About me

Portrait Photographer in San Diego
Valeria Alkan


I am a San Diego based photographer specializing in newborn, maternity and family photography.

I take photos of things I’m afraid to forget, of things that are important to me at this moment in time. I document life because I hope that someday my children will look at my photos and understand just how deeply I loved them every single day, in every detail, in every way. I find joy in helping my clients capture their own memories. I create natural portraits and true emotional connections because I feel it is important for us all to remember not only how we looked, but how we were.  I hope my voice resonates with all mothers whose children are growing and changing far too quickly, with all people who find magic in everyday.

My passion for newborn photography started a little before my son was born. I think that capturing babies in the beginning of their life is so important because they change each and every day in their first month. When years will pass, and they are all grown up, you will have these precious photographs to take you back in time.
