I aim to give you a family and newborn portrait experience that is carefully curated with you in mind by taking care of every last detail from wardrobe and styling to installing your completed artwork, allowing you to truly be present and focus on what matters most.
From our first conversation about your newborn and family photos to the moment your artwork is hung on your wall, I’m here every step of the way to make the entire process easy and enjoyable.
I assist with outfit styling, photo selection, printing, and more. I’ll even install the photos on the wall for you. At the end of your experience, you’ll be left with an heirloom quality tangible legacy of printed artwork and albums that instantly reminds you of their tiny fingers and toes or how perfectly they fit into your arms during this season of life.
The first year of your baby’s life holds so many memories and milestones. But it can happen in the blink of an eye. One minute they are a tiny newborn and you're learning to navigate motherhood while juggling everything else, and before you know it they are taking their first steps and getting into everything. Let’s document all of those little changes so you don’t miss a thing. This option includes maternity, newborn, 6 months, and first birthday so every milestone in between is captured.
Family portraits don’t just capture a single moment of time. They hold the memories of an entire season of life. Looking back on photos reminds you of more than just the day you took pictures. You think back to what your children were like at that age and are reminded of funny moments or sweet memories that happened during that time of life. The Signature Sessions are designed to capture this season of life with your family.
They change so much in the first year and you want to document all those big milestones and little details. The Simplicity Sessions are designed to catch those unique stages. These sessions are 20 minutes long and offered only in the studio during weekday mornings.
I’ll help you share your family photos with loved ones. You can gift a grandparent album or I’ll handle your birth announcements so they are ready to send and share your new baby with others.
There is nothing better than being able to physically hold those memories in your hand. Imagine snuggling up on the couch with your family as you turn the pages of your photo album, and feeling like you are reading the story of your life in this season. These heirloom quality albums are a great way to preserve those memories and create a tangible legacy to pass on for years to come.
Some photos are special enough to stand alone. Those photos are best suited for a statement piece or a large specialty framed print. We will make sure these photos get the attention they deserve with a statement on your wall.
I believe that framed photos on the wall really make a home, and tell the story of your family. When we fill our walls with the memories of these special moments, we are always surrounded by that joy and emotion. Choosing what photos to hang on your wall can feel intimidating, but I’ll help you decide which ones will look best in your home. I’ll also design your gallery wall so that it can grow with your family over time.
Digital images can also be purchased upon request.
I love working with you to help you choose, print, and display your newborn and family photographs in the best way possible. I offer the following printed products to display your photos.
After I receive your inquiry, we schedule a time to chat over the phone so we can make sure it’s a good fit and feel more comfortable with each other. I love to hear your vision, goals, and dreams for your session.
Once you sign your contract and submit your session fee, you are officially on my calendar.
I take care of every detail so you can focus on being Mom. We will meet to decide on wardrobe for you and your family, and solidify all session details. You’ll also be able to choose from a collection of 35+ dresses so you can avoid hours shopping for yourself.
We meet at my studio in Malvern, PA or location for your session! I capture all the details of you and your family and make it as stress-free as possible.
The highlight of the experience! We will view your final images together and create your custom artwork. When your order is ready, it will be delivered, and wall galleries are installed by Valerie herself!
"I was amazed at the talent and patience she exhibited our session. I will treasure these photos forever!"
