Hi there, it’s me, Gabby.

Addicted to coffee, seeker of simplicity, lover of flowers, trees, gardens, words. Never done learning, teaching, growing. Homeschool mama to my three. Daydreamer, planner, teacher, writer, wife, daughter, sister, mother, friend, photographer…human. Let’s share some time together…


My wild darlings,

Let the endless summer always welcome you with it’s warm embrace. Let your feet love on the dew damp grass each morning, and be grateful for this life. May you learn to do what YOU can do, and do it well, with kindness in your heart and the wellspring of joy within you always overflowing. This is my wish for you in this season of life.

My Short Story

Hello! My name is Gabby and I love love. Heart stopping, laugh until you cry, take your breath away, LOVE. The real stuff. I can’t imagine a better job for me at this point in my life. When I'm not out shooting I'm at home teaching and caring for my three littles and enjoying time with my incredible husband and best friend. I am encouraged and inspired by them daily as they serve to remind me that life is precious and not an ounce of time together is to be taken for granted. This October we will celebrate our 7th anniversary and I can honestly say that things get better with time. We recently took the leap and began homeschooling, the routine and extra responsibility treats us well, most days, though it’s definitely an adjustment! My home studio is in Bluff Creek, LA and I currently serve the surrounding areas including New Orleans, the North Shore, Baton Rouge, Natchez, and St. Francisville. I have photographed couples in love in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Texas, Vermont, Wisconsin, Scotland, and soon Virginia (Oct. 2019). I accept a limited number of weddings each year and most of my couples book 8-18 months out, though don’t let that discourage you from reaching out if your wedding is less than 8 months away. I would love to work with you and your family and I look forward to hearing from you! If you’re a coffee addict like I am, let’s get together for a cuppa, my treat!


I’ve got love
