Hello there! I’m Gemma, owner of Gem Photography. Thank you for taking time to visit and learn more about my work.

I’m always drawn to photographs that tell a story. Naturally, my background as a freelance writer and journalist is strongly reflected in the way I view the world through my lens. Authenticity and the small details of everyday life drive me as an artist and a devoted documentarian.

Being a wife, and mom to three awesome boys, my instinct has always been to document our days with honest images that show a hint of their amazing personalities and sometimes the chaos that comes with raising a house full of boys.

Gem Photography officially launched in 2009, however, I have been retelling people’s stories with words for more than two decades. These deep roots in storytelling are the foundation of my business as a family and wedding photographer.

As your a family photographer, I specialize in recording your story and uncovering beauty where you least expect it. For couples, I offer complete wedding coverage that tells the tale of your special day.

Let’s get in touch to discuss how we can create something truly unique from the moments that you want savour intensely.

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”

Marc Riboud
