Welcome to Moon and Skye Photography


…I’m Byron Hlina, a happily married photographer with two wonderful girls. I retired in 2015 and shortly after that decided to start Moon and Skye Photography.  I started by photographing the neighborhood swim team and just loved the interaction between swimmer and water.  My daughters are into various sports, so I began my journey there.  I created the business using my two daughter’s middle name, Autumn Moon and Alyssa Skye.  For several years now I have developed my skills photographing nature, various performances, landscapes, landmarks, sports, people, animals and just crazy things.

 So you’ve come to the right place, this is where capturing a moment is just as exciting as the moment itself!!  There is no shortage of things or people to photograph in various settings and locations:  the studio, sporting event, dance routine, in nature, school functions, etc.  The struggles are REAL when searching for that right spot or position to get that unique one of a kind shot.  Where the long hours in the digital darkroom reveal those special moments to be treasured for future generations!

I know that personal photographs are shared among family and friends plus sometimes passed down from generation to generation, so I take this responsibility as a photographer very seriously.  My goal is to not only capture your physical appearance, but your personality as well.  While the sessions are light and fun, I also want to give you photos that are not only beautiful, but also a timeless piece of art.

I offer both studio and outdoor photography.  My studio is located in North Raleigh.  I am flexible to a wide array of outdoor location opportunities and have recently photographed at JC Raulston Arboretum, Historic Oak View County Park, Raleigh Little Theatre Rose Gardens, Lafayette Village, WRAL Azalea Gardens and Pullen Park.  Or we can meet at any location of your choice within a 15 mile radius of Raleigh.

I offer both Fully Developed High Quality Print Images and/or Digital Images (.JPG files).  I feel digital is your best option because it allows you to share with family and friends, anyone via social media, the ability to create your own personal photo book(s), print and frame your favorite photo(s) plus the .JPEG’s become a permanent part of your photo collection.

I strive to provide the highest level of professional photography services at a price you can afford.  Click here for the Print Pricing, Photography Packages and Digital Pricing.  I believe every picture has a story to tell and I look forward to helping you tell yours.  I’m ready to make it happen so don’t be shy and connect with me today!
