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.]

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also wish to visit my website at http://www.ericacourtinephotography.com.
