Defining Image Photographs has been in business since 2007. It is our mission to create beautiful and lasting memories for you. We are not just in the picture business, we are in the people business. Our mission is to exceed your expectations resulting in you becoming our lifelong client and advocate.
Since 2007 Valerie has attended countless classes and seminars on business and photography techniques.
In 2012 she attended the Evergreen School of Professional Photography to stay current with todays ever changing photographic trends. There she learned new and exciting techniques from the renowned instructor, Bry Cox. She continues to follow and learn from him even today.
Some of her accomplishments include: Winning the cover of the 2009 PDC Phone book in the Olympia area. Her image was chosen for it's unique perspective.
In 2012 Valerie was awarded the cover of the Olympia area Yellow-book, with a photograph of the boats in the harbor.
In 2009 she started entering prints at the professional level competing against other professionals. The first year she entered 3 prints and they all received awards.
Years, 2010 and 2011 were much the same. Prints were entered and awarded.
In 2012 she entered her work, as she did in the prior years. This year, however, was amazing! She was awarded the honor of "BEST PORTRAIT of a CHILD" with her image titled "Innocence of an Angel."
Valerie volunteers in her community. She is involved with "A Family for Every Child" Here she photographs children that are in need of finding their forever families. This is something that is very dear to her heart.
Valerie also mentors high school seniors that have a passion for photography!
We have raised the BAR! Expect great things from us. We do what we do, because our desire and passion for creating memories for you is what we strive for.
