Hi.  My name is Valerie.  I am a mom, a writer, a picture makerer, an animal lover who will follow stray cats anywhere, and I have an insatiable appetite for story.  I believe in the power of words and images and shared story to lift us up.

As a photographer, my goal is always to honor the unique energy I see, to make photos that highlight the integrity of life and connection; the spark of time, place and individuality.  Photos that offer relief because they feel a little true.

I currently take on portraits and journalism projects, and anything with animals and kids.  I have an ongoing project called Tinker Portraits: Images of Women Playing.  If you'd like to be a part of it, please reach out.
