Stunningly Beautiful.

Documentary and Storytelling Photography for Families

Photograph your family as they are right now, before these moments pass you by.

The birth of your newest family member deserves to be photographed.

Embracing the beauty in everyday life.

In a world where it seems like everyone else is “Pinterest Perfect,” it’s easy to feel less than. But life isn’t perfect. In fact, it’s messy, beautiful, and everything in between. My work offers an alternative to traditional family portraits for families who value authenticity and believe in celebrating their everyday moments.

A documentary session is a laid-back (no posing required!) approach to the typical family photo. It provides you with meaningful imagery of the moments most important to you. After all, the perfect photo is not about what you wear or the props used,  it’s about how it makes you feel.

I want you to leave each session feeling accepted and appreciated for who you are; no prerequisites required. 

Real life after all, is a masterpiece; let’s treat it that way.

“I don’t really think either one of us realized what a gift these pictures would be. Just to have a snapshot of our messy, tired, amazing life is wonderful.” 

— Teresa, Mom of 2

Life goes by quickly, it’s happening right before your eyes

Preserve it with timeless photos of your most cherished moments 

“I don’t really think either one of us realized what a gift these pictures would be. Just to have a snapshot of our messy, tired, amazing life is wonderful.”
“The entire process was great. Getting to know Gabi was great and watching my kids become super comfortable around her and be their normal, silly selves allowed her to take pictures I will treasure forever!”
“I was surprised by how fast the time went and how natural it felt to have Gabi in our home. We went on with our typical day and she just snuck in there to capture moments in time”
“Best decision of my life to hire Gabriella and document the little moments with our family. As a mom, we are so busy multi-tasking and taking care of everyone that we forget to stop and enjoy the moment. These pictures captured how truly awesome my life is!”
“I loved how natural the session was and also how effortless it was on my part and my family. It really wasn’t a big deal and it was so fun.”
“Gabriella is a wonderful photographer and captured exactly what we wanted, our family as we are—not staged.”
“The experience was like no other. The photos are real. Your family in real-time, doing real things. Amazing and Unique”
“Gabriella is a must. She is super-friendly and almost magical with a camera. She takes an everyday moment that seems so insignificant at the time and turns it into a beautiful memory with a simple click.”
“Gabi captures real life and all the moments that don’t show in a family portrait session. I wish my parents had done something like this when we were kids. It is the perfect chance to show your kids in the future what life was like when they were little.”
“A session with Gabi is so much easier than a typical family portrait session because you just go on with your life and even if you don’t think the she’ll get a ‘good’ shot, you will be pleasantly surprised when you see the proofs. You will have so much more than a ‘good shot’. You will have a moment in time captured forever.”
“You won’t regret having your family captured in their natural environment”
“You will see pictures of little moments that you experience everyday, but will forget over the years. In 10 years, these pictures will be truly priceless.”
“It’s fun. You don’t need to do a thing except be your true and authentic self. Gabi makes you very comfortable and it’s an enjoyable experience all around.”
