a little bit about me

Hey mama, I'm Gaby.

I am a southern California native who met my husband, PJ, in high school. Together we have 4 really cute and totally exhausting children. Every day is a wild adventure with my kids ranging in ages 4 to 14. I like to have fun with motherhood- never taking myself too seriously while still trying to give everyone all the love and attention they need to thrive. I read novels in a single day- multiple each week, am a lover of waves, wildflowers, margaritas, and motherhood. I have always thought of myself as a little awkward which makes me the perfect person to photograph people who aren't always comfortable in front of a camera and turn them into supermodels.

If having four kids isn't proof enough, I love children. I haven't ever had a little one, no matter how camera shy, last an entire session without giving me sweet smiles by the end of it. Raising kids is hard and it's so much easier with genuine people in your circle and that's right where I want to be. I want to be your hype woman, your cheerleader, and the best photographer you've ever hired. When I'm behind the lens, I focus on small moments- the whispers in your ear, the sandy toes, the genuine connection between siblings and turn them into memories. My little ones are all growing up so fast and now, more than ever, I treasure our memories and family photos. To be a part of someone's story and capture their heart in photos has been one of my life's greatest joys.


Kind Words from clients



We were looking for a photographer in Carlsbad to take some photos, and we are so happy to have found Gaby! After our initial inquiry, Gaby was professional, friendly, and accommodating. We wanted to schedule a session at a bit of short notice, since we were only in San Diego for a few days, and she was able to figure out a time that worked for all of us. We had so much fun rolling in the waves and she kept us laughing the whole time.



Gaby isn't just a photographer, she's a memory maker. When our family does a session with her, she has a way of drawing out expressions and capturing moments that become precious treasures to us.



Gaby did my senior pictures and she was an absolute joy to work with! I was visiting from Sacramento and she was able to fit me into her schedule and produce photos that were exactly the vibe I was going for. She’s professional and will not hesitate to help you let loose if you’re nervous at first. I’d recommend her to anyone!
