Val's Gals

For the senior who want to make the absolute most out of their senior year.

Val's Gals are seniors who truly want more out of their senior year. This is more than just having your senior photos taken. It is an exciting and unforgettable experience taking place over your whole senior year and the summer leading up to senior year. It is similar to a sorority! A bunch of gals come together to make memories, laugh together, build each other and form life long relationships. They focus on spreading kindness, encouraging others and growing in confidence. 

Applications for 2022 Val's Gals will open November of 2020

"Captivating... is all I can express! As a Senior parent, my heart is full of pure joy! Looking at what Val has provided for my daughter and for other Senior girls is riveting. Making memories is the key in life and especially at this stage in a young person's life. This will provide reminiscing moments to share for years to come. So, thankful for this opportunity for my daughter and others." - Jill (Avery's mom)

"My daughter (Pauline) was the one who originally found Valerie. After I looked at her amazing work we decided to work with her. And it was an amazing decision. Valerie really knows what she is doing. Once we started planning the session we could really see how much she cared. When my daughter's session was over she couldn't stop talking about how much fun she had. Which surprised me since she has never been one who enjoys having her pictures taken. It really showed how much Val makes people feel comfortable. When I saw my daughters sneak peek I was completely speechless. It was so beautiful and stunning. Senior year is a very important year to capture. And I would absolutely recommend that you have Val help capture it." - Charlene Oropesa (Pauline's mom)

Let's chat details!

Joining Val's Gals includes perks similiar to those listed below! Some minor changes may change from year to year.

 MINI SESSION

Each Val's Gal will receive a mini session! This is a short little session with one outfit and one location. This kicks off the start of your Val's Gals experience. We get to meet, I get to meet your parent(s), I get to learn all about you and your interest and hobbies, I walk you through posing and teach you all the things! You will gain confidence in front of the camera that will set you up for success for the rest of the year and beyond! Val's Gals receive complimentary makeup application from one of my preferred makeup artist for their mini session and virtual wardrobe styling from professional stylist, Style by Elle.

All Val's Gals are invited to participate in group photo sessions! There are multiple group sessions scheduled throughout the year. Sometimes these group sessions have fun themes (boho, 90s, Denim, etc.) and sometimes they are based around the season. At these group sessions each girl gets time in front of the camera for individual photos plus we take group and smaller group photos as well! The images below are from a group shoot using colored powder like they do in color runs!

GROUP SESSIONS

POP-UP SESSIONS

Pop-up sessions mean bonus photos! We can't plan when the first sunflower field will bloom or when it will snow (and actually stick!), but we can run out the next day and grab beautiful photos! Pop-up sessions cannot be planned because they are either either or event related and happen suddenly. All the Val's Gals have access to these spontaneous sessions and these are in addition to our normally planned group sessions.
