First Portraits for Chloe Are In!

Here are the first portraits that were done as part of the benefit for Chloe. I’m going to add more as I get them done.

UPDATE: People have been interested in Christmas cards, so I put up a gallery of the card templates that I have. This gallery will be easiest to view over a high-speed connection. My apologies to any dial-up users. There is also a card I did yesterday in the gallery in this post.

Portraits for Chloe–A Benefit


I am doing a benefit fundraiser for Chloe Korson, the daughter of a close friend in Lansing, MI. Chloe is an amazing 2-year-old who has been diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1 and given a fatal prognosis. She has a tremendous will to live and is actually recovering, defying the prognosis she was initially given. Her family’s faith has been an inspiration to me and I’m just trying to give something back.

Read about Chloe’s journey at

Portraits are on-location or at your home.
Minimum donation: $40 for first custom-edited image, $10 for each additional image.
Archival Prints are at cost.

All proceeds will go directly to Chloe’s family.

If you want to be part of the miracle, drop me a line in the form below and I’ll schedule a portrait session with you.

Pledge amount so far: $520

UPDATE: Erica Spencer will be taking pictures for Chloe in the Lansing area in December 2007. She is a fantastic photographer so this is a great, win-win opportunity. SIGN UP NOW by filling out this form.

About Valerie Robinson

You’ve stumbled onto the portfolio of Valerie Robinson, a portrait photographer who specializes in custom-edited art images. I use mostly natural light and like to emphasize people’s eyes starting with carefully chosen lighting and in-camera mechanics and then by artistically finishing each image by hand digitally.

I moved into photography after starting my career working with language as an editor. Inspired by my own children, I chose to focus on portraits of babies, children, and families. My first full-time job is to stay at home while my children are young, but I do 1 to 2 portrait sessions a month upon request.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop a suggestion or comment!
