Next senior up on the blog is AJ!  I had such a great time meeting and photographing him at Rollins.  I photographed his sister a few years ago, so I was excited when his mom called to set up AJ’s shoot.  (I love it when families are so happy with their experience, they come back to me!). Typically when moms book their guys for their senior session, they (the guys) want me to just get this over with as quick and painlessly as possible.  But then they realize it isn’t nearly as bad as getting their yearbook photos, and they relax and even have a little fun.  AJ was so great, and just wanted to have good photos, so I didn’t need to rush at all.

Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is the gorgeous Francesca!  We had such a great time on our shoot at Rollins and Dickson Azalea.  Those two locations give a nice variety of backgrounds for us to work with.  She was such a natural in front of the camera, makes my job easy!  She seemed to have both the smiles AND serious faces nailed (which isn’t easy to do, especially in summer heat!).

This next family sneak peek is a little different.  This is part of MY family!  This is my sister’s family (who doesn’t get in front of my camera very often) while we were on vacation in Maine.  I do get the kiddos in my lens probably close to once a year or every other year.  But the entire family?  Much more difficult to do!  So, I didn’t give them much of a choice.  It is going to happen when we were all on vacation together ;).  I love this little family so much!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Bailey!  She is so super sweet and so smiley!  No matter where we were, or what I had her do, she had such a great big smile on her face.  I’ll take that as she was having a good time ;).

Bailey brought her mom with us to her shoot at Rollins.  She is actually the 3rd sibling in her family to come to me for her senior photos.  I love that her family was so happy with their experience, that they want to continue it for each of their kids.  And I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and photographing each one of them.  Very nice family!  Now, on to her sneak peeks!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Abby!  Abby had a deluxe (two location) session.  Since she is on the water polo team, she wanted the pool as one of her locations.  I love being able to go to different places!  The second location she chose was Casa Feliz.  This is one of my favorite places, because it was one of my very first locations that I started shooting at over 10 years ago.  The one tricky part about Casa, is that I prefer to shoot it in the afternoon.  Afternoon in the summer is tough.  Not only is it really hot out, it is also a good chance that it will be raining.  (And I have to book it in advance).  So, basically all the stars need to be aligned!  This afternoon was no exception.  It was rainy all afternoon, but we kept in touch and when it looked like there was going to be a break in the rain, we headed over.  The rain gods smiled on us, and held off for us to do our shoot.  So glad that we could have a good day to have this sweet girl’s shoot!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Kaila!  I had such a great time with Kaila, her mom, and her friends who came along.  Kaila is a super sweet girl, who was full of smiles and up for anything (including getting crashed by waves). She and her mom wanted a location with water, so what better place than the beach?! Beach equals really early morning, but it is always worth it.  I’ve never had a “bad morning” at the beach.  Sure it is early, but you can always take a nap when you get back home ;).

Here are some sneak peeks from our beach shoot:

Back from my relaxing vacation, and now it is time to get back to some fun senior sessions!  Next senior up is the beautiful Maura!  Her entourage included mom, younger sister, and friend (who was a past JPSearcy senior too!).  She chose Rollins as her location.  We had a lot of laughs at our shoot.  Maura is a funny, lighthearted girl.  She didn’t even mind when her mom suggested her doing something different, like running thru the sprinklers.  I can honestly say, I have never had a senior want to run in the sprinklers before!  So when we were done, she happily ran and leaped in the water.  We ended up only having about 2 minutes and then the sprinklers turned off.  Did get a couple of really cute shots in that short time though!
