Cameron | JSP Senior Model | Class of 2023

I love this time of year, not only because everything is turning a tender green, and the trees are budding with new life, but also because I get to start working with the new JSP Senior Models for the next school year.  The first photo shoot is always an extra special one because we are getting to know each other.  They are learning to trust me with giving them direction and I am learning all their expressions. I have been saving this bicycle for a while now, for just the right opportunity and just the right location.  Nailed it on both!  Cameron made these bicycle images something really special and filled up my creative bucket in a BIG way!  Can't wait to keep creating magic with this girl throughout the next school year!😁

Camryn | Class of 2022 | Janice Sanford Photography

Ok, I realize that every time I've blogged one of Camryn's Senior Model sessions that I've said 'it's my favorite one'. But for real this time...THIS IS MY FAVORITE ONE!!😍 She just keeps getting better and better, and WOW!! is her star shining bright! Just a few more months and Camryn won't be a Senior Model for Janice Sanford Photography anymore because she'll be a Lexington High School Grad.πŸŽ“ But, I get her a little while longer and we still have one more big Senior Session to finish her Senior Model Team year with me.  It's gonna be a good one (cue the tears, Mama Wendy). For this session, I decided to try something a little different with Camryn and thanks to Joyride Social Studio in Lexington, we stayed warm on a cold day, had some serious fun, and I created a gallery for her like nothing she's had so far. Scroll on for more Senior Model antics!😊 more note! So many thanks to Camryn's Mom for capturing these fun behind-the-scenes images.

Testing testing | Is this on? |Janice Sanford Photography

Welcome to round two of "is my blog working today"?!!  I love technology because it makes my life easier in so many ways, except when it doesn't.😦 I realize that it may actually be due to operator error...however, as my husband says when a program gets updated it's not always better, sometimes it's just different. So here goes!!

Beechnut | Journey's End | Janice Sanford Photography

Celebrating relationships, celebrating life, and celebrating love...that's what Journey's End is all about.  It takes only moments to be immersed in the bond that Beechnut and Kelly share.  As Kelly told me in her details about Beechnut, "Beechnut loves people, loves having company, especially women.  He just wants attention".  From the first minute I was in the backyard with Kelly and this handsome 14.5 year old fellow, he was ready for a head rub, a good scratch, and a treat.  Every time I squatted at his level with my camera, he bounded right toward me. It's impossible not to fall in love with him.πŸ’“

Erin & Halie | Family Photography | Janice Sanford Photography

Do they always get along...ummm, no.  I used to describe their relationship this way "They are either best friends or they cannot be in the same hemisphere".  If you have more than one child or a sibling yourself, you may well relate to this!  But the thing they do know is that capturing memories is important to all of us and so, when we knew we were all going to Ohio for Christmas, the plan for this sweet little sister shoot was hatched. Indulge me, if you will, I have to get just a little sentimental. (What kind of Mom would I be if I didn't?!!) I look at these images, and in my mind's eye, I can still see the little girls that carried baby dolls to church, the teenagers with after-school jobs, and the college students trying to figure out life. Every one of those people turned them into the daughters that I'm so happy to call my own.πŸ’— Scroll till the end so you don't miss the laughter!😍

Bryce | Class of 2022 | Janice Sanford Photography

And just like that...Senior sessions for 2021 are a wrap, and what a great session this was to end the year with!! Bryce and Bear make a great team, and Bear was quite possibly the most well behaved fur baby I've ever had at a photo shoot.🐢  Last Friday was a tricky weather day - I'm pretty sure we had exactly one hour that it wasn't raining and we used every minute of it.   Bryce, a senior at Gray Collegiate, has one more semester of high school and then he's headed to the College of Charleston.  Lots of good things are in store for this wonderful young man!

Cayleigh | Class of 2022 | Janice Sanford Photography

All through August and September, I longed for Fall days and the start of Fall Portrait Sessions and, oh my goodness, they just get better and better!  Caleigh is a Senior this year at Union Pines High School in North Carolina (my high school's rival😎) and the daughter of one of my dearest friends from home.  Last year we talked about how wonderful it would be if I could photograph Cayleigh's Senior portraits this year, and just like that, a plan was hatched!  Cayleigh has this fun, vibrant personality and she is just as lovely as her Mama! I enjoyed every single moment of our time together and like all fabulous things, I found it ending way too soon.  I'll definitely be looking for this gorgeous girl through my lens again in the future!😍
