Chapel Hill Senior Photographer Sometimes even the best laid plans don’t work out. I’d been talking with Anna for a while about when and where we could do her senior portrait session, and we finally settled on a Monday morning in Chapel Hill.

Raulston Arboretum Senior Portraits Olivia and Annie got to know each other through basketball. They scheduled their senior sessions back to back so they could take a couple photos together in between (you’ll have to check them out at the end of Annie’s post).

She went straight into a PhD program in environmental studies through the school of public health and she’s about to graduate!! I’m sure it’s been a long road, and this is a huge accomplishment! We forgive her for […]

UNC Grad Portraits Mel’s session could not have worked out more perfectly. It looked like there might be scattered storms the day of his session, but those can be so unpredictable that we decided to shot anyway. I finished my pervious session at 5:55 and not two minutes later it started pouring. And it didn’t […]
