Editor in Chief / Creative Director and Photographer
“Hi, my name is Valerie and I have always had a love and passion for photography.
I love getting an idea for a shoot or graphic design and letting my creativity flow. It is so much fun to see a vision come together. When you are planning a photo shoot, you get complete creative control of how you want it to look. From the location, to clothes and models, you get to decide. It's what I love to do; I get excited and can't wait to see the end product. Working with kids is amazing; they are always so in the moment and are usually up to try something new.
I have been published for my photography & for my graphic designs.
I absolutely love doing both, and could never choose one over the other. ”
As a child, my passions were styling my collection of Barbie dolls with different outfits’, accessories & hairstyles… sketching and planning, organizing and writing about their looks for the day! I guess all this translated to what I am doing now; I’m an account executive for a bridal and fashion diamond company and love the collection of diamonds and semi-precious stones that are merchandised from sketch to end product! On the other half of my career, I’ve built Youngstrs Kids Fashion Magazine to create a magazine for moms, children, designers, buyers, photographers and models to showcase the latest in trending and up and coming fashion!! I apply my wardrobe stylings skills, passion for fashion, and vision to produce creative editorials and projects that our Youngstrs team works on. It’s been an exciting adventure to build this magazine along with a group of dedicated, creative, artistic and talented staff!
