Welcome to my site! My name is Cristel Payne and I am a Raleigh newborn baby photographer serving the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area.

I am a mother to two beautiful young daughters and a wife to a talented Raleigh wedding photographer. These three incredible beings are my inspiration (and the focus of some of my best work!).

There are very few moments in life that are so emotionally charged and beautiful as seeing your newborn baby. Each photo is lovingly captured to help you bring back these precious memories for years to come. I would love to have the opportunity to take pictures of this special time in your life. I look forward to getting to know you and your family!
