Award Winning Photographer Leah Marie

I feel beyond blessed to be doing this job of telling your story since 2007.  I strive to create those ‘wow’ magazine worthy images that you treasure for generations to come. What is just as important, are those candid and authentic priceless moments, that happen in the blink of an eye. I also understand how important the little details, that you have spent so much time (and money) deciding and dreaming about are. In the end, it’s these laughs, tears, touches, questionable dance moves and loving looks that really matter.  It’s those priceless moments that you really want to document from your wedding day and I’m here to make that happen. 

 I strive to capture every moment possible and tell your beautiful story well. It is truly my privilege to both witness and capture the love and joy between couples and families. 

 I look forward to being part of your story whether local or afar!

Hi! I’m Amy Hill. I am a professionally trained photographer in Cary, NC. I have two college degrees; the first is in media production, and the second is in commercial photography. I used to be a product photographer, who moonlit as a wedding + portrait photographer, who taught an evening class at Wake Tech about how to use your digital camera, who also babysat once in a while.  Now, I am a busy mom of 2 little girls, wife to a talented chef, and photographer of life, laughter, and love.

I have found that I love to photograph women in all stages of their lives, and those they love.  From little girls, to high school seniors, to brides, to moms, to professional women.

Hello and Welcome!

To begin with, thank you for visiting my site!

There are a lot of photographers in the Raleigh-Durham area, so it means a lot that you’ve taken an interest in my work. I strive to give my clients the best, and I’m so excited to get the opportunity to do the same for you.

A little background on me:

I’m originally from Arizona, but I’ve been on the east coast since 1997. I love North Carolina and am proud to call it home! From the mountains in the Western areas to our beautiful beaches on the coast, North Carolina has everything my heart desires!

I have a wonderful husband of 19 years and two fantastic children. I’m a strong believer in family, and making marriages work. That’s one of the many reasons I love shooting weddings. To be there the moment a family is started, it’s just priceless!

Not only am I a professional photographer, I am also a seasoned ICU RN. This extensive education, knowledge and background make me very comfortable during birth sessions and newborn sessions. I am also completely up to date on all vaccinations, including a yearly flu shot. Your family’s health, especially your newest members of your family, is my top priority!

I am an avid mud runner. Yes, I climb, crawl, roll, and jump into mud on purpose. It’s so much fun! Ever want a good laugh I’ll invite you to come watch!

A little information on my sessions/photography style:

My love for photography spans back to my high school years as a sports and yearbook photographer. I spent many an hour sitting in darkrooms developing images, rolling my own film, learning the craft. Since those days (many, many moons ago) I have always carried a camera wherever I go, capturing moments in life as I see them happening. There is no comparison to seeing the joy in my clients faces when I deliver their images. Those moments of happiness and joy are the reason I do this. My goal is to make your moment special. To capture the memories for you and your loved ones. To show you your true beauty.

Although I have all the tools for indoor portrait work (lighting, etc), I prefer natural backgrounds and natural light for most sessions. I offer an extensive list of fun and beautiful places to hold your session. You have somewhere else in mind? Awesome! We love new sites! Want to get a little crazy and shoot from a lake or river? I’m there, right in it with you! The sky’s the limit! (Literally…no sky diving sessions, I’ve got a thing about heights!).

I love spontaneous, real sessions. Yes, I will pose you, lead you, and guide you, but I will strive to show the real you during your session. I will get you giggling and playing with your family. Those are the shots you will love! You will see your true beauty, your gorgeous smile, and your eyes twinkling.

So, are you ready to talk? Let’s have a conversation (phone, email, text, in person, etc) and start planning your perfect session!

I love what I do, I love making my clients happy, and I can’t wait to meet you! Head on over to our website and send me a message!




Custom Newborn and Family Portraiture

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, and surrounding areas.  I put the focus on your beautiful children and capture portraits that your family will treasure for generations.

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 specialty 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 erica@ericacourtinephotography.com.  You may also wish to visit my website at http://www.ericacourtinephotography.com or http://www.facebook.com/ericacourtinephotography .

There will be no backdrops, props or artificial lighting. If we’re having the session at your home I may ask to move furniture, open blinds, curtains or doors to make sure we’re working with the best possible light. I will rarely make suggestions on where you should sit and/or stand or things you could do, but I will chat with you before, during and after your session, so I can find out more about you and your story to help me showcase it. I will interact with you at times while I’m shooting, to help you relax.

Take a chance.

New portraits of your beautiful children will be one of the most important investments you make this year.

I’ll help you figure out what to wear, I’ll help you choose a location, I’ll help guide your family through our photo session. Don’t stress about your kids behaving because you can just sit back, relax, and let me be in charge. (I even wipe runny noses.) Plus, when we’re done, I’ll even help you figure out how best to display your new artwork in your home. Think of it as a living room makeover with a personal designer.

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.
