I serve Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, and surrounding areas. I place the focus on your beautiful children and capture portraits that your family will treasure for generations.
My packages are created with purpose, to best meet the needs of a busy family. All newborn portrait packages include digital files with a print release, as well as professional quality prints and custom birth announcements. Why? Every family needs and wants digital copies of their portraits. Save them as a back up or use them to make prints and other gifts. Your family will surely be busy with a newborn baby in the house, however. It may be months, at least, before you find time to print your photos or design a birth announcement. My packages allow you to receive prints and announcements to enjoy right away, leaving you more time to enjoy your family.
Newborn portrait sessions can take place at my home studio in Fuquay Varina or in the comfort of your own home. Not sure which is right for you? Email me and I’ll help you figure out what the best fit is for your family.

Not only can I complete your session indoors, but I am one of the few newborn photographers on the east coast who can do newborn sessions completely outdoors.

These unique sessions can be completed from April through October. Outdoor newborn sessions are my passion and I have a list of many beautiful locations in the Raleigh area for this type of session that are not well known, as well as a special collection of props and equipment handpicked to keep babies comfortable and happy outdoors. I have a passion for creating portraits with earth tone colors and simple props, giving my newborn photography a natural, organic feel.

I am a boutique wedding & family photographer who believes in providing a one-of-a-kind, personalized session experience and artwork that you will love forever. Since 2009 my goal has been to photograph families and couples in a relaxed, joyful and artistic way.
I began studying photography when everyone shot film (remember film?) and I learned the classic art of black & white film processing & printing. There is something so powerful about making each print by hand, each result a unique piece of art. When I switched to digital in 2005, I brought to it my love for honesty in the images I create for works of art you will treasure.
My life with 2 children (12 & 9) and two large dogs is usually pretty crazy, but it’s also full of love and laughter and I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. Next to photography my favorite thing in the whole world is chocolate. Ok, and the beach, and pretty much anywhere there is good food & good friends- life is meant to be enjoyed!
Frustrated that good vintage style dresses are either extremely fragile, the wrong shape for today’s bodies or too expensive, I turned to creating my own designs.
I started making clothes for my daughters back in the 1980s. They’re all grown up now, very much into the Vintage scene and my youngest asked if I could make her a dress.
So I returned to college, studied garment construction, pattern drafting and tailoring techniques, developing the skills to make any women/child a beautiful bespoke dress, jacket or outfit for any special occasion.
It’s so lovely to return to exhibiting at craft and vintage fairs, meeting so many new people.
And now I’ve started passing my skills on through a series of sewing classes; from beginners taking their first steps in sewing, to giving intermediates the confidence and experience they desire to create their own garments and designs.
Hi! My name is Amanda Sulyi and I’m a northerner who transplanted to the south. I lived in Ohio for 25 years, and then moved to Raleigh, NC where I have been for the last 16 years. I am married and the proud mom of almost 10 year old twins, and a 4 year old giant yellow lab.
I started this hobby of making jewelry as something to do while I watched sports on TV. I love watching sports of all kinds, it is a big part of my life. My shop name acutally comes from the nickname of one of my favorite athletes, who is a race car driver. I had made several pieces of jewelry for friends as gifts and they always had told me that I needed to sell what I made. In 2014, my New Year’s resolution was to start an Etsy shop. I followed through on that resolution and here I am. My work is ever evolving, when I get a new idea and go for it…..and I love the outcome.
I truly enjoy it when someone purchase one of my pieces as a gift for a friend or loved one. I believe handmade gifts are the best, because it comes from the heart and there is intention and thought behind such a special gift.
I hope you enjoy what you see…..if you are looking for something in particular, send me a convo and I’d be happy to make something just for you! 🙂
