Can you believe that it is already time to talk about the next class of seniors? Class of 2020! As early is it is, I’m feeling it is a little late for me. Being that back when I used senior reps, I started looking for the next class at the beginning of January. Last year (class of 2019) I didn’t do a rep program. I always loved having reps, but hated having to pick the reps. There are so many amazing girls, and I wanted to take all of them! So, last year, I said NO MORE!! I did introduce a “Model Experience”, which was basically all of the perks of a rep with none of the work (and no applications!). It was fantastic! And if there is interest, I’d be happy to do a version of the model experience for the class of 2020. Just let me know if you are interested.
I have been in business 13 years now. That is crazy to me! My first seniors are turning 30! And my new seniors (class of 2020) were in preK/kindergarten! It has been one heck of a ride! This past year, you may have noticed, I have cut back some on the sessions that I am taking. With my kiddos being grown (my baby is in the class of 2020!), I’m having the opportunity to do other things as well. (Gotta keep things interesting!). Now, I can’t imagine stopping photography all together. Photo sessions and meeting some amazing seniors make me happy! Not to mention, I have promised MY senior that I would at least keep going for his class ;). In the past 13 years, what seniors want change almost every year! I like to stay on top of what they are wanting, so the entire experience, from the booking to getting the prints back at the end, is a great experience and exceeds their expectations. So, for the class of 2020, I’m putting out a little survey. This is your opportunity to tell me what YOU want! I will take all of the info and answers you give me to heart, and I can cater my offerings to what YOU want!
This will take you just a few minutes, and it is open for seniors AND their parents. Who ever wants to fill it out (or BOTH of you can fill it out!). To say THANK YOU to those who participate, if you end up booking a senior shoot with me, I will include a complimentary gift print with your order (a gift print is an 8×10 or a 5×7, and is valued at $40). And to sweeten the pot, I will randomly draw 3 names in one week. Two will get $100 credit on their order (can be used towards the session fee OR print order), and one will get a complimentary session fee (for one location) AND a complimentary gift print with their order. How I am going to do this random selection, is each entry will get put your name on a slip of paper, and I will have my oldest son reach in the pot and choose the 3 winners. Even if you don’t win one of the 3 top prizes, you will still get a free gift print with your order AND you get to tell me what you are looking for so I can be the perfect photographer for you!

In the meantime, make sure to share this with your friends (doesn’t matter what school they go to), and follow me on social media. I’m easy to find. I’m jpsearcy everywhere! (instagram, snapchat, twitter) On facebook, it is under JPSearcy Photography. And if you have more to tell me or talk about for your shoot, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And lastly, a blog post without photos is boring! Here are a few random senior photos <3
Happy new year! I hope everyone had a very happy holiday. I have another great senior sneak peek to start our year off right! This is of Faith, one of my 2019 senior models. As you know if you have been following me, this year I changed things up from reps to models! Which basically means, I don’t have to have an application process and choose reps anymore (yay!!). Anyone who wants to be a part of my model experience is welcome! There were different levels of models, and those levels included different amounts of shoots during the school year. Everyone got their main shoot during the summer before senior year started, and then either 1 or 2 bonus shoots to happen during the school year! For Faith’s bonus shoots, she chose Disney World and then this night shoot downtown. It has been so much fun getting to know her throughout this year. She is a fantastic girl, and we have gotten so many beautiful photos of her this year! But this isn’t her final shoot. She will have one more mini shoot when her cap/gown come in before graduation. For next school year, I will be having a tweaked version of this new model program! There will be some changes next year for all of my clients and offerings (which will be worked out and announced in the next month or so, no worries!). So if you are in the class of 2020, keep me in mind, and follow me (I’m jpsearcy on all social media), so you get the details when they are released!
But for now, how about take a sneak peek at the super sweet Faith?! We went around downtown Orlando in the early evening to have a shoot with some nighttime city lights!
