    This week I'm chatting with Valerie Schoenfeld.
    Valerie is a northern Virginia lifestyle photographer and mom to 3 little boys 4 and under. It was after becoming a mom that her love for photography took on a new journey. She  wanted to be able to capture all those fleeting moments and remember each stage of her children’s lives, so she bought her first DSLR camera in the fall of 2015 shortly after her first was born. A new spark was ignited in the spring of 2019 when she took photos for people she had never met in an attempt to save up for a photography course. Little did she know, that decision would bring forth this overpowering sense of joy and creativity that she had been missing for so long since becoming a mother.
    Her passion is for taking lifestyle photos to capture those special moments and connections between families and couples. Her goal is that you smile and find joy in the moments and memories that were made while taking your photos and that they provide a snapshot in time that you will always cherish.

I work full time, I'm a mom, wife, amongst many other things. I've now found a love of photography and the creativity that goes along with that. Thank you Beryl for your inspiration, honesty, and for teaching me to go after my creative pursuits, which is truly just what I needed.
