Hey mama, I'm Valerie. Fort Riley Birth and Lifestyle Photographer. Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. And I know that may sound a little cliche. But when I was younger as a daughter of a single mother all my mom could afford was a disposable camera. And I remember the joy in my heart when she would take me to get the photos developed at our local Walgreens.
Being able to tell a families story whether I am apart of their birth space or they are getting their annual photos updated is a true gift. That is why I am so glad you're here. And I hope to have to opportunity to work with you.
how it started
Being apart of your birth space is so much more than just taking a photo. I want you to be able to relive the moment you welcome your sweet baby into the world. Allow me to photograph that special moment for you. From the first positive pregnancy test to your baby's first cry.
Three years ago I had the honor of photographing my very first birth story. It changed my life forever. As a woman who has struggled with infertility for four years, birth photography became a healing experience for me. Many of the families I get to follow along this journey have similar stories to mine. Photographing your birth to me is so much more than just capturing a photo in time. It’s telling your story!
Every story is different and important, that is why I make it my priority to capture the whole experience for you. From the first positive pregnancy test to the day you birth your sweet baby into this world.
