Thank you for stopping by! Whether you’re here to get more information on booking your own session or just to see the sweet photos of all the babies, mamas, and families, you’re welcome here!
I'm Valerie and I can't wait to meet you and your family. A little about me...I love anything I can create and the process of composing and editing to create art is what drew me to photography. I believe that painting is cathartic, though I'm talking walls, cabinets, etc. because I can't paint a tree to save my life! I taught myself to knit because newborn props are expensive and despite what my husband says, knitting is not just for grandmothers!
I hope that through my images you will not only see my love for photography but the passion, energy, and creativity that I put into each and every one of my sessions. So if I seem super particular and neurotic about the details when taking a photo, wrapping a baby, or styling a session, just know that it's because I have a vision that I am trying to bring to life for your family!
When I'm not behind a camera, you'll most likely find me chasing after my three kids (including twins!), tackling DIY projects at home, knitting bonnets (possibly yelling a lot in the process when I mess up), or on an adventure with my family!
Please contact me with any questions you might have. I can’t wait to work with you!
This is my favorite photo of my children. I printed it in poster size and hung it on my living room wall. To some, that might be weird because you can't even see their faces. But to us, it's a perfect depiction of their personalities. From running around in diapers, because wearing clothes was so out of style, to my oldest playing the mom role, wrangling her brother and sister in, my son's military perfect stance and his twin sister's opposite in every way, defiance and refusal to put those little feet together. When I look at this image, I see them. And that's just what I want to capture for you.
There is no event too small to photograph. From sleeping babies with tiny newborn toes to tummy time and wobbly sitters, to smash cakes, every moment and memory is valuable. As a mom, I know this so well and it's what inspires me to document those moments for others.
Life isn't perfect and photos don't have to be either. Let me obsess over the details and you just enjoy your family. Real life is chaotic and beautiful. So if your kids are crying or refuse to smile, don't stress because those moments are real and I'm here to document your family just as you are.
You created a beautiful family, now let me help you show them off!
