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 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.

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.

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.

Jewelry expresses your mood, your attitude, your personality. Jewelry places your signature on your outfit. Are you searching for a perfect gift? Jewelry is always appreciated and appropriate. Fashion-forward, unique, and exquisitely handcrafted, many Park Lane creations are inspired by world-renowned designers. Wear Park Lane jewelry with pride and you will sparkle with beauty and confidence everywhere you go!
About Park Lane Jewelry
Founded in Chicago in 1955 by Arthur and Shirley LeVin, Jewels by Park Lane defines `The American Dream`. As the world`s leading direct sales jewelry party plan company, Park Lane proudly offers exceptional quality jewelry that is backed by an unconditional lifetime guarantee.
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‘!

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.

Our founders are Haley Gray, and Christine Schoaff. This company was born when Haley experienced care giving for both of her parents simultaneously, while caring for four small children, and working a full time job. Some of the caregivers which worked with her parents were fantastic. Some of them were not. Some of them outright neglected Haley’s father who had dementia and Parkinson’s, leaving him sitting in a soiled diaper for hours, and leaving him alone while on duty. Other caregivers weren’t so bad, and they just neglected to scoop the kitty litter box, resulting in a nasty, smelly apartment.
Haley spent hours talking to the good caregivers trying to understand what motivated them, and what didn’t. It became clear that most of the good caregivers consider this line of work to be a calling. Frankly, you can’t pay someone to do this kind of work, and expect them to want to do it. They have to WANT to do it. So, the question becomes- how do we attract, and retain the industry’s best and most caring caregivers? We surveyed a number of caregivers and other personnel in the industry to understand what was important to them. Then we set about to start a company which provided those things which were most important to the caregivers.
From the client side of the equation, Haley interviewed a number of other clients, as well as geriatric care managers, pharmacists, and others, to ask them what the best practices are in the industry. By combining their suggestions together, and putting together a business plan as part of Haley’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Concentration at Duke, we had the basis of the company. We use technology where it is appropriate. We also use various low-tech approaches to care giving, such as better access to supervisors, random, unannounced drop-ins, and a note-book sharing system so that caregivers and family can communicate with one another about the state of their loved ones.
What this means for you is this- we aim to provide the best of both worlds. That means, better care for our clients, and a better work environment and conditions for our employees. It is quite simply, a win-win.
We have an amazing team of caregivers and managers in this business. Everyone’s first priority is customer safety, and satisfaction. We aim to be an Extension Of You. To make sure that Your Standards Are Realized.
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!

My love for houses and helping people has led me to choosing a career as a real estate agent. I grew up with a father who worked in the residential construction business which has allowed me to recognize both positive and negative aspects of housing. I feel it is very important to educate the buyer or seller about the process, listen to their needs/wants, and be their adviser. Buying or selling a house is a very important and challenging task to undertake. I will walk you through the entire process and make it as fun as possible while putting your needs in the forefront. I earn my client’s trust through honesty, patience, and hard work. I will see my clients needs through to the very end and will continue to provide value to the client even after a sale completes.
I chose to partner with Coldwell Banker HPW because they are the number one real estate company in the Triangle. With over 40 years experience, you can be assured that your needs will be put first!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
