Another senior model experience at Disney!  The perks of being a JPSearcy model include getting to go to other places outside the normal locations for a fun shoot.  (All of my shoots are fun, btw ;). It is just that those participating in the model program get to shoot at many different places throughout their senior year, and some of those can be out of the box type locations.  Like Magic Kingdom!).  Sarah is a Disney fanatic, and was so excited for her shoot at Magic Kingdom.  She had in mind that she wanted to do a shoot with her favorite Disney treats!  Hey, whatever she wants, she will get!  We had a great morning exploring (and eating) our way through the park.

I will be taking sign ups for the class of 2020 seniors very soon!  So, if having multiple senior shoots throughout your senior year, sounds like something you would like to do, please follow me on social media (I’m jpsearcy everywhere), so you can be kept in the loop when I am putting together my next class of seniors for the “Model Experience”!

Now, if you are class of 2019, there is still time for the regular senior session!  Just contact me to get on my calendar!  Or if you are class of 2020, but only are going to want one shoot, that is perfectly fine too!  I will be taking regular clients starting in May.  Follow me and stay tuned!!

Back to Sarah, here are a couple of sneak peeks from our Disney shoot:

A new program for seniors that I introduced this year, was called the “Model Experience”.  This was to take the place of my reps.  Now, I loved having reps, mostly because I got to work with them their entire senior year.  They had the opportunity to earn bonus photo shoots.  Well, the NEW program, was you pay for whichever level of “Model Experience” you wanted (based on how many bonus shoots you wanted).  Everyone has a main shoot in the summer, and then the bonus shoots are during the fall/winter.  They can have one bonus shoot or two bonus shoots.  And what the bonus shoots are, is completely up to them!  I ask what they want to do, and we go do it!  Most of the bonus shoots will be with one or two other models, and that just adds to the fun.  So far, the program is working great, so I do expect to do it again for the class of 2020, so stay tuned, if this sounds like something you (or your senior) would want to do next year!  Sign ups will be in the next couple of months!

The next bonus shoot we did was out at Magic Kingdom!  I have two girls who are in the model program this year, that are Disney fanatics!  So, why not try a shoot at Disney?!  Unfortunately, the schedules wouldn’t align for them to both go the same day.  So, no problem, we will go two different days!  Faith brought her sister along (who is a past senior client of mine AND a future WEDDING client of mine too!).  We had so much fun playing around in the park.  They even got me on the teacups (NOT my favorite ride, because it makes me sick).  But anything they want, and anything for a fun photo!  Here are a couple of sneak peeks of my model Faith (and a bonus one with her and her sister):

The first bonus shoot we did was out at Sledd’s Farm in Mims.  The girls wanted sunflowers!  Well, unfortunately, the crop wasn’t great this year for sunflowers, BUT we did find some, AND their maze was full of yellow sun hemp, so I think we totally got the look they were going for!  Here are a couple of sneak peeks of two of my models:

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Cassidy!  I had such a great time meeting her and her mom for her senior shoot out at Kraft Azalea in Winter Park.  Cassidy is such a natural beauty, I loved having her in front of my lens.  She told me she loves photography as well.  Now I know, photographers typically like being on the OTHER side of the camera, but she did so great being the subject for the day.  She relaxed and had fun, so we could get some great photos of her to help mark this milestone!

Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot:

Next senior up on the blog, is beautiful Lauren!  Not only is she stunning, but she is super sweet, and I had so much fun photographing her.  She and her mom decided on a deluxe (two location) session for her senior photo shoot.  She knew she wanted Rollins, but wasn’t sure about the other.  Mom wanted something with blue walls, so I thought of a location that I don’t use very often anymore (but it IS beautiful!) – Maitland Art Center.  They have that fantastic blue mosaic wall!  The reason I don’t use that one very often anymore, is because of the hours that they are open.  It is just pretty much middle of the day, which is pretty hot during the summer time.  And during the school year, they often have weddings going on during the weekends.  So logistically, it is a difficult location to schedule.  But for Lauren’s shoot, all the stars were aligned, and we were able to shoot there!

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

 

Now, if you (or your senior), haven’t had your senior photos done yet, there is still time! And no, I’m not talking about the boring yearbook ones, I’m talking about going out on location and having FUN and getting gorgeous photos that you will WANT to have all over your house and to send to relatives.  Right now, the weather is cooling off a little, so it is such a nice time for a session!  Trust me, senior year goes by so quickly.  You don’t want to wait too long, and miss out on getting beautiful, fun, timeless photos taken for this important milestone in their lives.  Email me (jpsearcyphotography@gmail.com) and we can talk about you want for your shoot!

Next senior up on the blog, is the beautiful Mackenzie!  We had such a fun time on our shoot at Rollins.  Yes, I shoot at Rollins often, and that is because it is such a perfect session location!  The lighting is good there, and there are some great backdrops.  Whenever someone asks for a recommendation on where to shoot, this spot is at the top of my list.  And even though it is a popular location, it feels like we have the entire location to ourselves (even when there are other shoots going on).  Enough about the location, now onto Mackenzie!  Not only is she beautiful, but she was so sweet and a lot of fun too!  She brought her mom along as her personal assistant, and mom did a great job.  Both with Mackenzie’s outfits/accessories AND with being my “guest snapchatter” for the day.  (For those who don’t follow me, add me on Snapchat, and you will see behind the scenes of each shoot).

Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:

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!

Next senior up on the blog, is beautiful Sarah!  We had such a fun time on our deluxe (two location) shoot.  She bought her big sister along with her to act as her assistant (who is also a former senior of mine 😉 ).  The three of us started her session at Dickson Azalea, and then finished it up doing something totally different.  “Glam golf”.  She is a very talented golfer, and we will be doing another sports session for her later in the school year.  But those will be all action shots.  This was to get some pretty and fun golf photos for her!  At the golf course, they were so sweet to us.  After seeing Sarah in a full length gown, they offered us some golf carts to make things a little easier.  Definitely made it easier than walking a couple of holes in heels!

Now that the school year has officially started everywhere, if you haven’t booked YOUR senior photo session yet, what are you waiting for?!  Have an idea of what you want for your session? Let me know, and I’m happy to make that happen for you.  Your senior photos should be all about YOU and what you want!

Now back to Sarah!  Here are some sneak peeks from our session:

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.

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:
