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!

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.

The next sneak peek on the blog is a little different – an ENGAGEMENT session!! (Yes, on occasion, I photograph something other than seniors 😉 ). It was so much fun, and they are such a gorgeous couple (I mean, come on, how stunning are they both?!)! I have been photographing this bride-to-be for many years now. Starting with family photos with her and her siblings, and then her senior photos, and now the next step – engagement photos! I think it is amazing to be able to follow a family thru milestones like this.
Here are a few sneak peeks from their shoot:
I am SO excited to welcome in the new class of seniors! Welcome to the class of 2019! I have a feeling this is going to be such a fun summer, meeting and photographing all of the new seniors. I already have lots of seniors on my calendar for June and July and even a couple for August. Summer IS hot, but it is the prime time to get senior photos taken. (And don’t worry, I shoot early morning, so we aren’t really too affected by the heat.) The reason it is the prime time to get them taken, is this is when you have the most open and flexible schedule. I can shoot any day of the week, compared to when school starts, where we are limited to just weekends. Once school starts, so does all of the craziness of senior year! Classes, homework, extra curriculars, SAT, ACT, etc. It may not feel like it now, but senior year FLIES by. If you put it off too long, then it just becomes something you are trying to work in and get done, instead of letting it be a fun and relaxing experience! Bottom line, the earlier you can get your senior photos done, the better! So, if you haven’t yet chosen your senior photographer, I hope you consider me. I will not only get you beautiful photos to mark this important milestone in your life, but we will have a great time doing it! If you want to talk to me more about photo session, or if you are ready to get on my calendar, please feel free to contact me! email@example.com, or message me on any of my social media pages (I’m JPSearcy everywhere 😉 ).
Now, onto my very first senior of the year – Faith! She is such a sweet girl. I met her a few years ago when her older sister came to me for her senior photos. She wanted hers to be different than her sister’s, so she picked out two locations that her sister didn’t. We went to Stetson (my first time there!) and Kraft Azalea. Both very beautiful spots! And I could tell early on in our shoot that we were going to have a fun time. She was full of laughs, especially when her sister was helping out. Her mom and sister kept themselves entertained with control of my snapchat for the shoot. And I learned that she has a fear of heights! Doesn’t matter if it is just a couple of feet off the ground ;). So, we kept her pretty close to the ground for the entire shoot. I got lots of great laughing photos of her, and lots of just plain beautiful photos of her. (both smiling and not smiling). I can’t wait to show her all of them. But for now, h

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:
Almost done with the class of 2018, but not quite yet! I had a great time meeting Jacob and his mom for his senior session at Kraft Azalea. Our first scheduled shoot date got rained out, but this day was pretty darn close to perfect weather! If it looks like it is going to rain, or if it looks like it won’t be great out for photos, I am happy to reschedule. I rather have a day that I know you are going to love! We had a good day to shoot, and a very nice guy to photograph! In addition to the regular photos, Jacob also wanted to get some photos with the jeep that he and his dad rebuilt. I love it when the seniors want to incorporate something special to them!
Here are a few sneak peeks from his shoot:
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:
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 JJ! Nope, not done with seniors yet! Time is winding down for the class of 2018, so if you are still needing senior photos, you will want to get on my calendar soon. But back to THIS session ~ it was JJ and his mom at Rollins. We had such a good time, and he is such a great guy! His mom would do anything to get a good, natural smile out of him. So basically, I was entertained as well. Haha! He was a great sport, and I kept my promise of keeping his shoot under an hour. With guys, I work faster. Girls? They tend to want me to drag it out longer 😉
