Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Adison!  Not only is she ridiculously adorable, she is such a sweetheart too!  And so organized and on the ball!  I had to do pretty much no prep with her, because she had it all handled.   I met her mom and older sister a few years ago, and now it is Adison’s turn.  I was so touched that she knew she wanted to use me for her senior photos.  She chose the same location as her sister (good taste runs in the family!).  Rollins has been the hot spot for sure this summer.  With good reason.  It has lots of different backgrounds, pretty much no one there at the time we go, and great light!  But just because lots of people go there, that doesn’t mean everyone’s photos will look the same.  Different personalities, different parts of campus, all lead to your own beautiful photos.

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

And for those 2020 seniors who haven’t yet scheduled their session, I am now booking fall dates!  As soon as school starts, weekends tend to fill up quickly, so don’t wait to get on my calendar.  I’d love to meet you and get you some beautiful senior photos!

Next beautiful senior up on the blog is Grace!  Grace has had several of her friends use me for their senior photos, and I was so touched that she was 100% certain that she wanted to use me too!  She, like most seniors, was a little nervous about her shoot.  But like I tell everyone, this is a no-stress environment.  It’s time to relax and have fun, and the beautiful photos will follow.  And in Grace’s shoot, that was certainly true!  I had a great time getting to know her, and I got so many great photos of her.  She is such a natural beauty and a sweetheart!  And as a bonus, by the end of her shoot, she ROCKED her serious face!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot at Rollins:

 

For those seniors who have not yet scheduled their session, I only have a couple of dates available before school starts.  If you are wanting a shoot, contact me ASAP to get one of these last days before school starts!!

The next senior up on the blog, is a super sweet, beautiful girl!  Cierra and her mom chose Rollins as the location for her shoot.  We had so much fun together!  She told me at the start that this was something she was doing for her mom.  But it wasn’t long into our session that she started relaxing and having fun.  I tell you, she was a natural in front of the camera!  And all smiles!  I have so many beautiful photos of her from our shoot, it was hard to pick just a few for her sneak peeks.  I can’t wait for her and mom to see ALL of them.  But for now, sneak peeks will have to do 😉

I’m back from vacation, and ready to meet some new seniors!  The next senior up on the blog is Tyler.  He brought the whole fam with him to his shoot, and we all had so much fun!  I’m loving that more and more guys are booking this year!  Guys, I promise, it isn’t as bad as going to take the yearbook photo.  I can be quick (if you want me to), we will have fun, we will get lots of great photos, and you will score some major brownie points with mom.  She will probably even take you out to breakfast after your shoot ;).  Tyler was so great (and yes, he got to go out to breakfast afterwards!), and was nice and relaxed in front of the camera.  I had a great time getting to know Tyler and his family!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Madison!  I think the class of 2020 is off to a great start!  I am having so much fun with these seniors.  Now, this next senior, I have known for a very long time.  Since elementary school!  (I’m excited to be photographing kids that have grown up with my own)  Madison is so sweet and we had so much fun on her deluxe (2 location) session.  The two locations that she chose were Rollins and downtown Orlando.  I love when there is a deluxe session, that they choose two totally different types of locations.  That way you have such a wide variety of looks in your photos!  We got very lucky with the downtown shoot.  As you know, it is summer.  Which means afternoon thunderstorms.  Every day.  And since we were going to do an evening shoot downtown, we were taking a big chance.  And while there were tons of dark clouds, we managed to avoid the rain.  AND as a bonus, we had a great breeze to shoot with (since it was about to storm 😉 ).

Next senior up on the blog is Zachary!  He is such a great guy!  I photographed his older brother a couple of years ago, AND then I photographed his entire family too!  That was the first time I met him.  Now, he may not have been totally excited to wake up early for a photo shoot on his summer break ;), but he was a great sport and did it for his mom.  And I tried to make it as painless as possible for him.  I tell the guys that I shoot, I can get a lot of great shots in a short amount of time IF they aren’t totally into it.  Other guys don’t mind, and end up having fun, so we take a little longer.  It is completely up to the comfort level of each senior.  That’s why I don’t have specific session times, and why I only shoot one senior per day.  The shoot takes as long as it takes!  Some are 45 minutes, some are closer to 2 hours.  (They still all end up with around the same amount of photos to choose from).  The senior shoots are about the SENIOR.  Whatever they want, is what they get!

