Hello, I'm Heather!

Thanks for taking the time to view my work!

From the moment you become a Vallentyne client, to the delivery of your photos, I will guide you through the entire experience. I love to work with my clients consistently over the years and I hope to hear from you to begin that journey! Simply contact me today and I'll send you the details.


From Engagement to Wedding to Maternity to Newborn & Family Sessions, my specialty is real people, like you.

My photography is not only about beautiful and natural photos, it's about telling your story and getting these precious seconds documented before they disappear.

In 50 years, these photos will be your most treasured and loved possession.

I bring over 15 years photography, directing, and lighting experience to our session, so even if you don't know how to be in front of the camera, I will guide you to capture the most beautiful images. You deserve to work with a photographer who knows how to bring out the best version of yourself and your loved ones in front of the camera. All while composing images that will become art in your home.
