Luci’s creative input during the planning stages of this project was invaluable. I didn’t have a final end product in mind, but she offered a number of possible directions to go in and included sample images to help me decide.

My college daughter and I were excited to schedule a headshot session with Luci Valentine during Spring Break 2020. We didn't know it, but that Spring Break session was a few days before the shelter in place started due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Despite the extra layer of uncertainty we all felt, Luci created a warm and supportive experience for the both of us. Her attention to detail and consideration of giving us her best during the session were significant."

"We are so pleased with the photos and highly recommend her as a photographer.

Luci took amazing headshots of my son. She was very good at communication with us ahead of time, and made my son so comfortable during the shoot. She gave him good direction and suggestions which resulted in really great variety for us to choose from."

"Luci is very professional and has a great personality which allows you to feel confident and relaxed.

stefani

I needed a professional headshot—the one taken of me by my company is horrible and accompanies every internal email I send. I am notoriously un-photogenic, especially in posed photos, but I trusted that Luci would manage to get a couple that I wouldn’t cringe at every time I saw them. She worked quickly and was indeed able to capture some good photos of me."

"I am thrilled to have a headshot I feel good about. 

Tyree

I knew I could trust her to take some decent headshots. What I didn’t expect was the precise yet creative approach to our photo session. I was able to relax and focus on her instructions that were given with kind clarity. I am completely satisfied and I'm sure you will be too."

"I highly recommend Luci Valentine Photography for professional headshots and visual art production.

Shae

The results were amazing, Luci has a great eye for photography and could see me. I had plenty of great photographs to pick from. The session was so easy and Luci is incredibly precise, efficient and professional. I highly recommend Luci for professional and personal photos, you won't be disappointed."

"I love Luci! I always thought I was not photogenic, until I worked with Luci.
