“Had the pleasure of working with Valarie and truly enjoyed every minute of it!”

From the get go, she is very professional and responded to all my messages within a timely manner. She is very detail oriented and gave me a thorough plan prior to our family photo shoot. I really loved all of the pictures we received. What struck me most is her ability to capture the moment. It gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling when I see our pictures. I can't wait to print them to hang around the house. I definitely recommend Val 1000%!!!


“Valarie is great with babies! She has the ability to soothe them..."

...and make them comfortable in order to capture those special memories. She’s so easy to work with and can help non photogenic folks feel comfortable. Loving my family photos.


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

Our experience with Valarie was wonderful from start to finish. She begins by consulting with you to immediately start envisioning what you hope for in photos and offers location suggestions.


“You can see the cinematic quality in some of her shots carrying through from her videography background.”

Val is dependable, organized, and easy to work with. She is particularly great with natural light photography. You can see the cinematic quality in some of her shots carrying through from her videography background. I highly recommend working with her!
