 Boldly Natural Imagery   FOR COURAGEOUSLY CURIOUS AND COMPASSIONATE LOVERS

This is a story of liberation told in color; a legacy of resilience that began with our ancestors and lives on through us. It is a tale of triumph for BIPOC cultures who persevered despite being underestimated, marginalized and silenced…

BEHIND THE CAMERA

SEEKING TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE WORLD

rooted in honesty, gratitude, adventure, and purpose

You can call me Val.

I'm a Bay Area portrait and wedding photographer.

If you're like me, you believe every person has a meaningful story to share, connections to make, trust to build, love to give, and inner light waiting to shine.

What excites me most about freezing time - with the intentional click of a shutter - is that you will see your vibrant light shine too. You will relive your joyous memories over and over again in true, natural color. You will transform 

the memories we capture together into meaningful stories cherished by your growing family for years to come. You will be the one who changes your family story. YOU will be the one they fondly remember.
