Roselyn S.

Gema has been our photographer for maternity and family photos and I would choose her every time. She made me feel beautiful during a time I had felt sick and exhausted for months, and I’ll always be grateful. Gema is talented, so kind and patient with little ones, and makes all her photos super accessible so you can choose exactly what you want. She will not disappoint!

Gema’s love for her clients and craft is seen and felt from beginning to end. She makes the process as seamless as possible and does everything to ensure that she executes our shoot to our exact vision. She explains her vision and direction. She plays a poppin’ playlist during the shoot, and she makes being in front of a camera C O M F O R T A B L E. I have had the privilege of working with Gema for an individual session as well as for a family session with my kiddos. There were no crying kids, only laughs and great shots taken. I think it’s safe to say my children even forgot we were at our photoshoot. She is a people’s person, genuine and kind through and through. We plan to continue to come to Gema for all of our future photography needs, for family and individually.

Vanessa c.

We have gone to Gema with The Gem Effect twice now and both times she didn’t disappoint! She’s very patient with children AND makes the shoot fun for them to the point that my kiddos ask when their next photo shoot is going to be 🤩 not only that but she captures the sweetest genuine shots and the final product is flawless work making them all look perfect! We can’t wait to book our next session with Gema and you will not be disappointed!
