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.]

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.

Rose Trail Images is a North Carolina Photographer serving the Raleigh/Durham area. Owned by Audrey Priel, she specializes in fun, unposed sessions for families, couples, and events. Rose Trail Images focuses more on the love, smiles, and everything else in between as opposed to more traditional posing.
Audrey originally grew up in the New England area surrounded by nature. Mountains, ocean, hiking trails, she loved it all. Her love of nature inspired her to buy a DSLR camera to save all of her memories from wherever she went. Since then, she has found a new love and deep respect for photographing people and absolutely adores her clients! From families and babies to engagements and milestone events, Audrey has had a blast clicking, creating, and meeting some extraordinary people along the way.
Nature is still a huge part of her photography, as almost all sessions are done outside in various gorgeous North Carolina landscapes. Wake Forest, Rolesville, and North Raleigh have some of the best hidden gems for beautiful session locations! Lifestyle sessions done in clients’ homes are also very personal and near and dear to our heart.
Each session is super unique and filled with laughter, smiles, and stories. Fun fact: we have a really good time together!

I’m a mom of 2 young adults, a wife, a daughter, and a business consultant “by day”. I have a very short commute to my home office … so I treasure how Origami Owl has given me connections with other women that I wouldn’t be able to have otherwise!
I Love What I Do
My favorite part of being an Independent Designer is being able to help others create lockets that “tell their story.”
Whether they are creating a locket to reflect their family, their hobbies, their career or to honor special people in their life, it has been an honor to hear their stories and to be a part of that process.
Another reason that I love what I do is that I have the opportunity to mentor and help others begin their amazing career with Origami Owl.
I would love to help you design something special! Tell me, what’s your story?

My Park Lane Story
I was introduced to Park Lane Jewelry in 2013 by friend from church. She invited me to go to this thing called a ‘Quarter Auction’. Well – I won 2 pairs of earrings and saw some of the most beautiful jewelry I’d seen in ages. My friend introduced me to her sister – a Park Lane Fashion Director and I was hooked. I attended many more special events and purchased many more pieces outside of the events. I was – and still am- always amazed at how much I got for such a small amount of money.
In the second half of 2015 after having an expensive surgery, expensive kitchen water damage & repairs AND a shattered car window – none of which were fully covered by insurance, I knew I needed a way to make a little more income.
That same Fashion Director – now a Sr. Division Manager is still my ‘Park Lane Person’. I’ve been to many more quarter auctions and special events and even had a few of my own. She even helped me find the perfect jewelry ensemble for my daughter’s wedding!
She shared with me the unbeatable buying program for guests, the amazing & ridiculously generous hostess program and the outstanding Fashion Director`s income & perks – like free trips and a Mercedes! Add those to the jewelry I had to have and a really simple show demo and I knew I could do this – I could be a part of Park Lane! I was impressed with the company’s values and work ethic – and of course how they reward their customers, hosts and their representatives.
I love showing our beautiful jewelry to everyone. Whether you are classic, trendy, bold or traditional in your jewelry style, I’ve got something for you. I am so excited to be helping my clients and hostesses understand all they stand to gain by our programs in a fun, interactive way! Please contact me to host your very own, very fun ‘dress up party‘!

Did you also know they have been used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits? They are also mentioned over 500 times in the Bible!
