Hey all!

I am Gianna and I currently study Fashion Photography at the award-winning Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. My excitement for portraiture runs deep in my soul, and I love what I do.

I have dedicated my professional life to providing the highest level of services possible and making the individuals I work with feel the best possible versions of themselves. My goal is to allow my clients to immediately get a sense of security, knowing that they're in good and capable hands. I always make sure that each client's vision is clearly and visibly understood and that your final products always exceed expectations. With 7+ years of field experience in portraiture, I have learned so much about people, both individuals and as a whole, and I am so lucky to have a job that allows me to connect deeply with those I work with and their families.

I extend a massive thank you to every single client I have had the pleasure of photographing in my short time as a professional photographer. With this being said, I hope you choose to be a part of my ever-growing family, as my clients and I have created a bond that runs deeper than just a transaction of service, but an amazing partnership of creativity.
