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.

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!

I am someone who is passionate about health and wellness. The most important piece to the puzzle is eliminating toxic chemical exposure from the foods we eat, and beauty products that go on our skin.
Your skin is your largest organ. It is important to keep our skin as healthy as possible. By utilizing products that are all natural and contain the vitamins and minerals our skin is lacking, we can create healthy, vibrant, young looking skin without the need for chemicals.
When I was introduced to Lemongrass Spa, I knew I had found the answer I was looking for. The products are amazing and I know you will love them as much as I do.
My mission is simple: Provide natural, non-toxic products that are clean and handmade fresh, right here in America

Hello and WELCOME to Altered Aesthetics!
My name is Jen Santoro and I am the owner and senior artist at Altered Aesthetics. Growing up in Southern California I always had a passion for all things makeup and beauty. After getting my first tattoo, I found another passion, getting more tattoos! In 2013, when I moved to Raleigh I decided to take a different path in my career and found permanent makeup and microblading, which brought together my passion for makeup and tattoos.
I am huge advocate of continual education in this industry, and am continually refining and perfecting my skills through additional cosmetic tattoo and microblading courses. By learning new techniques I am able to bring new and exciting services to Altered Aesthetics.
Altered Aesthetics has been a woman owned Raleigh business for a year now! Big things are coming and we have added another artist Kelly Denhalter, who shares our passion with brows. The goal of the team at Altered Aesthetics is to provide clients with an amazing set of brows that they will love and be proud of.
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.
My friend Kevin Wiley and I have formed a real estate team dedicated to helping people find the home that fits their lifestyle best. It’s called Chatham Grace Homes and we are focused on working with home buyers and sellers in the Greater Triangle, Apex and Chatham County areas. We’ve both lived in the area for more than 20 years and have a wide knowledge of the area, its neighborhoods and amenities. I hope you will think of us when you or someone you know may be looking for a place to call home.
Even if you aren’t thinking of selling right now, I’d love to help you declutter and organize your home so that it looks market ready at all times! Whether you are looking to declutter a large space or several small spaces or you are just looking to clean up your home, I would love to help you remove the chaos and find the calm.
- Purging, packing and decluttering your home before a move
- Decluttering areas such as garages, basements, closets, kitchens, cupboards, home offices, etc.
- Organizing areas such as pantries, kitchen drawers, desk drawers, kids toy storage areas, under the bathroom sink, and more. We can use existing materials around the home or find items to purchase that might support your new system. (Expensive bins aren’t always the answer!)
- Office organizing and developing filing systems
- Digital decluttering (clearing your inbox, unsubscribing to spam, etc)
- Additional special projects as needed
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
