Hello!  

My name is Jaime Valcanas . I have had a passion for photography since I can remember. Even as a child, I always had a camera with me.. it may have been a teal-colored “Le Clic” disk camera but I always had one (look it up- it’s a real thing- I promise)! 

I attended Fitchburg State College and graduated with a degree in Communications/ Media and a concentration in Photography. Finally in 2015 I decided to start my business.

My favorite subjects to photograph are children- I love capturing their innocence and curiosity. I feel that the candid moments are the most exciting to capture however, I also know how important a good portrait is. I always try to get a little bit of both in every session. Most importantly I want to capture my subjects true personality… and have some fun while doing just that! 

I live in Southern, NH with my boyfriend and 2 crazy Lab/Hound pups: Stella & Bode!

A few facts about me…

*Traveling is one of my favorite things to do… but I don’t do it nearly enough

*I love to laugh (until my belly hurts) .. and to make others laugh as well- even if it is at my own expense (spoiler… it usually is)

*I equally love Italian & Mexican food…… and all things chocolate!

*Green is my favorite color……… orange is a close second

*As a kid I truly believed I would someday be a famous actress ….

*I am a sucker for a good Rom-Com or Sci-Fi flick. I’m also a bit of a Harry Potter geek

*Ghost shows are right up there with my favorite genres to watch— as well as HGTV (I mean who doesn’t love Chip & Joanna Gaines)?

*I’m an absolute F-R-I-E-N-D-S junkie….

*I love all sorts of music …but cannot sing or play an instrument to save my life …

*I’m an animal lover and I can’t understand how anyone cannot be

*As much as I love the ocean and beaches…. Lakes & Mountains are my happy place

*Since I can remember I’ve had a slight obsession with all things celestial… hence my business name

*Autumn is by far my favorite time of year…. crisp air, trees in full color, the sounds of crunching leaves under my feet, pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins and most importantly…… Halloween! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
