"Valerie was incredible! I contacted her super short notice after an unexpected health diagnosis and luckily, she was able to accommodate my engagement shoot! Engagement shoots can me awkward, but Valerie has such professionalism and grace that she makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera! I would definitely use her in the future and would recommend her without a doubt!"

Ashley & Carlos


She worked around my timing and needs especially being pregnant where it isn’t easy to rush to get to places but she was very patient with me. So far, I’ve had 2 shoots with her which were: maternity and first 48 hospital pics and I’m so happy and pleased, so much so that I don’t see myself using another photographer at all. I never felt photogenic in pictures but Valerie made sure she got all the right angles.

Vanessa & Kurtis


Valerie is amazing! She did our engagement shoot for us and I can’t tell you how amazing of a job she did. We just clicked she was able to get the best photos of both my fiancé and I. If you are looking for real talent and a great personality Valerie is your girl can’t wait to work with her again. Bravo!!!

Stephany & jose


Thank you for such a beautiful job, for your dedication and professionalism. I am happy with your services

Clarissa & Wesley


Valerie is FANTASTIC! I cannot sing her praises enough. Not only is she professional and excellent at what she does, she is also kind, patient, and so fun to work with. I absolutely LOVE all my maternity photos! My husband and I are so grateful to have been able to get these done considering we had to cancel our baby shower due to Covid-19. Valerie was a total joy and made the entire experience fun and easy. Her mix of traditional photos and creative/fun shots make for such an enjoyable, beautiful photoshoot. 

Vanessa & Fernando


Valerie is quite the creative artist. My husband and I LOVED the photos she took! Even during the extenuating circumstances and a pandemic, Valerie was able to conduct a, "Porch Session/Maternity Shoot" for my husband and I. She was able to capture such special moments we will never get back, with the added challenge of practicing socially distancing! We are forever grateful that Valerie took the time to capture these fleeting moments! We highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

"I had the pleasure of working with Valerie for my maternity shoot. I walked in nervous but those nerves went completely out the window. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. If you need a photographer please contact her. You won’t be sorry."

Patrice & Jermaine


"We had the pleasure of working with Valerie for our destination wedding in Jamaica, and to say she did a great job would be an understatement. Everything was amazing. She was so professional, sweet and easy to be around. The entire party and all the wedding guests loved her! Our photos came out amazing and we couldn't be more happy.
Thank you again!!"



Absolutely THE BEST photographer around! Valerie makes you feel at ease the entire time and truly captures the most amazing shots—-both unique and timeless. She effortlessly tailors to specific photo requests and you can tell she loves every moment of it. I would highly recommend her to any family or friend! Thank you Valerie!

Patricia & Matt


"From the minute I reached out to Valerie via email, she made me feel good, she was very prompt in her replies, she gave ideas and was great with follow up. We just had our shoot today and my husband and I had the best experience. We did not feel rushed. It was not a typical pose after pose quick shoot. Valerie really took her time to make sure every pose was perfect."

Liam's First Birthday


"Valerie has an incredible talent. Her creativity and energetic personality makes her the most recommended photographer on my list! My son LOVES taking pictures with Valerie, because she makes him feel comfortable & happy (he’s been taking pictures with her since he was 7 months). She flew from NJ to TX for his first birthday & I would do it again! She is 100% worth it!!" 

Karen & Christian


"Definitely an amazing photographer! Knows exactly what she is doing and has fun with every session she has. She makes you feel comfortable and asks for your input on things you might want to do.  Cannot go wrong with her!! Never disappointed!!"



"I was blown away by her professionalism, and what an amazing photographer she is. She not only took awesome photos of my friends and family, she captured some unforgettable moments that I can now hold as memories. I feel truly blessed for having Valerie’s amazing talent impact such an emotional and wonderful event in my Life!" 



"Valerie was such a pleasure to work with! She photographed my bridal shower, and the whole process was seamless. She was a delight to work with and really captured the most beautiful, raw moments of the day. I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience"

Jumana & Khaldoun


"Valerie is wonderful! Very easy to work with and such a sweet person! We had her photograph our daughter's baptism, and the photos are just beautiful. She really captured the day. We plan on using her for our daughter's first birthday cake smash photo shoot! Can't wait for that!
Wish I found her sooner!"



"When We decided to do a beach shoot I was super excited and nervous at the same time . But Valerie made me feel so comfortable I even forgot people were watching . She was very professional and creative . I'm beyond happy and satisfied with the results. She captured amazing images and very tasteful , I'm more than satisfied with the photos. I recommend her 150% ."
