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:

School year has started!  And I am happy to share the next senior for the class of 2020, Elizabeth!  We had a great time on her deluxe (2 location) session.  Such a sweet, laid back beautiful girl, who was so much fun to photograph.  The two locations that she chose were Park Ave and Rollins.  Two great locations, and very close together so it minimized our travel time.  And even though it was really hot out, we started early enough, so it was totally bearable!  Yes, it may stink having to wake up early on a day off, but it is really worth it, when we aren’t sweating like crazy 😉 .  So, if you have been putting off scheduling your senior session until it cools off, remember, we are in Florida.  It doesn’t really cool off!  BUT, I have ways to make sure you still look great and refreshed for your senior photos.  So, don’t put it off any longer!  Contact me to get your date scheduled!

Now, back to Elizabeth!  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:

Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Haley!  She brought mom and a good friend along with her to play the role of assistant/guest snap chatter for the day ;).  She is such a sweet girl who had really been looking forward to her shoot!  We had so much fun!  The two locations that she chose were Park Ave and Dickson Azalea.  Two great locations.  Haley learned quickly that it is tough work being a gorgeous model!  The getting up before dawn/squatting/posing/outfit changing/smiling even though you are getting hot, can really be tough!  She was a trooper though, and looked beautiful the whole way thru the shoot.  I can’t wait for her to see all of the photos, but for now, just a little sneak peek!

Here are a few shots from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is the beautiful Nikki!  I had so much fun photographing and getting to know Nikki a little better.  We had a lot of laughs at both of her locations – Park Ave and Rollins.  In fact, it was difficult for her to have any serious looks because of all of the laughs.  I love that she was able to relax and have fun on her shoot.  At the end of the shoot, she wanted fountain photos.  I always tell my seniors, there is no graceful way to get up there (and that is why they should wear sliders under skirts 😉 ).  Well, Nikki was the FIRST one ever to get up there gracefully!  One shot and done!  Usually takes several tries, and sometimes mom will need to get in there and help boost.  She caught me totally off guard when she did it on the first try, and did it gracefully!  She made up for it though, and did the most un-graceful dismount getting down.  She and her mom were cracking up at that one!

Here are a few sneak peeks from her shoot:

The next senior up on the blog, is the gorgeous Sarah!  We had such a great time on her shoot with her friend and her mom.  She was not only stunning with all of that red hair, but she was super sweet and a lot of fun to photograph!  The two locations she chose were Park Ave and Dickson Azalea.  First up was Park Ave and then onto Dickson, but then we had to go back to do the famous fountain photos!  Once you get wet, there is no going back, so we save those for the very end of the shoot.  I am not sure if they are keeping the fountain though, and that makes me a little sad.  There is construction all around it now, and they have taken some of the areas around the fountain down.  It has been so many fun years photographing seniors at that fountain, so I hope they keep it where it is!

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

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!!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Carolina!  We had a great shoot out on Park Ave in Winter Park with her, her mom, and her sister.  The tables had turned!  Carolina joined her older sisters her “assistant” on her senior shoot with me a couple years ago, and now it was her turn!  She is such a sweetheart, and such a natural in front of the camera.  Made for a great shoot!

Here are a few sneak peeks from Carolina’s session:

Next senior up on the blog is Allie!  Allie, her mom, and I had a great time on our shoot on Park Ave in Winter Park.  She was so sweet, and such a natural in front of the camera. We explored all around Park Ave, and ended our session at her old school, St Margaret Mary.  Had to get a few shots there, of course 😉

If you haven’t gotten your (non-yearbook) senior photos taken yet, whatcha waiting for?! Limited fall dates remain, so call or message me to get on my calendar.  I’d love to talk about what you want out of your senior photo session!

Back to Allie now!  Here are a few sneak peeks from her session:

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 Brianna and her entourage . Not only did she bring mom with her, but she also brought two friends to help.  They were all great, helping her out with each one of her outfits.  I think she had more outfits for one location than any other senior before her, so she needed all the help she could get 😉 !  She is so beautiful and we had so much fun!  The location she chose was Park Ave in Winter Park.
