Roxanne Herres – Owner of Sunnvalley

I am a photographer and media designer and the owner of Sunnvalley.  I have always lived in Northern New Hampshire.  I enjoy all four seasons in New Hampshire but also love to travel the country when I can.

I come from a long line of entrepreneurs. When I was growing up, I knew I wanted to have my own business some day.

My husband is my high school sweetheart.  While we were dating, I was working and pursuing my computer science degree. After we got married, we built a house and started a family while I worked at The Balsams as an executive administrator and IT administrator.  Once I had my second child, we decided it made more sense for me to stay home.  I told everyone at my job that I was getting done and starting my own business.  I am pretty sure they thought I had lost my mind! 

I began building websites for small businesses in the area.  I saved up enough money to buy a nice camera.  One day I was asked to take some photos for a friend.  She showed them to everyone!  Immediately I started getting requests to do more photos.  One request came from a preschool.   The preschool wanted studio style portraits.  I had never done that before, so I researched it, bought some equipment, and practiced on my kids!    

As my business continued to grow, I moved my business from a small bedroom in our home to larger renovated studio space on the ground floor of our home, with its own entrance and parking. We also built a new changing room, and created direct access to a 1/2 bathroom. Since then I have upgraded my cameras, lighting, and props. I hired a professional landscaper to create a new plan the outside. We will be implementing more of this plan in 2022.

As my kids got older and more independent, I decided to pursue a BA Graphic Design & Media Art degree which included photography, web design, and graphic design.   I learned about techniques, trends, and software, but also gained experience as a designer and photographer. 

The photography and media design industries are constantly changing. One of the things I most love about this is that I get to continue to learn about new techniques and ideas and apply it to my designs, photo sessions, and editing.
