Allie Carpenter Photography, All Wrapped Up Parties, Raleigh Small Business Women, 2Allie of Allie Carpenter Photography shared an All Wrapped Up Parties Playdate on her blog! Owners Alexis Hetrick and Julia Huffman (fondly called “The Girls” around Vend Raleigh) are wonderfully creative, friendly and warm! I just love that Allie caught these beautiful images for them. Allie has recently become more active in Vend Raleigh, last month she wrote a post for Vend on charging what you are worth. (Both Wrapped Up Parties and Allie Carpenter Photography are Vend Raleigh Directory Members.) Great cross-promotion “girls”!

  1. Working with Allie was fantastic — a great talent and an amazingly fun gal all in one. Julia and I felt lucky to have her and hope to meet her daughter and play next time!
