Next senior up on the blog, is a super sweet and beautiful Sarah!  We had such a great time on our shoot at Kraft Azalea.  That location is always one of my favorites.  Nice and small park, with great light, and lots of nature!  Her mom and cousin joined the session, not only to fill the role of “guest snapchatter”, but to also be Sarah’s personal assistants.  I love it when family is able to join the senior for their shoot.  It helps the senior feel more relaxed and it is helpful to have an extra set of hands to help with the wardrobe.  I enjoyed getting to know Sarah a little better, and get her some beautiful senior photos.  She is such a fun and sweet girl!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:

The next sneak peek on the blog is a little different – an ENGAGEMENT session!!  (Yes, on occasion, I photograph something other than seniors 😉 ). It was so much fun, and they are such a gorgeous couple (I mean, come on, how stunning are they both?!)!  I have been photographing this bride-to-be for many years now.  Starting with family photos with her and her siblings, and then her senior photos, and now the next step – engagement photos!  I think it is amazing to be able to follow a family thru milestones like this.

I am SO excited to welcome in the new class of seniors!  Welcome to the class of 2019!  I have a feeling this is going to be such a fun summer, meeting and photographing all of the new seniors.  I already have lots of seniors on my calendar for June and July and even a couple for August.  Summer IS hot, but it is the prime time to get senior photos taken.  (And don’t worry, I shoot early morning, so we aren’t really too affected by the heat.) The reason it is the prime time to get them taken, is this is when you have the most open and flexible schedule.  I can shoot any day of the week, compared to when school starts, where we are limited to just weekends.  Once school starts, so does all of the craziness of senior year!  Classes, homework, extra curriculars, SAT, ACT, etc.  It may not feel like it now, but senior year FLIES by.  If you put it off too long, then it just becomes something you are trying to work in and get done, instead of letting it be a fun and relaxing experience!  Bottom line, the earlier you can get your senior photos done, the better!  So, if you haven’t yet chosen your senior photographer, I hope you consider me.  I will not only get you beautiful photos to mark this important milestone in your life, but we will have a great time doing it!  If you want to talk to me more about photo session, or if you are ready to get on my calendar, please feel free to contact me!  jpsearcyphotography@gmail.com, or message me on any of my social media pages (I’m JPSearcy everywhere 😉 ).

Now, onto my very first senior of the year – Faith!  She is such a sweet girl.  I met her a few years ago when her older sister came to me for her senior photos.  She wanted hers to be different than her sister’s, so she picked out two locations that her sister didn’t.  We went to Stetson (my first time there!) and Kraft Azalea.  Both very beautiful spots!  And I could tell early on in our shoot that we were going to have a fun time.  She was full of laughs, especially when her sister was helping out.  Her mom and sister kept themselves entertained with control of my snapchat for the shoot.  And I learned that she has a fear of heights!  Doesn’t matter if it is just a couple of feet off the ground ;).  So, we kept her pretty close to the ground for the entire shoot.  I got lots of great laughing photos of her, and lots of just plain beautiful photos of her. (both smiling and not smiling).  I can’t wait to show her all of them.  But for now, h

Almost done with the class of 2018, but not quite yet!  I had a great time meeting Jacob and his mom for his senior session at Kraft Azalea.  Our first scheduled shoot date got rained out, but this day was pretty darn close to perfect weather!  If it looks like it is going to rain, or if it looks like it won’t be great out for photos, I am happy to reschedule.  I rather have a day that I know you are going to love!  We had a good day to shoot, and a very nice guy to photograph!  In addition to the regular photos, Jacob also wanted to get some photos with the jeep that he and his dad rebuilt.  I love it when the seniors want to incorporate something special to them!

Here are a few sneak peeks from his shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is Julia!  We had a great time at her deluxe (two location) session at Rollins and Kraft Azalea.  Joining her was her mom, AND her pup!  I love when seniors bring their puppies with them.  As long as someone is there to take care of the dog, and you understand that dogs can be worse to pose than toddlers! Haha!  Dad was able to swing by and pick up the pup and then the focus could go back to Julia 😉  She is gorgeous, and a total sweetheart.  Not to mention, a natural in front of the camera.  All made for a great shoot!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from each of our locations:

Next senior up on the blog is Joshua!  He, like most of the senior guys I photograph, wasn’t exactly thrilled about having a shoot.  But he was a great sport, and I think, ended up having a good time!  His mom and girlfriend came with him to help out.  Girlfriends are always invited to come along with the guys for their shoot.  No one can get smiles out of the guys like their girlfriends ;).  I know that the guys will be happy they have these photographs (the moms sure will be!)  Our shoot was at Kraft Azalea in Winter Park.  I’m happy to report, it did just fine in the storm.  Yes, there were a few downed trees, but nothing I couldn’t work with.  In fact, we used on of those downed trees in the shoot!

If you haven’t gotten your senior photos (non-yearbook ones, I mean), I am almost booked for the rest of the fall!  So, even if you don’t know the exact details, call or email me to at least lock down your date.

Now onto sneak peeks!
