I have dreaded getting new business headshots and had put it off for over a year. When I shared my anxiety with colleagues and asked them for referrals, they all told me that Valari was the photographer for me. She is down to earth, easy to talk to, and she explained the process so it wasn't so intimidating. She had Angela, a talented hair and makeup artist, there for me, and she took my lead as to what made me comfortable. Valari further alleviated any self-consciousness I was feeling by explaining the reasoning behind the poses she suggested. If you hire Valari, just do what she tells you and don't question it. The results are flattering photos that capture the true look in your eyes, smile, and in the way you carry yourself. I highly recommend Valari's services!
