Next senior up on the blog is beautiful Hailey (wait until you see her eyes!!  Seriously stunning)!  Yet another repeat family coming back.  Love that I have so many siblings coming back to me this year!  This one was extra special, because even though they moved, they still made the trip to have me do her senior photos.  The location she chose was Rollins, a beautiful spot with lots of options.  She was so sweet and having so much fun, she found another outfit just to make the shoot just a little longer.  I would think that meant she was having a good time.

Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog is beautiful Allie!  Her family is another one that I have worked with in the past, for both her big sister’s senior photos AND for family photos.  So, I already knew we would have a great session ;). Allie started off the shoot with a good attitude, but said she was just doing this for her mom.  However, after we got started, she started having fun!  And she should, because she was so photogenic, and had such a gorgeous serious face!

Here are some of her sneak peeks:

Next senior up on the blog is AJ!  I had such a great time meeting and photographing him at Rollins.  I photographed his sister a few years ago, so I was excited when his mom called to set up AJ’s shoot.  (I love it when families are so happy with their experience, they come back to me!). Typically when moms book their guys for their senior session, they (the guys) want me to just get this over with as quick and painlessly as possible.  But then they realize it isn’t nearly as bad as getting their yearbook photos, and they relax and even have a little fun.  AJ was so great, and just wanted to have good photos, so I didn’t need to rush at all.

Next senior up on the blog is the gorgeous Francesca!  We had such a great time on our shoot at Rollins and Dickson Azalea.  Those two locations give a nice variety of backgrounds for us to work with.  She was such a natural in front of the camera, makes my job easy!  She seemed to have both the smiles AND serious faces nailed (which isn’t easy to do, especially in summer heat!).

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Bailey!  She is so super sweet and so smiley!  No matter where we were, or what I had her do, she had such a great big smile on her face.  I’ll take that as she was having a good time ;).

Bailey brought her mom with us to her shoot at Rollins.  She is actually the 3rd sibling in her family to come to me for her senior photos.  I love that her family was so happy with their experience, that they want to continue it for each of their kids.  And I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and photographing each one of them.  Very nice family!  Now, on to her sneak peeks!

Back from my relaxing vacation, and now it is time to get back to some fun senior sessions!  Next senior up is the beautiful Maura!  Her entourage included mom, younger sister, and friend (who was a past JPSearcy senior too!).  She chose Rollins as her location.  We had a lot of laughs at our shoot.  Maura is a funny, lighthearted girl.  She didn’t even mind when her mom suggested her doing something different, like running thru the sprinklers.  I can honestly say, I have never had a senior want to run in the sprinklers before!  So when we were done, she happily ran and leaped in the water.  We ended up only having about 2 minutes and then the sprinklers turned off.  Did get a couple of really cute shots in that short time though!

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 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.

Thought I was done with the class of 2018, but I am happy to say, I have just one more senior!  She was such a delightful one to end the school year with!  She is so beautiful and so sweet, not to mention, photogenic!  Delaney and her mom chose two great locations – Rollins and Dickson Azalea.  And thankfully, with all of the rain we have had in the past couple of weeks, we totally lucked out and had a very nice morning to shoot.

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

I had a great time meeting this family.  I already had met half of them, because the oldest son had his senior photos taken a few months ago!  I love when families realize the importance of getting family photos, especially after the kids are little.  Why is it that we stop getting family photos when the kids get older?  There is never a perfect time to do a family session, but before college sounds pretty close to the perfect time to me!

Here are a few sneak peeks from their session:
