Karen really takes the time to get to know your senior and it shows in the pictures. Every picture ‘screams’ my daughter's personality. My daughter and I enjoyed both sessions and came away smiling. She made the whole process so comfortable and fun, and we will definitely be coming back to her for family portraits.

Karen, I don't know how else to say this but the pictures you took of my kids seriously made my heart smile. The expressions on their faces truly show how wonderful and special they each are. Thank you so much!

Not only do you capture beautiful pictures, you make it fun.  Brock and Kelly’s senior pictures are amazing.  You go the extra mile to get a great photo, and Brock was work!!  The DVD’s you made were outstanding…… the music and especially the photographs are spectacular. Thank you so much for your creativity, talent, and genuine passion for your work.

You really know when the spirit of someone is captured in a photograph when the pictures bring TEARS to your eyes!!! Karen is an AMAZING photographer. You will NEVER be disappointed in choosing VALLEY  VISIONS   PHOTOGRAPHY!

Karen didn’t just take Alyssa’s senior pictures, she made the portraits all about Alyssa.  She wanted to go wherever Alyssa wanted to try and put a lot of time and effort into every single picture she took!  I recommend her to anyone who has a senior.  She really did an amazing job and we will be going back again!  Thank you, Karen!

When we recall our experience, three words come to mind: knowledgeable, flexible and creative. With this being our first newborn session it would have been easy to become frustrated and overwhelmed. However, Karen prepared us for what to expect and put our little one's needs first, making this truly a wonderful experience. We were thoroughly impressed with the finished product!  Karen was able to capture the very essence of Tessa! Karen's creativity during the session and in designing our thank you cards, presented a very personalized experience. Thank you Karen!

When you set up a session with Karen you know you are going to walk away with amazing images.  I have always been very happy with what Karen has captured as she captures the kids’ personalities in that moment in time…these are things you will never get back & I am SOO very happy to have their personalities in print!!!  We have even gone into a session with less than ideal moods & I arrive thinking we will not have anything & we always have a lot of images to choose from.  Karen is so great with kids & THAT is what helps to create great images (besides having a great eye for photography).  She takes the time to connect with the kids so their personalities shine!  We have always been so thankful to have such a wonderful photographer to take our families pictures.

Karen really made the senior picture experience enjoyable for both of my sons.  She was very conscientious about capturing their interests and individual personalities and was willing to go above and beyond to create a look that they were happy with.  As a parent, I appreciated her flexibility in scheduling and ordering.  It was nice to be able to break things up (proofs, wallets, announcements, etc.) to make the financial costs a little more manageable.  You will not be disappointed with Valley Visions!

During the session, Karen worked hard to get the best shots possible, encouraging us to be silly and try all sorts of things. She wasn't afraid to get silly herself, either!   Her experience as a photographer and knowledge of children made us feel confident that we were going to get some great photos, and we were never disappointed.  After previewing the photos online, we had a hard time choosing what to get.  The photos are beautiful, professional, and age-appropriate; they will help us remember our daughter's earliest years in a way that we could never have captured ourselves.

From the moment we got to our session until we were done, Karen made this senior portrait experience a sweet memory that will be with me forever. Karen is very professional and was very calming as we went from site to site getting my daughter's senior portraits that we wanted. Her pictures are second to none and the only problem we had was trying to pic out which ones we wanted because there were so many to choose from.

Karen has photographed my children so many times over the last fifteen years and I can only tell you great things about her work and her.  Starting with the sessions, she takes so much time getting to know my family and making the kids comfortable in her studio and outside.  My kids have so much fun getting their pictures taken!  They are laughing and playing the entire time with Karen.  Not only is the experience wonderful here but the pictures are incredible!  I can't choose between them and ALWAYS need to purchase the whole digital collection because I would feel incomplete without them all.  Karen captures my children as the beautiful little beings that they are and lets others see what I see.”                                

Laura R.

Karen is the most patient photographer we have met. She really takes the time during your session to capture that perfect shot. She has great communication with you before your session so that she knows exactly what you want to get out of your session. If you have children, she is amazing! She knows how to get children to smile while knowing how busy small children are. If you want to capture those once in a lifetime images- go to Karen. You will not be disappointed.
Heidi C.

Karen is an outstanding photographer. She is very dedicated to both her work and her clients and we have had nothing but professional service from her. She is always willing to listen to our thoughts and ideas and will do what it takes to capture the images that we want. She is energetic, fun, and professional and I would recommend her to any of my friends or family.   -PS – We just saw the pictures, and what an AMAZING job you did!!!! These are absolutely priceless!!! You captured exactly who he is in these pictures! So THANK YOU!!!
Crystal M.

Karen was great to work with!  She is very knowledgeable about how to set up for a great shot and gave us suggestions that made the photos even better.  She works to make each session and photograph unique to the individual.  Her knowledge and experience when choosing the wallets, photographs, and products to order was extremely helpful.  She worked to get the most value for the money that you pay.  I am very impressed with the quality of the photographs and was delighted with the composite picture she put together.

Karen, I want you to know that I was extremely happy with all the time you took finding different and unique locations for Cody's senior pictures.  I know when Cody had the idea of having some pictures taken in a warehouse that you had your work cut out for you to try to find a location like that.  You really captured the serious side and the fun side of him.  You also worked a miracle when I didn't like something that was in one of the pictures I loved and asked you if you could try to remove it and you were able to...I couldn't believe it!  Thank you so much Karen for a great first senior picture experience with my oldest child.  I loved the pictures and had a really hard time narrowing my choices, because of course I did not have enough walls in my home to buy all the pictures that I loved.  Thanks again I would recommend you to all my friends.”
Heidi S.

Karen has now done senior pictures for both my girls, and she also did a family session with us.  Let me just say that she is totally amazing at what she does!!  Dealing with each of the personalities of my daughters, and then actually getting family pictures where we were all smiling and looking like we wanted to have our pictures taken is truly a talent.  She puts so much work into making your portraits exactly what you want.  Karen, you never cease to amaze me with your talent!!   THANK YOU KAREN.  

Michele M.

We have had several great experiences with Karen at Valley Visions Photography because she has a great eye for scenery in her outdoor pictures and loves taking real shots of our family in action making the pictures more real life.  Karen is really patient with our four children and brings out a natural smile in all of them.  We all consider her not just our photographer, but she also has become a great friend.  I would recommend her to anyone as she has filled our home with beautiful pictures and great memories of our children growing up.  Thanks Karen!
Sherri B.

Karen made having Jessica’s senior photos taken so EASY!!  She was very accommodating to our needs and thoughts and made it fun and simple to make the session personal.  The shots turned out great and ordering them was a breeze.
Crystal A.

Karen makes the atmosphere so warm and loving when taking newborn pictures! She can capture the most amazing moments and never gives up when the children aren't working the way you would like. I have never gotten a bad picture and when I see the finished image, it brings tears to my eyes because you realize how much your children have grown up over the first year!! I always get such wonderful comments from family and friends about how beautiful my pictures of the kids are!! I wouldn't have anyone else capture the most precious pictures of my beautiful girls! I can't thank her enough for every picture I have on my walls! She is truly an amazing photographer! Thank you, Karen!
