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:

The next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Kaylee!  She brought a friend and her mom with her to act as her assistants during her shoot.  The 4 of us had such a good time!  The first location she chose was one I hadn’t been to before.  She wanted an overgrown grassy field (a common request).  I told her that I didn’t have one, but if she could find one, I’m all over it!  Well, she found one.  However, I don’t know that we were totally prepared for all of the muck and mud in that was there.  If I go there again, rain/mud boots will be a necessity!  But that all led to the experience of the morning ;). The second location she chose, I know like the back of my hand.  Rollins!  Rollins is my most requested location, and for good reason.  Lots of beautiful spots to take photos.

Squeezing in one last family before the holidays!  And what a fun shoot this was!  Yes, I was nervous when I heard they wanted two horses and a dog in the family photo, I will admit that.  But honestly, it couldn’t have gone smoother!  We had extra hands (and an awesome sounds app) to help the horses look, and the dog could have been a model!  He had no problem staying still and looking very handsome for the photos.  So, animals all good, check!  Now to the family.  All gorgeous and happy, check!  End result, a fantastic family photo with the ENTIRE family looking perfect! I had a great time meeting and working with this lovely family.  A GREAT way to end shoots before Christmas!

Here are a few sneak peeks from their shoot:

It isn’t often that I get called for a newborn session, but boy do I love them when I do!  This sweet little girl was no exception.  So gorgeous, so sweet, and so brand new!  For newborn sessions, it is best to get them to me before they turn 2 weeks old.  Typically then they are still pretty sleepy.  This little girl was supposed to be sleepy, but she showed who was in charge.  She wanted to be awake and see everything going on!  That’s ok, I’m patient, I’ll wait.  So, we got some awake photos, and some sweet sleepy photos.  All in all, it was a great shoot!

School is out for the summer, 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!!  Roman was not thrilled about having a photo session, but he was a great sport and was doing it for his mom.  Now, let me tell you, most guys are not excited about photo shoots.  BUT, I do try to make it as painless as possible for the guys and still have lots of great photos that mom will love.  And I do think that every senior guy that has had a shoot with me, has told me at the end that it wasn’t nearly as bad as they thought it would be.  So that is something!

Next senior up on the blog is Tori!  We had a little trouble with the timing of her shoot, because she wanted to go to the beach at the same time Hurricane Matthew decided to visit!  Not the best time for a beach shoot ;).  So, we rescheduled, and had a perfect day to shoot.  Beautiful sunrise, beautiful weather, and a beautiful senior to photograph!

Next senior up on the blog is Seth!  I had a great time meeting him and his parents at his session at Rollins.  Like most of the guys I shoot, it wasn’t his idea to have the session, but he was a great sport about it.  And I loved that dad had a special request – one photo that had a palm tree in it.  They aren’t from Florida, and I guess that is something we native Floridians take for granted!  I’m happy to do any special requests any of my clients have in mind.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot (including a palm tree 😉 ):

Next senior up on the blog is Preston!  I had a great time meeting him and his momma for his shoot.  Photos aren’t always tops on a guy’s list of things they want to wake up early and do on a weekend ;), but Preston was a great sport.  He was nice as can be!

Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Brianna! We had a great time at Rollins for her senior shoot.  She is such a sweet girl, I had a great time getting to know her.  Rollins certainly has been popular this year!  And with good reason.  It has many beautiful, neutral backdrops there.  Good for ALL senior sessions!

Next senior up on the blog is Maddie!  We (Maddie, her brother, and her parents) all had such a good day together.  She and her brother were both having their senior photos taken, and both were having a deluxe (two location) session.  So we got to spend a lot of time together!  (I have a sneaking suspicion that it was her idea for two locations, and not her brother’s 😉 )  But I’m so glad she was able to convince him!   We started off the morning at Rollins, and then met back up in the evening downtown for some night photos at Church Street.  They were both great kids and I enjoyed getting the chance to know and photograph them.

Here are Maddie’s sneak peeks from both locations:
