Name – Caroline Labreche

School – Winter springs high school

Favorite TV show – Modern Family, The Walking Dead and Duck Dynasty! Haha

Favorite sports team –¬†Florida State!

Friends describe you as –¬†My friends describe me as a relatively funny person who can be loud and crazy at times, really caring for others, and ‘the girl who can keep a conversation going.’ Ohh I believe I’m really nice and think a lot of my jokes are funny even when they aren’t. Haha

Best day ever would be –¬†The best day ever would be going to England again and just so happening to bump into One Direction and having one fall madly in love with me, and then getting some fish and chips. Or, being able to dance in the New York City Ballet company.

Something that makes you smile –¬†The beach. Seeing a dog sticking its head out the car window. A really nice clean room (with the carpet vacuumed). Ellen Degeneres. And coming home to see my family each day.

What is your dream vacation? –¬†My dream vacation…hmm that hard. But it would be a tie between going back to Italy during the summer, or going to Australia, Ireland, Greece, or Spain. Those four places are all on my bucket list and I need to visit them soon!

What could you not live without? –¬†I couldn’t live with out my family. That are my main supporters and they really encourage me to be the best person I could be. Also, I couldn’t live without pasta. I think I eat it about twice a week and I don’t think that I’ll ever get bored of it.

What color best describes your personality and why? –¬†I think that green would describe me the most because green is just one of those colors that stands out just enough and is almost individualistic. Green to me represents someone who can stand on their own and not have to depend on others to do things. I believe that’s how I run my life therefore, I reflect green.

What are your plans for after high school? –¬†After high school I would like to attend Marymount Manhattan or Florida State University to get a BFA (bachelors in fine arts).

In 10 years I think I will . . .In ten years I think I will just becoming an artistic director at a dance company somewhere (I’m hoping New York City!).

And lastly, why do you think others should book a senior session with JPSearcy? –¬†I think someone should book their senior sessions with JP Searcy because first of all the photos are incredible. She puts out an extra ordinary product for seniors (and others) and her quality in shooting and experimenting with one is excellently done. I was nervous in the beginning because trying to be yourself with someone is hard when you’ve just met a person that same day, however she immediately made me feel comfortable in my own skin and allowed me to show some of my crazy personality in my pictures. Even the posing and the ‘serious faces’ were not at all awkward, and I really got into making my photos different from other girls. JP Searcy allows you to almost be the director of your own photos because in the end, it’s really all about you! She allows you do give ideas and then adds a little bit of flare to make your pictures really stand out! I have worked with other photographers before and JP Searcy has by far been my favorite one I got to work with.
