Gabriella is unarguable beautiful, but even more so is her personality and her love for her family. From the moment I met Gabriella, I realize she is as special as her mama, Nora, who is also one CYW Photography’s makeup and hair artists. So, you know we all brought our A game for her senior portrait photo shoot! I mean who doesn’t love rocking out like a model for a day and all to the tunes of Beyoncé!
Now when you look at these pictures, you’re going to notice how incredibly gorgeous Gabriella (and Nora) is! But what I wish I could show (and hopefully I do somewhat in the pictures!) is how genuine, down to earth and kind hearted she is! Gabriella wrote me after her shoot and said “It gave me a kind of confidence I didn’t know I needed until yesterday.” and with those words she made me realize that we all struggle at times with confidence, whether we admit it or not. It makes me so incredibly happy to know that she had a true CYW Senior Experience where we help lift others through the process of us getting to know her and her getting to know herself. I already knew that I loved Nora and so meeting Gabriella and seeing them together was icing on the cake because they are absolutely adorable together and it is an honor she trusted me amongst all other san francisco bay area photographers to capture her daughter’s senior pictures to treasure always. Here are just some of our favorites. Gabriella and Nora, you are awesome!
Q: Do you think others perceive you the same way you perceive yourself?
A: Yes for the most part: A positive person that likes to go to sleep early! LOL
Q:What was something that was unexpected in your Senior year?
A: Not as stressed as I thought I would be. I guess it comes from my attitude and the way I was raised to always “tell yourself everything will be okay”.
Q: Do you have plans for a college major?
A: Yes, biology with a concentration in ecology and evolutionary science.
Q: If you could chose a million $ in cash or a job you love, which would you chose?
A: A job I love because I know I can make the money if I love what I do.
Q: What will you miss the most from your Senior year?
A: The people I grew up with in the same neighborhood since 6th Grade.
Q: If you could have a date with anyone, living or past, who would it be and what would you do?
A: Brandon Lee or Keanue Reeves and we would take a hiking trip to Croatia!
