When you want to capture life’s best moments…begin with One Wish.

One Wish Photography is a premier maternity, newborn and family photographer.

Photographing young babies can be challenging but she made us laugh and smile, catching the perfect expressions on my little girl’s face, that I will now be able to cherish forever!
– Kaylee Simenstad

I have never felt more beautiful… I’m not one who tends to stand in front of a camera, and felt very awkward when I got there; that feeling was soon diminished though, by Valerie’s happy, easy-going attitude.

How will you remember today?

What is going on in your life? Are you having a baby? Is your newborn about to celebrate their 1st birthday? Do you wonder where the time went when you look at your children? Has it been years since you had a family photo done? I can help you capture the joy and beauty in your life so you and your family can remember today…Forever.

I’m Valerie, the photographer behind One Wish Photography. My work is done mostly outdoors and I also do studio work in either my home or yours. Whether you want formal portraits, something more casual, or lifestyle photography at your home, I am your go-to photographer!

COVID-19 UPDATE: I am ready with hand sanitizer and mask. I can photograph you and your loved ones from a distance. Let’s talk about what you are comfortable with and the additional precautions you want me to take.

Don’t wait for tomorrow to remember today
