I met Valerie at the fair, as she was one of the dairy princesses handing out the ice cream samples at the Humboldt Creamery booth that was next to ours. Valerie impressed me by staying cheerful throughout the fair, something I sure wasn’t able to do. She wanted us to do her senior portrait up at her parent’s ranch in Kneeland so I took the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to KLR up there. At the fair Valerie was very girly, always wearing nice dresses. At her ranch, she was wearing camo’s and had just come back from shooting a buck. Quite a different image. Well the ranch was very pretty, and when we went back today to take the portraits, this was one of my favorite locations that Valerie picked out.
