I'm Valerie (Val)
AKA, "The Person Behind The Lens"
I'm a portrait and lifestyle photographer with a love for natural light. I have always had an interest in art and the visual world; I have a degree in Art History from Carleton University.
I believe that getting your photos taken should be easy and fun, so I strive to create that experience in my photo sessions.
One of my favourite parts of being a photographer is getting to meet and get to know interesting people. For me, portrait photography is the art of discovering a person, observing and finding those features that make them so unique and special. On the other side of that process, editing photos is something that I really enjoy that takes an eye for colour and composition.
