Welcome to Moon and Skye Photography


 …I’m Byron Hlina, a happily married photographer with two wonderful girls.  I retired in 2015 and decide I would learn photography.  I then decided to start Moon and Skye Photography, using my daughter’s middle name, Autumn Moon and Alyssa Skye.  In the summer of 2015, I began photographing our neighborhood swim team falling in love with the interaction between swimmer and water.  I progressed on to photographing various sporting events and dance performances.  Continuing my progression I started learning how to photograph landscapes, landmarks and wildlife.  I further developed my skill by photographing one of the hardest subject, people: graduation, senior, personal, special occasions and weddings.  All the while I continually upgraded my camera equipment and accessories.  In 2019, I started volunteering at Millbrook HS photographing their various sporting events.

I have done both indoor and outdoor photography:  North Carolina Zoo, JC Raulston Arboretum, Hunt Horse Complex, NC Museum of Art, WRAL Azalea Gardens, Historic Oakwood Cemetery, and Historic Yates Mill.

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 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 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!
