Press pause on the rest of the world and say “yes” to a few hours of family time in front of the camera. There’s no time like the present to create images your family will treasure for generations!  

Plain and simple, our family sessions focus on capturing the bond you share

It’s important to look back on the ways your family has grown and developed over the years, and portraits are tangible reminders of the milestones you’ve experienced. 

Life is so beautiful, imperfections and all. And it goes by fast. As the parents of five, we get how challenging it can be to carve out time for family portraits. “We’ll do it next month” quickly becomes “Let’s try again next year.” Before you know it, there’s a three-year gap between your Christmas cards and a family photo hanging over the fireplace that’s completely out of date.

“I can barely get my child to look at the camera, and Valerie was able to get so many amazing photographs that captured her personality perfectly! She is a very talented photographer that knows how to make the total experience an enjoyable one.”  —Robyn 

Let us guess: Your family is loud, messy, and silly. Ours too! Which is why we’re adept at wrangling rowdy crews and coaxing smiles out of even the most camera-shy littles (and adults). Let’s celebrate all the things that make you exactly who you are during a relaxed family portrait session. Whether we’re taking studio shots of your children or capturing an outdoor session on the beach featuring your entire extended family, we’ll deliver a fun portrait experience that results in beautiful, meaningful imagery.

“They are amazing with newborns, babies, maternity, and more! Such a wonderful business to support, and a great and talented photographer!” —Cara

Whether this is your first time expecting or you’re preparing to welcome baby number five, pregnancy is a remarkable experience that deserves to be documented. Yes, your waistline is growing and your hormones are running wild...but in so many ways, you’re more beautiful than you’ve ever been. A maternity session is a wonderful way to celebrate the child you’re carrying and the strength of your body. Want to turn your portraits into a sweet bonding experience? Your partner and/or your other children are more than welcome to join us!

Plan your newborn session

Newborn mini sessions begin at $399.

“With my first pregnancy, Valerie did our family's maternity photos way back when and we absolutely loved them! Of course we then scheduled newborn portraits when our son was born and we cherish those precious pictures of a time when he was so little and we were a new family of three! Four years later, Valerie's work was just as wonderful, if not even more so, and we knew we had to have her do our second child's newborn portraits. We adore those images and ordered canvases that we admire every day on our walls at home.” —Erica

We prefer to photograph newborns at 6 to 12 days old, when their “womb memory” is still fresh. This means that the window for capturing your infant’s tiny toes and feather-light lashes is incredibly small! Booking a newborn session ensures that you’ll always have a reminder of your child’s first few days on earth. Valerie has been photographing newborns since 2009, and spent several years studying the art of newborn posing and lighting in a series of workshops and master classes. Our studio offers a relaxed, calm environment for your portraits, and you can rest assured that your little one will be lovingly attended to by a professional photographer who prioritizes safety. Older siblings are welcome to join during the latter portion of your session!
