"Valerie is THE BEST!! From the first time we met, I knew she was the one! She has recently photographed my wedding and we did our engagement photoshoot last year. We had a blast! She has the ability to make everyone in the room feel comfortable. Valerie is sweet, funny and extremely talented. I love her! She truly cares about all of her clients. I fully trusted her and you should too. You won't be disappointed!"
My goal as your photographer is to make your photographic experience as simple and painless as possible, and dare I say it, FUN!
I'll be the first to admit that the thought of being in front of the camera can be kinda nerve-wracking, especially when you know that you'll be looking back on your photos for the years to come.
I remember very vividly the nerves and anxiety I felt for the days leading up to school picture day: choosing the right outfit, practicing my smile, and dreading that moment of our class being called down to the gymnasium for photos. And when it was finally time for my turn in front of the camera, the whole thing was over in a matter of seconds! The experience was usually so impersonal and quick because the photographer was rushed and just wanted to get out of there. Then there were the weeks of waiting and hoping that I didn't look like a total dork in my photo so that I wouldn't have to do retakes.
This repeat experience is why I believe that photography should be a great experience for all!
This approach will result in genuine, happiness-filled images. You know, the kind that give you total heart eyes when you look at them!
Photography should be fun, enjoyable AND natural! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget. Because decades later, I STILL remember how awkward school photo day was!
