She Prevails is formally known as Val Hardy Photography. I renamed and reconstructed my brand because I felt I needed to get back to the reason I started capturing beautiful memories. Diagnosed with High Functioning Depression and Anxiety, I wanted to find something to keep my mind busy so I wouldn’t have to deal with my illness. I begged my husband for this Nikon camera I saw until he said yes. Going back to my roots and remembering why all of this started is why I changed my name to She Prevails Photography. From then to now I’ve made it my mission to learn as much as possible. Although self-taught, I have managed to go above and beyond what I thought I could do. I taught myself how to edit and am now teaching myself how to use studio lighting. She Prevails is Me and I am it, I have overcome my illness and am still trying to become better. Booking a shoot with She Prevails means booking a lifetime memory. Freezing time….
