About Me - Niada Cradle Photography

Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Thanks for stopping by. There are so many decisions to make about your images and choosing a photographer should be an easy task.

  I pride in being a non-discriminatory creative photographer who uses shadows with all light types and hand edit images. 

I love LOVE and there's not a reason I should tell you who to love or support. 

  As a lifestyle photojournalist, I mix elements of documentary, editorial, dramatic lighting and storybook. I love the cinematic, film, dark shadows of photography. I love spending time with my family and love thrift shop finds. Life is meant to be enjoyed and I laugh with you and cry with you. We wipe our tears and then kick butt.  Long story short, we document your moment as it unfolds --candid and posed imaging.   I pride myself in being a luxury woman (in my mind) but I'm really just a small town girl who likes to travel and enjoy meeting new people along the way. Your images will not look like everyone else.  Detailing life moments as art for inclusivity regardless of race, gender and body.  I'm a curvy girl in my 40's so I enjoy working to get the right pose for the body type.  We strive for quality individuality to cater to you for a boutique experience of your special day.  I really don't meet a stranger. We will be best friends by the time I say hello. Just ask my introvert husband. 

As a native of Cary, North Carolina this self-proclaimed extreme couponer is a wife, mom of 2 daughters and 2 Plott Hound fur babies. As a husband and wife team our journey to Team Cradle, we started documenting our family‚Äôs legacy in 2004. After our one-month courtship transpired into marriage within four months we found love along with our love of photography. We began focusing more on creating artwork and the various technical components of photography to win competitions. That sparked our desire of being Niada Cradle Photography LLC in 2013. Outside of photography you can find me at various schools assisting students, in the stores with coupons, Outer Banks or on the Mountain to Sea Trails of North Carolina. In addition, there are a few causes that I volunteer or donate with my sorority,  Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and American Red Cross. Our desire are for you to receive an exceptional photography experience to display your timeless images as wall art and albums.

As award-winning, licensed and insured photography team we provide clients with Lifestyle wedding, Glamour/BoudoirFamily portraits, Professional Headshots, High School Seniors Portraits, and Product Food Photography (jjust to name a few) throughout Clayton, NC and surrounding areas. Intimate Weddings are my heart and you may get all the Cradles.  My husband and I both are natives of NC and we love a good discussion about what   North Carolina has to offer for everyday events and photography locations.


While North Carolina may have nothing short of photographers, there's only one Niada Cradle Photography.  It would be an honor for us to create art with you to become your photographer for a lifetime.
