Hi, I’m Valette

I believe that beauty is internal calm, confidence, and loving myself for who I am and where I am at in my life journey. Beauty is kindness and gentleness to myself and others. Beauty is believing I am worthy.

I believe that all women deserve to look and feel beautiful, and are worth having gorgeous photos of themselves. Women deserve to exist in photos for themselves and for those who love them.

I have been photographing Alaskan women for over 5 years, showing them how beautiful and worthy they are.

When was the last time you felt beautiful?

When you book a contemporary portrait session with me, I’ll guide you through the entire process, start to finish.

We can meet over coffee or over the phone for a consultation, during which we will discuss how you’d love to be photographed. This includes hair and makeup styling options and tips on what to wear. I am available by phone or text message any time between your consultation and your photo shoot to give opinions on outfits and to answer all of your questions.

On the day of your portrait session, we will go through the outfits you brought and map out your session plan together. You will be pampered for about an hour with a professional hair and makeup stylist. And then I will guide you through flattering poses and movements to capture your most beautiful self.

About a week after your shoot we will meet for your image reveal. This is the big moment where you get to see and hold all of your final images and decide which ones you will be taking home.

I guarantee you will love your images.

Sessions are $290 and include professional hair and makeup styling. Single images start at $200, folio collections start at $1200, and all images you purchase include high resolution digital files.
