"When I was told that I won the Beauty Revealed Photo Session, I was more concern than happy. I thought: "Oh my God, but I am so fat now...but I am so old now... but I am not beautiful any more..." The day of the photo shoot I just surrendered to her. She did it all... She made me feel like the most famous supermodel of the world. It was a great experience. I would do it again, and again, and again..." —Leida Benitez

"Recently I had the pleasure of working with Valerie at her studio in St. Pete. Going into it I let her know right away that she would need to "hold my hand" with each photo she took. As she snapped photos one after the other I trusted her with every pose and facial expression. She gave me a sneak peek a couple of times and I have to say, I was impressed with her work before I even left the studio. I couldn't wait to get back in to see the final shots after she called me to let me know they were ready. I can honestly say that I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to pick out my favorites, but indeed it was. Valerie Saroka did an amazing job with my hair and makeup, highlighting my features and sticking with a comfortable and natural look for me and making me look like a million bucks and then Valerie Bogle followed it up with amazing pictures and poses and bringing out the best in me in every shot. I am not typically very comfortable with being the center of attention but I have to admit that I most certainly felt comfortable that day in the studio and I am thrilled to have been able to have worked with both Valerie's. Thank you so much for my beautiful photos, for making me look beautiful and natural and even sexy in the classiest of ways! It was a wonderful experience:-)" —Eileen Carter

"My photo shoot with Valerie Bogle was so much fun! What a great experience to be treated like a Star with full make up, hair and various outfits. Valerie knew what worked for me better than I did. She made me look fabulous. She has true gift to make women feel comfortable and beautiful and that really shines through in her photographs. Some day soon I'll have her take our family photos on the beach - I know they will be amazing too. Thank you Valerie!!" —Denise Seaman, Careminders

"I did a photo shoot with Valerie last Fall & absolutely LOVED it, even though I normally do not like being photographed... You know how it normally goes when your friends take pictures of you: you don't like your hair, you end up with red eyes, etc... When you use a professional like Valerie, the photo shoot itself is a lot of fun, she is able to capture the essence of who YOU are, making you so comfortable that you forget you are in front of the camera. The end result is a beautiful picture of you. Whether you want a glamour shot, a professional head shot for your website or business cards, and want to capture memorable moments of you with your family on a Saturday morning, Valerie Bogle is the one who can make all this magic happen!! Smile, you are on camera!! :-)" —Isabelle Simon

Highly recommend!" —Mindy Adams

"I hired Valerie to shoot my Lamborghini driving experience last December. Her intent is to be your personal paparazzi and she definitely delivers. I was hoping to get just a few good shots, but she took it to a level I couldn't have imagined. Not only was she was able to get great shots of the cars and of me driving, but she also got great shots of the training class and my wife. The package that she delivered exceeded my wildest expectations and I would recommend Valerie for any important event that you would like professionally documented. The weird thing was that I barely noticed she was there. In short... engage Valerie's services. You will not be disappointed!!!" —Glenn Fisher
