Get to know your Instructor:

"Hey there my name is Jessica with Jessica Vallia Photography. I am Colorado born & raised as are 3 of my 4 kiddos! We had our fourth on a military assignment in Texas but are nestled happily into Colorado Springs. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a salamander as well! I am trying come up with interesting facts but basically I like to edit by day and watch The Office or Parks & Rec at night! I am utterly terrified of frogs, ladybugs, and butterflies equally.

Being a busy mom of kids aged 16, 10, 9, & 4 years old naturally families are where my heart is (for now). I adore family stories and unique bonds. We have a blended family ourselves. Our two older (16 & 10) are from other marriages. My son's father & I (and our new spouses) raise all of our kids as siblings the best we can from the east coast to Colorado, we wouldn't have it any other way! It is one of my inspirations when I am capturing a family story. Someday we hope to have our own unique portrait taken with everyone in the same frame.

I am working towards my Master Photographer & Master Craftsman (teaching) degrees with Professional Photographers of America and LOVE competing on an international level! I cannot wait to share how I process my images with you all in Summerana, it's such an inspiring community!"
