Valerie Rosas is a Los Angeles-based photographer. Her journey with photography started with a trip to the Grand Canyon National Park in 2001. It was there that she discovered her love and passion for photography. Shortly thereafter, she started going to school for photography in Orlando, Florida and continued her studies at Santa Monica College in California where she graduated in 2009.
She started photographing landscape but photographing people candidly is what she truly loves. During her last semester at Santa Monica College, Val began photographing musicians and found a passion in that realm. At the beginning of 2010, Val found out she was pregnant and knew that being a music photographer and a mother was not something she could pull off, so she chose to dedicate herself to her family. After the birth of her daughter, Scarlet became the only person Val was interested in photographing. In 2013, Val started a placenta encapsulation business and has been using her photography skills to photograph placentas and the artwork that she makes from working with placentas.
In August 2019, Val started feeling the spark of wanting to get behind the camera once again, this time capturing the portrait of new life….. the newborn! She is excited to provide families with the treasure of baby’s first images to be cherished for a lifetime and beyond.
Fun things to know about Val…..she is dedicated to her husband and her daughter, and is completely obsessed with placenta, pockets, glass & cork (together), and empowering women.
