There's no one else like you

Too many women tell me that they don't have their photo taken, because they don't like how they look. I get it, having your photo taken can be scary, and you want something you will love. Let me show you how you can actually enjoy it.

  • Worried about being in front of the camera? 

  • Not sure what to wear? 

  • Wondering what to do with all of your images?


Every woman needs to be shown her beauty that she, herself, cannot see sometimes. Valerie allowed me to appreciate, admire, and respect who I am


Valerie is amazing. And, that’s an understatement. As someone who hates to have the focus be on me, I was amazingly comfortable in front of her camera. It was truly a pampering experience, and I highly encourage others to spoil yourself! The pictures were flawless, and I was thrilled with the outcome!

Valerie and her team were extremely professional and thoughtfully guided me through the entire process, from makeup, outfit selections and poses. Valerie’s eye for capturing her subject in the best light and achieving the most desired results is beyond expression

Let's hop on a quick call. You can ask me all of your questions, and I can learn more about you and your goals for your photo shoot. Together, we will start to plan your session from when we'll be shooting and planning for what to wear.



From hair and makeup to wardrobe changes, you’ll be pampered from the beginning to end. I’ll guide you every step of the way, leaving you feeling like a supermodel by the time we’re done.



Leave for lunch then come back for a same day ordering appointment. We’ll review all of the amazing images from your shoot, and I’ll help you pick the perfect prints and design wall art for display in your home.

You deserve to have a little fun too!

Too many women have never had a portrait of themselves that they love, and avoid getting their picture taken.

At Flourish, we love pampering our clients with a beauty portrait session. We understand the importance of guiding you through each step of the process, from outfits, hair & makeup, posing guidance to helping design art for your walls.


Hi  I’m Valerie, and I love helping my clients see their own unique beauty. Prior to shooting with me, I’ve heard from countless women how much they hate having their pictures taken, but what I’ve learned is that often comes from not knowing what to do and not having photos of themselves they love. Having spent my earlier career directing models (and ultimately modeling myself for years),I’ve learned that having someone who selects your wardrobe, does your hair & makeup, lights you perfectly, and can guide your every move can make a supermodel out of just about anyone.

Because of this, I do an in-home wardrobe consultation, we’ll take care of your hair & makeup, and I’ll pose your every move…and within minutes of being in front of my camera and getting a sneak peek at the back of it, just like my other clients, you’ll be announcing how much fun you’re having. Relaxing and enjoying the experience is the key, and I love helping my clients do just that. I specialize in creating amazing images you’ll love, and beautiful wall art for your home.

I can’t wait to chat with you about how we can create amazing images together.
