Hi there! Thanks for visiting my website. I am the artist behind the lens, Veronica VanGessel, a professional photographer based in Alexandria/Pineville, La. There are so many things in my life that have inspired my creativity, passion, and talent behind my photography. I’m the mother to one very talented and amazing little boy. My family is my world, and what showed me my passion for photography.. and without God, opening the doors that he did at just the right season in my life I would not be where I am today. God has allowed me to use my gifts, to help people and empower women from all over and I thank God every day for what he has done in my life.
My family has always been, and continues to be, my biggest fans and supporters. Without the strength and encouragement from my loved ones, I never would’ve made it this far. My amazing family, friends, and clients only make the dreams and goals I have set for myself possible. I’m truly surrounded by the best support system imaginable. I have a passion for love, life, and laughter. I love capturing the every day moments between families, children, friends, and lovers. It’s these moments that we want to freeze in time and never lose sight of. I photograph a variety of things, from family, boudoir, weddings, and engagements!
With each session that I photograph I want to create a timeless masterpiece for my clients. My goal is to freeze that moment in time, capturing those little things we so often take for granted. As you look through my portfolio you will see joy, laughter, and love. I become so connected with my clients I feel as if we’ve become a family after our session. When I sit in my office and edit images from sessions, I can’t help but have a smile on my face, knowing that my art is going to warm someone’s soul, and touch their heart in so many ways.
I photograph every portrait session personally. I provide you with the individual attention that you and your family need to create a timeless masterpiece to cherish forever. You will not feel rushed, or pushed through a “system.” I treat every client like they are my family. I’m just an email, phone call, or text message away, answering questions and giving suggestions along the way.
Well, that's me -
Now that you know who I am and what I'm about, let's chat about your wedding day, due date, or children! If you find magic in the ordinary and authentic, unconditional love is your jam, I'm your girl. I'm dying to hear from you!
