About Us

Thank you for visiting my website! I am Terry D'Arco, and I became interested in photography as a hobby. I worked for another portrait studio for several years and then opened my first studio with my husband, Wayne in 1988. We opened Precious Portraits opened in New Bern in 1995.

I know you have many choices for photography. I have been creating beautiful portraits since 1988 and promise that you will love the images we create together!  What sets me apart is my years of professional experience. I love my chosen profession and I make sessions fun and easy.

My style is traditional with a contemporary flair. My clients come to me for portrait art that they know they will treasure forever.

My studio is conveniently located on Trent Road.  Along with studio portraits, I have a Portrait Garden in my yard in New Bern and it has many beautiful scenes. You will see samples of my garden in my galleries. 

I love people, love life, and have been truly blessed with this opportunity to bring joy to others.
