Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

The consult was great and outside opinion was nice to hear. The write up of [Cary’s reviews were] very helpful in [allowing me to stay present in the consult and not having to take notes, giving me direction after our meeting.]

Hi my name is Edalisse. I am a photographer. I photograph women….. I believe all women are beautiful in ways they do not recognize. I see past the wrinkles, the pounds and the self doubt. I see beauty from a woman’s perspective. My style is feminine, soft, and beautiful. Everything a woman strives to be. Unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes and we forget our essence. When was the last time you felt beautiful? Truly beautiful? Was it at your prom, your wedding? Do you even remember? At any age and every stage of your life I want to capture the best of you.

THP offers on location photography in Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, and Raleigh for your special occasions and milestones or to capture the details of everyday life. I love to travel so if you are outside of this area contact me for a custom quote.
For all THP Sessions I strive to keep it as relaxed and fun as possible. I place the focus on the connection of joy and love between those in the session. Traci Huffman Photography incorporates lifestyle photography in each session. We often see photographs posed perfectly and people smiling at the camera which is absolutely beautiful, however that is not always reality. THP captures your life as it is including the emotions, and most importantly the personalities & real life. Often the favorite images are the ones I catch in between with real life moments. I always get the posed “look at the camera and smile” shot, but I focus on capturing the love, joy, and emotion and less on the formal posing.

Hello love, I am Zoe Clark, a Maternity and Newborn Photographer in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. I have 2 silly daughters that are going into their teen stages soon. My husband is my best friend and nothing is more important to me than my family. I am a foreigner from a big city, Hong Kong, who loves to cook, eat, travel, dance, and practice yoga.
Whether you are a working mom with a crazy-busy life or a stay at home mom with toddlers and you are trying to grow your family, I’m here to help you capture and document all these beautiful, precious moments that past by too fast. I’m here to remind you to enjoy every moment with your little newborn because how fast time flies without notice. I’m here to tell you that it’s ok to be on camera when you think you are not in your best shape while you carry your beautiful baby in your belly or you need to lose that 10 or 15 pounds baby weight. Because all of those little moments of details will turn into a memory and we freeze them into all these beautiful images that you and your baby will appreciate more and more as time goes by.
And, like many of you, I struggle with how fast time seems to fly by. That’s one of the reasons I’m in love with photography. When a client tells me, ‘My newborn is growing so fast, she looks different every day.’ I totally get it. Or, ‘I just want to get some portraits taken before he loses those chubby cheeks.’ I get that, too. And I especially get it when someone says, ‘She is already One Year old, it’s crazy how fast the first year went by!
So call me. We’ll plan your session, we’ll have a great time, and you’ll love your pictures!

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.
