This is me. I'm Valerie, formally known as Valerie (Betz) Creitz , but I'll even answer to Val.
I'm a 30-something natural light loving lifestyle photographer, specializing in portrait and boudoir photography. Photography is my vice but i have a love for all arts, from drawing and painting, to graffiti and live music. I pride myself on documenting authentic moments full of emotion and personality.
I'm also a marketing professional and I think it's a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together and there is a seamless concinnity in marketing and photography. That's why I also like to partner with small businesses and professionals. There is power in the art of branding through photography and content whether it is in print or in online marketing. I like to leverage photography and marketing to make a difference.
More than just business.
I'm an everyday woman. I'm a mom (a bereaved one too), a non-profit board member, a diy-er, and so much more. I love traveling, live music, lavender and campfires. I love my passion planner (geeky). I'm learning to be gluten-free and dairy-free (tips?) but boy do I love pasta, ice cream, and coffee that's light n' sweet. I pride myself on being a lifelong learner and a yogi-wannabe. I'm also keen on antiques, poetry, equality and diversity, tattoos and symbolism.
