Hi there. I'm your new photographer pal, Val.

After living coast to coast and exploring the world, I planted new roots with my husband on a charming island in the Bay Area of sunny California. In the service of others, I find myself inspired to view the world through a positive lens and shine light on empowered women's untold stories of strength, beauty, and love.

Oh my gosh Valarie, these are gorgeous.

I wish I could express to you how much it means to me to have these beautiful photos of us. It's an incredible feeling. I'm so, so grateful.

She made everything so easy and they all came out so beautifully and exactly as I'd hoped!


We appreciate you taking the extra time capturing us and letting us express ourselves freely.