Next senior up on the boy is Stephan!  I am so excited to have more guys on my calendar this summer!  I usually get a couple every year, but this year is off to a great start with guys booking their shoots too.  Note to the senior guys, I promise, I will make this as painless as possible for you.  No crazy posing, no 3 hour sessions.  Just relaxed, and having somewhat of a good time ;), and getting you lots of great photos.  Not to mention, I’m sure you will score some points with mom!  She might even take you out to breakfast after the shoot 😉

Stephan was great.  Such a nice guy.  Totally relaxed and laid back for his shoot.  He didn’t want a location with a lot of people around, so we chose Kraft Azalea.  It was perfect for him.  Lots of nature, not a lot of people, and not a big spread out location.  I think he even had a little bit of fun 😉

The class of 2020 is off to a great start!  The next senior up on the blog is the gorgeous Madison!  We had so much fun out at the beach for our sunrise shoot.  She had a special request for her shoot (which I LOVE!!  If you have something that you like or want to try on your shoot, tell me! This shoot is all about YOU, so I want you to get the senior photos that you really want.)  Madison had been following me for a while, and she saw a beach photo that I had done a few years ago.  It was on a morning that didn’t have a nice sunrise, so I went for a darker photo.  Almost looked like it could have been taken at night,  Totally different than my usual sunrise photos.  No problem!  With lighting, I can make it look darker and moodier.  And then in the next shot, have it back to a sunny beach scene.

Here are some sneak peeks from her shoot (including the dark sunrise):

It’s time!  Time for the next senior class!  And the very first senior up on the blog is MY senior.  Yep, my “baby” is a senior ((sniff, sniff)).  I asked him what he wanted for his senior photo session, and he wanted to go downtown at night.  So he will get two shoots (perks of being a photographer’s kid 😉 ), and the second one will be next week during the day.  I didn’t want to press my luck and try two locations with him in one day. I love photographing my boys (and I love it when they humor me and let me).

I am SO excited for the next senior class!  I’m excited because I already have several booked for this summer!  I still have some availability and one more day of the sale, so make sure to message me/email me/call me to get YOUR session on the calendar!

Here are some sneak peeks from our evening downtown:

Announcing the annual senior sale for the class of 2020!  Now, in the past, this sale was only 2 days long.  This year, I’m changing things up a little, and making things a little less stressful.  This year, the senior sale is going to run from May 15 – May 31.  This is the ONE sale that I run all year, so you don’t want to miss out!  This year, the earlier in the summer that you have your shoot, the more you will save! Don’t worry, all of my summer shoots are held early morning, so it won’t be too hot or sweaty for our shoot ;). In addition to the reduced session fee, anyone booking during the sale will also receive 2 complimentary gift prints with order (a gift print is your choice of an 8×10 or smaller – an $80 value!).

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in June, and the session fee is only $100 ($150 for deluxe).  In addition, you will receive 5 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in July, and the session fee is only $125 ($175 for deluxe), you will receive 4 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in August, and the session fee is only $150 ($200 for deluxe), you will receive 3 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in September, and the session fee is only $175 ($225 for deluxe).  you will receive 2 complimentary social media images with your order.

The details – this sale is for senior sessions only.  If you call and book your senior photo session during the sale, you will receive a discounted session fee + 2 free gift prints with your order.  Session fees must be paid at time of booking, and are non-refundable (in case of weather issues, I will reschedule your date with no additional session fee). All sessions are done on location (of your choice).  Regular senior session is one location, Deluxe senior session is two locations (in the same day).  I only take one senior client per day, so when that date is filled, it is not available for another client.  So, if you know you want JPSearcy to photograph you for your senior photos, you will want to call and pick your date early!  Simple as that!

As always. Session fees are for the session time and editing only, and do not include any prints or digital files.  Print packages are ordered at our viewing/ordering appointment approximately 3 weeks after our shoot.  I have 6 different flexible packages ranging from $240-$1890.  Minimum order for regular sessions is $240, for deluxe (2 location) sessions is $500.

*Regular pricing session fee is $200 for a regular senior session, $300 for a deluxe senior session.

Still have questions? Don’t hesitate to reach out to me and ask! Otherwise, I look forward to booking your summer session very soon.  We will have fun at our shoot AND get beautiful photos to mark this important milestone in your life!
