimes things happen for a reason!  This reason, was we were holding out for the perfect day (previous session days wouldn’t have been as pretty as this one)!  Now, we were out of school, and the weather was cool and beautiful.  (If you ask Heidi, she may say it was a little *too* cool outside.  But she did warm up, and when I wasn’t having her barefoot on the cold ground, or laying on cold benches or stones, it was perfect!  Hahaha!

I had a great time, and she was a complete sweetheart.  I found it funny that she didn’t think she could do a good “serious” face, because I thought (and so did her mom!) that it was beautiful!  So, for her sneaks, one serious, one smiley, and one somewhere in the middle!

Here are a few from her session:

If you are a 2012 senior, NOW is a fantastic time to book your session!  Maybe you weren’t happy with the ones you took for the yearbook, or you just wanted to wait a little longer into your senior year.  Whatever the reason, don’t wait any longer!  Call/message/email me and we can talk about  YOUR session to get the photos that you love!

My sweet little niece was in town for Christmas!  And she is COMPLETELY in love with everything princess.  And me, being a girly-girl mom who has boys and no girls, I take full advantage of the princess girly time whenever I can get it!  We have been building up her little princess wardrobe.  It is pretty amazing that she wears anything else, to be honest!  She loves her dresses.  So, naturally, a princess photo shoot was in order.

She currently has – Ariel (Little Mermaid), Rapunzel (Tangled), Tiana (Princess and the Frog), Cinderella, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Snow White, and Tinkerbell (but I was told that Tinkerbell is a fairy, not a princess, so we didn’t get any photos in that one!).  Her birthday is next month, so I have a feeling we will be adding to her dress collection ;). Here is my little princess:

And this one is my favorite!  To me, it looks like she is saying, “I WISH I WAS A PRINCESS!”

A month or so back, I took a few of my JPSearcy senior model/representatives out for a little fun night shoot.  We had such a great time!  But the second group of my models has been harder to schedule.  We have had rain outs, last minute out of town trips, and a couple other reschedules.  But we WERE going to get it done!  We had the perfect night, not to hot, not to cool, all three of them were available, and then OOPS!  I made a huge mistake!  I forgot my battery pack at home.  I have never made such a huge mistake before!  See, no power, means no lights, and no lights at night, means no session!  Thankfully, my very sweet and loving husband (who accompanies us on all night shoots downtown), offered to run back home and pick it up.  So, me and the girls and their moms all hung out and got something to drink and talked until dear husband came back.  Unfortunately, we did lose one girl to the shoot, because of a previous commitment, so you will be seeing “night shoot part 3” in another week or two ;).

Here are a few sneaks from their shoot:

Lainey (Oviedo High)

(And this was just too funny!  As we are standing on the side ready to go to Amway, we see a ad for her father’s company!  So, yes, we needed to get a picture in front of the Harris sign!)

Regan (Winter Springs High)

As crazy as it sounds, I will be starting to look for my 2013 JPSearcy senior model/representatives next month!  If you want to be kept in the loop on the details for that, please “like” me at http://www.facebook.com/jpsearcy, because I will post the details there first!

But 2012 seniors, never fear, I am not closing up shop on you yet!  This time of year is a fantastic time to have your senior photos taken.  The weather is much more pleasant, and you do not have to do early morning shoots like in the summer.  Your senior year is HALF over already (can you believe it?!), and the second half is going to fly by!  Don’t settle for just your “yearbook photos”, come have a session where YOU want to, to get the photos that YOU really want!  Also, you don’t want to wait until the end of the school year, because then it is just one more thing that you have to do before graduation.  Do it now, so you can really enjoy it!  Talk to any of my 2012 JPSearcy model/representatives, or me directly! jps@jpsearcyphotography.com

This time of year, I get lots of families wanting to get photos to give as gifts.  I mean, what a fantastic idea, right?!  But sometimes it doesn’t work out for one reason or another.  Well, THIS family was determined to make it happen, even if their photos wouldn’t be back BEFORE Christmas!  This was a time that all of the grandkids could be together, so that is when it was done!  At least grandma will have a very nice new years gift coming to her!  She has a fantastic bunch of grandkids, who were a lot of fun to photograph.  Yes, they got a little silly by the end (and yes, that will make a sneak peek too), but that makes it all the more fun.

Merry Christmas Grandma!  Hope you love your grandkid photos!
