Jim Stopher: "Highly recommended!"

"Valentina is great!  She is easy to work with, friendly, and professional.  Her session is nicely organized, with opportunities to review and adjust -- but it's also efficient and to the point.  And on top of that, the process of booking a session couldn't be simpler!  Highly recommended!"

"It takes a true talent of the photographer not only to create beautiful portraits but also to be able to capture and bring out the inner essence of personality.
This is exactly what I was searching for while choosing professional headshot photographer. Not only I was impressed by her immense creativity and vibrant nature, but also by her ability to understand my vision and what I was trying to accomplish.
With her professional touch and guidance, I was able to relax and have fun in front of the camera. With each click, I felt a little loose, allowing my true personality shine. The beauty of Valentina's work is that you don't have to say much, for it brilliantly speaks for itself!"

"This was my first time working with Valentina, and I was extremely impressed. She was flexible with her schedule, friendly and inviting, and most of all, very talented. I am a professional opera singer, and she knew exactly what kind of aesthetic I was going for with my headshots without me explaining a thing. She gave great direction during the shoot and asked just the right questions to help me put more intention behind my expressions and poses. My friends and family are as thrilled with the results as I am. I highly recommend Valentina!"

Alexandra Sessler: "Working with Valentina is truly a joy!"

“Working with Valentina is truly a joy! I get camera-shy and lose confidence easily during photo shoots, and she always manages to make me feel comfortable and help me take photos that I feel really proud of. I’ve worked with Valentina twice, and know that I will again!”

"Valentina is an absolute genius when it comes to headshot and portrait photography! As a professional opera singer, my headshots, portraiture, and publicity photos are extremely important for my image and my business, which is why I return again and again to Valentina's studio every time I need new images. Valentina has a sparkling personality that immediately puts you at ease, and her attention to detail and fantastic eye makes every session super easy and fun. I'm always amazed at the beauty and compositional excellence in all of her work and the ease with which she gets incredible results. She knows exactly how to coach her clients to look better in front of the camera than they ever imagined they could. The hardest part of the process is narrowing down all the great shots and choosing favorites!"

"Valentina is AMAZING. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and welcoming. I have always considered myself to be not very photogenic, but let me tell you, those days are over. She had great energy, really listened to what I wanted, and had great ideas. These shots are true to who you are and what you really look like! and they will get you noticed, which ultimately makes you money! The return on investment is never ending! I am more than thankful for the work Valentina provided me with and I am hoping to work with her again in the near future."

Bastian Sascha Schmidt: "The end product exceeded my expectations by far"

"Valentina was such a pleasure to work with. I have an acupuncture practice and needed headshots as well as shots of my clinic. I'm so glad I chose Valentina for the job. She is very warm and welcoming, and she made a camera shy person like me feel very much at ease. The process of picking my favorite shots was very painless and the end product exceeded my expectations by far. I would recommend Valentina to anyone seeking a skilled and personable photographer and she gets my highest recommendation!"

"Working with Valentina was not only a great experience because she's so easy to get along with and is an incredibly talented artist but because it was, in a way, empowering. I know it sounds silly but while in our session her rapport made everything positive and NOT awkward and her words (and sneak peek photos) made me feel beautiful -- when she showed me a photo she had just taken I literally said "is that ME?!" In an environment where I normally feel awkward, I felt comfortable in my own skin. Valentina is a magician and a master behind the camera and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Valentina!!!"

"Valentina is an amazing artist and true professional.  The session was so much fun and she made me feel comfortable by coaching through the session on pose, posture, and expression.
I am a professional Opera Singer and she asked me about the types of roles I will sing.  Since most of my roles are very regal, we focused on creating that type of image. I'm thrilled with the results. There were too many great shots to choose from!"
