I'm Valerie Holifield, as I'm sure you've guessed by now, and I currently live in Ste. Genevieve, MO, oldest settlement West of the mighty and muddy Mississippi. I've been married to Stephen for almost 14 years now and we have two beautiful children, Elijah and Kayleigh.
I have been interested in photography since I was 6 years old and I got my first little 110 film camera as a birthday present. I was often told to quit wasting film on things like inanimate objects and Dutch angles. It's a good thing that on the 8th day, God created digital cameras.
I started designing websites in the late 90's and have always had some sort of photography portfolio online since then. If nothing else, it's just fun to put it all out there in an organized manner. I am always looking to improve and really enjoy my own personal learning process.
Sometime around the time I got married, I started developing a bigger interest in portrait photography. In the years that have followed, I've done a lot of different type of work from newborns to product photography. I think I hate product photography. I seem to keep coming back to my first love, people portraits is where it's at.
Take a look around, enjoy yourself and send me a message, if you like. :)
