Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Cristel and I am one of the few Raleigh newborn photographers specializing exclusively in baby and maternity portraiture. I mom to two beautiful daughters and wife to a talented Raleigh wedding photographer. These three incredible beings are my inspiration (and the focus of some of my best work!). I’m glad you stopped by my site! Please feel free to browse the galleries, check out the blog for my latest work and message me if you’re interested in scheduling a session.
There are very few moments in life that are so emotionally charged and beautiful as seeing your newborn baby. Each photo I take is lovingly captured to help you bring back these precious memories for years to come. Together, we will create memories that last for future generations, your children and grandchildren, to look back on and enjoy.
My skills extend beyond photography; I act as a quiet, gentle presence for your baby. Most of my clients are less than two weeks old, and they aren’t used to this world. I conduct all of my sessions in my home studio, which has plenty of natural light. There won’t be any harsh flashes or complicated lighting equipment. My sessions are peaceful and enjoyable for parents and baby.
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!
