This session was so much fun! Mostly because of the senior I was shooting (she is awesome!), but also because we were going to a location that isn’t one of my “usual” ones. I love that we have so many fabulous locations in a close radius, but we are so lucky to live where we do, because there are lots and lots of locations that we can use! This one was out at Disney, at one of the resorts. So, anytime I can shoot someplace different, I have so much fun! If you are wanting a shoot with me, and you have a great location in mind, keep in mind, I am more than happy to go where ever you want to go! This is YOUR senior photo session. It is all about you! Tell me where YOU want to go, and I am there!
Here are a few sneaks from Nicolette’s shoot:
I am so happy to be getting back to photographing some seniors! I just had a few more book up, so for the rest of you slackers ;), who haven’t had your senior photos done, it is TIME!! Time to get on my calendar, because the rest of your semester is going to just fly by. Graduation will be here before you know it (I know it may not feel that way, but trust me!!), and you don’t want to miss this important milestone of senior photos!
After finding Park Ave to be way too busy this particular morning, we decided to head to Rollins. Much better! College kids don’t get up that early, so we had the place completely to ourselves. Yes, it was a little chilly, but Chantel braved the “cold” and had a beautiful photo shoot with me! She is a complete sweetheart, and I am so excited to be showing her some sneak peeks!
I swear, every year, it gets tougher and tougher to pick my next class of senior reps! I am so lucky to have so many amazing people want to be a part of the JPSearcy team! Most of my clients come from Hagerty, Oviedo, and Winter Springs, so those schools have more reps than the other ones. But I am so happy to have a couple of other schools represented as well this year! I also am happy to have a Lake Mary and Lake Brantley rep. I would love to grow in more schools, so I am super excited to have these reps to help me do that!
Now, to just get to it! My new reps for the class of 2015:
Amanda – Oviedo High
Bri – Hagerty High
Chelsea – Oviedo High
Guerin – Lake Brantley High
Jessica – Lake Mary High
Jules – Hagerty High
Lindsay – Winter Springs High
Natalie – Hagerty High
Sydney – Oviedo High
Taylor – Winter Springs
And then one last one. He is not a “real” rep. He is an unofficial rep, my son Will (yes, I have an upcoming senior this year too! Scary thought!). He has no choice but to have his senior photos taken. Haha! He is a typical guy, who doesn’t care about photos. But this year, I could use a couple of guys to show that it isn’t just a “girl thing” to get senior photos taken. Hopefully, with more guy photos in my gallery, it will inspire more to set up sessions with me!
Will – Hagerty High
I have lots of exciting shoots planed for my new reps. So, if you are a junior, you are going to want to talk to my reps to get all of the info about getting YOUR senior photos taken with me!
First of all, I want to THANK this family for being so patient in waiting for their sneak peeks! They had to wait WEEKS to see them! First, because it was around then holidays, and then because of major technical difficulties. If you follow me on Facebook, you know a little about my recent computer woes, so I won’t hash it again. Needless to say, it has been testing all of the back up systems I have in place. And I am very happy to say, even with a major crash, everything was able to come back. It just took me a little time!
Now, on to tell you about this family. They are awesome. If you have read my blog at all for any length of time, you have seen these kiddos growing up. They are so diligent with having their photos done every 6 months. And I am talking about starting when their son was BORN! Now, he has a sister, and he is in elementary school, and now he has no teeth ;). Often times, mom decides on what the photos will be about, based on what they are “in to” at the time. And right now, he is all about soccer! So, naturally, we need to do some at a soccer field. And his sister? Well, she greeted me all excited like. She said that her tiara broke, and she couldn’t wear it for her photos like she wanted to. BUT, mom said that she could wear HER tiara! I was thinking, how cool is mom that she rocks a tiara at home!? I need to get me one of those! But what she was really talking about was the headpiece that mom wore at her wedding! How precious is that?!
Here are some (long awaited) sneak peeks from their session:
This first one, he was making fun of me. “Oh look! I’m Ms. Jeannette! I’m taking pictures!” Stinker! I told him that for making fun of me, that was going to be one of his sneak peeks!
Sorry for the delay in getting these put out. I was having technical difficulties, but I am back on track now! If you were a client of mine this year, I want to offer you graduation announcements that are a little different than the traditional ones that the school offers. You have these beautiful senior photos, why not show them off in your announcements?! What I am posting here, is just to give you an idea of what this year’s announcements will be like. If you are interested, shoot me an email, and we can talk more in depth, and I can work up the mock up just for you.
The announcements are double sided cards, sized 5×7, can come printed on linen paper (has a little texture to it) or pearl paper (has a little sheen to it), and they include either white or parchment colored envelopes. The pricing is: 25 cards for $75; 50 cards for $135; 75 cards for $185; and 100 cards for $225.
First, you will choose your favorite image for the front of the card. This picture will take up the entire front, and you will have a name stamp on the bottom (see photos for choices in “stamps”). Then you choose the layout of the back of the card. They are ranging from 2 photos + text to 6 photos + text. And then lastly, you choose the background “paper” to go on the back (under the photos and text). I have lots of different choices (but too many to post here, so when you email me, I will email you the different sample “papers”).
The announcements can be ordered at any time now. I know some of you are itching to check this off your graduation-to-do-list. After we get the final design approved, it will take about 2 weeks to get them back. So PLEASE do not wait until April or May and then panic on me ;).
So exciting! Here is the official application for the class of 2015 JPSearcy Senior reps:
PLEASE before submitting your application, make sure your parents know about it, and are ok with you applying. I will have to contact each of them anyway, and I don’t want to surprise them ;). I am looking for reps for Hagerty, Oviedo, Winter Springs, Lake Howell, Lake Brantley, Winter Park and any other school in the nearby area (public or private schools are fine, even if I don’t have a rep there this year!).
After submitting your application, please go to your social media sites and add me, favorite me, like me, whatever! I am jpsearcy on twitter and instagram, and Jeannette Priest Searcy on facebook (and jpsearcy on the business page of facebook). It is easier for you to find me and add me, than it is for me to find you!
I leave the applications up for as long as they need to be for me to get lots of possible reps, and then when I think I have enough fantastic people to choose from, I close it for that school. Some schools fill up QUICKLY (I’m talking within hours!) Others take a little longer, maybe a few days. Once I have closed the applications for your school, that is it, no more accepted! So, bottom line, if you know you want to do this, and you know that you would be a fantastic rep for me, apply NOW!!
All of the info about the JPSearcy rep program is listed in the blog entry right before this one, so if you haven’t read it yet, please do!
Any questions for me, I can be reached by email – firstname.lastname@example.org or by text 407-977-6296 (or any other social media 😉 ). Good luck!!
