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!

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.

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.

In addition to beautiful branding photos for women, I also love to photograph + empower high school seniors. I love to make them feel special, confident and happy with who they are. I take time to learn about them and create a fun, custom session that results in the most beautiful pictures they’ve ever seen of themselves!

Afternoon Owl Designs specializes in originally designed hand crocheted cowls, scarves and accessories! All items are handmade by me in my smoke-free home!
My name is Rebecca, and I come from a long history of crafty ladies. My great grandmother tatted and crocheted. My grandmother sewed, and my mom… well, she can tat, knit, crochet and paint. They have all inspired me in their own ways to stay focused and learn a craft of my own.
I surround myself and my workspace with lovely things they have made or used in the past. From this inspiration, I began to create my own ideas. I taught myself how to crochet, left-handed. I fell in love. From there I began developing my own patterns and started selling on Etsy and at juried craft shows.
In addition to being a part of the Etsy universe, I am also an IT Specialist, a wife and a mommy. This all makes me a very busy, but very happy little bee.

As a mother of two boys, 19 and 16, I know how hard it is for busy mom’s to take care of themselves in the way that they should. I am here to help! As a consumer for 19 years and a consultant for 17, I am a true believer in the products and the company values of BeautiControl. BeautiControl, an internationally recognized beauty company, is known today as the #1 Premium Spa Brand. BeautiControl offers scientifically advanced skin-care and premium-quality cosmetics. The company strongly believes in one thing that sets it apart from their competitors: personalized service.

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.
