Hi there! My name is Victoria, and I am a full-time Maternity and Newborn Photographer in the Raleigh area. I have now been a professional photographer for 15 years, and have been grateful to work with hundreds of incredible families along the way.
If you are like me, you are passionate about your amazing family, and are devoted to the joy, tender moments, and emotions that come with being part of it!
I believe that family is the most important thing. It is the most incredible gift that life has to offer! As a photographer, my role is to provide families with a unique experience that is comfortable and enjoyable. To do this, I take time to get to know my clients so that I can tailor their sessions to suit their personalities, wants, and visions. I am passionate about capturing the perfect newborn photo that families will reflect on and love for years to come.
Outside of photography, you will find me spending time with my family. As the wife of my dear husband, the mom of 3 boys, and the lover of my two cats and one dog, I’ve got my hands full! A little fun fact about me: I am the only woman living with 7 male souls, and all of their names happen to start with S! Our days are always busy, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am also close to my sister and my nieces. I devote my free time to giant green plants, hot and freshly-brewed, light-roasted coffee, going to the gym, dogs of all kinds, traveling, earth tones, reminiscing over old photo albums, and walking around barefoot.
Ready to stop sending potential clients to a website that doesn’t represent the business you’ve worked so hard to build?
You only have one shot at making a first impression. You have .05 seconds to capture your customers’ attention before they go to the next result on their google search. If your website is outdated, slow, or not mobile-ready, you are losing sales to your competition (who likely has a better website). It’s time to spruce up your brand and website and convert your dream clients.
I’m Steph, the Owner and Creative Director behind Southern Creative. After partnering with business owners in multiple industries, I started seeing the same problems pop up over and over again. Business owners launching their brand spanking new websites only to still be lacking in overall marketing strategy, over their heads in tech overwhelm, and websites getting lost in the black hole of google.
Cue Southern Creative — launched with the mission of supporting business owners, like you, truly stand out online, ditch tech overwhelm, overcome digital marketing gaps, and well in short; bring WordPress Websites back with a new level of sophistication.
I crafted a strategic system to help you find your brand’s secret sauce, design the perfect visuals to match, and then share it with the world on a stellar website.

You are an entrepreneur who is building your business, perfecting your service and product, and also creating your brand, but what exactly is a brand? You will find thousands and thousands of definitions. If you went to college for business and took marketing you know it’s cemented in your head that the brand is the logo, symbol, design, and beautifully cohesive Instagram feed. This simple concept from the past has evolved – a brand is not just what you present to your ideal customers and clients in how you want them to perceive your brand it is also your ideal market’s experience of YOU! The gold mine of your success is when your brand is aligned with how your customers experience your brand. It is vital that everything in your business is consistent and precise – everything should be crystal clear. Unfortunately, when it comes to meeting your clients, your big photoshoot for your business, or being interviewed or featured in a magazine – you realize your clothes do not align with your brand and you have nothing to wear, resulting in a mini meltdown. A missing piece for entrepreneurs and small business owners is their clothes! They want their brand to be fresh, fun, and innovative but in their photos they are wearing a black blazer with pearl earrings – talk about unalignment in your branding.

CPA Liaison Service:
Bookkeeping hourly rates are typically much less than hourly rates for a CPA. For this reason, clients often find it beneficial to engage Abbi to do most of the legwork for their tax preparation at the end of the year, then hire a CPA for an hour to check over the documents and e-file the tax return. This proves to be much more cost effective for the business owner than paying a CPA for several hours of work, and much more efficient than hiring an employee to manage the books all year. It’s a way to cut costs without taking on huge headaches.
Non-Profit Consulting Service:
There are so many needs in our community, and many community members have some fascinating ideas for addressing these needs. But it’s important for nonprofits to know the laws and to ensure proper management of the funds entrusted to them by donors. Abbi started and ran her own nonprofit for seven years before eventually merging with a larger organization. She’s been hired as a consultant by several nonprofits to share her knowledge in the realm of nonprofit management.
