Next senior up on the blog, is beautiful Lauren! Not only is she stunning, but she is super sweet, and I had so much fun photographing her. She and her mom decided on a deluxe (two location) session for her senior photo shoot. She knew she wanted Rollins, but wasn’t sure about the other. Mom wanted something with blue walls, so I thought of a location that I don’t use very often anymore (but it IS beautiful!) – Maitland Art Center. They have that fantastic blue mosaic wall! The reason I don’t use that one very often anymore, is because of the hours that they are open. It is just pretty much middle of the day, which is pretty hot during the summer time. And during the school year, they often have weddings going on during the weekends. So logistically, it is a difficult location to schedule. But for Lauren’s shoot, all the stars were aligned, and we were able to shoot there!
Here are a couple of sneak peeks from each of her locations:
Now, if you (or your senior), haven’t had your senior photos done yet, there is still time! And no, I’m not talking about the boring yearbook ones, I’m talking about going out on location and having FUN and getting gorgeous photos that you will WANT to have all over your house and to send to relatives. Right now, the weather is cooling off a little, so it is such a nice time for a session! Trust me, senior year goes by so quickly. You don’t want to wait too long, and miss out on getting beautiful, fun, timeless photos taken for this important milestone in their lives. Email me (email@example.com) and we can talk about you want for your shoot!
Next senior up on the blog, is the gorgeous Gianna! I was lucky enough to spend two days with her. Normally the deluxe (2 location) sessions are done in the same day, one right after the other. However, I don’t do that when one of the locations is the beach. Reason being, we are there at sunrise, and by the end, we are wet, sandy, and windblown. Not exactly optimal for going to the next location ;). So, we do it on a separate morning! Gianna chose the beach and her school for sports photos. When we were at the beach, she had a great entourage to come with her. Sisters and mom! I had a great time with all of those sweet ladies. And they were so smart, they opted to stay at the beach the night before. So, it wasn’t as early to get up and get going for the sunrise. It was a beautiful sunrise that morning. The next shoot day at the school, the entourage wasn’t able to join us, but Dad and her coach did (THANK YOU!!). And Dad helped me with the fire (yes, for sports, I do real fire – totally and completely safe, no worries). I’ve enjoyed getting to know Gianna a little better and getting her some beautiful senior photos!
Here are some sneak peeks from our shoots:
Announcing the annual senior sale! 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 12 – May 30. 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 😉 Summer really is the best time of year to do these shoots. Once school starts, there are just so much many things scheduled, and we can only shoot on the weekends. It is really best to get these done early and enjoy a fun session to kick off your senior year!
-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in June, and the session fee is only $75 ($125 for deluxe). In addition, you will receive 3 complimentary gift prints with your order (a gift print is your choice of an 8×10 or smaller)!
-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in July, and the session fee is only $100 ($150 for deluxe), and receive 2 complimentary gift prints 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 + 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.
Please pass the info on to your parents, so they are kept in the loop, and know all about the sale! And please pass along to all of your friends and classmates, we don’t want anyone to miss out on this. Especially since this sale is not limited per school. Whoever calls to book during the sale, gets the discounted pricing!
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!
I’m not quite done with the class of 2018! Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Cassidy! She is super sweet, and I had a great time on her deluxe shoot with her and her mom. The two locations Cassidy chose were two of my most popular locations ~ Park Ave and Rollins. We were lucky with a very nice morning to shoot! Temperature was perfect, not too hot, not too cold, and overcast skies. Can’t ask for much more than that!
Here are a few sneak peeks from Cassidy’s shoot:
If you are in the class of 2018, and haven’t gotten senior photos that you love yet, why not give me a call?! I am still booking for current seniors, but I do want to warn you. There isn’t very much time left! The second semester of the senior year flies by, and graduation will be here before you know it. THANKS!!
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 January, 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 ~ firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text me 407-977-6296.
Next senior up on the blog is JJ! Nope, not done with seniors yet! Time is winding down for the class of 2018, so if you are still needing senior photos, you will want to get on my calendar soon. But back to THIS session ~ it was JJ and his mom at Rollins. We had such a good time, and he is such a great guy! His mom would do anything to get a good, natural smile out of him. So basically, I was entertained as well. Haha! He was a great sport, and I kept my promise of keeping his shoot under an hour. With guys, I work faster. Girls? They tend to want me to drag it out longer 😉
Here are a few sneak peeks from his shoot:
This isn’t a typical sneak peek post, sorry about that! This is more of a “what’s up and coming” info post!
So, if you have been following me for a while, you know that every year applications go up to select my next class of senior reps. I have LOVED each and every one of my reps. I love working with them all year, and I love keeping in touch with them after graduation. They have been a great resource in helping me spread the word to their friends about JPSearcy. But it seems like lots of other photographers have started using reps as well. So, I guess it is time to shake things up a bit! I don’t like doing what everyone else is doing ;).
I am working on a plan to put the focus completely on the senior, and giving them a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. This will be open to all upcoming seniors (class of 2019), and I won’t be limiting how many from each school. No applications or anything like that. Just giving everyone the opportunity for the Model Experience! It will include multiple sessions through out the year. Of course, I will still offer beautiful photos as a part of regular senior sessions. This is just something a bit more! I’m still finalizing the details, and will be sending it all out to whoever is interested. Do you want to be a part of the very first JPSearcy Model Experience team? Just take a second and fill out the short form with your contact info, and you will be the first one to hear the details! And feel free to pass it along to your friends who would totally be up for an over-the-top senior model experience!
Next senior up on the blog is Evan! He is such a nice guy, and although it may not have been his idea to schedule a senior photo shoot ;), he was a great sport and made his mom very happy. I tell my guys that I promise I make the shoot quick and painless, and they may even have a little fun, believe it or not! We did his shoot at Rollins. Rollins is a great location – perfect for both the guys AND the girls.
School has started!! So, if you have not yet gotten on my calendar, and you want to, please contact me ASAP and we will talk! Weekend dates are very limited, so you want to get on the calendar soon!
Summer is coming to an end, so that means it is time for the rising seniors to get their senior photos taken! Yes, you have to get your yearbook photos taken, but that is not what I am talking about. I’m talking about senior photos that are far more personal and fun! You pick the location, and bring several different outfits, and I’ll take care of the rest. We will have a lot of fun, and we will get a lot of beautiful photos to celebrate this important milestone in your life! I have many already on my calendar for the summer, but I do have some open dates left. If you have not yet gotten on my calendar, let me know so I can take care of that for you. Once school starts, your schedules get much more difficult (and we can only shoot on weekends then!). All of my summer shoots are first thing in the morning, so we are finished before it gets too hot out, so no worries about that. Still have questions, check out my website www.jpsearcyseniors.com, or talk to any of my reps, or reach out to me! I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have.
Now, on to more fun things ~ SNEAK PEEKS!! I had a great time meeting Kayla and her mom senior session. She is so beautiful and we had so much fun! And the wardrobe?! Gorgeous! I think she was trying to set the record for the most outfit changes 😉 The locations she chose were Rollins and Park Ave in Winter Park.
