I am so thankful that I found a wonderful photographer like Valerie.  My experience with her was unforgettable.  I had so much fun and would love to work with her again!  My photos turned out more than perfect.  Thank you so much, Valerie, for making my senior photos the best!   ~  Lauren L.

Thank you Valerie for making my daughter’s Senior Picture experience one to remember.  You sat with Lauren and took the time to get to know her and really talk about what she expected from her photo session.  She felt confident and sure of herself on the day of the session, and in turn you took some beautiful photos of her.  Thank you again for your time and energy.  You made sure the day was about Lauren and that was much appreciated.  I also appreciate how flexible you were with YOUR time and we never felt rushed during the process.  You made us both feel at ease.  Again thank you for the beautiful photos and Memory Book, her Dad was so impressed and that can be a difficult task!  ~  Mikki L.  Keller, TX



“Working with Mrs. Jirik has been so fun!  Her amazing photography skills, coupled with a great, easy to get along with personality, really made my senior pictures an experience I’ll never forget.  It’s been amazing modeling for her.”  -Caitlin

“Valerie is a joy to work with.  She really listens to what you want and makes it come to life in pictures.  I absolutely love the photos she took of my daughter!”   -Beth Smith



Shopping for a photographer to use for our son’s senior pictures is something we were unsure about.  Valerie has taken great pictures of our children over the years at choir events, with excellent results.  She asked if we would be interested in using her services on Trey’s senior photo’s.  We spent over 5 hours with her at her home studio and at an off-site location at Lake Grapevine along the rocky beach.  My son really wasn’t sure what to expect, and didn’t think it would be exciting.  After about 15 minutes of changing clothes and her showing him a preview of what the picture would look like, he really got into the shoot.  We had a great time and Valerie was very easy to work with and made it a fun and memorable day.  We are so impressed with the quality of the pictures and the personality that shows in the expressions we wanted to capture.  She really has a great eye for color and design and we couldn’t be more pleased about the outcome of these forever keepsakes. Thanks Valerie!   ~ Rena Wierdsma



We just LOVE our daughter’s senior portraits!  Sierra felt like a real model during her session and we just loved the experience!   When Sierra saw her pictures for the first time in a slide show in Valerie’s studio, her face just lit up and she was beaming!  It was a priceless moment and I wish I had taken a picture of her and Valerie at that time.  I think that was the highlight for me of Sierra’s senior year so far.  Valerie made the whole experience fun and easy, with no pressure what-so-ever.  She really knows her business and knows what she is doing.  I have recommended her to all my friends.

Senior pictures are so fun to have!! When I had mine done I’m so glad Valerie Jirik was there to take them!!
She made it fun from beginning-choosing the outfits, jewelry, shoes, etc-to end- choosing pictures, editing, and all the other fun picture stuff! We had so much fun!

It was awesome to have someone tell me what to do, how I stand, etc., but still be open to my opinion. Sometimes it seems it’s one way or the other but she was great!

So if you’re looking to have senior or any other pictures taken, she’s amazing and I’m so grateful for her!!  ~  Heather



Valerie at VJ Photography did such an amazing job on our family portrait. We decided to incorporate the natural outdoors into our portrait instead of the typical backdrop used in studios. Valerie met us at our desired location, our backyard pool waterfall, and determined the best time of day with the sun pattern to get the best pictures possible. Then we made an appointment for this exact perfect timing. Valerie took numerous shots and poses to be sure to get the perfect shot. We were even able to include our family pet. Valerie has a natural eye for positioning that adds character to the photos. We are extremely pleased with the services and portraits we received from VJ Photography and we can’t recommend them enough for pictures of any kind including senior photos and Christmas photo cards.
