Next senior up on the blog is another guy!  I’m loving having the opportunity to meet and photograph more senior guys this year.  Hayden was great, and we had a fun time on our shoot. He was all smiles all shoot!  I met his mom and older sister a couple of years ago for her senior photos, so I knew what a great family I was going to be working with.

Now, for all the 2020 seniors that have been putting off getting their senior photos!  It’s time to get on my calendar!  My calendar is now open for fall dates.  We can shoot where ever you would like, and if you have any special requests or ideas, let me know so I can make it happen for you!

Back to Hayden 😉 here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot at Rollins:

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:

The next two seniors up on my blog are friends, so they wanted to do their sessions at the same time.  No problem!  I’m happy to do that for seniors who want it.  You BOTH get your own session and your own gallery, I’m just doing the shoot at the same time.  And as a little bonus, I’ll get a few photos of you and your friend together (if that is what you want).

We had a great time on our shoot at Rollins.  Both guys were a lot of fun and I got lots of great photos of them.  AND we got to play with a little fire!  On some shoots, when you want something a little different for your sports photos, I can bring fire.  YES it is real, and YES it is totally safe.  Your senior photos are about YOU, so if you know what you want, tell me, and I’ll do what I can to make it happen!

The next senior up on the blog, is a super sweet, beautiful girl!  Cierra and her mom chose Rollins as the location for her shoot.  We had so much fun together!  She told me at the start that this was something she was doing for her mom.  But it wasn’t long into our session that she started relaxing and having fun.  I tell you, she was a natural in front of the camera!  And all smiles!  I have so many beautiful photos of her from our shoot, it was hard to pick just a few for her sneak peeks.  I can’t wait for her and mom to see ALL of them.  But for now, sneak peeks will have to do 😉

Next senior up on the boy is Stephan!  I am so excited to have more guys on my calendar this summer!  I usually get a couple every year, but this year is off to a great start with guys booking their shoots too.  Note to the senior guys, I promise, I will make this as painless as possible for you.  No crazy posing, no 3 hour sessions.  Just relaxed, and having somewhat of a good time ;), and getting you lots of great photos.  Not to mention, I’m sure you will score some points with mom!  She might even take you out to breakfast after the shoot 😉

Stephan was great.  Such a nice guy.  Totally relaxed and laid back for his shoot.  He didn’t want a location with a lot of people around, so we chose Kraft Azalea.  It was perfect for him.  Lots of nature, not a lot of people, and not a big spread out location.  I think he even had a little bit of fun 😉

It’s time!  Time for the next senior class!  And the very first senior up on the blog is MY senior.  Yep, my “baby” is a senior ((sniff, sniff)).  I asked him what he wanted for his senior photo session, and he wanted to go downtown at night.  So he will get two shoots (perks of being a photographer’s kid 😉 ), and the second one will be next week during the day.  I didn’t want to press my luck and try two locations with him in one day. I love photographing my boys (and I love it when they humor me and let me).

I am SO excited for the next senior class!  I’m excited because I already have several booked for this summer!  I still have some availability and one more day of the sale, so make sure to message me/email me/call me to get YOUR session on the calendar!

Here are some sneak peeks from our evening downtown:

Announcing the annual senior sale for the class of 2020!  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 15 – May 31.  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 ;). In addition to the reduced session fee, anyone booking during the sale will also receive 2 complimentary gift prints with order (a gift print is your choice of an 8×10 or smaller – an $80 value!).

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in June, and the session fee is only $100 ($150 for deluxe).  In addition, you will receive 5 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in July, and the session fee is only $125 ($175 for deluxe), you will receive 4 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in August, and the session fee is only $150 ($200 for deluxe), you will receive 3 complimentary social media images with your order.

-Book and pay for a shoot to take place in September, and the session fee is only $175 ($225 for deluxe).  you will receive 2 complimentary social media images with your order.

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 + 2 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.

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!

Another beautiful sunrise beach shoot for three beautiful seniors!  These three girls were also in my model program this year, and one of their bonus shoots that they wanted was the beach!  We had multiple reschedules including one recently when we made it all the way out to the beach only to find it so dark and foggy, we had to turn around and pick another date.  99% of the time, I can be able to say if we can shoot the day before, just by checking the weather forecast.  Saves us all from waking up super early and driving an hour to get to the beach!  But on a few rare cases, we get out there and it just isn’t very nice to shoot.  So, we just suck it up and pick a new date!  Thankfully, this rescheduled date gave us a beautiful morning to shoot.  Beautiful sunrise, nice temperatures (well, the water was pretty cold, but the air felt great).  Despite the cold water, one of the girls did decide to get in the water at the end.  Hey, whatever it takes for the photo, right?!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks for each of the girls:

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 February, 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 ~ jpsearcyphotography@gmail.com or call/text me 407-977-6296.
