I’m not quite done with the class of 2019!  Yes, most of the seniors have had them done, but not everyone has!  If you haven’t yet gotten photos that you love, you still have time to give me a call and schedule a shoot.  We are getting close to being out of time, but we aren’t there yet 😉

I had the pleasure of meeting a super sweet girl for her senior photos this weekend.  Samantha wanted to have her shoot out at Rollins (and for good reason! It is beautiful there!).  We all had a great time, just hanging out, and getting some beautiful natural photos of  this beauty.  These are the kind of shoots that I really enjoy.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Oh, I had so much fun with this family!  I have been photographing both of their girls all year (so they may look familiar, and keep an eye out in another day or two for more of their sneak peeks coming out!).  So, it was so nice to photograph the whole family at their home.  We don’t always have to go to a park or a popular location.  If you want photos at home, or another place that is special to you and your family, then let’s have our session there!  Their beautiful home provided plenty of nice backdrops for us to use.  Grandma and Grandpa joined in on the shoot too, which I love!  They are all such a wonderful family, and I love that they trust me to capture all of these special times for them.

Another beautiful sunrise beach shoot for three beautiful seniors!  These three girls were also in my model program this year, and one of their bonus shoots that they wanted was the beach!  We had multiple reschedules including one recently when we made it all the way out to the beach only to find it so dark and foggy, we had to turn around and pick another date.  99% of the time, I can be able to say if we can shoot the day before, just by checking the weather forecast.  Saves us all from waking up super early and driving an hour to get to the beach!  But on a few rare cases, we get out there and it just isn’t very nice to shoot.  So, we just suck it up and pick a new date!  Thankfully, this rescheduled date gave us a beautiful morning to shoot.  Beautiful sunrise, nice temperatures (well, the water was pretty cold, but the air felt great).  Despite the cold water, one of the girls did decide to get in the water at the end.  Hey, whatever it takes for the photo, right?!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks for each of the girls:

A new program for seniors that I introduced this year, was called the “Model Experience”.  This was to take the place of my reps.  Now, I loved having reps, mostly because I got to work with them their entire senior year.  They had the opportunity to earn bonus photo shoots.  Well, the NEW program, was you pay one session fee for whichever level of “Model Experience” you wanted (based on how many bonus shoots you wanted).  Everyone has a main shoot in the summer, and then the bonus shoots are during the fall/winter.  They can have one bonus shoot or two bonus shoots.  And what the bonus shoots are, is completely up to them!  I ask what they want to do, and we go do it!  Most of the bonus shoots will be with one or two other models, and that just adds to the fun.  These two are sisters, so it just made sense for them to do the bonus shoots together!

This bonus shoot we did was out at the beach. Who doesn’t love a beach shoot?!  Here are a couple of sneak peeks of two of my models:

I absolutely LOVE photographing these kids!  I have been so lucky to be able to photograph the both of them since they were born!  Seeing them a couple times a year, I have not only been able to see them grow physically, but how they are growing into such neat little humans!  I just love talking with them, and hearing all about what is going on in their lives.  They are so smart and so talented, and just awesome kids!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks of the both of these amazing kids:

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 February, 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.
