Silver Gelatin prints will be available in 2023 and upon request only.

What is the experience like?

Having your portrait taken on a large format camera is an experience like no other. You will have total privacy with Gabrielle, her camera, and if needed, one lighting assistant. We strive to create in a natural setting and are interested in locations that have an authentic and meaningful sense of place to you.

What is the process like?

Everything is processed in house, by hand, by Gabrielle. She has complete control of the process by developing each negative which involves an ample amount of care. 

Once your film has completed the developing process, each image is scanned by hand up to 20 megapixels resulting in a highly detailed digital scan.

Turn-around time varies per shoot, estimate is up to 7-15 business days for final delivery.

What is your printing process like?

All prints are done in the traditional darkroom, hand-processed in Gabrielle's studio. We use archival processes and environmentally friendly papers made in Germany since 1584.

Silver Gelatin prints, which are one-of-a-kind, will be available in 2023 and upon request only. If you booked with Gabrielle in 2022 and would like prints, please let us know and we will put it in queue and give you an estimate for the timeline along with a 10% discount on all 2022 prints.

We look forward to working with you!
