My name is Gabriella. I am a documentary family and wedding photographer based in the South of France in Occitanie, mother of 4 boys, and passionate about documenting the real life. As a child, I spent hours looking at family photos at home or with my grandparents ... I remember the happiness, sitting on the ground, looking at those old photos spread out in front of me. I tried by touching them to imagine the life of my ancestors and searched for the story behind it. Today, I am the photographer who tells the stories of families and it is wonderful.
I got my first camera for my 12th birthday. It was an amazing gift for me. I had always seen my mother take her camera during our holidays or special occasions and make her own photo albums. I was finally going to be able to take photos myself, have them developed, and create my own albums! How much time I spent with my mother choosing the photos, organizing them, and looking at them… These albums followed me permanently. As a student, they sat in my little university room. All my friends without exception were entitled to a viewing that could last an entire evening. I then had my first SLR (always analog... the thing with film), with which I started to take photos other than to keep memories. It was at this time that I developed an artistic side in my photos. I liked to photograph particular things, details that people didn't look at or see. I went for a walk in nature and I took photos of tree roots, shadows, trunks… I photographed pigeons, plants, old stones, etc… It was also the time of my first black & white films. Then came the new digital era (youhouhou)! Having been used to film, I did not photograph without thinking (but it was still very nice and much cheaper...) A certain magic left with the film, moreover some photographers come back to it. One day maybe me too... Who knows? I started to subscribe to photo magazines, to look at my environment differently. But photography was then only a passion that I hardly had the time to practice... Then my studies finished, and I worked while continuing to photograph as soon as I had the opportunity. I was only an amateur but I did with my means and I liked it. It took some time before I really embarked on this crazy adventure, and in February 2014, I created my own business! I traveled at home (or outdoors) to do Pregnancy, Newborn and Family photo shoots, as I still do. But during the first 2 years, I proposed 2 ways of photographing during the same session: Natural and Pose (with accessories and backgrounds, almost like in the studio). There are indeed several ways to approach photography. I quickly realized that the "posed" and "props" part didn't suit me, but it took me a while to make the decision to completely stop this part. Now that I only do “natural” photos based on authenticity and emotions, I blossom more, I find myself and I take even more pleasure in photo shoots.
