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.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

‘Tis the season for family photos!  Now, not all of my family clients want sneak peeks, because they want to save them to send out to family.  And that is totally understandable and no problem!  This family wanted to do family photos to have new and updated family photos, not just for a holiday card.  I have photographed one of their daughters for her senior photos this year, and then mom decided it was time to do a whole family session.  LOVE THAT!!  She wanted to do it at the beach.  I think the kids would have been happier if it was the beach in the afternoon, not at sunrise ;), but they were great sports and woke up super early.  And we were so lucky with a gorgeous sunrise that morning!  (That part I can’t control, so I am always super excited when it all works out like this). All said and done, I’m sure all 3 took naps that day, knowing that they made their parents happy with some beautiful new family photos!

It isn’t too often that you will find me photographing a wedding!  But there are a few special times that I will.  This is one of those times!  A very small intimate wedding (with just the couple and immediate family) for a long time friend of mine.  I’d say that is a special time that I would do a wedding ;). The ceremony was supposed to be on the beach, but with the red tide issues going on right now, it was moved to a park near the beach.  The weather was pretty overcast, and there were some kind of strange little bugs that were attacking all of our legs, but none of that dampened the mood at all.  Beautiful couple with a very sweet ceremony and love all around them.  I’d call that a perfect wedding day!

Here are a few sneak peeks for you to enjoy:

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 😉 ) –

A wedding?!  Yep, you are reading that correctly!  JPSearcy photographed a wedding!  No, this isn’t something that I am doing all the time now, just in special circumstances.  I’ve known the groom for a couple years, and he is a great guy.  And as soon as I met his bride, I fell in love with her immediately.  So, I was honored to photograph their wedding.

Their day started at the park for their bridal portraits.  They opted to do a “first look”.  What that is, is where they see each other before the wedding.  They get to share a special moment, just the two of them, without all of their friends and family to see each other and spend a little time together.  Oh, and get photos taken too ;).  What was unique about their first look, was afterwards, they had allotted lots of time to do all of their wedding photos of them and them with their wedding party.  This was such a great idea, because then after the wedding, they can spend all of their time at the reception with their friends and family.  After their photos, we went back for the ceremony and reception.  It was such a lovely wedding held at home.  And they really lucked out with the best weather day of the season.  All the stars were aligned for them on their special day.

Here are some sneak peeks from their day.  To see more, be sure to check on Facebook – www.facebook.com/jpsearcy.  I will be adding more there as I get them edited:

Next family up on the blog was so much fun to photograph!  Mom had been planning this session for months and Dad was just so happy to be surrounded by his beautiful girls.  I really love photographing families with older kids.  (Of course I love the little ones too 😉 ) But when I have the opportunity to photograph families with older kids, often times, they haven’t done this in many years.  And I promise, it is SO much easier when they are older ;).

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next family up on the blog, is one of my senior rep’s family!  She was so excited to have photos done with her family.  I love photographing senior’s families!  I feel that I get to know the seniors pretty well, it is fun to get the rest of the fam in front of my lens.  They selected Kraft Azalea, which is a pretty popular family shoot location.  It has great light and lots of trees.

Here are a few sneak peeks from their shoot:

Next family session up on the blog, is a super fun family.  I just photographed the oldest for her senior photos.  I love when I have the opportunity to photograph seniors’ entire family!  This family decided they wanted beach photos.  No problem!  Sunrise is early, but so worth it!  We had a beautiful morning to shoot this beautiful family.

I was so happy to finally get the opportunity to photograph this sweet family.  We have been rescheduling for months! But the wait was worth it.  We had a beautiful morning in Winter Park.  And the family was as sweet as could be.

I was so excited to photograph this sweet family.  I met mom and oldest daughter for her senior photos earlier in the summer.  And they were so great to work with!  So, naturally, I couldn’t wait to meet the rest of the family to get some beautiful family photos for them.  We shot at the same place as we did her senior photos (Rollins).  It is a great location for pretty much any age group!  Must be why it is one of my most requested locations.
