Behind the lens


 Hello and thanks so much for looking at my site! My name is Valarie Gatti.  I am a mother of four and Registered Nurse in the Medical ICU of a busy Stark County hospital.   My love for photography started when my kids came along.  I was forever looking for a photographer who could capture them doing what they do best, being kids.  I wanted someone who could capture their personalities and their natural interaction with each other and the world around them.  I decided who better to do that than myself!  It started with me photographing my own kids, then I started to recruit my family and friends.  One thing led to another... and well here I am a decade later working casual part time at the hospital and booking up months in advance!  I never thought that I would do anything else other than nursing, but when I fell into this profession, it felt right. 
   Thank you for taking the time to look at my website!  I hope you enjoy what you find and would love the opportunity to photograph your family.  Find me on facebook and "like" me for updates, sales, recent works and special session bookings!
