Have you ever thought about the meaning of "a childlike wonder"? When was the last time you experienced something so amazing that you simply sat, in wonder?  

Do you ever take a moment to stop and watch a beautiful sunset, or an intricate skyline, or just your children, being children

What would happen if you allowed yourself to be completely open to finding that childlike wonder in the every day moments?

Would you feel small beneath the big sky?

Stand in awe of the mountains?

Or would you simply see the beauty in your family?

I would be so honored to come alongside you, to witness and preserve your memories. Whether you're documenting the trip of a lifetime or celebrating the birth of your newest family member, let me show you how you, your family, and your moments can be truly magical.

Give yourself permission to be childlike, to be open to finding your sense of wonder, and together, we will...

I'm so happy you're here! But let me start by letting in you in on a little secret...

 It's true, I get really excited about pretty sunlight, moody clouds, and the perfect amount of wind, but what I'm really here for, is you! What really makes your photos shine is when I can capture your family, just being you.

Hi! I'm Valerie

My family & I were lucky enough to book a session with Valerie while we were visiting MT this summer & we had the best experience! She picked the most beautiful location, she was so easy & fun to work with & our images are absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Valerie is beyond talented! We are forever grateful for the beautiful photos of our baby girl. She’s a true artist and her studio is amazing. We couldn’t imagine anyone better for family photography in Flathead Valley.

Valerie is absolutely amazing!! I was blown away with my maternity photos and our newborn/family photos turned out even better! I don’t know how she does it but she is a baby whisperer and made the entire session so relaxing for us sleep deprived new parents. If you are looking for someone professional, easy to be around, and gifted at their craft, then look no further. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you for the incredible work!
