PROFESSIONAL Photography

You have a friend who has a nice camera and is willing to take some shots of you and your family. Why should you choose Sunnvalley—and Roxanne—instead?

Roxanne Herres is and award winning, published, professional photographer. She has been the only full time photographer in the area for over 10 years and she has both indoor and outdoor staging areas.

Her indoor studio features professional lighting with more than twenty backdrops, a variety of seating arrangements, and a collection of props, like baskets, antique crates and trunks, blankets, head bands, and flower clips. The Studio also offers mirrored changing areas, hair products, and a steam iron to keep your garments, and you, looking fresh.

Sunnvalley’s outdoor staging areas include a large field, old and new fences, benches, an antique red barn, and beautiful private areas with views of the mountains. The outdoor studio allows for pets, and automobiles to be included in your portraits.

Roxanne’s study of media design, composition, color harmony, and video technology help to enhance the artistry of your portraits. She uses light and shadow, incorporating natural lighting as well as professional soft-boxes and umbrella lighting in the studio, to capture the true essence and personality of her subjects.

Before breaking out the camera, Roxanne takes time to get to know your family during the pre-session consult. During the consult she will answer any questions you have, plan your session, and learn about you. The fun and friendly atmosphere of Sunnvalley Studio makes it easy for you to relax, smile, and have your best qualities memorialized.

Once your session has taken place, Roxanne uses the latest technologies in photo editing software to give your images the best possible finish (eyes, skin, hair, clothing, backgrounds, exposures, coloring, and cropping). She has extensive experience composing photos with additional graphics such as falling leaves, falling snow, or multiple images.

Sunnvalley uses only the best available print options. Roxanne takes pride in more than just the composition of her photographs. She wants your printed portraits to last as long as the memories that come with them. Small print orders are completed with archival papers and inks. Larger orders are aligned with only the best print labs in the industry.

Sunnvalley Studio is open five days a week, with appointments available during after-hours. We offer a Referral Loyalty Program and monthly and seasonal specials.

Roxanne’s prices are reasonable; she states “I charge what I would be willing to pay” and she delivers.

Because you can never get this time back, because your portraits should capture your personality and lifestyle, and because you want images that you can cherish for a lifetime—these are the reasons you want to hire the best at Sunnvalley Studio.
