Pullen Park Senior Photos in Downtown Raleigh, NC | Emily Kornegay

This week I headed to Raleigh for Emily’s individual senior session. She is one of my 2019 senior spokesmodels…and actually now that I think about it, she is the last to have her individual session 🙁

I’ve known Emily and her family for a long time –– her mom was my elementary school P.E. teacher and she is cousins with my best friend, Rachel (aka @loudhotblonde). I cannot BELIEVE she is already graduating!

Emily will be heading to NC State next year, so of course we had to go to Raleigh for her senior photos. We started at Pullen Park for some greenery and their awesome indoor carousel! Michele had her own high school senior photos in this same park so there was lots of reminiscing!

We ended in downtown Raleigh by the City Hall for some sassier shots and to get a different vibe from the greenery of the park.

Emily is so sweet and I am going to miss her so much next year!!

Here are my favorites from her senior session 🙂

Emily’s mom said she had her own senior photos taken on this bridge with her friends. I can’t wait to see the side-by-side comparisons!

Emily brought her mom and her best friend Addison to her session, which means you know we had to get some of them together!

I love the ones of her and Addison –– so sweet!!! They’ve been best friends since fourth grade (they actually met in my mom’s class!).

For something a little different, Emily wanted to use the Pullen Park indoor carousel. It was so fun!!! I love all of the lights and colors!

To wrap up the shoot, we went to the top of the McLaurin Parking Deck to get some of the city skyline. Emily wore the cutest black romper and sparkly heels, which was perfect for some sassy city photos!
