Hi, I am Dana Flaherty.

I am an award-winning photographer from Long Island, NY who recently moved to Raleigh, NC. I love to create images that tell a story. I am overly passionate about capturing those authentic, raw moments between children & their families.

I am a wife to a talented artist & a Mom to a beautiful teenage girl. I have a french bulldog named " Snickers" who is my cuddle buddy. I love to laugh, am very easy going & love the outdoors.

I am guilty of binge-watching on Netflix & love Cadbury Creme eggs. On a Friday night, you would probably catch me editing or watching the ID channel. I love movies and literature. I have a background in Social Work which allows me to work with any individuals on the spectrum.

Overall I am just an artsy, fun type of gal who loves what she does. I can't wait to meet you & photograph your family's next story.

Raleigh, NC Family Photographer


“I’ve been searching since my kids were born to find someone who has an eye like yours. I’m so glad I finally found you. You gave us such a special gift that will be cherished forever. It’s funny...as chaotic as that session felt, you somehow managed to capture the beauty and realness of our family. I am so, so grateful.”

“Absolutely loved working with her. She was very patient and kind with my kids. Her pictures have a soul. I can remember my thoughts behind each picture - they were beautifully captured. Thank you Dana”

“Dana is so sweet, has a great energy and is with you every step of the way! She was so patient with my two children who are full of energy! She even won over my two year-old and that is no easy task! I'll cherish these memories forever”

“She has such an amazing talent and although my daughter was nervous at first, Dana made her feel comfortable and brought out my daughters true personality! I even received my photos in a week and they were all so beautiful it was tough picking out which I loved most because I loved them all!!!”
