There’s just one word to sum up this session, FUN!

I met up with the L family this morning for some family photos. When Brandi hired me and let me know she was interested in some more lifestyle pictures of their boys in the pool I almost squealed! It was definitely something new for me, but I absolutely loved it.


We stared at the park and ended at their home. L family, enjoy your sneak peek!

Brandi: Thank you so much. These came out great! I can't wait to see the rest of them!

I met sweet S today at 10 days old for his photo session. He put up a little bit of a fight going to sleep, but once he was asleep, he was OUT! M family, thanks for having me over! Congrats on boy #2, I cannot wait to show you your gallery.

Yes, that’s my little boy running across the pier in the yellow shirt! : )

Brandy: These came out fabulous.

Sara Barron: Valerie you look so beautiful! Great pics!

Francine Valenzuela: Can't wait to meet Bubba!

ig: Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It will always be interesting to read through content from other authors and practice something from their sites.

I seriously have the best clients. Lisette and Andrew were referred to me  by a former client. Word of mouth seriously helps my business grow so much and I am happy my clients are so generous with their referrals.

Lisette and Andrew were so photogenic, and I could not get over how tiny her bump was! She’s due just one month from now and looks amazing.

Congrats on your little one on her way, I cannot wait to meet her!

Jessica Cabrera: Lisette and Andy you look amazing. Great job Valerie!

mina tapia: very cute couple... beautiful pictures...can't wait to meet baby...

ig: Can I just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who actually knows what they're talking about on the web. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular since you surely possess the gift.

I met up with Aundrea bright and early today again for some more maternity photos. We had fun exploring around Prado Regional Park in Chino Hills. The grass was SUPER wet, but the M family were troopers.


Here’s a sneak peek from your session, enjoy!

Brandy: Love #2. You captured his happiness, perfectly!

Aundrea M.: Valerie, I love them. Can't wait to see the whole gallery.

I had a great time today hanging out with the B family, and their newest addition, 7 day old Miss S.

She was so good for me, only stopping to eat (which she did plenty of) : )


Sarah, Memo, and Andrew: Enjoy your sneak peek!









I have a feeling this will be dad’s favorite : )
