I’m not quite done with the class of 2018!  Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Cassidy!  She is super sweet, and I had a great time on her deluxe shoot with her and her mom.  The two locations Cassidy chose were two of my most popular locations ~ Park Ave and Rollins.  We were lucky with a very nice morning to shoot!  Temperature was perfect, not too hot, not too cold, and overcast skies.  Can’t ask for much more than that!

Here are a few sneak peeks from Cassidy’s shoot:

If you are in the class of 2018, and haven’t gotten senior photos that you love yet, why not give me a call?!  I am still booking for current seniors, but I do want to warn you.  There isn’t very much time left!  The second semester of the senior year flies by, and graduation will be here before you know it.  THANKS!!

It is that time of year again!  Time to start working on the graduation announcements.  If you had a shoot with me this year, you probably saw the graduation announcements that I offer.  I told you that I don’t take orders for them until after January, remember?  Well, it’s time!  Don’t worry, this design appointment won’t take nearly as long as your first viewing/ordering appointment.  You have already seen your photos, you know which are your favs, so this next part is pretty quick and painless.  In the past, they have taken about 15 minutes.  If you are interested in making an announcement appointment, send me a quick email letting me know when is best for you to come by.

If you have NOT had a shoot with me yet, it isn’t too late!  We still have time to have a great session, get beautiful portraits, and get your custom graduation announcements back.  All before graduation!  While it isn’t too late now, it will be too late soon.  So you don’t want to wait too much longer to get on my calendar.  This last semester flies by, and towards the end of the semester, you and your family will be busy with graduation plans and parties.  Trust me!  If you would like to talk to me about a shoot, please email me ~ jpsearcyphotography@gmail.com or call/text me 407-977-6296.

I’ve had some questions and confusion about next year’s plans (for the class of 2019), so I wanted to do a little post to better explain and clarify a little!

No, I am NOT doing reps next year.  I know, I’ve been doing them for the past 8 or 9 years, so this is a big change!  But all that means, is no one is working to get referrals and earn extra shoots!  Every one can focus on THEIR own session, and making the most of it.  I am starting a new program, for those seniors who want to have more than one shoot with me.  That is the model program.  It is a brand new program that I came up with, that I think could be a lot of fun!  If you would like to participate in the model program, you would pay one session fee and it would cover the main shoot in the summer + several bonus shoots throughout their senior year (including a beach shoot, night time shoot, destination shoot in Miami, and a family shoot).  How many bonus shoots is up to you!  I have three different options available.  Of course, I throw in a few little perks to those that are in the model program 😉  If making your senior photo experience last all year is something you (or your senior) would be interested in, please contact me, and I’ll give you all of the details!

If one session is enough, then that is great too!  Of course I will still be taking regular clients.  You do NOT have to be a part of the model program to have your session with me!  You will still be able to pick one or two locations (on the same day), and have a wonderful time and get lots of gorgeous photos!  I will start booking in May for the class of 2019.  Most seniors DO get their senior photos taken during the summer before their senior year!  The reasons for this is simply, you have the most time in the summer!  We can shoot 7 days a week, and we don’t need to work around school schedules.  I know everyone is worried about the heat, but let me put your mind at ease!  We shoot early mornings only in the summer.  We are done before it gets too hot (and starts the afternoon thunderstorms!).  You will want to book your senior photo session as soon as the calendar opens up, just so you have the best choice in dates!

Hopefully that clears things about about model vs rep vs client!  If not, please do reach out to me!  I’m happy to talk to you further about any questions you may have!

Happy New Year!  I am so excited to be starting another year, meeting and photographing new people!  And even better, photographing families AGAIN!  I love seeing families come back to me, wether it be annually, or after several years.  The first posting of 2018 is a family that I met a couple of years ago, when the youngest daughter was one of my seniors.  I adore her, and we have kept in touch!  Well, her siblings were all going to be in town for the holidays, so they decided they would like to do another family session!  Loved seeing them again!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from our family shoot (and one with the daughter and her boyfriend 😉 ) –
