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.]

As a freelance website designer and developer, I developed TWTH Consulting with the goal to add a custom touch to each project I work on. I am a hard worker and trustworthy partner for your online presence and bring an edge of creativity & enthusiasm that will set your site apart from your competitors.
I like to first sit down with a company to learn more about their business and how it operates. I find that usually a project may extend beyond the need for just a website but perhaps for tools to also help streamline processes behind the scenes for the business. By taking the time to get to know you and your business better, I am best able to develop a site and tools for you with the thoughts of how the business will grow in the future in mind to make expanding your site easier as the company grows.
I have experience working remotely with clients all over the country and here locally in the Triangle. If you are looking for a website designer, please contact me today. I would love the opportunity to work with you on your project.

My name is Erica and I am a photographer specializing in fine art portraiture for newborn babies, children, and families. 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.
If all newborn portraits look the same to you, an outdoor newborn portrait session may be perfect 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. If you appreciate the beauty of nature, there is nothing more breathtaking than your fresh new baby among the calming colors of nature. 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.
Interested in booking a newborn portrait session or family portrait session? Mention this listing and get 10% off your session fee.
If you have any questions about professional photography or my sessions, please send me an email at [email protected]. You may also wish to visit my website at http://www.ericacourtinephotography.com.

Paw And Crossbones is a boutique line of personalized accessories for pets and their people. We specialize in travel gear that helps you and your pet get out the door quickly and in style.
My name is Monica Cavanaugh, and I created Paw And Crossbones because I got tired of hauling my sweet mutt’s stuff around in random grocery bags and old corporate totes.
I knew her “luggage” would need to be sturdy, roomy, and be personalized in case there were multiple dogs with her sitter. Thus, The Bundle was born.
The sturdy canvas tote is large enough to fit everything she could possibly need, even for extended stays. The organic muslin food sack holds 24 cups of food, keeping her well fed for several days. The treat bag holds her precious carrots (and occasional cookies, when she’s extra good.) And the stainless bowls are a handy extra so we don’t have to scramble to dismantle her little dining area.
We’re expanding the brand to carry different styles of bags, as well as accessories like custom leash hook signs, custom treat jars, and more! Please check out the Etsy site and follow us on Etsy and Facebook!
I began using dōTERRA Essential Oils in 2009 while I was pregnant. As a Biologist, Naturalist, and Certified Environmental Educator it was such a relief to have safe, effective alternatives! Your path to a new philosophy of wellness begins by opening a bottle.
dōTERRA® (meaning “Gift of the Earth”) essential oils represent the safest, purest essential oils available in the world today. Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant, eliciting profound emotional responses. Yet the benefits of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal.
Used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits, essential oils can be natural alternatives in holistic self-care practices. Their unique chemistry allows them to be used aromatically and applied topically to the skin. Our essential oils are even safe enough to be taken as dietary aids to promote vitality and well being.
Each of dōTERRA’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essentials oils is carefully extracted by a global network of skilled growers, distillers, and chemists ensuring a consistently powerful user experience. They are 100% pure aromatic extracts and contain no artificial ingredients, and are Independently tested in 3rd Party Labs to be free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

Why should you use a travel agent?
- Travel agents work for YOU, not the travel supplier. We are looking out for YOUR best interest. We will call and call and call to get you the refund for the incorrect charge that showed up on your account. We do not try to sell you more than you want or need. In fact, we have been known to talk clients out of spending money because they didn’t need the options they thought were necessary.
- Travel agents save you time. You can share with us what you are looking for and we can immediately rule out options that are not a good fit. We can sit on hold dealing with new discounts that just came out. When you have a sudden thought while sitting in carpool, you can call or text to before you forget.
- Travel agents save you money. We follow discounts, specials and promotional offers. We know how to plan to help you maximize the money you are spending. We suggest options that will allow you to get the most “bang for your buck”.
- Travel agents can help you avoid scams or less than ideal locations. We book with trusted, reliable sources. We recommend hotels and cruise ships that have a good reputation. Travel agents talk to each other and we share information about the cleanliness of a place or the level of customer service provided.
DWB Vacations’s concierge planning services are complimentary when you book through us.
