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 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!
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:
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.
Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot:
Announcing the annual senior sale! Now, in the past, this sale was only 2 days long. This year, I’m changing things up a little, and making things a little less stressful. This year, the senior sale is going to run from May 12 – May 30. This is the ONE sale that I run all year, so you don’t want to miss out! This year, the earlier in the summer that you have your shoot, the more you will save! Don’t worry, all of my summer shoots are held early morning, so it won’t be too hot or sweaty for our shoot 😉 Summer really is the best time of year to do these shoots. Once school starts, there are just so much many things scheduled, and we can only shoot on the weekends. It is really best to get these done early and enjoy a fun session to kick off your senior year!
-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in June, and the session fee is only $75 ($125 for deluxe). In addition, you will receive 3 complimentary gift prints with your order (a gift print is your choice of an 8×10 or smaller)!
-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in July, and the session fee is only $100 ($150 for deluxe), and receive 2 complimentary gift prints with your order.
-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in August, and the session fee is only $125 ($200 for deluxe), and receive 1 complimentary gift print with your order.
-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in September, and the session fee is only $150 ($250 for deluxe).
The details – this sale is for senior sessions only. If you call and book your senior photo session during the sale, you will receive a discounted session fee + free gift prints with your order. Session fees must be paid at time of booking, and are non-refundable (in case of weather issues, I will reschedule your date with no additional session fee). All sessions are done on location (of your choice). Regular senior session is one location, Deluxe senior session is two locations (in the same day). I only take one senior client per day, so when that date is filled, it is not available for another client. So, if you know you want JPSearcy to photograph you for your senior photos, you will want to call and pick your date early! Simple as that!
As always. Session fees are for the session time and editing only, and do not include any prints or digital files. Print packages are ordered at our viewing/ordering appointment approximately 3 weeks after our shoot. I have 6 different flexible packages ranging from $240-$1890. Minimum order for regular sessions is $240, for deluxe (2 location) sessions is $500.
*Regular pricing session fee is $200 for a regular senior session, $300 for a deluxe senior session.
Please pass the info on to your parents, so they are kept in the loop, and know all about the sale! And please pass along to all of your friends and classmates, we don’t want anyone to miss out on this. Especially since this sale is not limited per school. Whoever calls to book during the sale, gets the discounted pricing!
Still have questions? Don’t hesitate to reach out to me and ask! Otherwise, I look forward to booking your summer session very soon. We will have fun at our shoot AND get beautiful photos to mark this important milestone in your life!
It is that time of year again! Time to start working on the graduation announcements. If you had a shoot with me this year, you probably saw the graduation announcements that I offer. I told you that I don’t take orders for them until after January, remember? Well, it’s time! Don’t worry, this design appointment won’t take nearly as long as your first viewing/ordering appointment. You have already seen your photos, you know which are your favs, so this next part is pretty quick and painless. In the past, they have taken about 15 minutes. If you are interested in making an announcement appointment, send me a quick email letting me know when is best for you to come by.
If you have NOT had a shoot with me yet, it isn’t too late! We still have time to have a great session, get beautiful portraits, and get your custom graduation announcements back. All before graduation! While it isn’t too late now, it will be too late soon. So you don’t want to wait too much longer to get on my calendar. This last semester flies by, and towards the end of the semester, you and your family will be busy with graduation plans and parties. Trust me! If you would like to talk to me about a shoot, please email me ~ email@example.com or call/text me 407-977-6296.
This isn’t a typical sneak peek post, sorry about that! This is more of a “what’s up and coming” info post!
So, if you have been following me for a while, you know that every year applications go up to select my next class of senior reps. I have LOVED each and every one of my reps. I love working with them all year, and I love keeping in touch with them after graduation. They have been a great resource in helping me spread the word to their friends about JPSearcy. But it seems like lots of other photographers have started using reps as well. So, I guess it is time to shake things up a bit! I don’t like doing what everyone else is doing ;).
I am working on a plan to put the focus completely on the senior, and giving them a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. This will be open to all upcoming seniors (class of 2019), and I won’t be limiting how many from each school. No applications or anything like that. Just giving everyone the opportunity for the Model Experience! It will include multiple sessions through out the year. Of course, I will still offer beautiful photos as a part of regular senior sessions. This is just something a bit more! I’m still finalizing the details, and will be sending it all out to whoever is interested. Do you want to be a part of the very first JPSearcy Model Experience team? Just take a second and fill out the short form with your contact info, and you will be the first one to hear the details! And feel free to pass it along to your friends who would totally be up for an over-the-top senior model experience!
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 Olivia! She is such a sweetheart, and we had such a great time on our shoot. We had our shoot at Casa Feliz. This is one of my past favorite locations. But due to photography restrictions, I don’t have the opportunity to shoot there very often anymore. It has to be scheduled and coordinated with Casa, so there aren’t many available times. BUT when we DO get to shoot there, I just love it! Olivia had the perfect clothes to go with the location, and just looked beautiful!
School has started!! So, if you have not yet gotten on my calendar, and you want to, please contact me ASAP and we will talk! Weekend dates are very limited, so you want to get on the calendar soon!
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 do have some open dates left for the fall. If you have not yet gotten on my calendar, let me know so I can take care of that for you. All of my shoots are first thing in the morning (until it cools down some!), 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 Alison and her mom. She is so sweet and so beautiful and we had a great time on our shoot! The location she chose was Rollins College.
