College graduation marks the end of an era and the beginning of an exciting new chapter in life. As a Raleigh college and high school senior photographer, I get so excited to capture this momentous occasion for SO many amazing NC students! I am thrilled to share with you the senior photos of the sweetest UNC Chapel Hill graduate, Julianna!
I had so much fun at Julianna’s senior session! She is so fun and bubbly and I loved getting to know her more. She is in the Hussman School of Journalism and Media, and majoring in Advertising and Public Relations. So, of course we had to make a pitstop outside the Journalism school for a few photos during her session!
With all my UNC seniors, there are a few iconic landmarks on campus we always make a stop at! Our first stop during her senior session was the Old Well, a famous symbol and a must-have photo for most UNC students. The vibrant pink flowers at the Old Well are one of my favorite spots on campus in April!
Pro Tip: If you’re thinking about heading to the Old Well for grad photos, the crowds get very large closer to graduation day, so I recommend doing your senior photos in early April to avoid long lines.
Next, we made our way to the Bell Tower, another iconic spot on campus. We took advantage of the beautiful evening light in April and captured some stunning shots of Julianna under the Bell Tower. My absolute favorite part is the Carolina Blue ceiling tiles!
This campus is so beautiful anytime of year, and will truly never grow old. The weather was beautiful, and Julianna was SUCH a joy to work with. I hope these photos will be a beautiful reminder of her achievement and a celebration of her accomplishments at UNC!
Julianna is currently working full time as a leasing professional, and going into the Marketing field after graduation! She says one of her favorite memories from her time at Carolina was during Junior year. She had her sorority formal the same day as the Final Four basketball game where they beat Duke in, and they got to go rush Franklin Street after the formal!
Congratulations to Julianna and all the 2023 Tarheel grads! Here are a few favorites from her spring senior session at UNC!
“Sarah is the best photographer I know! She did my college graduation pictures and they turned out better than I could have ever imagined! We went to all my favorite places on UNC’s campus and every photo turned out so bright and beautiful! I will cherish these pictures forever!” – Julianna
