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.

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.]

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 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.

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!

Beautycounter is a mission based company that launched in March of 2013. Beautycounter’s mission is to get “safer products into the hands of everyone.” You may be wondering what does that really mean. It means that Beautycounter is about educating and informing consumers on how to read their personal care labels. Beautycounter provides an option to choose safer products for you and your loved ones. Beautycounter has skincare, body care, kids and baby line and cosmetics.
The last federal law to regulate the ingredients in personal care products was in 1938. To date, the US have only banned 30 ingredients, whereas the European Union (EU) have banned 1400. Therefore, it is perfectly legal for personal care companies to include ingredients that are known to be harmful to our health. With that in mind, Beautycounter created a Never List that comprises over 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients that is prohibited when formulating their products. Beautycounter creates products with safety and performance in mind. When Beautycounter launched in 2013, there were 9 products; however now there are 90 products and more in the works.
I’ve been using Beautycounter for over 2 years and started as a consultant in July 2016. I decided to join as a consultant after my youngest daughter started Kindergarten. I wanted to find a job that would be super flexible so that I can still focus on being a stay-at-home Mom. I already loved using Beautycounter products, so I thought what better way to share the mission and help our family out financially.
If you’re interested in finding out more about Beautycounter, I’d love to chat with you. I also have products on hand for you to try. You may contact me through email email@example.com or phone 415.517.0112. Here’s my personal website for you to check out the products: beautycounter.com/dinasaiz Looking forward to meeting you!

Transforming Hope strives to EDUCATE the general public on the issue of human trafficking, PREVENT exploitation from becoming a reality for children in the Triangle, and help to RESTORE the lives of children and their families who have already been affected by human trafficking.
Through education, we have trained more than 3,000 individuals on the issue of human trafficking, how to recognize it, and how to respond to a potential victim. Those educated include law enforcement, medical professionals, Wake County school nurses, W.I.C. workers, volunteer mentors in Durham County schools, teens, and the general public.
Through prevention, we’ve created a 45-minute workshop for middle and high school students to equip and empower them to value others and avoid being lured into human trafficking. In September, 2015, we also helped pass a law that states all middle and high schools in NC shall provide awareness and prevention of human trafficking to their students.
Through restoration, we are developing and building a wrap-around program. This program utilizes collaborations around the Triangle to “wrap around” a family in need of holistic care after experiencing the trauma of being exploited.
Visit our website or follow us on social media to learn more about how YOU can make a difference right here in the Triangle!
