  • Welcome to Jean Valentin Photography

    After serving families in the tri-state area for over 17 years, we decided to stop taking any new engagements.

    I personally am honored that you entrusted me capturing your intimate moments throughout the years. Be it when you started your family, or grow your family and any other moments in between. It was a pleasure meeting all of you and my life feels more enriched by it.

    I will keep this site up for an indefinite time and I will continue to update it with personal projects. This way you can still view and share your images and I get to share my personal photographic endeavors. I hope you’ll still stop by from time to time and say hello.

    From the bottom of my heart, a sincere THANK YOU!

It has become a yearly tradition to capture the Lee family portraits, and I always look forward to it. They are a wonderful family, and the kids are so full of joy. This year they wanted to have a fall session at Longwood Gardens. The reason for the location was because mom was present this time around. In their childhood, they had family portraits done here, and they wanted to reproduce one of the images.Mom with her two boys (brothers) portrait at Longwood Gardens


The happy family …

Don’t you love that smile?

And one of my favorites from the session. Love the contrast between the grandkids’s silliness and grandma’s seriousness.

This image is a (surprise) large portrait on grandma’s wall. I’m sure it will put a smile on her face every time she passes by it.

This was a special birthday celebration: Mike turned 99. His daughter, Debora, gathered many of his friends to celebrate this milestone in his life. You can see the joy of having his friends around him. And since Debora spent a few years in Italy (she is an artist as well and you should check out her paintings), Marzano, a true Italian restaurant, was a natural choice.
