Next senior up on the blog is another one that I have known since she was little.  I did a shoot for her and her sister back when she was in kindergarten!  I did her sister’s senior photos 5 years ago, and I was so excited to do her senior photos now!  I haven’t seen her in years, so it was so great to catch up with her and her mom, and to see what a sweet and beautiful person she has grown into (even though she was pretty stinking cute as a kindergartener 😉 ).  Kaley wanted to have a deluxe (2 location) session, and the locations she chose were two totally different ones, so she will have a very nice variety of looks in her gallery.  Her locations were sunrise at the beach, and night time at Park Ave.

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

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!!

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!

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):

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!

The next senior up on the blog, is my last official 2019 high school senior!  And what a great way to wrap up this year.  Hannah is not only beautiful, but so sweet and was a pleasure to photograph.  I had a great time with her and her mom hitting all of the hot spots around Rollins campus.  I just love shooting there!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

I’m not done with the class of 2019 yet!  This may be the latest that I have ever photographed seniors, AND this one isn’t my last!  I’m loving these last minute seniors!  Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Maya!  I had such a great time meeting and photographing Maya out at the beach.  She is such a sweetheart, and so much fun to photograph.  Not to mention, we had a beautiful sunrise morning to work with.  It isn’t fun waking up that early, BUT absolutely no one is ever sorry they did.  And besides, you can always go home and take a nap ;).

Here are a few sneak peeks from our sunrise beach shoot:

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:

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.

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 (jpsearcyphotography@gmail.com) and we can talk about you want for your shoot!
