The next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Katelyn! I had so much fun getting to know her on our deluxe (two location) session. Since one of her locations was the beach, we had to do two different days. Beach shoots are at sunrise, and after those shoots, there is no way to go to another location. We are windblown and sandy! So to get the best possible photos, we do them on two separate days. But this works out great, because I feel like I get to spend even more time with the senior, and I get to know them even better. And Katelyn is such an amazing girl! I loved my time with her. We had a session at Dickson Azalea (where we could climb trees and be in “magical meadows”, and then the beach where it was so windy we were getting knocked over by waves. But she was such a trooper, and we got some beautiful photos for her!
Here are a couple of sneak peeks from each of our locations:
Next senior up on the blog is Colton! We had a great time on our shoot. I photographed his sister a few years ago for her senior photos, so I was super excited to meet her brother. He brought his girlfriend and his mom to help out on the shoot. We had our shoot at Rollins (one of my favorite locations!). He was so relaxed and natural in front of the camera (even though I made him wake up super early on a weekend for our shoot)! We got lots of amazing photos, and I can’t wait to show them all. But for now, just a little sneak peek!
Next senior up on the blog is beautiful Erin! I met Erin since she was a little kindergartener, so it is a trip seeing her all grown up now. So gorgeous, and so natural in front of the camera! She just fell into her poses, and needed very little direction. We had a great time on her deluxe (2 location) session. The two locations she chose were the beach and Rollins. Two great choices! Our beach morning was overcast, but still beautiful. And at least the rain held off until the very end of our shoot. The next morning at Rollins was picture perfect. We have so many amazing photos, it was difficult to pick just a few to share for the sneak peeks (but of course I did!).
Here are some sneak peeks from our shoots:
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 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 😉 ).
Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:
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.

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!
Next 2019 senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Fariha! We had so much fun exploring and photographing around Rollins. She is so sweet, and so pretty (and that hair!!!), of course we got lots of beautiful senior photos for her! Rollins is one of my most favorite places to shoot. There are great backgrounds for everyone there! So, Fariha made a great choice in her location.
Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:
This was a shoot for one of my models, and it was so much fun! For her bonus mini shoot, she wanted something a little different. So, we tried a night shoot! I’ve done night shoots before, and they are usually downtown (because of all the lights on the skyline), but the stars were just not aligning for us to shoot downtown. So instead, we went to one of my more popular locations, Park Ave, but at night! This was a lot different for me, since I am usually there bright and early, with no one around. For this shoot, it was on a Friday evening, so of course, there were tons of people around. Not the most convenient to shoot, but I think we did pretty well! And even though this dancer told me that she wasn’t going to do any dance photos this shoot, we ended up doing a couple ;). I can’t help it! I love to shoot dancers! And she was so awesome, she was happy to oblige.
Here are a couple of sneak peeks from our fun night shoot. I usually prefer color, but for the dance ones, I am more drawn to it in black and white! I will leave it up to her to see which way she prefers it:
These beautiful girls have been dominating my blog recently! They have had several shoots during their senior year, but this one *may* have been their favorite. SOFTBALL!! They both play ball for Oviedo, and will continue in college, so of course, we are going to want to do some sports photos for them!
Here are a couple of sneak peeks for each of them:
Another beautiful sunrise beach shoot for three beautiful seniors! These three girls were also in my model program this year, and one of their bonus shoots that they wanted was the beach! We had multiple reschedules including one recently when we made it all the way out to the beach only to find it so dark and foggy, we had to turn around and pick another date. 99% of the time, I can be able to say if we can shoot the day before, just by checking the weather forecast. Saves us all from waking up super early and driving an hour to get to the beach! But on a few rare cases, we get out there and it just isn’t very nice to shoot. So, we just suck it up and pick a new date! Thankfully, this rescheduled date gave us a beautiful morning to shoot. Beautiful sunrise, nice temperatures (well, the water was pretty cold, but the air felt great). Despite the cold water, one of the girls did decide to get in the water at the end. Hey, whatever it takes for the photo, right?!
Here are a couple of sneak peeks for each of the girls:
