As a mom and a grandmother, aka Nonnie myself, I know how priceless the photos of your newborn are. Tiny toes, belly rolls and their sweet little nose, every tiny detail counts. I would love to capture and preserve these memories for you to enjoy long after they grow.


1. REVIEW THE PRICING: Please be sure to review investment guide with your partner before booking a session. This is an investment and I want to be sure all decision-makers are involved.

2. RESERVE THE DATE: Choose your due date on the online calendar Please notify us as soon as baby is born so we can adjust your date. (newborns photographed between 7-21 days).

“I’ve been working with Valerie for random projects since about 2011. She’s such a sweet person and very easy to work with. She was so patient when trying to get pictures with my dog and recently while taking my daughter’s newborn pictures (even when we had a major diaper blow out lol). Very highly recommend Portraits by Valerie!!!!” Jessica Humphries

“Valerie is amazing! She has done maternity, newborn, family, and boudoir pictures for me and she is nothing short of fantastic. She’s friendly and professional and somehow always gets great shots of my not very photogenic family!”  Kayla Sollers
