Hi I'm Valerie. Its a pleasure to meet you...

I have a passion and desire to capture honest, natural fleeting moments and freeze them in time. Not as stale, cold symbols of the past, but as fresh memories spilling over with sounds, sights and emotion of today.

My greatest inspiration was found as a young child, viewing black & white photographs taken by my father during his time serving in the Vietnam war. The realism and emotion enclosed within those photos sparked a sense of awareness and compassion that has never left me and I carry that over into my own work today as a living tribute to my father.

As a mother of two, I appreciate the honesty of children and their self-assurance. I allow them to be themselves in front of the camera and in turn their true character is depicted in your completed portraits. Every goofy grin, every shy smirk, every warm spirit.

I reside in Huntsville, Alabama and provide children's photography services to the North Alabama, Tennessee Valley area. I am also available for photo sessions within North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia throughout the year.

I look forward to meeting you & your child soon.
