Today, I'm thrilled to share the heartwarming story of Jessica's senior session – a beautiful adventure filled with love, laughter, and a touch of nostalgia!

After months of planning the perfect location, outfits and ALL THE DETAILS her day was finally here!!!

We started off with hair and makeup at my downtown Raleigh studio - while she was getting ready I steamed her outfits and made sure we had everything perfect for her session.

Imagine strolling through blooming flowers at the J C Arboretum, exploring charming urban spots in downtown Raleigh, and capturing precious moments against the backdrop of our beloved Raleigh skyline.

First location was the JC Arboretum, this is one of my favorite locations - be sure to check their hours as they close early during the week.

Jessica loves roses and especially white roses - adding a boquet of flowers to your session is a wonderful idea.

There are so many amazing gardens throughout the Raleigh area to pick for your NC senior portraits. When we plan your high school senior portrait session I will share with you my location gallery that has over 30 locations including several Raleigh gardens.

Next stop was the NC Art Museum - this location has so much to offer it is easy to spend 3 hours here. Downtown Raleigh is a short drive to this modern building, there is also a variety of looks for portraits on this campus.

Here is just a glimpse of Jessica's senior portraits at the NC Art Museum.

Lastly we headed back to downtown Raleigh for the sunset and some urban vibes.

Sometimes depending on the locations my seniors will wear some of their outfits at a couple different loations for multiple looks. No worries I have a changing pod to make outfit changes super easy no matter where we travel around Raleigh.

Jessica is so absolutely beautiful and how amazing to capture a variety of looks during her session.

But here's the real tearjerker: when Jessica slipped into her cap and gown, it was a moment that tugged at the heartstrings. As moms, we know how quickly time flies, and seeing our babies take this step toward adulthood is both joyful and bittersweet.

But even more when she put on her college shirt to celebrate her future at Penn State.

This amazing senior is going to do amazing things - she has such a bright future ahead of her. Can't wait to see what she accomplishes - I'll be over here cheering her on!!!
