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 Two French bulldogs that keep me on my toes. The first thing you'll probably notice about me is my loud laugh ( hey! it's a NY thing lol) I am very easy-going, love the outdoors, hiking & traveling. My most recent trip was to Peru.

On a Friday night, you would probably catch me editing or watching bad reality T.V. I love movies and literature. I have a background in Social Work which allows me to work with any individual 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.”
